I've been seeing Dr. Ott for almost twenty years. He's certainly a common sense doctor. I would strongly recommend him to anyone.

Great bedside manner. Spends time with the patient. Explains conditions and treatment very well.

After numerous doctors to understand my thyroid disorder, I found Dr. Ott via several nurses in the medical center. He's a Godsend. In fact, I have sent no less than 4 new patients his way. He's an amazing doctor who actually listens and takes your requests seriously. Imagine that...a Doctor that listens?!? LOVE Dr. Ott!

Dr. Ott was very nice and seemed to genuinely care about his patients. He didn't rush me and he was very thorough.

I was one of his first patients when he started seeing patients at Dairy Ashford. We liked him a lot. I had been to several doctors before him and didn't get the same attention and good diagnoses that me and my husband got from him. He listened well and took notes. Unfortunately, he stopped taking patients on Medicare. We still went to him as paying patients until he closed his practice and moved back to his original practice on Bellaire. Thank you doctor Ott. We miss you.

Awesome! He's the best! Helped me out quite a bit!

Dr. Ott is a very rare doctor in our modern fast pace society. Dr. Ott is a very well respected physician he took time to listen to his patients and do the right things to treat his patients. Obviously he is not in the medical field to make ton of money. He is in the medical field to care for his patients and we love Dr. Ott for what he does..

I love Dr Ott! He has been my internist for decades. He treats my sister, as well as several friends. He gives you his full attention, returns calls after hours & texts. Great staff. Free parking. There are too many positives to list here, but there's good reason why he was chosen for the cover of Inside Houston magazine, "TOP DOCS...Physicians Who May One Day Save Your Life." My sole suggestion is to schedule your appointment early mornings. (He probably knows who is writing this;-)

Extremely knowledgeable, freely shares as much knowledge as the patient wants to know. Understands obesity as an addiction to (carbs/sugar), the primary role of the limbic system (esp the hypothalamus) - AND how to help patients lose weight safely and not re-gain. Listens carefully, respects my knowledge and experience, and he is as KIND as his picture suggests he is. He is a marathoner and willing to help me with my desire to get back into running. I can tell he enjoys interacting w his pts

I have never had a doctor spend such focused time with me. He doesn't rush in and then rush out to maximize the number of patients he will see that day. And I realize that the insurance companies and managed care has created an environment where providers need to see more to make any money, but he takes the time to review your chart, ask you pertinent questions, and offer sound solutions. He asks "Is there anything else?" Rare to hear that these days. He actually handed out his cell phone #

Dr. Ott busts the myth of the 15-minute "wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am" office visit. I may have to wait awhile to see him, but see him I will, and not just for 15 minutes. If you are sad, he will listen, and if you are in pain, he will believe you.
in Houston, TX |
In an age where professionals in every industry are taught to make as much money for the company as possible, Dr. Ott is refreshingly old-school. He does things the right way, with the patient's well-being in mind, and I can tell that he cares more about fixing what is wrong with me than he cares about how much he can get paid. I would recommend Dr. Ott to anybody!
in Houston, TX |
Intelligent, kind MD with common sense. Very pleasant man with a dry sense of humor. I think he is able to see the big picture and not get lost in the details of a diagnostic workup & am always interested in listening to his line of reasoning as he gives me recommendations. I feel comfortable in his care.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Ott has been the most caring doctor I have ever had. I want to hug him every time I see him for helping me through unhealthy times in my life. I love his stories which help ease in and end the appts. I always leave feeling relieved and stress free.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Ott and the office staff are all excellent! Best Dr. experience I've had, office is clean and nice, staff polite and cheerful, Dr. Ott takes his time with you and is sharp. So glad I found Dr. Ott.
