Dr. Lewis A. Osofsky's Ratings
Dr. Osofsky saw our new born daughter 28 year ago then our 18 year old son. Dr. Osofsky is a very caring Human Being. Has a heart and treats his patients as his children. Many time he's been available after hours and over the weekends and gave good advise, what to expect and clear instructions. There's at least one woman in his front office that is very dry! No emotions and almost robotic. Although I believe she means well and just has a lot to do. I honestly believe that since Dr. O is so unusual, that's why this one person in his front office does not look as good. Anyone looking for a new children's doctor; search no more! your child will be in good hands and will be cared for my Dr. O. and Oh; as far as the front office lady who does the billing; I'm sure she's nice too!
Twenty years ago, when I was pregnant and working at Los Gatos Community Hospital, I polled the nurses and other docs to see who they would recommend--it was Osofsky hands down. As new parents, we were sometimes put off by the "offhand" way he treated us--as if our child were only one of hundreds and not the one in a million precious being he obviously was (ha!--new parents!) but the truth is he is one of the smartest and most intuitive physicians I've ever met--and now at nineteen, our son still goes in for periodic checkups when he is home from college. He is the best.
This doctor's receptionist is really unpleasant, unfriendly and unhelpful when you call. The doctor, however, is knowledgeable, caring and has great flexible office hours. He is definitely NOT out to be your best friend - his manner can sometimes be gruff and off-hand and I can see that especially to a small child, he could be intimidating (he's well over 6 ft.) On the plus side, his nurses do have great follow-through, he responds almost immediately to after-hours calls and I feel he is genuinely caring - which is why we have stuck with him for years.
Dr. O. is not out to be your best friend, but he is a great advocate for children. He is friendly, but not chummy. I find the appointments to be convenient and prompt. He recognized a really weird blood disorder in my newborn, and sent us up to Stanford with full instructions of how to navigate that system. (She's fine.) We've been seen on all days of the week, at all times of day. We've come in for ear infections, burns, bronchitis, pink eye, possible broken bones, preventative care, and more. (3 children) We've even called for advice while on vacation. The doctor is practical, reliable, and thorough.
He is a great doctor. I had to page him at 3 am and he called back in just few minutes and told us what to do. He has Saturday morning appointments and in emergency will open his office for you. His wife is the nurse there with over 16 years of experience and 4! kids of their own. She will answer any questions you might have.
