Patient Reviews

The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Botti.

“5* Dr. Botti was extremely patient, thorough and confident at the pre-op appointment. He answered all questions I had and took his time to explain what was wrong with my shoulder and how he planned to fix it. I'm in my 3rd week of recovery and all is going well.”

“Dr.Botti is knowledgeable, pleasant in his conduct, as he listened to my particular concerns while making a decision to proceed with a full replacement knee surgery, and helped me make a rational choice to go ahead with the procedure. He was realistic about the prognosis as he explained both, the positive, as well as negative aspects of the process. At that point the positive well exceeded the negative, and I went to this surgery with a complete trust and positive attitude. The surgery went well and I am progressing with the rehabilitation right on, or maybe even ahead of the schedule. I expect a significant improvement when the rehab is completed. Kirk, his assistant was very helpful, as were the nurses and office staff I encountered along the way. As a former professional athlete, I would recommend Dr.Botti to anyone with a pressing joint problems.”

“Dr. Botti has been both supportive and informative in regard to both surgeries I have had to undergo due to an work-related injury. He is on time for scheduled appointments and apologetic if running a bit late due to unforeseen circumstances in attending to other patients. He has engaged in a respectful and professional manner regarding my care and treated me as an individual patient without bias or comparison, which effectively assists me in recovery and the ongoing treatment process. He has also provided me with opportunities to discuss in depth my medical treatments and direction, and has shown empathy for the lengthy process I continue to struggle with in terms of gaining a full recovery.”

“The whole staff was very accommodating and patient with me due to all my different medical problems. I interviewed three doctors for my shoulder work. One was even in my town, but I chose Dr. Botti. Dr. Botti was outstanding regarding plain language explanations and answering all my questions, even some of the off-handed commentary I did. I highly recommend them to anyone. I have already sent some people over there. I came from 3 hours away.”

“I felt Dr. Botti took the time to explain my condition, options, and future treatment. He listened to what I had to say and answered my questions. I did not feel rushed and was very pleased with my visit. His PA was also very attentive and professional. The X-ray staff and the person who performed the ultrasound were very caring and respectful. I left feeling I had an understanding of my condition and how to treat it. That is not always the case, and I appreciate the time taken to explain everything to me in understandable language.”

“I was told that I needed a shoulder reversal. Dr. Botti reassured me he could repair with excellent results. I feel much relieved. I thought my trip from Cottonwood to Flagstaff might be not favorable; boy was l wrong. The confidence of Dr. Botti was a significant relief to me. Raymond G.”

“After suffering an accident resulting in the complete tear of two of the four tendons in the rotator cuff, my primary care physician recommended that I see Dr. Botti in Flagstaff. Living 40 miles south of Kingman, I asked if there was anyone locally that I could see. He responded as follows, "If my wife or child required this type of surgery, this is the doctor I'd send I would send them to." I immediately booked a consultation appointment with him. Dr. Botti was my second opinion, so I thought I knew what to expect. I was wrong. He reviewed the MRI results with me and explained what needed to be done to repair the damage and the importance of rehab in determining the level of success of this procedure. He also revealed that there are instances where the original tendons are in bad shape and need to be replaced using muscles from their tissue bank. He told me that my tendon damage would be repaired when I left the hospital, and the rest was up to me (rehab). I am writing this 24 hours post surgery and can only say that if a loved one of mine required this surgery, this is the surgeon I would want to do the procedure.”

“I dislocated my knee cap due to patellar instability. As a result, I tore my medial patella femoral ligament. Dr. Botti and P.A. Butler assessed the situation and determined the ligament needed to be reconstructed. They discussed the entire surgery and process with me. I felt very comfortable and felt I knew exactly what they had planned for treatment. They scheduled the surgery as quickly as possible. They kept me updated along the way. The surgery itself went great. Dr. Botti came to talk to me after the surgery to discuss how it went. Everything went great. I greatly appreciate all the staff at Flagstaff Bone and Joint. They are always polite and professional. They make me feel comfortable. Going to Flagstaff Bone and Joint is the best decision I could have made.”

“Dr. Botti was awesome and my healing process went exactly as he stated it would. A big pat on the back to his staff, Kirk and Heidi, were great also. I can't remember the other nurses' name but she also needs a pat on the back. I had a minor hand surgery. And it went so well I was back to work before they estimated I would be. This is one of the main reasons, I chose to have Flagstaff Bone and Joint provide the care I would need. I live in Kingman and chose the travel knowing I would be getting the BEST of the BEST. Thank you.”

“I can't say enough about Dr. Botti and staff at Flagstaff Bone and Joint. Dr. Botti repaired my shoulder and I have had no problems to this date. He also did a total knee replacement on me and I'm better than I was when I walked in that morning.”

“Dr. Botti has magic fingers. He answered whatever question I had and did everything he could to help me get back on my feet. For the most part, he let me be in as much control as he could, which made the experience, if not totally pleasurable, then something that wasn’t as scary as it could have been. I took the option to be awake during surgery, with nerve blocks. It was odd, but it meant I was on my feet sooner, and didn’t have to deal with post-anesthesia problems. His PA, Kirk Butler, also helped with the answers, and allowed me the freedom to figure out what manner of pain management I wanted to do.”

“Dr. Botti is a highly skilled professional and resolved my on going problems with my knee. I thought I would need surgery and he resolved the problem with physical therapy and a steroid shot in the knee. I'm 69 years old and have arthritis in both knees which isn't going away, but at least now I have learned a set of daily exercises which 99% of the time keeps me pain free and functional. I learned what to do to help myself and what not to do to hurt myself. Dr. Botti performed knee surgery on a friend of mine, and she highly recommended him since her surgery went very well.”
