I drove 1 hour each way to see him and he did not even look in my ear my nose or my throat. As I was standing at the checkout I wanted to go back over and say are you not even going to look in my throat. I decided at that point it was not worth it. A waste of my time. I will not recommend for sure

We saw Dr. Osterhus with my toddler. He was very rude and disrespectful. I thought maybe I got him on a bad day but another patient with my pediatrician's office had the same experience a few days later. I would not recommend him for any care and will not be allowing him to offer any care to my children.

He is rude and will not take the time to listen to you. He has no bed-side manners and no tolerance for a child who struggled with a swabbing. Our son had already been tested 3 times and it was neg. all 3 times. We tried to tell him but he didn't listen. When our son struggled and gagged on the swab he told his nurse "just put him on antibiotics." More antibiotics, really. No wonder we have resistant strains of strep. We will never go back to this guy again!

I had severe adhesions and nose bleeds from trauma to my nose. Dr. Osterhus did an excellent job repairing and basically reconstructed the inside of my nose. He improved my life so much and am forever grateful and highly recommend him.

Dr. Osterhus is a wonderful, extremely knowledgeable physician. He removed a cyst that took up half of my thyroid. Since we lived in Knoxville he was very understanding, working with us, letting us get my lab work locally and having the results sent to his office so we didnt have to drive 2 hours just for blood work. After looking at all of the tests, he had surgery scheduled within the month. He did a great job, made sure the cyst was benign and followed up with us after. Highly recommend him.
