I am saddened to hear reviews that do not reflect who Dr. OTTERBECK is. You can't duplicate this very special man, who looks at your face when he speaks with you, takes the time to steer me through some rough waters recently. He cares. Maybe too much, and that is why he is so darn good. His staff is all business and this sometimes can appear to be rude. I get the other reviewers thoughts about the people behind the scenes. My biggest gripe is actually speaking with the ladies at their desks.

Dr. Otterbeck and his Team are excellent in regards to my care in diabetes type 2 for the last 5 years. Totally recommend him and his Team for diabetes care.

Dr. Otterbeck is a good doctor however, he surrounds himself with incompetent staff that either cant or forget to mail blood scripts, doesnt follow up with patients if they need referrals(one call and thats it and not even a actual person), some of the staff are just plain rude to patients which doesnt make me want to even see him anymore and deal with the headache. -2 stars for staff and overall patient service, if this was just rating the doctor and not the practice he would get 5 stars but im rating overall experience.

I have been a patient of Dr. Otterbeck since he took over Dr. Eng's practice. I was not too sure but found him to be competent, caring with a wonderful bedside manner. However, since January there have been some serious discrepancies and/or changes. I understand he has been promoted at RUMC as Medical Director. Apparently, this is affecting his private practice. I don't know what the deal is but in January I was told he would no longer see patients at Ralph Place, only Victory Boulevard. Today I received a message that they were cancelling my appointment on Tuesday and I had to call and reschedule for September. Really. I had a sonogram in January with a 6 month follow-up. Something is definitely wrong with this picture. I guess if I develop cancer and can't get adequate treatment it will be because I couldn't get a timely follow-up appointment. Maryann Lutz

I really like Dr. Otterbeck. He is very nice and caring. However, I has mentioned to him I was concerned about hair thinning and he seemed to dismiss it. In the past he always seemed more attentive but I felt like each time I saw him as time went on, he was not paying attention to my concerns. He spoke to his assistant most of the time as she entered information into the computer.I ended up going to a dermatologist who sent me for lab work and turned out I should have been concerned. Another point is the staff use to be very good and then it changed. It is almost impossible to reach anyone there. Just completely turned off. Now seeing another endocrinologist.
