"My recent experience with Dr Otero and the entire staff at his facility at 520 E. Euclid was excellent. I underwent both a colonscopy and endoscopy and was apprehensive about having them done at the same time. My worries were immediately diminished when I arrived for my procedures. Everyone I encountered from start to finish was kind, caring, and extremely efficient. I definitely recommend Dr. Otero and his staff to anyone who needs either of these procedures done."

"It’s been over ten years that I have not been able to swallow. Previous doctor diagnosed me for hiatal hernia. I had three consecutive procedures with this same doctor dilating my oesophagus over the years but I was frustrated with not being able to swallow and sometimes with deadly choking episodes. My current primary care physician recommended Dr Otero to me. Dr. Otero assured me that I should be able to swallow normally again after my procedure. He was so kind and I quite appreciate his encouraging words. I am swallowing again!. Thanks to Dr. Otero. I will recommend him to the world."

"He has been my Doctor for 11 years now and has always helped me out when I needed him. He has preformed at least 15 procedures on me, and both Dr. Otero and his Staff have always done a great job. I trust Dr. Otero so much, That I recommended him to my Mother; when she needed a gastroenterologist. She has been his patient for one year now. Dr. Otero really cares about his patients, as has always been caring when I needed to tell him about personal things. He always has a smile on his face and makes me feel at ease, whenever I see him before a procedure. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Otero and how I feel about him. He is the best there is."
