We would recommend Dr. Postma to anyone. The office is warm and friendly. All of the staff are wonderful. The doctor actually takes the time to talk to you and he listens. His PA is wonderful and caring. The surgery at a small hospital was lovely. We've been to others and we would highly recommend this doctor to you. We've also had other friends with the same results.

I would highly recommend Dr. Jeffrey Postma. He was very caring and he actually listened to you what you had to say to him. A few times he kept asking me anything else I needed to ask him. I had to have Carpel Tunnel surgery a few weeks ago and I am healing nicely his staff said.

The most caring professional I have dealt with in years. My mother had a fall requiring emergency surgery. He was very compassionate and explained everything to the family. He never seemed in a hurry and always had my mother's interest at heart.

Dr. Postma was amazing. He was pleasant, professional and caring. He performed surgery on my hand with excellent results. He took plenty of time to explain everything to me and answered all my questions.
in Benton Harbor, MI |
Dr. Postma met me prior to, and after the surgery, explained every step, and took the time to put me at ease. His PA was a reassuring presence as well. We are truly blessed to have a physician of such skill as well as approachability. Every detail was attended to and explained in a way that minimized any anxiety. We truly have an exceptional surgical team at Lakeland Hospital Watervliet. With my left shoulder surgical procedure, I had minimal discomfort and minimal swelling.
