I have to say that Dr. Otite has been an absolute life saver not only for my daughter, but for our entire family. My daughter was misdiagnosed by a previous doctor. The medications he prescribed her was just putting a band aide on some of the symptoms. Dr. Otite properly diagnosed her and after 3 months of seeing her, my daughter has improved so much. The only negative is the front desk staff at Bay Pointe is not very nice, they make you feel stupid the majority of the time. Have patience! :)

She tries to find the best course of treatment that is tailored to the individual and doesn't rush thru her appointments. She continues to offer support and guidance to help our son and we value every piece of help she offers.

Dr Otite has helped our daughter immensely. I appreciate her approach of avoiding over medicating and her genuine care for her patients. It is so challenging to find a quality child psychiatrist that is willing to take on young patients like our daughter and I believe her intervention is saving our daughter from tumultuous teenage years that could set her adult life up negatively. We are very thankful for Dr Otite's treatment.

Dr. Otite, really takes the time to listen to your concerns and never rushes you out the door. You can tell that she cares about her patients and their parents. She coaches her parents on the expectations of behaviors, and strategies for positive and progressive improvement. Her approach is inclusive of behaviors from all aspects of her patient's life: school, after school activities, day care, therapy, etc.
