I actually enjoy...considering why I am seeking medical assistance...my visits. Dr. Trotter\'s office is one of the best facilities I have been to. I have over three decades of office visits due to my transplant history. The entire office is top notch, professional, respectful, courteous and genuine. Kudos to choosing such a great team.

The provider was kind, but I didn\'t get any information that I thought was necessary for my condition. I liked his bedside manner, but that is no good without knowledgeable answers to make me understand the decisions made. However, he is letting me talk to another doctor.
