Dr. Ott is the best. I had hip replacement surgery and because of my quick recovery under Dr. Ott and his caring staff, I have my life back. I can do things that I haven't been able to do in over a year. Thank you Dr. Ott.

After doing some research online, I decided to have my surgery in Phoenix. I wanted Dr. Ott as my surgeon, so I drove down from Las Vegas and I am very happy with the result. It's only 1 and a half weeks since my anterior approach hip replacement and I already feel better than before. In fact, I believe I felt less pain immediately after surgery than immediately before it. Of course, I was medicated while I was in the hospital, but I am only taking Aspirin and Aleve now and am amazed that I feel so little pain.

Dr. Ott, his PA Chris and his assistant Jessica were excellent. Both Jessica and Chris returned our phone calls within an hour....unheard of. Oasis Hospital was amazing, they really know what they are doing. Dr. Ott said my husband would be good as new within 6 weeks and sure enough he was walking with his new hip within hours of surgery, home the next day and back to walking 3 miles a day within 10 days, all without pain! Dr. Ott and his team exceeded all of our expectations. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back and would highly recommend them.

Dr. Ott has replaced both of my knees. There have been no complications and my recovery has been very smooth. I would recommend to anyone considering knee replacement to find a physical therapist to get some exercises before surgery. The stronger your leg is the easier your recovery will be. Dr. Ott did a great job and I'm looking forward to no longer having the knee problems and pain I had.

I had a Total Hip Replacement that gave me back my life. When I reached out, Dr Ott gave me trust and power to go through. Together with his team, they only "replaced" my hip, but that amazing work enabled me to do activities that I couldn't do for many years. Thank you!

This is the second knee I had replaced by Dr. Ott. The first one was three years ago and went very well. I was back playing golf within 35 days. Second one also went well. David and Chris were very helpful throughout the whole procedure. The hospital, Oasis, was very thorough and made the operation as easy as can be expected. I highly recommend this team.

I'm just 32 years old and needed hip replacement surgery. I wanted a good recovery and long lasting results. Dr. Ott was top of my list of surgeons, he uses the direct anterior approach, and just a week and a half after the surgery not only was I walking unassisted, I was walking with virtually no pain. Dr. Ott was awesome every step of the way. 2 weeks after surgery I have almost no restrictions and I'm back to doing the things I love. Your body might respond differently, and I'm young for hip replacement surgery, but my recovery has been incredible. Dr. Ott is the best.

Dr. Ott replaced my right hip 5 years ago, and I had a great experience with surgery/recovery. So, although I live 4 hours from Phoenix, I wanted Dr. Ott to replace my left hip. The entire experience (pre-op, surgery, recovery) was again OUTSTANDING! Dr Ott is an amazing surgeon, but he also has a calm demeanor and willingness to address any questions you have. Also, Dr. Ott's incisions are perfect. My incision from the right hip surgery of 5 years ago is hardly visible - you have to look very closely to even notice the incision. Bottom line - I rate Dr. Ott as a superior physician, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Exceptionally happy with Dr Ott and his team. My anterior hip replacement surgery and recovery have been just as described to me in our initial meeting. I knew what to expect and when I had questions always received prompt answers

Both my husband and I are patients. We found him after seeing others. Dr. Ott and his entire staff, truly respects patients. They honor appt. times, and Dr. Ott is concerned about you as a person, not just your body part. His listening skills are excellent, and his entire team of professionals make you feel gratitude they are there to help you. He is the epitome of what we all wish we had in our caregivers. For those with the highest standards, he is the doctor you have been looking for.

Doctor Ott performed a total knee replacement with his PA Chris Rubio on 2/12/2019 at Oasis Hospital, and I couldn't have imagined a better result. Physical Therapy went great and the healing was quick. I began playing Pickle Ball again after six weeks and feel terrific about the results.

Dr. Ott has been my doctor since 2012. During that time he has replaced both of my hips and one knee. He is amazingly skilled has has really good bedside manners. I have referred others to him who feel the same way I do. I feel lucky to have found him.

After putting off my second total knee replacement for 2 years, mostly because the first was such an ordeal. Dr. Ott was recommended to me. Best choice I could’ve made! I was100% confident in both Dr. Ott and his PA, (Chris) before I left my first visit to the office. Most importantly, surgery was scheduled in a timely manner, according to my needs, the entire process was fully explained and arranged by an excellent staff, the procedure, recovery, and care was exceptional, start to finish!

Dr. Ott is a great surgeon. He is pleasant with his patients and does an outstanding job. I had a Total Knee Replacement. I had hardly any pain when released from the hospital. Knee is doing great. I would highly recommend Dr. Ott for TKR.

Dr. Ott did my right knee replacement in 2010 and my left knee in 2017. I recommend him to EVERYONE who mentions trouble with their knees or that the plan to get knee replacement! Fantastic bedside manner - treats patient with respect and kindness, yet provides specific important information in detail.

I was out of rehab in 30 days. As a prior patient of knee replacement in DC five years prior there was no comparison in the level of care received by Dr Ott and his staff. It was worth the wait!

This is my third surgery preformed by Dr. David Ott, 2 hip replacements, and my most recent knee replacement. All my surgeries were preformed in the most updated techniques which resulted in a quick, relatively painless, recovery time. I fine Dr. Ott to be a expert in his field of orthopedic medicine, with a over achiever staff , whom highly respect his requirements.
