I have been seeing Dr. Otto for 2 years and he is always pleasant, helpful and answers any questions I might have. He has me on target with my allergy plan and I'd recommend him to anyone considering an allergist in the Florence, Ky area.

On my first visit for my 2 year old to be tested for allergies I felt like I've been going there for years.. the staff were so welcoming. They really are a FAMILY-FRIENDLY practice.. Dr otto was very kind and took his time to explain everything and to answer any questions. I never felt rushed or pressured to hurry at all..

Our 2.5 year old was having skin issues so we visited Dr. Otto (another parent recommended him). We were very pleased by his knowledge, rapport with us as well as our daughter, and every appointment has been a pleasant experience. We highly recommend him.

Dr. Otto is very easy to talk to & is not afraid to do what ever it takes to provide patients with a higher quality of life. He has even answered questions after business hours for me. He researches new products & tries to explain them where I can understand. Excellent!

Dr Otto was compassionate and understanding! I was very ill and he gave me a lot of time at the visit. Never felt rushed!

Dr. Otto, is a friendly no nonsense man who answers your questions, tells you about your treatment, even if it's going to possibly be over treating, and give you the answer as to why, before you can ask. Treating allergies and breathing problem is more off an art than one might think, as we are all quite different. He and the staff are very responsive to your needs, even when you call.
