Currently being under care of Dr Dott. Having 3rd baby girl :) Older 2 daughters were cared and delivered by him as well. Great staff too. Very, very pleased.
Dr. Andrew Dott has taken care of me for both my pregnancies. He is very trustworthy and I can always call him (doesn't matter the time) with any questions or concerns. The staff there is amazing and... always greet with a smile. I would definitely and highly recommend him and his team for any mothers to be. Thank you so much Dr. Dott and thank you as well ladies :)VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
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.
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.
Dr.Dott is an amazing physician he is very at tentative and truly makes you feel like you are the only patient that he has, for me being pregnant with twins was met with a wide array of emotions. I was so thrilled to have seen Dr.Dott on EVERY visit, he is just truly amazing he was so comforting and understanding, he actually made the 10-months of being pregnancy feel like a breeze, Dr. Dott delivered for my husband and I 2-beautiful healthy little girls FULL-TERM and I really appreciate him for that. Dr.Dott also comes complete with competent office staff as well, you will love, love, love Dianne and Cathy they are just the bomb, this office definitely sets the tone for what real patient care is, if you are looking for top notch OB care, look no further. Dr.Dott is a diamond in the rough.
I've visited Dr.Dott for almost 6months. He is very professional and he is ready to answer any of your questions. Because this is my first pregnancy and it is easy for me to get upset about everything, but Dr.Dott is so patient to help me get relax. Other two staffs in his office are very helpful and sweet. I really recommend this doctor to you.
I have never had a doctor sit with me in their office and discuss what I needed out of my doctor-patient relationship, expectations for the possibility of future children etc. This doctor's caring attitude about his patients is so seldom seen in other doctors these days. Very warm and friendly office staff. Currently not in the market for a baby, (just routine gyn app.s) but I really wish I were. Best doctor, hands down, that I have ever been to. (got lost on my way in to find the office)
I recommend Dr. Dott to any woman suffering through menopause. I received a hysterectomy with oopherectomy at the age of 22. I am almost 39 now. I have felt like half of a woman for quite a long time. Dr. Dott gave me a whole new lease on life. He listened to my problems, did a thorough exam, and then plotted my course to becoming a woman who feels whole again. I cannot stress enough how indebted I am to him for helping me. My husband recently went with me to a procedure and found Dr. Dott to be very kind, knowledgeable and very easy to open up with. Thank you Dr. Dott....
I changed to Dr. Dott @ 33wks preggers and im so happy I did! Dr. Dott is a very caring doctor and he will make you feel comfortable from the start. The Office staff, (Kathy and Dianne) are like the dream team. The doc was concerned and was attentive with all of my questions. He made sure I had all of the resources I need for when I deliver and also put me on with a pediatrician. On my way out the door, the staff provided me with a gift pack. I was told by my old doctor that I would not receive anything until AFTER my baby was born. Dr Dotts' office proved them wrong and showed them out! I only wish that I would have been going 2 him from the start of pregnancy.
After reading all the reviews on this website I decided to call doctor Dott's office, they got me in the following week. I had a history of ectopic pregnancy (tube removed) and miscarriages, Doctor Dott told me on my first visit that I will have a healthy baby and I sure did. I never had to wait more than 15mn (if I even had to wait) I always get in immediately. Plus I only had to see Dr Dott not like other offices (different midwife each visit), He will take time to answer all your questions, also if you do call the office; your calls get returned the same day (Dr Dott called himself once) ...Great Doctor, (Cathy and Diane are also GREAT). I highly recommend him.
Dr. Dott is outstanding. I went to him after reading reviews and his bio online...still one never knows. When I arrived the staff was efficient, Dr. Dott has a wonderful demeanor, takes time to answer questions, and is completely professional. I moved to Atlanta never expecting to find a doctor as good as the one I left...I'm so relieved and impressed...I'll be going to him for years to come.

i tried to make an appt when i was 12 weeks pregnant. i was told dr. dott was on vacation the week i needed. after that, i would be out of town for 5 weeks, so i scheduled an appt. for the 6th week when i returned. when i arrived at the office,in my 17th week of pregnancty, the receptionist said he was on vacation again! i told her i had an appt and that i made it 6 weeks ago. i asked her why wasn't i told. she showed me a piece of scratch paper that had a few names on it and said that i am 'not on the list'! i was offered to make another appt over two weeks later! i needed to be checked then! not two weeks later. at least she could have put me in the next day! this is how they run their office. what kind of doctor takes vacations every month? what kind of office is so irresponsible that they can't make proper appts?!!! i told her i will never be back! what a joke of an office. i think their families are the ones that wrote those reviews!

Dr. Andrew Dott and his staff are committed to providing sensitive and personalized care. We use the most modern appointment and scheduling programs to insure accuracy in our scheduling operations. Dr Dott had a family emergency with the pre-term birth of his third grandchild and had to leave his practice to meet his family's need. Cross coverage was arranged with three outstanding physicians on the staff at Northside Hospital. Every patient who had a scheduled appointment was notified and rescheduled for the following week and a written record was kept of all of these calls. Unfortunately, we could not identify "Truth Sayer" as having an appointment or we certainly would have contacted her. Unfortunately, with two weeks of work scheduled for the following week, we could only fit in emergencies. I am sorry that "Truth Sayer" felt disappointed and I would like to discuss her experience with her.
I have been going to Dr Dott for 14 years and would never change. My daughter has also been going to him for that long and he delivered her baby. Although she now lives in Miami, she still comes back to him. He is the best.
did not have to wait long, good service, had a full waiting room and I was concerned my first visit would be my last, but they moved people in quickly. I still did not feel rushed since I had all of my questions written down and the doctor answered all to my satisfaction in an efficient manner. The exam was quick but thorough.
I had my appt. with Dr. Dott on 5/13/08. His staff was very friendly and professional. Dr. Dott listened to all of my concerns.He seemed very personable and genuinely interested in my well being. I will definitely refer him to all of my family and friends.
I decided to go to doctor Dott's office after reading all the reviews on Kudzu.com, all I can say is that Doctor Dott was great, very professional, and pleasant to communicate with, one thing that bothered me from day one until today is the lady working at the front "Cathy" the first time she was shewing gum out loud for the whole time I was there, the other visits she won't even great me when I walk in, I had more than three visits to that office and it is the same way with her every time and I think if change her attitude just a bit that office will be PERFECT ....I will still visit the office because of Doctor Dott, also I never have to wait (not like other offices)also the nurse is great...and I will recommend doctor Dott to anyone...

Visited Dr. Dott after a miscarriage and awful care from another doctor's office. I called a doctor that keeps up with my hypothyroidism and asked for a recomendatation for an obgyn that would be familiar with hypothyroid. I was referred to Dr. Dott. We met before my pregnancy and discuss the use of progesterone due to my first miscarriage and the thyroid issues. I really believe his wisdom and proactive attitude allowed me to carry my babies! He delivered all 3 of my children. He did a wonderful job and Diane and Cathy are great to work with. They are all very understanding and help to meet your needs. He is not a rigid doctor or an office that you never know who you will see. He actually remembers your name and who you are. I guess at least when you have 3 kids in 5 years! It really was a pleasure receiving care from his and his office.
I've been going to Dr. Dott for several years now and two of my friends also go to him. Last year my insurance changed and I went to a female doctor, it just wasn't the same. Dr. Dott makes you very comfortable and cares for each of his patients. LOVE HIM!!!
