Friendswood, TX |
The moment I awoke from surgery the pain was gone. I felt very comfortable with his constant communication and explanations to help me improve the quality of my life. I trusted in him as a skilled surgeon and he followed through. I will recommend him to anyone. He is a gifted surgeon. He even has established a 2 month revovery program for me.

Dr. Kotecha is very straightforward and professional. He explained my injury very clearly and did my surgery. I get compliments on how clean the incision is and what a good surgeon I must have had.
