What People Say About Dr. Russell Otto, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

One of the best doctors I have ever been to. He actually LISTENS when I talk to him about what issues I am having and responds accordingly. I was having a horrible prolonged period of congestion and cough that I had been to my general practitioner about 5 times in less than two months. I went to Dr. Otto and he listened to everything I was dealing with and what I had tried. Then he used a camera to check my throat and was very thorough in his explanation of what he believed what happening and how to go about resolving the issue. After that I decided to get my deviated septum surgically corrected by him and both the surgery and recovery went perfectly. He is great at giving detailed explanations for everything and my favorite thing is I feel heard as a patient. He always listens and takes when I have to say I to consideration. I cannot day enough positive things about being one of his patients. I highly recommend this practice. The staff are also friendly and extremely helpful!

Took the time to ensure my needs were well taken care of. Not a rush out the door doctor. If you want quick, go to a Doc N The Box. If you want results, come here. Highly recommended.

Good Doctor and friendly staff. My 2 appointments with the Dr thus far have resulted in wait times of 1 hour for first appt and 35 minutes past schedule for second appt. There seems to be little concern for keeping appointments on, or even close to, schedule. Otherwise, patient care has been good. His EMT support for weekly allergy shots is excellent.

Good luck with trying to get an appointment. Office staff is rude and would not accept my referral from the insurance. Wow the worst experience I have ever had, too bad for Dr. Otto I will not recommend.

i've been a patient of dr. otto since 2009 for an auditory issue, i now see him for allergy treatments and am always impressed with the quality of care and staff attention that i get while i'm there. i won't go to another ent or allergy specialist as long as i'm in this area. dr. otto believes in the "whole picture" approach when it comes to a patient's health care. i recommend him to my friends whenever they need an ent/allergy specialist.

Dr. Otto was very professional and helpful in discovering and diagnosing my allergy problems. I have frequented many different doctors for my issues, so, I am very thankful that Dr. Otto was finally able to figure out what has been ailing me for years.
