This man is the worst dr on earth. He is rude, condescending and has the worst bedside manner. I became sick in 2010. I was diagnosed with pots at the Cleveland clinic in 2011. I had vertigo and was advised to see a vestibular dr. Oas talked to me for a few minutes and laughing, told me I was dying and I needed hospice. He mocked me for crying. I left and never returned. The idiot sent to my Drs I was bipolar III and had a personality disorder. None were true. OSU made him remove it and apologiz

I will never return to this doctor! No one should leave a doctor in tears and I did. He treated me like I was a complete idiot I used the word badly and he told me that word was for children. I got so frustrated because I didn't know how to answer anything because everything I said was apparently wrong. And he would constantly interrupt me he acted aggravated because to him he had to dumb things down. I wasn't going to sit there and be belittled and treated like I'm stupid and an idiot

Was referred to Dr. Oas by my family doc for positional vertigo. He performed a comprehensive exam and evaluation and diagnosed the issue. After serveral treatments, the vertigo was eliminated for the first time in years. He had provided his personal cellphone number for me to call if there was any change in condition. He is very bright and unconventional and I enjoy this aspect of his personality.

I had a very negative experience with this doctor. He refused to listen to any qualitative information about my s/s. He told me my reactions to meds were psychological; even the time that a particular med dropped my BP. He had the audacity to say I could've created this reaction! His examination of my neck/shoulders was terribly rough for me. I had to tell him to stop 3 times during one part of the exam due to pain that brought tears. He has done nothing but exacerbate my s/s.

I will never return to this man as he was rude, short, wouldn't let you ask a question or try to explain without cutting you off. I felt like a drill sergeant was seeing me or I was being cross examined by a ruthless attorney. He doesn't explain what he's doing or what he wants you to do but when you try to ask he gets short with you. I've seen a lot of doctors over the past few years trying to determine cause of my symptoms but have never been treated as poorly as this doctor treated me.

Finally, a doctor who understands my motion sickness/vertigo. He spent over an hour questioning me about symptoms and did a thorough neurologic exam. First doctor in 50+ years who gave me some hope that I can get some relief from this problem that has plagued me all of my life.

In 2013, I was given a neurology referral. Long story short, in 2015, I was desperate; after 6 neurologists and no lead to the root of my neurological problems I drove to Ohio State, in Gahanna, OH, (2 hours away), and saw Dr. Oas in 2016. By George, he did it! Cracked the case.

He told me I had permanent damage in the most cavalier way possible. He was uncaring and obtuse and cruel. I will never return to him nor will anyone I know
