What People Say About Dr. Steven Shotts, MD

Dr. Shotts is an arrogant doctor & has no bedside manner. My tonsils were inflamed w/ulcers, infection, stones, blisters, bleeding, and swollen lymph nodes in my neck since July 31. I had been hoarse for 3 weeks, felt I had a lump in my throat, and had the Heimlich Maneuver due to choking by my inability to swallow. I saw Dr. Shotts because he had the earliest appointment. Now I know why! I saw him 8/20 after 3 weeks of suffering & explained the symptoms hoping he would help me... or at least WANT to. I was met with the opposite. I’m a 26 year old, adults don’t have chronic tonsillitis for no reason. He refused to look at records saying insurance wouldn’t cover a tonsillectomy because I’m not positive for strep. Never mind I’ve had tonsillitis 7 times/year the last 10 yrs. He claimed it’s allergies by shining a flashlight in my throat. He did NOTHING else. 4 days later I was at the ER for gushing blood. I found a doctor who listened and my insurance covered it! Go anywhere but here!

Possibly the WORST ENT in Louisville. I saw him once and it was one time too many. You would be better off to buy some nasal spray OTC, gargle salt water and tough it out. Honestly the worst doctor I have ever dealt with regardless of specialty.

I was absolutely stunned by horrible treatment shown to a young autistic gentleman in his office today. Hey had a wonderful mother that had complete control of him and did very well With him. When she made the appointment she told them he was nonverbal and Had autism and they said that was no problem. The rest of the staff was fine with him but the doctor was unprofessional to say the least. He should be ashamed of himself.

Horrific bed side manner... worst experience with a physician! Refused to examine my non-verbal, special needs son b/c he smacked him on the arm when he entered the room. He said "that behavior won't be tolerated" and told me he wouldn't even look into his ears let alone clean out the impacted wax without sedation. I apologized and told him that the schedulers were told that my son was autistic and what we needed done before I made the appt. and he responded "schedulers aren't doctors."

I had the great priviledge of meeting Dr. Shotts today.. I have never met a doctor that would not listen to what you had to say.. On two occasions he said that he wasn't concerned about my primary doctors opinion on what might be causing my vertigo. I tried to tell him some things that I had tried, .however he didn"t want to hear that either.. Please in the future,.respect what the patient has to say. I hope you were just having a bad day, if not find another job!!! .

Terrible Doctor!!!!! I have a problem with my right ear and he said that he saw nothing, and blew me off. I have a friend that is an audiologist that took pictures of my ear after Dr. Shotts looked at it. The problem was still there. It has cost me time and money and lots of stress. Avoid this guy at all costs!!!!

Dr.Shotts was OnCall at Baptist East when he was called to care for my husband who had sustained an extensive injury during a basketball game that had progressed to a critical state. Dr.Shotts presented to the ER to take my husband to immediate surgery. His pre-op explanation and his overall bedside manor gave me comfort knowing that my husband's life was in the best hands. From the pre-op to post op to follow up care Dr.Shott and his staff far exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend!
