Dr. Osterman is terrific.
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.
