    • “Several years ago when Dr Kottemann was on a real Medical leave, I selfishly wondered what would we do without him and his great compassion for his patients and his vast knowledge. Sure we would find another doctor, perhaps get the same great care, however, this was not the case. Dr Kottemann did return to his practice and life went on for us. Since that time, we have spent more time then we could have imagined in his office. He has referred us to several specialists when the illness was out of his realm of comfort. As often the case with specialists, we turned to Dr Kottemann to get our results and the real meaning behind them. Never once did he tell us to call the specialist, he just dug through all the information and gave it to us in terms we could understand. I would cope with losing him as a doctor if it was a legit reason such as his health but I hate seeing him treated in this manner. Dr Kottemann would never treat anyone with such disrespect as MMC in treating him. And I don’t believe MMC when they say they are only saving us – saving us from what? A dictatorship??”
  • “Dr.Kotteman is one the best! Just bring our DR. Kotteman Back This man has been our Dr. for 35 year. And has seen us through many things.”
  • “I don’t need a 15 min Dr, or a computer whiz… I need a doctor that cares about me and my family. I have that in Dr. Kottemann. When our daughter died in an accident many years ago, he came to our home and to the visitation and funeral. How many other dr would do that. I trust him completely. Charles and Gayla Smith family(patients of Dr Kottemann)”
  • My family and I have been patients of Dr. Kottemann’s for over 15 years. He has been there for us with the chronic diseases of my two sons. We don’t mind waiting to see him if he goes over time with other patients, because we know that when it is our turn in the office he will address all of our concerns and answer all of our questions, just like he does for everyone else. Couldn’t care less about whether or not he can use their computer system either. People you can count on in life are worth fighting for. This isn’t over for his patients. Suzanne Tockey and family

  1. I have been a patient of Dr. Kotteman for more than 25 years. He has always been caring and compassionate and when I left his office I always knew the reasons for any treatment he prescribed. I usually took a book because I knew he would be running late – but I never minded, because I knew when it was my turn, I would have his full attention. I am outraged over the way he has been treated. I am also disgusted with being “handed over” to some other doctor the medical center chose with no input on my part. We need Dr. Kotteman back, computer skills or not. I hope the medical center learns what a wave of disgust it has unleashed throughout this community and beyond!

    • Thank you, Nancy! If Dr K’s patients have any say about it, there will be consequences for the disrespect shown both to Dr K and to his patients. The Facebook page ‘Support Dr Kotteman’ has almost 450 members in only 1 week! I think that exemplifies how much he is loved and appreciated by all his patients. It is time for us to return kindness to him for all he has done for us. Your testimonial will be included in tomorrow’s article. Thanks so much!
