Patient Reviews ? Write a Review
Initially, Dr. Botelho seemed like a caring and intelligent pain management doctor. However, it soon became clear that he was a charlatan and a fraud. I have seen dozens of doctors over the years and he is the only one I have written a negative review about. I have a condition that is somewhat rare, and instead of researching and learning about my disease, he decided that I was a hypochondriac. I even brought in books and medical articles about my disease and he couldn't be bothered to take the time to learn about my condition. Instead, he kept saying that he "didn't understand" where my pain came from. This was something that would have taken him five minutes to learn about. Apparently, he has only been a pain management doctor for five years. Before that, he was an anesthesiologist. He should stay in the surgery room and away from awake and feeling patients! He also prefers patients who get epidurals (as they pay more). Beware of this doctor! He comes off as charming and caring. I completely believed in him until I finally saw his true colors. I feel totally duped by him and I hope no one else has the experience I had. Unfortunately, I know other patients of his who had similar experiences. He is truly dangerous with his incorrect judgements and lack of knowledge when it comes to pain management. Please beware!
This doctor kept repeating over and over I don't want to reinvent the wheel. What does this mean? My Husband him point blank asked him are you afraid of the DEA? he nodded and quietly said yes.
Best very caring dr. I would recommend him to anyone excellent service all the way thanks
I appreciate that Dr. Botelho has my back when it comes to dealing with workers' comp.
Doctor Botelho and his office staff are 100% more professional and comforting than the last pain management doctor I went to. This was one of the main reasons I changed doctors. I have more positive things to say but not enough words allowed to type!
Dr. Botelho has been more in depth in diagnosis of my ailments than the surgical specialists I've seen. Easy to speak with as well as understand. I really appreciate his approach to short term relief with a vision of long-term resolution.
Dr. Botelho has been a big help in reducing my back and sciatic pain. He is both compassionate and knowledgeable.

Dr. Botelho is the best. He probably saved my life by recognizing that I needed a hip replacement. The pain was so intense I know I could not live with it much longer. Thank you, Doc.

Good visit over all.

Doctor Botelho is an awesome person,professional and friendly . He has always helped me physically and emotionally. I'll recommend his office to all of my friends.
Dr. Botelho takes care of what's wrong by talking with you, not at or to you, and works out mutually amenable solutions. You leave knowing you've been treated by a physician who truly cares for his patients. R. Davis
As usual my concerns were thoroughly addressed in a caring and professional manner.
Dr. Botelho always takes the time to go over my MRI in detail and answer any and all of my questions. He is never hurried with me and makes me feel like I am his only patient. I am always satisfied with my treatment and feel more informed upon leaving.
He already has his mind made up without even knowing you or listening to you.If he had his way he would put one of those electric Stimulators in you.Do not want to be cut open again.Go somewhere else.
Please remind me what the name of the procedure is for C5-6 CES and is it a Cordisobe shot I am to receive? Thanks Steve
Very unhappy that Samantha is leaving.

Very informative, explained the whole procedure and showed me on the computer exactly what he was going to do. F/U today and I'm doing well. Thank you.
After many years of chronic pain, it is refreshing to find a physician who still truly cares about their patients as a whole, including what possible repercussions/side effects a treatment might cause. I finally feel I am in capable hands. Thank you Dr B!
I enjoyed Dr. Botelho's straight forward approach.

This was my first appointment with this doctor. It was totally satisfactory.
Doctor Botelho is relaxed, easy to talk to and extremely perceptive. He knows how to frame his questions so that the patient can share his/her needs in a clear way. When the subject is pain, which can be difficult to quantify, this is critical.
The visit was thorough and very informative. Dr. Botelho is a very good listener. Well worth the wait.
