  4. Dr. Howard Osterman is knowledge, patient and has a good bedside manner. Both he and his x-ray technician were highly professional, and their approach inspired confidence in the suggested treatment approach. His office exceeded high expectations for me coming in as a new patient.

  16. Honestly, this was one of the best medical experiences I’ve ever had. The nurse, the receptionist were friendly and helpful. The doctor spent a lot of time listening to me, examining me, and then talking to me. I’ve had a lot of experiences with sports medicine doctors or orthopedic surgeons where they don’t listen to me or barely examine me, which is so frustrating. But this was the complete opposite. I’m so impressed.

  17. Dr Ahmad was excellent in terms of his knowledge and professionalism. He offered thorough explanations regarding treatment and options for addressing my problem. He treated the painful issue with gentleness and empathy. He was the best. I will definitely return. This is a wonderful practice in every aspect!

  19. I felt really at ease after the appointment. Dr. Tulpule was very straightforward and kind. She explained things well and told me options in a way that was very calming.

  20. Dr. Osterman was very thorough in reviewing the x-ray report on my foot.
