DR. Otto performed a hip revision on my right hip three years ago. I was exceptionally pleased with Dr. Otto and his staff. The surgery and recovery were flawless. I intend to ask Dr. Otto replace my left knee when the time comes. I highly recommend him.
in Ballwin, MO |
Excellent overall experience. Office staff prompt and efficient. Dr. Otto was extremely knowledgeable and expert. Anticipated questions and patiently answered everything. Examination and treatment performed extremely well. He is an inspiring teacher. I recommend enthusiastically.
in Shrewsbury, MO |
Dr. Otto is an amazing, no nonsense doctor who takes time with his patients instead of shuffling them off to his staff. He personally addresses all concerns you may have with preventative treatments, pre-op & post-op planning & recovery. Even though I had significant concerns with having RTKR at my younger age of 48, he expressed my options in realistic terms I could understand. This included a plan for my impending LTKR when WE thought I would be ready. I would recommend Dr. Otto 100%!
