SHC Patient, Jan 2016

I would highly recommend Dr. Ottestad. I have seen many pain management doctors and was very surprised that he took the time to review my records before seeing me, he actually did a thorough exam as opposed to just pushing meds and he actually showed genuine concern and readiness to help me. Not common practice today.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

He was in a hurry. He didn't explain the kind of meds he was giving me. He was condescending & flippant.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Very nice provider.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

He listened carefully about my concerns regarding an MRI result. Admitted he had never seen the report and my concerns were valid and significant to my care.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Ottestad is wonderful.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

Excellent, from start to D/C.
