Dr. Trotter saw my two year old back in the springtime, for what I suspected was an allergy to eggs and nuts that caused severe itching. Dr. trotter did not test my daughter for allergens and instead just recommend we continue exposing her to these suspected allergens to help her grow out of it. This was HORRIBLE advice as she kept having reactions and i made an appointment with a new allergist (which took me approximately six months to get). During that time i stopped exposing my daughter to these allergens because of my mother's instinct. After thorough testing, we have discovered my daughter's peanut, tree nut, and egg allergies are SEVERE. Dr. Trotter's advice without testing literally put my daughter's life at risk.

So this was the third or forth visit to dr. Trotter and I was really disappointed by the front desk. Every time we came - we had to wait at least 20-30 min past our appt time to see the doctor. We usually were 10 min early. This time we ran 10 min late bc of traffic and then the desk lady tells me that they werent sure if were coming so they had to take someone else first. All the while the physician is sitting behind her chatting with staff. Really? I am a doctor and this was sad. They basically are saying its ok if they don't honor my time regularly and make me wait but the one time we are late - they aren't going to cut me slack with a 2.5 yr old. Especially when I see the doc sitting there. She is a good doc overall in practice but not impressed with the front desk staff or administrative aspect of the office. Might be time to find someone else. There are a lot of good docs - not a lot of good practices.
One of the best doctors I've ever had!

People have become so cynical about doctors, their staff, diagnosis, and pushing meds - but all I can do is boast about Dr. Trotter and the entire staff. I love each and every one of them. They are the most caring people I've ever come across and have been able to work with me because I don't have insurance (asthma and allergies are expensive). I've never been denied an appointment and I've been able to get emergency prescriptions (when I either ran out or forgot to pack my meds) sent to pharmacies across the country. Besides the normal check-up, Dr. Trotter treats the whole person and gets him or her on a practical management program that fits the respective lifestyles of her patients. It's an incredible team. They treat me as an adult (which I am)and explain everything and answer all my questions. Their med dosing schedule sheet is fantastic and easily followed. There is mutual trust here and I feel totally at ease and safe.
