If I could give TEN **********STARS I absolutely would to this fine team of professionals. They speak plainly, thoroughly and explained in detail potential solutions for resolution of a longtime problem. The focus was strictly about a successful outcome without anything unnecessary or unrealistic. I couldn't be happier and now thankfully I am walking free of FOOT pain for the first time in over a DECADE! Their genuine caring and desire for my personal success and healing was evident from the moment I stepped through the door. Everyone had a high degree of integrity and were laser focused on a successful patient experience, extremely genuine and quite a few laughs along the way. With sincere gratitude, Larren P.

So glad I was referred to Dr. Cottom & Dr. Charles. They were very thorough in their examination, explained my options, and patiently answered my questions. Surgery is scheduled next week. I was seen on time for my visits. Office staff is professional and friendly. I would highly recommend these Drs. This experience was totally opposite of a prior experience I had with another Doctor.

Dr. Charles was caring & attentive, requesting specifics as he did initial exam. Then Dr. Cottom came in & was very detailed about what procedures he was going to do, as well as specific instructions & an extremely quick turn around on follow up. Very pleased with his bedside manner & concern for my well being. Would highly recommend!

My daughter, Chloe, had an injury that bothered her off and on for almost a year. After visiting a handful of other doctors and not getting any answers we came to see Dr. Cottom. He was amazing. He explained what was causing the pain and had a plan to help stop it. With Chloe being a volleyball player, she wanted to get back on the court as quickly as possible. Not only did Dr. Cottom get us into an MRI appt right away, he was able to get her into surgery within the week (on Christmas Eve)! Being the worried mother I am I had questions in the following weeks after surgery. My emails and phone calls were followed up quickly by KP, his assistant. Within 8 weeks my daughter was back on the courts. We both couldn’t be any happier with the results. Thank you Dr. Cottom, Dr. Charles, KP and the rest of your staff!

I am absolutely thrilled about everything with my 1st visit at this office. This is actually a 2nd opinion appointment on a pain in my foot. Everything from the front office and staff was completely different from the previous visit I had elsewhere. It was so welcoming. I didn't wait long at all, and the doctor spent a very nice amount of time with me properly diagnosing my condition. They did not rush the appointment at all, and took the time to educate me on what we were looking at in the xrays. I feel very trusting in Dr. Cottom and his staff and am SO glad I found them!!

I came in as a new patient and was seen on time. Dr. Cottom has a nice demeanor, is a good listener and patiently answered all my questions about my issues. Both receptionists were pleasant and friendly at the front desk. Overall, a great experience and would highly recommend to my other tennis playing friends!

I injured my foot while on a trip I checked for specialists in Sarasota and was impressed by Dr Cottom credentials, my doctor in Sarasota gave him a 100%, excellent. I made an appointment. Upon arrival at the office, I was greeted by the 2 ladies at the front desk, then by the nurse and X-ray's tech. All these ladies were professional and extremely friendly. A few minutes later, Dr Cottom arrived X-rays in hand. From the time he walked in I was impressed by his friendliness and caring ways . Dr Cottom spent A LOT OF TIME explaining my injury and ALL my options. I NEVER felt rushed though I had a lot of questions. I have not had the surgery yet but I have full confidence in Dr Cottom. I give the doctor full credit for the way his staff is run, the best I have come across in any doctors offices in Florida. I came in concerned but left confident. To sum up : dr Cottom is an excellent doctor

They were incredible. These doctors run a very organized operation and their staff were very nice to me as a new patient. I saw two doctors and both were informative and spent time answering my Questions. I would recommend them to anyone.

Went in for my 1st year follow up on my left ankle replacement. The staff and Dr. Cottom are exceptional, they never leave you in doubt or fail to answer any questions. The best of the best. I'm so glad I had Dr. Cottom perform my T.A.R, the surgery and recovery went with out any difficulties or unexpected problems. Highly recommend this team of professionals.
