Pediatric allergist practicing in Lakeville

Dr Nancy OttNancy Ott, MD, a pediatric allergist from Mayo Clinic, is now seeing patients at FamilyHealth Medical Clinic in Lakeville.

Dr. Ott practiced at Southdale Pediatrics for 22 years before moving to Mayo Clinic last year to add teaching and research to her practice. Her services are provided by Mayo Clinic Outreach.

Dr. Ott personal experience with childhood asthma has informed her work as a pediatric allergist.  At age 13, she spent nine months at National Jewish Hospital in Denver, Colorado, for asthma treatment.

A graduate of the University of Minnesota Medical School, she is board certified in Pediatrics and Allergy/Immunology. Her professional interests include food allergies, asthma, hives, anaphylaxis, mastocytosis and atopic dermatitis.

Kathleen Meier, Clinic Services Administrator at Northfield Hospital & Clinics, says Dr. Ott brings a valuable service to the FamilyHealth Medical Clinic.

“With her experience and background, Dr. Ott will be a great resource to our pediatric practice at FamilyHealth,” she said, “and it will be a benefit to families to have this specialty available locally.”

FamilyHealth Medical Clinic provides both primary and specialty healthcare through partnerships with a variety of premier providers. Specialties include pediatrics; orthopedics; OB/GYN; ear, nose and throat; audiology and general surgery. It also offers Urgent Care at its Lakeville clinic.
