What Our Patients Are Saying

Barbara Mischuk

Dr. Otterburn offered me the best experience in treating my breast reconstruction. He is very thorough in discussing all options, listens and answered all my questions. He and his Terrific Team were extremely caring before, during and after my surgery. It was a joy to meet a number of times for my follow-up as I am still on a healing journey to receive an implant. He is well respected and admired by all his colleagues with a great professional personality! I always left our visits feeling great.
