  1. I find this doctor very helpful and caring. I never feel embarrassed or foolish in questioning or requiring further explanations. Job well done!

  2. Great treatment and friendly. Very confident that my recovery will proceed well. Thanks so much!

  3. Dr. Osterman is so kind and patient and engaged. He explained my issues, asked how I was feeling from the last visit, and is working towards a complete fix. I'm just sad that I didn't come in when my feet first started to hurt instead of waiting four months. I've already recommended him to others.

  4. I was referred to F&A of Mid-Atlantic by my wife [...], who is a patient. The whole process,(and staff), from my phone call to make an appointment and the treatment of Dr. Ahmad, to finishing at the front desk was exceptional . Dr. Ahmad was very knowledgeable and diagnosed and treated my issue to great relief, and made me feel very comfortable.

  5. Many thanks to Dr. Osterman and his team for the high professionalism and the high quality of patient care they provide!

  17. 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.

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

  19. 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!
