What People Say About Dr. Michael Cotter, MD
Reply
Dr Cotter started as my GYN and became my OB too. He delivered both of my babies and I couldn't have asked for better care. My OB/GYN needs are more complicated than some but I've never worried or been made to feel like a challenging patient. Dr Cotter and all of his staff are fantastic. I'm pretty sad my relocation is going to necessitate a new doc. I'd recommend Dr. Cotter any day of the week and twice on Sundays :)

I had a horrible experience with Dr. Cotter. He is a friendly person, but as a doctor he was not the right person to give me the care I needed. I'm having complications (I'm 37 weeks pregnant with my 6th child) and he continued to brush off everything I was saying. Instead he wanted to talk about gun control and global warming when my blood pressure was running really high. I transferred to Shands because I've had great experiences there. I would not recommend Dr. Cotter.
