Exceptional Surgeon, particularly for Achilles Tendon repair. Knowledgeable and professional, Dr. Cottom thoroughly explained all the options in attempting to meet my expectations, as well as accurately describing the journey to recovery, through casting, a walking boot, and physical therapy. To both my drive and desire, everything in the recovery process was delightfully accelerated, and I can say I've returned back to all prior athletic activities with the same aggression and no hesitation. If you need Achilles tendon surgery, this the RIGHT doctor.

You are in excellent hands with Dr. Cottom. I wouldn't go anywhere else. When I took a nasty fall and broke my right foot and ankle his was the name that friends and friends of friends kept recommending to me. On my first visit while in the waiting room I sat next to a lady who I found out had drove all the way over from West Palm Beach just to have Dr. Cottom do her surgery. Knowing all of this before even meeting him I was absolutely sure I was in the right place. I wasn't wrong. His staff was efficient, friendly and understanding. K.P. let me know that she could be called upon anytime after surgery should I need assistance. Dr. Cottom explained what would be done, what I could expect in the weeks to come and how long the recovery time would be. He shared how important physical therapy was to my resuming life like nothing ever happened and that in his office Dr. Diaz along with his therapists Pablo & Anna if I worked hard the results would follow. We take for granted getting out of bed every morning and putting both feet on the floor headed for the kitchen and that first cup of coffee until the day you can't. With Dr. Cottom as your Surgeon you know the day will come when you'll again be able to do just that.....patience is the key. Thanks Doc

I needed to find a good surgeon for my ankle. I met with Dr Cottom providing my reports and X-rays describing all the years of pain and injuries . He provided a solution explaining it in detail. The total ankle replacement was basically the only choice I truly had as I had difficulty walking and standing. We made the appointment for the surgery. He performed it at the best hospital ive ever been in. Dr Cottom and his staff are extremely professional. I give Dr Cottom a 10, his bedside manner was stupendous, kind and very conservative in treatment. The surgery went well and after the final cast was removed, I was able to apply pressure. If you follow his instructions, you will heal quickly. His staff was marvelous and always willing to help. Again, if you need a foot specialist, I highly recommend Dr Cottom.
