Mom to a constantly sick kid. Dr. Hotchkiss navigated me through a tough time, and actually listened to my concerns. She has been my sons saving grace! Any concern I have, we discussed and she got right to work! I Wouldn’t pick any other ENT! So glad we picked her, we’re the lucky ones.

The experience with this Provider and her wonderful Staff was absolutely amazing. It started with my initial call to schedule an appointment for my daughter. I connected with a young woman named Kathy who was helpful, bubbly, personable, and informative. Kathy was able to secure an appointment for the very next day which was absolutely amazing in itself. From check in to check out on appointment day, every person that interacted with me and my child was helpful, kind, informative, and engaging.

Dr. Hotchkiss has had all 3 of my kids as her patients. She is wonderful, she listens to any concerns and takes the time to discuss with you. She is great with the kids and makes sure the parent feels comfortable as well. I would not go to any other ENT. Whenever my kids had to go in for surgery, I knew they were in good hands with her.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! My son has been a patient for over 5 years and the respect, compassion and attentiveness that we have received from Dr. Hotchkiss and her staff has been nothing short of stellar. Dr. H listens to my concerns and takes everything I say seriously. She is also compassionate with my son who has grown fond of her and her office. In the five years that you son has been a patient, I have not one complaint or disappointment. This is truly top notch pediatric care.

Went to several Pediatric ENTs, and none of them were as good with BOTH the parents and the kids. I had zero issues knowing that my kids (two of them) would be with her in surgery after we met. She was conservative in her thoughts and suggestions, and did not jump to surgery right away. She spent as much time as we needed with her and was very supportive in whatever decisions we made. Love her! I would HIGHLY recommend her and her team!
