He monitored her frequently and she was completely healed in one month. To date, no other wounds have surfaced. Mom now sees him for regular foot care. Thank You Dr. Otiko!!  Respond

27/10/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Chris Otiko is awesome! Years ago I got a fungal infection on my big toe from a nail salon. I tried everything to get rig of it! I tried cream, drops, and bleach. I saw different podiatrists through my own medical insurance. I took Lamisil 3 times. Sometimes it would go away but it always came back. I saw Dr. Otiko's deal on Groupon and decided to take a risk. The fungus on my big toe was so bad at this point and it had begun to spread to three other toes. After the first treatment the 3 toes it spread to had grown out clear, and the majorly infected toe looked much better. I was originally told it may take 2-3 treatments on the one horrible toe. I completed my 2nd treatment on that toe and can already see it's growing in even more clear. Treating this embarrassing foot problem with Dr. Otiko already took care of the 3 toes and I'm confident it will make it go away on the big one for good too . He is so knowledgeable, can get rid of it, and knows how to prevent it from returning.  Respond

06/03/13 5 5 5 5 Wow!!! Doctors are considered the best salesman - suggesting things you don't need. But this guy was the very opposite. He was personable, warm, knowledgeable and most importantly, he listened. I explained a problem that I'd been having with my feet and he worked with me to understand my pain and found a solve that had me back on my feet in no time. If I could give him a 100 out of 5 I would. Amazing Dr. Otiko. Thank you!  Respond

23/02/13 5 5 5 5 I have suffered for over 18 years with a toenail fungus problem on my big toe. As a female, this has always been a major hassle for me because I would never dare step foot out of the house without an acrylic to cover my embarrassing toe. Over the years I have been to many podiatrists and tried endless creams, medications etc all with no success in curing this problem. However, Dr. Otiko cured my toe nail fungus after two treatments of laser therapy. I am AMAZED and can not express what a relief it is to not have to deal with this embarrassing problem. The treatment was pain free, reasonably priced and fast. Dr. Otiko was extremely thorough in explaining the entire process and how to properly care for my toe at home to prevent any future return of the fungus. I highly recommend this treatment and Dr. Otiko. Thank you Dr. Otiko!!  Respond

29/01/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Otiko has been treating my fungal toenails for nearly 9 months. I am a dancer who's spent many years stuffing my feet into tight shoes and then pounding on them, all of which hasn't helped my current situation. In these 9 months I've had two foot surgeries (through another surgeon and completely unrelated to fungus but rather to old dance injuries) and Dr. Otiko has been wonderfully kind and patient, inquiring about the procedures and my subsequent healing. Meanwhile, my nails are very slowly showing signs of clearing. Dr. Otiko is not rushing to charge me more to do another laser treatment, but rather continuing to follow-up with me and monitoring my nails' progress. He is incredibly generous with him office time, as well, making me (and I'm sure everyone he meets) feel like there's nowhere else he'd like to be.  Respond

24/01/13 5 5 5 5 I had a toenail fungus problem, and Dr. Otiko used laser treatment to get rid of it. He did an extremely thorough job, and he was very helpful in explaining how to take care of my feet to avoid reinfection. The price for the treatment was extremely reasonable, and I'm very happy about the whole process.  Respond

21/01/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Otiko is one of the finest, most knowledgable doctors I have had the pleasure of working with. Because I have homes in 2 states (UT (resident) and CA (non-resident)) I have to have doctors in both states. I have some of the finest physicians on this planet. Chris definitely ranks right up there. His "bedside matter" is one of the best also. He takes time to explain issues to his patients. I have an insurance background (former senior executive officer for 2 Fortune 200 Insurance Hilding Companies) and Chris is honorable too. Plus his treatments were adn are successful for me. I strongly recommend him to anyone who needs his services.

21/01/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Chris was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. I found him trough a Groupon deal and he cleared up a toe problem I've had for years with a minimum of discomfort and cost. He upheld the Groupon deal even after I had used it, and gave precise and well-explained information about the condition and what I had to do to prevent it returning.  Respond

18/08/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Otiko was extremely professional and very detailed on how to care for my foot after I left the clinic. On 2 different occasions I have even prescribed Lamisil which can damage liver and never was able to cure my toe fungus. I went abroad and tried 3 different treatments and all failed. With one laser treatment at Dr. otikos office, fungus is gone. Highly recommend his office in El Segundo.

02/08/12 5 5 5 5 About a year ago I noticed that something was going on with one of my toenails. I went to my regular family doctor and he told me it was a nail fungus and that he could prescribe me medication that only had a 20% chance of working. Needless to say, the meds didn't work so when I saw a groupon for laser nail fungus removal, I bought it right away. My visit was so easy and basically painless. Dr. Otiko explained the procedure and answered all of my questions. 30 minutes later, I was done and had a check up appointment in a few months. I went in today for my check up and I couldn't be happier. The funus is totally gone and my nail is basically back to normal. I'm 100% satisfied and I'd recommend this treatment to anyone.  Respond

24/05/11 5 5 5 5 I went to to Dr.Otiko for the Laser Procedure for my fungal toenails. He explained the procedure in detail and gave me a lot of options. He also gave me a discount becuase my case was so severe. He is extremely knowlegable,very friendly and takes the time to listen. Finally he actually came in on his day off to see me and gave me his cell phone number in case I had any problems and wanted to contact him immediately. I highly recommend Dr. Otiko
