Excellent. He knew what to do every step of the way: testing for diagnosis and deciding about emergent need for surgery, advising about prep for surgery, and performing laporoscopic surgery. He gave good advice about post op needs and nutrition. His office visits and staff were timely and friendly. The hospital stay at Lansdale-Abington-Jefferson was calm and professionally managed nurse care. His partner, Dr. Phu, managed my case at the hospital as directed by Dr. Bothwell who went on vacation. I appreciated his decision to do the surgery and not let it wait. I had colon surgery which testifies to his excellence as a general surgeon even though it's not listed as his 'specialty.' I would recommend Dr. Bothwell highly.

I came to Dr. Bothwell because of his experience at North Penn Hernia Institute. He is very attentive, detailed, knowledgeable, and spent considerable time explaining the procedure, its outcomes, and answering my questions. As a result I chose him for my surgery. Hope it goes well.

Dr. Bothwell has given me my life back. I've had several bouts of diverticulosis and lived in fear every day. If I did not have bowel movement every 2 to 3 days I thought the dreaded disease was back. I went to the ER much too frequently. My GI wanted me to have an open intestinal surgery and got me to see Dr Bothwell that week. I cannot say enough about the care, compassion, and skill provided to me. After the surgery I was still scared but now I feel like Dr. Bothwell gave me back my life!
