      Very friendly and patient.
      in Grand Junction, CO |
      DO NOT GO TO THIS PHYSICIAN. He lies to his patients and instructs the staff to do the same. Tammy is the most rude medical office person I have ever experienced. I am in the health business and if any of my staff treated a patient like she treated me I would fire them. Tammy lied to me about why my moms surgery was rescheduled. She blamed in on the surgery center even though it was the physician that wanted to change the date so he could recover from a 100 mile race. IT WAS THE LYING......
      Grand Junction, CO |
      I regret having my surgery done by Dr. Oster. His office staff in Grand Junction is incompetent. I read the negative reviews and did not heed their advice. My mistake. The negative reviews were accurate.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
