Patient Comments (1)
in Mechanicsburg, PA |
After being "lead up the garden path" by other pulmonologists. We were referred to Doctor Henry Ostman by a dear friend. Talking to him was like night and day. He actually LISTENED to what Keith (patient) had to say. A rarity these days . Also, he had done his homework before we met. I was amazed with what he knew about Keith's' past experiences with other doctors. To put it in a nutshell. If you want a doctor who will do his very best to cure you, look no further.

Dr. Ostman says...

I perform advanced diagnostic procedures for lung cancer, lung nodules, sarcoid, and lymph node enlargements.  These minimally invasive bronchoscopic procedures have the advantage of being same day with fewer complications and blood loss than traditional surgery and external biopsies with a very high diagnostic yield.  I was the one of the first doctors in Harrisburg to perform Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) and the first to perform Bronchial Thermoplasty (BT) for the treatment of asthma.
