What People Say About Dr. Kurt Oesterling, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

After going to several appointments with my mom to see Dr. Osterling, I felt more and more uncomfortable. On two separate occasions he told us he hadn't had a chance to review her scans. Isn't that something that should be expected to be done prior to a patient visit? He was very unprepared and vague with his answers. Why were we here - for the office visit payment? After hearing now for the second time he wasn't prepared, it's time to find a doctor that cares about his patients.

There is no one you would want to put your situation to or in his hands. At first visit he is focused on all your records and reports but that is his way. He doesn't miss a thing. Then you will talk with Dr. asking questions then an exam. He has the words to comfort, no doubt. He has and IS DEVOTED to what he is doing. Ask him. The staff is just as kind as a staff could be. It truly is a feeling of a family there. I am still seeing him and always a welcome with honest caring. THE BEST IS THERE.

Dr. Oesterling and his staff were competent and friendly. He explained my biopsy report and genetic testing results in terms that I could understand and feel comfort from their outcomes. He is a patient, caring and gentle doctor/man. He assured me that he would be available to answer any further questions that I may have in the future.

I would recommend no one other than Dr. Oesterling. He is on the cutting edge of this field. His patients are so important to him and never do you feel like you are just another patient. His staff throughout is so heartfelt and kind. They give so much of themsleves and have the ultimate patience. I never doubted anything and in a time when so much is happening that is a big relief. God Bless all of the people in this field especially Dr. Oesterling and his staff.
