Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Otto is on the cutting edge of cardiac technology and is a clinical researcher as well as a Cardiac specialist. I enjoy a person of her intellect and ability when I see her. She is not overly reactive to every situation, nor does she dismiss them. Calm, constant and effective. She will remain my heart Doctor.

2008. Best Dr I have ever had. She safes my life. Other Dr I saw in Olympia wouldn’t listen. Had very expensive testing.Told wouldn’t do anything til I lost weight. Have thyroid issues. Called DR Otto at suggestion of a friend. Went In for exam, injection type of testing and immediately was taken in for a stent. 95 % blockage. Saved my life. Trust yourself. You know when something is wrong! If you don’t feel you get the right care go somewhere else immediately. She is A VERY qualified and a published Cardiologist. .

By far the worst experience I had with a health care provider. No empathy towards a sick patient. I would not go to see her again and would not recommend her to my friends or family. Completely ignored my symptoms.
