Dr. Botek is amazing. She shows care and concern and also is incredibly knowledgeable. She asked the right questions and was able to pinpoint the problem with my foot (nerve issue). She made recommendations but was also interested in the route I wanted to try to help resolve the issue. Ultimately her recommendations and prescribed anti-inflammatory seems to have resolved the issue but she provided other options in case they don't work or it is recurring. I would and have recommended Dr. Botek to others!

Like probably all of Dr. Botek's patients, I wish it didn't take so long to get an appointment with her, but I think she is an outstanding doctor so I understand why she is in such high demand. I do wish the person who scheduled my first appointment had mentioned the cancellation list. I only found out about it when I called several weeks later to check for possible cancellations. The scheduler for my next appointment mentioned the list herself when I scheduled the appointment.

Reviewed on Apr 5, 2019

When I saw Dr. Botek my foot problem had steadily worsened for five months, lowering my overall quality of life and causing distress and anxiety. I had seen three other podiatrists and an orthopedic specialist in the previous months. Dr. Botek was the only doctor who understood that the standard treatment recommended or provided by the others would not work for me because of the unusual structure of my feet. Her opinion accorded with my experience over the past decade instead of invalidating it as the others had done. In addition to her explanation, she provided detailed treatment recommendations involving exercise and footwear. I think her clinical insight is outstanding, and the visit has given me hope that my problem can be treated.

This was my first visit with this doctor. I had to wait 3 months for an appointment with her. I patiently waited for someone to cancel so that I would get in quicker. But that never happened. I had someone ask me how I managed to get an appointment with her, and I just told them I waited 3 months for my appointment. So you just have to do the same. Make the appointment and wait for it to arrive. That proves she is a very fine doctor. I have fungus in my toenails and she clipped them very low and gave me a prescription to put on my toes. Hopefully, it will work. The podiatrist I had been going to said there was nothing he could do for it. I guess he just didn't want to be bothered. So I go back in three months for a check up with her.

I have been a diabetic (type 1) for over 45 years and have had major issues with foot ulcers. With Dr. Botek's care I was able to go to the Galapagos Islands, walk the beeches, scuba dive, and walk up rocks that a few years ago would have been impossible tasks.
