I was referred to see Dr. Ott for multiple neurological issues. He was distinctly unprofessional. His review of patient's history was sketchy at best, his physical examination consisted of 38 seconds of checking if the patient was able to feel a cold object placed on different areas of the body...Read More

Dr. Ott performed a Bi-Lateral Laminectomy on me. Doctor didn't like patient asking questions, didn't get me physical therapy and nicked my C-4 which has severely made my life difficult. Dr. cut me lose at 5 weeks and cared less about ever seeing me or what his rgical expertise did to me.
