Ratings for Dr. Andries N. Botha
Dr Botha was my elderly mothers Doctor for many years and he treated her very respectfully; as a person and not just an old person. When she had concerns about her health he listened and so I was very impressed because he took very good care of her medically. I have been very fortunate to have him for my Doctor for many years.
How do I rate it when there is no category for competence, bed side manner or knowing boundaries with women patents? My parents both have skin cancer and I've had to have skin on their bodies removed. It was recommended to them that their children should be checked periodically for skin cancer as well. As a 47 year old woman, I think this is a good suggestion for me to get checked . So I asked Dr. Botha if I could get checked for skin cancer. He leaned over, raised up my blouse exposing my chest took a quick glance and said, "you don't have skin cancer". I felt assaulted. That was the last time I went to him. Later I finally got to see a skin specialist and had a place removed. I would not recommend Dr. Botha.
Dr....Botha......hmmmmmmmmmmmmm interesting fella kinda old school no nonsense kinda can be a bit harsh or blunt......... called me fat and outta shape thanks !!!!!! for telling me what i know kinda needed that so.... if your used to being pampered he might be a rude awaking for u but i think he means well
This office is absolutely outrageous. I saw Dr Botha once and he was to refer me to another doctor elsewhere. This took over two weeks. I called his office once requesting that he got back to me with a referral the next day. He did, but then his receptionist proceeds to tell me that he will no longer accept me as a patient because I was "rude." How is trying to keep on top of my health because he wont, rude? Good riddance. I would never recommend this man or his RUDE staff!
Our first visit to Dr. Botha will be our last. He was very behind due to a large family appointment (not his fault and understandable) and sadly, you can hear every word said in his exam rooms with single beds as exam tables - ?!? He certainly made up time by going through FIVE patients in TEN minutes (I was watching). When my son was called into the room, he didn't even introduce himself to my son or me, just barked questions. Also refused to listen to my son's answers as he was already ranting that if he can workout 2.5 hours/day, my son can do 200 sit-ups. very disappointing as someone who is so interested in fitness could be an ally and inspiration to people, not a demeaning bully.
