Dr. Otto performed a thyroidectomy on me. She answered my questions prior to surgery and post surgery in a timely manner. My surgical scar is barely noticeable after only 3 weeks. Thank you Dr. Otto!

Dr Otto recently performed thyroid surgery on my husband. She and her staff where professional and knowledgeable from our first visit, presurgical appointment and testing through the surgery and post op. Would not think twice about driving the 2 hours one way to her office.

Very clueless doctor! Didn't know who her patient was! If you're not having a surgical procedure she wants nothing to do with you. I would not recommend her to anyone!
