I was referred for surgery, the experience was horrible. He had very poor bedside manors. I've never been seriously ill and it was unnerving to be treated badly throughout. I thought it wouldn't matter if we liked each other he just had to be an experienced surgeon. This was NOT the case, I should have found someone else that genuinely cared for my well being. After, I had Post-Op complications which delayed recovery by weeks. Maybe consider retirement if you've lost your patience for patients.

I have been going to Dr Ostrum for 30 some years. I do have to say if he retires I don't know who I would go to.. He is an excellent Dr in every area.. I cannot give any more stars or I would. He is a top notch Dr. He is A top Notch Dr. I wish someone could give him a raise .
