What a wonderful doctor. I was so scared when I found out I had a brain tumor. He made me feel comfortable, explained what would happen next, and did a great job with the surgery. I'm back at work and feel like I did before my symptoms started. Thank you!

I was having trouble getting pregnant, and my doctor found out I had a pituitary tumor. She referred me to Dr. Otten, and he was wonderful. I had surgery, and went home 2 days later. My hormone levels are normal, and my husband and I just had our first child over the winter.
