Internal medicine specialist joins NMPG, Memorial team
This week you may have seen a new face wandering the halls at Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital. The new addition to our medical staff, Dr. James Otto, is board certified in internal medicine, with 27 years of experience. He joins us from his most recent post with Baylor, Scott and White Health system in Waco.
The newly arrived internist is intent on giving personalized healthcare to each of his patients. His particular interests are in weight management, cholesterol maintenance and diabetes intervention, and he is currently completing an obesity fellowship. As all internal medicine specialists, Dr. Otto is focused on identifying any possible future illnesses for his patients in the interest of prevention. He’s available to publicly speak about these and other internal medicine topics, so if your club or organization needs a speaker, feel free to reach out.
Dr. Otto attended the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and did his internship and residency at Baylor University Medical Center. His professional societies include Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, American College of Physicians, American College of Lifestyle Medicine and The Obesity Society.
Dr. Otto is excited to be an active member of his new community and has already signed up for the Leadership Nacogdoches class through the Chamber of Commerce. We’ve begun the process of getting ready to introduce him, starting with a photography session this week.
He’s eager to meet you, so book an appointment with him by calling 936-205-4357 or stop by the office at 1023 N Mound St., Suite H.
