I was nervous about taking my grandpa to Dr. Ott because of certain reviews, but I was proven wrong. He is an exceptional and competent neurosurgeon. He had a confident answer for every question and communicated the best path for my grandpa to take. Dr. Ott has a direct, no nonsense approach and isn't that what you want in a doctor? Even though other reviews said he was uptight, I think I saw him smirk once or twice. I absolutely adore Dr. Ott.
