Ratings for Dr. Alan S. Oster
I have struggled with problems with my elbow for years. My prior doctor was quick to do surgery, however the surgery did not work and my problems became worse. Dr. Oster was not quick to operate just to make money and through cortesone shots and other treatment my elbow has greatly improved. I don't understand all of the other comments about a long wait time. I have been to his office multiple times and never had to wait as long as compared to other doctor's offices. In my opinion, Dr. Oster is the best doctor in town!
Have seen Dr. Oster several times for a broken ankle/surgery/post-op care, and I haven't found the wait time to be worse than any other busy practice. He did a great job with my ankle, and no, I don't spend a ton of time with him, but I do feel that he listens to me. I saw him out with his family one night as well, and he knew me and asked how my ankle was doing, which was nice. Honestly, just take a book with you to the office and be patient--he is good enough for the wait!
DON"T GO HERE. Ok you have been warned. Had an accident and was given this doctor. He rushes around like a chicken with his head cut off. There is no follow up and his staff is like dealing with a mafia enforcment team. You wait and wait and come out with a feeling of why did I bother. If you can drag you but away before this doctor gets you please do it, you will be glad in the end.
Dr. Oster does well in surgery with hard cases but thats where I would leave it. They continue to always be beind and have to reschedule appointments due to him being out of the office. The office staff is rude and have messed up several different times regarding different issues. The follow care does not happen. Even in post op after waiting to see him he rushes in and out of room. Does not listen to the patients concerns. Like I said this has happened on several times due to being under his post op care after surgery. Office staff does not give him messages or return calls.
