I met Dr Otazo by chance after I couldn't get an appointment with my long time PCP. This was a blessing in disguise for me. She impressed me enough to switch to her and I have not regretted my decision for a second in over two years. I have worked in health care for 40 years and am not easily impressed. She is special and her patients are lucky to have her.
