Dr. Dott is a wonderful OBGYN. He did my last C-section and did a wonderful job, I was up and going a week later! Iím pregnant for the 3rd time and having another C-section. I have comfort knowing he... is doing my C-section. He is a great Doctor!!!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Dr. Dott is a miracle worker! I had been dealing with my medical issues for over 2 years and saw 8 doctors (2 of which were gynecologists) before finally discovering Dr. Dott. He solved my problems... in one visit. He not only is a genius, but he also has the kindest bedside manner. He is a problem solver and thinks outside the box, which I found is very rare with many doctors. From now on, I will be going to Dr. Dott for my annual visits, as well as for any gynecological problems I may have.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
My partner and I came to Dr. Dott just over a year ago because my partner needed a hysterectomy. We had both avoided GYN appointments as long as possible because of bad experiences and discrimination with previous providers. Dr. Dott provided excellent counselling and thoughtful care before, during, and after my partner's surgery, and now he's my doctor, too. His office staff has always been kind and respectful, and we've never had any trouble getting appointments in a reasonable amount of time. He also returns phone calls promptly. I would not hesitate to send any friends or family to Dr. Dott.

One of the 1st questions Dr. Dott asked me was if I thought I should continue my pregnancy. Yes, I have health problems and am on medications, but I have a 3 year old who I carried with exactly the same conditions. So after Dr. Dott suggested I have an abortion and I said that was not an option for me, he asked several other degrading questions in a VERY condescending tone and finally ended with 'I don't want to get involved in this.' And at that he dismissed me, in total shock, from his office. The office girls are pleasant and I guess if you need a basic doctor to guide you through a typical pregnancy, he may be for you. However, if you have anything abnormal or complicated with your pregnancy (or pre-pregnancy self), I HIGHLY suggest you find a doctor that doesn't mind actually working. I have NEVER been treated that way by ANYONE, let alone a physician that takes on oath to not do harm to others!!! In my personal opinion, he is uncaring, cold, and lazy.
A physician needs to gather enough information to determine if he is the right practitioner to provide care for someone. A physician has the responsibility to be honest with a prospective patient. When a prospective patient is high risk, it is important to be honest about the risk factors and to indicate if you feel you can provide appropriate care. I care for many high risk patients with good results. This prospective patient had many health issues which included the used of multiple addictive medications. A woman needs to be realistic about what is safe for her and which of her health issues and medications may potentially cause harm her unborn child. Based on her health issues and the risks that the use of multiple addictive medications posed to her unborn child, I suggested she find another care provider.

I found Dr, Dott on this site and now I know why he has such rave reviews. I'm past the childbearing years so I've seen him for potentially serious gynecologist issues. He put me at ease, was compassionate and very knowledgable and quickly resolved the problems. I couldn't believe how quickly he allowed me to see him and he even answered my email himself. His staff is very friendly and the office is sunny and bright. I'm very pleased to have found him!
The Best Doctor EVER !!!! Ladies he will make everything so easy for you .. I deliver my baby in 15 min with this doctor made it so easy I love this doctor best ever !!!!! and my baby is 5 now
This is my 2nd. pregnancy with Dr. Dott. He is a very experienced and caring Dr. I had many questions with my 1st. and he always answered them clearly putting my mind at ease. His staff is very professional and I have never waited more than 10 min for a visit! Last week, I had a scare on Christmas Eve and called the after hours line. He called me back within 30 min and opened and met me at his office to give me an examination to avoid me from having to go to the ER. He truly cares about his patients and my husband and I recommend him to anyone!
I've always been apprehensive with previous OBG-YNs. The moment my husband and I met Dr. Dott we loved him. He actually cares and takes the time to answer any and all questions. He removed a cyst from my ovary leaving no scar tissue and delivered my beautiful baby girl naturally. Dr. Dott and his staff have made my pregnancy a wonderful experience. I recommend his practice to everyone I know.
Dr. Dott is a kind-hearted doctor with a lot of experience. He truly listens to his patients & allowed me to achieve a natural birth despite it being a known Footling breech. Northside Hospital gets a bad rap for being a c-section factory, but he is the diamond in the rough & trusts the mother's intuition. If you want to go naturally at Northside, Dr. Dott is THE WAY TO GO.
I had to switch doctors at 30 weeks pregnant and was a little nervous about getting a new doctor so far along. I went to Dr. Dott's practice and loved how intimate it was and you aren't treated like a number. They also eliminate those annoying forms by using electronic pads that are easy to use in their office. Dr. Dott and his nurse are a wonderful duo. The nurse is really sweet and friendly and Dr. Dott sits down with you, gets to know you and your situation before your appointment. Let's face it, it's awkward having someone probe your body, but having a one-on-one beforehand is calming. He also has a sense of humor and is very nice. The thing I loved most about Dr. Dott is that he's very informative and knows what he's talking about - no question is a dumb question. I would recommend him to any of my females friends, expecting or not!
I highly recommend Dr. Dott. He removed a 17(+)cm cyst that was attached to my ovary. The doctor who diagnosed the cyst wanted to do a full hysterectomy because he believed a woman over 40 didn't need her female organs anymore. I didn't agree and he didn't care to listen to my opinion. I found this site and was impressed with the reviews and emailed Dr. Dott about my problem. He promptly replied, which immediately impressed me. Dr. Dott not only listened but made me feel included in determining my medical treatment and that was "priceless." The surgery went great and I am grateful to have found a doctor with excellent credentials who values his patients' opinions.
Dr. Dott is extremely caring and knowledgeable. I am so thankful to have had him deliver my baby, and feel that I received excellent care, both prenatally and in the delivery room! I highly recommend him!
When I was 22 weeks pregnant I was under the care of another OB. I had fevers, severe abdominal pain, lethargy and nausea for months. They could not diagnose my problem. Dr. Dott, within 5 days had my problem diagnosed, in surgery and fixed. My baby and I are happy and healthy, thanks the awesomeness of Dr. Dott. He doesn't just evaluate the baby but looks at the whole patient, a wonderful change from most OB physicians. I highly recommend him! The birth was also wonderful, as it was quiet and calm (just him, my husband and nurse). A welcome change from my other 2 deliveries where there were several people in the room. He is the best!
Dr A.Dott & his staff are comppassionate knowledgable & most of all like family. Truly irreplaceable
I have had 2 healthy children while under Dr.Dotts care. He came to me highly recommended by a friend and since then I have recommended him too 4 of my friends whom have all had wonderful experinces while under his care. He is the best doctor I have ever known. He truly cares for each of his patients. I could not have asked for more.
Dr.Dott came highly recommended by a friend. Im 36 and pregnant and I was looking for the right DR. and Dr. Dot takes his time with me each and every visit. The staff is very sweet. Dr.Dott has made this pregnancy a very exciting one for us. If your looking for a Dr. who will listen and makes you feel comfortable then you have found him Dr. Dott.
