I have seen Dr. John P Ott for 30 years or so now. I absolutely LOVE him! He is very conservative in his approach - he does not go directly to prescribing medicine - which I applaud! I feel strongly that meds are good; but you always have the side effects to deal with, and I prefer natural healing as much as possible. Dr. Ott is not opposed to discussing supplements and vitamins to assist in your self-care. I recently lost employer insurance and had to go to a HMO BCBC plan in Texas. I absolutely lucked out that Dr. Ott was one of the preferred providers for this plan, and I am able to continue to be treated by the best!

I saw Dr Ott for ~5 years. He is bright - - continues to stay current in his field. He is an excellent listener and respected my input. He balanced a conservative approach with a ‘need to act’ position. Make the call! He helped save my life.

Dr Ott is the kindest, most caring doctor I’ve seen. I have been a patient of his for the better part of 25 years. In all of that time, he has never once let me down. He’s a keen listener and when I see him, I don’t feel rushed and I always feel that I have his full attention. His staff are always very friendly and professional.

Shannon in Richmond, TX – Feb 27, 2019
Dr. Ott didnt seem to care about my condition, barely laying a hand on me to examine me. Seemed more interested in referring me for expensive tests. I am disappointed in the quality of care (or lack thereof) I received.

I love Dr. Ott. I have been seeing him for about 20 years. He LISTENS! He thinks outside of the box and just doses not rubber stamp treatment. He works to find a solution for difficult problems. I trust him and love seeing him. I have gone to specialists who rushed me and acted like they could care less. Dr. Ott cares! He spends an appropriate amount of time. I am fortunate to have him as my primary doctor. Dr. Marilyn Reitz-Pustejovsky

Joe Pearson in Houston, TX – Sep 07, 2018
Dr Ott fit me in as a new patient on a Friday afternoon. His office was friendly and efficient. I was seen quickly once in the office. So many other offices didn't answer the phone, or left me on hold for a long time with many transfers and automated recordings. At the appointment he exhibited great diagnostic skills, took time to explain everything, and had a good sense of humor. I highly recommend him and his staff.

After 20 years of complex issues causing chronic fatigue, seeing Dr Ott has resulted in dramatic improvements which in turn resulted in improved general health. I only wish I had found him much earlier in life. He has been able to solve issues that I had had for 10 and 20 years. At this point, even if he moved 200 miles away, I'd still travel to see him.

After years of no one else being able to help me, Dr. Ott took only minutes to diagnose me. He is very kind and always takes time to listen to me. I don't know what I would do without him; I hope I never find out. I have never felt so cared for, it is clear he cares for his patients.
