Dr Ostad dismissed a growth on my face TWICE. My new dermatologist looked at it once and knew it was basal cell. Unfortunately the mohs surgery I underwent to remove it was much more extensive as it had grown so much in the year.

Dr. Ostad is the most expert, caring and professional doctor. I have been his patient for over 30 years. He has done several MOHS surgeries for me with outstanding results. His office is inviting, his staff lovely and competent and he keeps appointments on time - I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes to see him. He takes his time and listens to any issues I might have. His office contacts me with reminders for 6 months body scan check-ups. His competence and reassuring manner quell any fears I might have about any dermatological issues. You will be in excellent hands if you make an appointment to see Dr. Ostad.
