  7. I was very satisfied with my experience. I was put at ease regarding my specific problem, as well as received a good understanding of the issue.

  8. I had an excellent experience at Foot & Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic yesterday. The care from all the staff was thoughtful and thorough. I came in with significant foot pain. Doctor Ahmad listened to my concerns and also my unique needs for work and lifestyle. After taking the time to explain the various treatment options, he prescribed a change to my orthotics. By the end of the day, I was no longer limping and I experienced a significant decrease in pain. I would definitely recommend this practice, and Dr. Ahmad in particular. Knowledgeable doctors who take the time to care and listen are not easy to find.

  9. This was excellent visit. The doctor provided some tools for home usage.

  10. Dr. Osterman and his staff were wonderful. I had never been to a podiatrist before so was uncertain what to expect. Since my visit, I haven't had any pain and am going back in a couple weeks to see how things look. I wish I had made an appointment sooner!

  11. Dr. Osterman took time to listen to my concerns and answer all of my questions. Furthermore, his bedside manner was excellent - he calmed down my fears and treated my medical issue without causing any pain. Lastly, he conducted the procedure in a way that speeds up the healing process and enables me to return to normal activity (e.g. running) within a very short period of time.

  12. Though no one necessarily enjoys needing to go to the doc, it’s always nice to be treated kindly and thoughtfully. Dr. Osterman and his staff are always wonderful.

  13. Great doctor.

  14. Everyone was very attentive and I liked that we went through the x-rays together and the doctor explained the different parts of my foot and where this pain was originating. It was really nice to finally know what is wrong instead of guessing and treating it based on those guesses (or not).

  15. I appreciate the fact that Dr. Osterman wants to hear what I have to say about my treatment plan. I feel like we are working together to help me.

  16. Dr. Osterman solved my problem in a matter of minutes - that had been going on for months. Even though he was very busy, he took the time to listen to me about what I thought and took that into consideration when making the treatment plan.

  17. I've been coming to see Dr. Osterman for years and he is a great doctor. His professionalism and manners are exceptional.
