Smyrna, GA |
I have been going to this practice for over a year now and I really enjoy the professionalism of the employees and doctor. I am always informed of any outstanding debt whenever I visit. I have been made to wait for a bit on some occasions but one the one occasion when my daughter had excruciating abdominal pain, I was attended to immediately

My name is Niki E. Nightingale and I am honored to have a primary care physician like Dr. Alexander Osowa. At my age I taught it was impossible to meet a doctor like Dr. Osowa. Dr. Osowa is caring, professional, effective, efficient and he is committed to serving his community. I have realized that Dr. Osowa set himself aside from other doctors because he is committed to abide by the code of ethics that guide his profession at all times. Dr. Alexander Osowa continued success.

Do NOT go to this office!! You will be waiting for at lease an hour or 2 AFTER your appointment time!! Their staff are extremely rude and unprofessional! Their billing staff takes weeks to return your call and never picks up. When I finally got in touch with her, she was extremely rude and refused to rebill my claims , and when I asked her to call my insurance with the reference number I was given so they can tell her how to correctly bill it she said no because she doesn't have to... BEWARE

They show no loyalty to longtime patients.(10years) They have become very uppity and rude, since they moved into the building. The allow their receptionist to be rude to patients. They will tell you your appointment is a 9am and will not call you back until 11am than you will not leave until 12pm. They never give you enough perception refill for regular medicine, they make you come back every three month! I have found me a better doctors, that's not money hungry, greedy, and time consuming.

I took my daughter in for swimmers ear. They wanted to give her a hearing aid test on her sore ear. She get swimmers ear every year no matter what measure we take and I have never had a doctor they to perform a hearing test on her sore ear. She was 16 at the time- but what made me stop going was they did her blood work and we have her glucose levels watch and the results where high but no one called to give the results.

First let me say that Dr. Osowa is an excellent physician. He is attentive to his patients and I believe actually cares about his patients. The problem is the way his offices are run. He is the only doctor among 6 nurse practitioners in his Buford office and he is only in 3 days a week. He is the only doctor in Buford Family Practice. His wife is the person ruining the practice by trying to make it into a mega profitable practice while sacrificing patient care and consideration. Do not go.
in Lawrenceville, GA |
I would not recommend DR Osowa because he does not explaine test to you ,he just insist that you do things. If you dont ,he tells you not to come back to his office.
