On Nov 8, 2016 Dr. Ott along with his associate from Baylor College provided my second bypass. I am glad to report that my recent eco shows excellent heart function & with an EF of 60 to 65%. My post surgery was not all roses. I spent 11 days at St. Luke’s, normal 3 to 4 days. I was referred to Dr. Ott because of his success with risky cases. I was warned he is not a “Chatty Cathy “. I went to him for his skill in the OR ! Thank you Dr. Ott for providing me with the blood supply my heart was requiring.

I had a consultation with this Doctor. He was angry because he felt my problem didn't require surgery. He was insulting, demeaning, arrogant and rude. This jerk has his clinic staff scared to death of him. He is such a bad example of a caring physician that it is certainly possible that this hospitals low ratings may all rest on his arrogant shoulders.

Dr. Ott was very rude, inconsiderate and made it clear he had no intention of listening to anything we had to ask or say, like we were wasting his time. He walked out while I was speaking to him! What a waste of our valuable time and money to come from out of town to be treated with this kind of disrespect.. Find another doctor, he’s not the only one.

Dr. Ott replaced a heart valve for me last year, but it was defective. I had to have it replaced again this year. Plus I got endocarditis following surgery and had no risk factors or evidence of endocarditis prior to my surgery. Comparing the scar from this year's surgery to the surgery by Dr. Ott is no comparison - Dr. Ott's was must larger and inferior. He also left the pericardium open after surgery; in my latest surgery it was closed. Do yourself a favor and find another surgeon

Great, first meeting talk was enlightening. Surgery by Dr. Ott, the best. Follow up at bedside with his staff members often but understandably fast, he's a busy man. Total overall experience with Dr. Ott and his staff, couldn't ask for better.
