She made me feel like she was concerned about me as a person, took the time to find out from me what was going on with me. Everything she did, she gave an explanation and made sure I understood. She also assured me that if I had any problems or questions I could call her. One of the best doctors that have treated me.

I have been a patient of this clinic for over 20 years and the staff is amazing BUT this doctor was insulting of my previous doctor who retired, was degrading of my ability to access my current disease condition which I have had for 29 years, tried to change the treatment plan in place by my specialist who I've had for 20 years. I don't appreciate the GOD complex she has especially since she is a inexperienced doctor with a 2 year work history. I informed the front desk I REFUSE to have her as my primary care doctor!!!

Dr. Otazo is always very efficient, yet I never feel rushed. She truly listens to me and we discuss treatment methods, as opposed to Dr. that just assign the treatment they choose, to you. I'm still getting used to a Dr. that a listens and does her job, I've never had a primary that did. I always skip these surveys, she's just worth the time it take to fill it out.

I've only seen this provider a couple of times, since my longtime PCP retired, so we are still "getting used to " each other. She seems knowledgeable & shows concern for my well-being, displaying a pleasant manner. She was quite thorough & very patient while listening to my concerns. So far, so good.
