Today is my son’s 27th birthday, when he was born he experienced breathing problems, if not for Dr. Kottemann, he wouldn’t be alive to to celebrate this milestone…. I want to say THANK YOU Dr. Kotteman! ~comment from Lori Charron-Bleess
- My mother and I were talking about this the other day she has been very sick and we were talking about how great her specialist was but when it came time for her family doctor to see her he was all about having his face into a computer he barely even took the time to talk to her or look at her! 15 minutes are you for real how do you even begin to discuss a persons medical condition, examine them a…nd then diagnose them in 15 minutes! I just cant believe all this. Im sorry that Dr. Kotterman is a good doctor that cares about his patients enough to give them a thorough evaluation and a proper diagnoses. Dr. Kotterman isn’t even my family doctor I wasnt privalged enough to get him due to having a full patient load!
- I would of loved to have him but I am very happy to have my doctor I have she is great! I just wish Memorial would rethink all this because honestly their knew rule is going to kill alot of people because they will be wrongfully diagnosed and will become much sicker due to their ignorance and negligance ~comment from Kelly Barnes~
- This is in support of Dr. Steve Kotteman and to also show my disgust in the Memorial Medical system of how they perceive human life. Dr. Steve Kotteman has been, and if I have anything to do with it, will continue to be my family physician. For over 30 years, Dr. Kotteman has not only been a comfort in a time of need for us, but his professionalism combined with his compassion for his patients has always given me the confidence knowing when I needed someone with those qualities to treat my family I could always count on him to deliver. Dr. Kotteman always went that extra mile, always took that extra step, took that extra minute with us to make sure all the bases were covered before that diagnosis made. This is what people of compassion look for in a care taker. It is my understanding that Memorial is lacking in the fore mentioned paragraph but rather is only interested in the numbers that the Doctors under Memorial “Rule” can put out in a day. Kind of like factory work when you get paid by production. Memorial wants us to believe that there is caring and compassion involved with their day to day operations, but when you get a look at the behind the scenes as in the case of Dr. Kotteman you begin to see the real Memorial Medical System. Money, Money, Money, it appears is on their mind. And not caring and compassion, in combination with treatment. Shame on You ~comment anonymous~
- Dr Kottemann is a very understanding and caring Doctor! My son was very sick for about the first 2yrs of his life. If it wasn’t for the compassion that Dr. Kotteman has I don’t know what I would have done! He gave me his home and his cell phone number so that if needed I could contact him after business hours. On many occasions I unfortunately had to. He personally met me and my son at the ER. My son was admitted to St. Johns twice within a year. Not only did Dr. Kotteman keep in contact with the Dr. there, but he also called me several times to see how myself and my son were doing! I am very grateful for that. We could use more Doctors like him! I don’t understand how you could put a time limit on the care a patient gets from his/her Dr. when the time spent could be a matter of life or death! ~comment from Pamela Laubenstein~
