About Me

I practice in otolaryngology, which focuses on ear, nose and throat health. I specialize in rhinology, an area of medicine emphasizing the nose and sinus conditions. My specialties include sinus surgery and endoscopic skull base surgery.

My goal is to deliver therapy that is tailored to each individual patient. I believe in engaging each patient to achieve this goal. I seek to first identify an accurate diagnosis and then recommend the best form of therapy for that patient.

I enjoy the people I work with at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I appreciate the positive atmosphere and dedication to excellent patient care. These are qualities that are exhibited at all times at Ohio State.

When I'm not on the job I take time to relax with my family, attend Ohio State football games and enjoy the outdoors. I also really enjoy playing the guitar.

    Dr Otto is awesome! He is knowledgeable but doesn't explain things in complicated medical terms that the average person can't follow. He is thorough, listens to concerns, answers questions, never makes you feel rushed and overall leaves you feeling like you're in the best hands possible.

    The provider did not listen to me first but took my story and info from the intern before he came in. When the Dr arrived he was dismissive of my questions and was unable to explain terms or his opinion on my care in a way I could easily understand. I left with many more questions than answers and was told repeatedly to "check MyChart" for conditions and medication he was talking about instead of explaining it. I was extremely disappointed, especially after waiting for 6 weeks for an appointment for a condition I'd been dealing with for 3.5 months. He was unsympathetic and dismissive.
