Dr. Ostad is both a physician and an artist. Today's visit was a simple check-up but in the recent past his work as a plastic surgeon for me, my daughter, and several friends could not have been better. Having lived in Southern California and exposed to more sun than was good for me, I am deeply grateful to have his skills whenever needed. I cannot recommend him more highly.

Nydia Leaf – Jun 15, 2021
Dr. Ostad is extremely knowledgable professional and compassionate. I went to Dr. Ostad with some cosmetic concerns and he took his time to explain different options that would work for me. I never felt pressured to go forward with more than I was comfortable with. I was looking for a professional that was honest had integrity and believed that less is more and Dr. Ostad provided all of the above. The staff from the front desk to the assistants were knowledgable and caring. I highly recommend Dr Ostad !
