*Dr. Dotson is wonderful & we think an excellent doctor!


He even gave a coupon to get inhaler first time free saved us $50.00 to see if it will work for me first.


You'll never know how much this appointment has meant to me and will have a lasting impression on my life. Thank you.


all everything was s u p e r


I have great deal of confidence in Dr Dotson and respect


Very good doctor.


Dr. Dotson is a very busy person. I have family members who have seem him so I was very PLEASED that he was willing to see me. Have high respect for him. It is hard to get appointments he is booked so far out. But they were willing to work with me. Thankful for his help


*Dr. Dotson was very understanding about all of my health problems. He explained several different issues I had about my health.


Was very satisfied with *Dr. Dotson. Dx was explained to me so that I now have understanding of my condition. Dr. took time to listen and answer my questions.


Dr. Dotson is able to provide facts about my terminal illness in a way that is both informational and compassionate. He is extremely helpful, thorough, and reassuring. Best doctor that I've seen in my 45-month journey with Stage 4 lung cancer.


This doctor has always been very helpful to me and his staff as well!


I have great confidence in *Dr. Dotson. I am fortunate to have him as my doctor.


Provider scheduled appointment right after diagnostic testing to discuss results. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! Eliminates stress of worry over results. Wish ALL providers would do this. I t is smart, taking care of patients concerns immediately!


I felt like we got off to a rough start because I vented my frustrations to the medical student/resident (not sure which) regarding their tardiness. Once we moved past that I think Dr. Dotson was great. I think he will be a good fit for me going forward. Super nice guy who showed concern for my condition I feel like he will be easy to work with and understand what options I may have pending a diagnosis.


#1-10. Very good.


Think he is "tops," outstanding.


Excellent in all ways!


Patient (my husband) has lung cancer and Alzheimer's. *Dr. Dotson is wonderful in making sure he talks to my husband & tries to engage him as much as he will engage. *Dr. Dotson is the only physician we have that treats him this way & it makes a tremendous difference!! True professional.


I think *Dr. Travis Dotson is an excellent doctor very caring.


At this appointment, talked about my increasing worst shortness of breath & my desire to go under hospice care. *Dr. Dotson listened to me & my wife, discussed my condition in detail and offered to write the orders for hospice. He took all the time we required to discuss & advise us on this health problem and prognosis.


*Dr. Dotson is the best lung specialist I have ever had. Always caring and concerned with my care.
