I have been a patient of Dr. Posada's for nearly 14 years. He is not only a highly renowned and distinguished physician but also a true gentleman and family man with excellent people skills.

Raymond John Kayal, Sr. Jul 19 2024

Review for Dr. Posada

Dr Osman is a fine doctor, but Broward health System under which he works is not to be accepted as an institution which cares about the health and overall wellness of its patients. Dr. Osman needs to leave the Broward Health System and he will have significantly greater results and reviews
