Patient Comments (4)
Lake Elsinore, CA |
My 11 year old saw Dr. Ostrow June 2017 regarding amblyopia. Dr. Ostrow was enthusiastic and encouraging. We patched all day for a month. When we returned Dr. Ostrow was a different person and told my son not to bother patching anymore. His technician, Lauren, an incompetent, cold fish in tight skirt and heels not only didn't introduce herself, but measured his eyesight incorrectly. When we filled the prescription, my son couldn't see. He was examined by another ophthalmologist lenses reordered

He has been great with all of my children. Extremely knowledable in all eye conditions. We will be every year.

Dr Greg is good in what he does.but he is not patient friendly..his nature feels intimidating.we had appointments with Dr Greg for my daughter..we thought to get second opinion as well and the other doctor provided lower #s than what he prescribed..when we had revisited Dr Greg after few months, he was pretty furious about it and he did not check my daughter well enough.we had follow up appointment with Dr Greg after 3 months for which no reminders were sent, so we missed.he put red flag on us

Dr. Ostrow is extremely competent. He diagnosed a problem with my daughter's vision early, which led to 100% correction. He monitored the progress beautifully and effectively. He has a great kid-friendly personality.
