  10. Dr. Osterman values a patient's time as much as his own. An appointment time is honored. and the office staff will do their best to get you in early is scheduling allows some flexibility. His staff seem to schedule appointments to allow enough time for doctor patient interaction without feeling rushed. He is attentive and provides a medical explanation in a manner that is understandable. I would highly recommend Dr. Osterman to my friends and family.

  11. I have been a patient of Dr. Osterman's for over 20 years. I truly value his kind manner, medical expertise, thoroughness and his explanation of the diagnosis and treatment plan. He always tries for the simplest and least invasive treatment before going on to more complex care. He is a good listener and very open to questions My only regret is that wait time before getting an appointment with him is often two or three weeks. I see him in his Silver Spring office.

  12. After trying a number of podiatrists, I first saw Dr. Osterman about 10 years ago. He has always treated me with concern and professionalism but, more importantly, his diagnosis and treatment of several different problems have been accurate and effective. Two other family members have had similar positive experiences. Although I have moved from the Washington area, I make an appointment with Dr. Osterman when I visit the area.
