Dr. Botek is an outstanding podiatrist. She performs diabetic maintenance on my feet, assesses need for medication and makes suggestions for future care. She is professional, welcoming and despite the amount of patients recognizes me as an individual and is concerned about my health. In my opinion her pace is exhausting. I hope she does not become discouraged with her work load and retire/leave as some of my other favorite Cleveland Clinic doctors have done.

Dr. Botek was great. We normally see another doctor but because of the mishap with scheduling, she had an open appointment available. She was thorough, attentive, and explained what she was doing, how she was doing it, and checked for understanding before moving to the next step. She also made some recommendations related to follow up and an additional referral related to care. In addition, she actually READ the chart prior to coming into the room, which was an indication to us that she had done her homework and was making suggestions/referral/etc based on my actual needs/issues instead of just something standard that you tell all patients.
