He was very good about thinking outside of the box for treatments and listening to my questions and ideas.

One of the most caring and knowledgeable specialists I have taken my daughter to. After years of problems and PCP visits, he was able to pinpoint her asthma and get her allergies under control. Thank you Dr. Otto!! Now she can participate in sports activities without the fear of not breathing.

Dr. Otto is a very intuitive doctor. He took time to explain in detail what I needed to know about my visit. He answered any questions I had and was very thorough. I would recommended him to anyone. He is worth the phone call.

Never got to meet the doctor but he should know what goes on at his office. We waited for an appointment for my mother for over a week and had given insurance info on the phone when the appointment was made.They called today( to say the office manager is CHOOSING not to take her kind of united healthcare medicare. I am trying to get hearing aids for my mother and this is the care we get. It would be nice if someone cared.
We rec'd a referral from your mother's PCP on 5/17/16 and left a msg for her that day. You called and scheduled her appt for 5/24/16. We were told that she had UnitedHealthcare's Medicare plan, for which we were accepting new patients. When we checked her benefits on Friday 5/20/16, we found that she had a UHC Care Improvement Plus plan, which we did not know existed. We withdrew from the independant Care Improvement Plus network several years ago and have not accepted those patients since then.
