He has been my doctor for almost 24 years and I can't ask for a kinder, caring and just all around genuine person. He has seen me through 5 back surgeries and 3 neck. I am so grateful for him sticking by me all these years and always listening to me. Anyone he sees should feel very lucky because he will take care of you.

Poor front desk management, wrong diagnosis

Dr, Botero missed the diagnosis, sent me to pain management, and pain killers. Much imaging, but no MRI ( still at high out of pocket costs to me ). For spinal experts, go to Spine and Scoliosis.... with one MRI, serious problem found in spine structure, kinda important!

Only experience we had with him was at hospital. Great bedside manner. Came by many times to check on husband. Only wish he did the procedure my husband needs. From trying to see Cabbell his office staff is HORRIBLE. Really like Botero.
