Excellent experience w/ Dr. Botek. Surgical options were described, but, due to pandemic, timing for procedures not clear. Dr. Botek is one of the best doctors I have consulted, and I have a high degree of confidence in her skills and practice. Additional specific & effusive praise was noted in earlier CCF survey bc I did not think there would be a separate survey regarding the doctor.

Reviewed on Nov 17, 2020

Dr. Botek is excellent in so many ways: expertise, engagement, clarity, concern, patience, and demeanor. As mentioned, I thought the last survey included her and I probably commented therein on details regarding Dr. Botek's care. My only hesitation in recommending her practice to others is that the wait for an appointment with her or a surgical procedure would be even longer.
