Patient Comments (2)
Dr. Otter is a bully and unempathetic. It appears as if he enjoys making his patients feel ignorant. He will not accept a patient's perception of their own pain level. He is not helpful. Find another surgeon.

A true man's man. He operated on both my wife and I. He is a wonderful surgeon as well as a wonderful person. I highly recommend DR. Otter. Carl & Linda Skrezec
