    Good visit

    Experienced on Feb 22, 2019

    Great service and people. I am, however, not liking the new office building located in the new hospital. Not a warm, inviting space for both the waiting area nor the patient rooms.

    Dr Ott is the best doctor ever! treated me very well. He has a great bedside manner, he listens and explains things so well. He is a very intelligent man with a lot to give.

    He didn't seem to want to get to the core of the problem [...]. He was not familiar with my medical history though it was available for his access. I was asked about current medications by the medical assistant, but the chart was not updated in his clinical note.

    Meeting Dr Ott and discussing my concern was so reassuring that we could monitor for now and not rush into more invasive tests and procedures.

    i appreciated the care given. [...]

    My only complaint is I felt the visit with the doctor for my annual checkup was too rushed especially after having had a hysterectomy last year. I would have liked more of a sit down chat type session like I used to have with him when he was in his previous building. It seems that he is a bit more impersonal now that he's located in the new hospital. Other than that, he is a very caring and competent physician and I have no desire to change to another doctor.

    I was so grateful for Dr. Ott and his nurse, [...]! They were so kind and helpful. I left feeling like I was going to get help with my medical needs promptly!

    Experienced on Jan 28, 2019

    I would have liked Dr. Ott to spend a few more minutes with me. I had another question, but forgot about it until I left, but I had mentioned it to his nurse/assistant and I think she made a note of it so if he had looked at the notes and taken a little more time, he would have addressed it.

    Dr. Ott took about 20 mins. with me to thoroughly explain with pictures how PCOS works and why I was having the problems I had. I appreciate that he prescribed a diet change instead of meds.

    Experienced on Jan 10, 2019

    They all heard my concerns and offered blood work and an ultrasound to rule other problems out.

    I had a very pleasant visit. The receptionist was helpful, the MA was very kind, sympathetic & knowledgeable. Dr. Ott is awesome & very thorough in describing things.

    Dr. Ott is truly one of the best. He is caring, compassionate and proactive. I only feel bad he doesn't continue work in OB.

    Dr. Ott is very kind. He is also very professional.
