Dr. Otto - Review by Jacqueline O | overlake ob/gyn

overlake ob/gyn


Dr. Otto 7/30/2007

I would like to ask somebody....anybody....why do the Ob/Gyns here in Seattle seem to be some of the worst Ob/Gyns I have ever seen? And I'm not the only one to believe this, I have had this conferred with Nurses, Dental Hygienists, Nursing Assistants etc. I went to see Dr. Otto to ask about my hormone levels. I was told by my previous Ob/Gyn in another state that I had funky FSH/LH levels etc. and I wanted to ask Dr. Otto about this and find out about my Husband and I's ability to potentially have children. I had my yearly exam with Dr. Otto and she seemed nice enough. She did not however do ANY sort of history and physical and I found that rather odd. But I let that go and figured I would see how she was when she called me about my blood results. Well I got my answer when she doesn't call me herself about my blood work but rather has her Nurse, Emily call me. Now I have to say Emily was just lovely. The nicest person and seemed somewhat knowledgeable BUT she was calling me to tell me I am infertile and have potential Premature Ovarian Failure! I mean.....should a Nurse be calling a patient with news like this?! As I was trying not to cry and see if I could be somewhat pulled together for the phone call, I asked Emily questions of course about POF and of course she didn't know the answers to my questions as these were questions that should be answered by a Physician. She was so kind on the phone and I want to make it clear that Emily was just so sweet and I could tell she felt awful telling me this news but at the same time the idea that Dr. Otto could not find 10 minutes of her time after charging me $400 for an office visit to tell me I cannot have children is just unfathomable to me. Emily gave me some numbers for infertility Physicians. And I appreciated that but again, it is fine to have her Nurse call me to tell me my pap smear is normal, to get a pharmacy number or to tell me I have high cholesterol BUT to have her Nurse call to tell me THIS? Dr. Otto can NOT be this busy to disregard the feelings of her patients and more seriously, disregard her moral duty as a Physician. more
