Did I receive a service ? I ask myself this, even when I called 2 days in advance ( Scheduled the appointment a month in advance ) just to check if it was still a go, there procedure is if you do not answer the day before your appt. is given up because I was at work and missed the one call. Now fast forward, I saw the doctor for 10 minutes, ( my asthma is acting up ) he gave no assurances of comfort or this is the action I want you to take just guided me out the door and sends me a bill later.

I am a caregiver of my mother for many years. She has multiple conditions including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, COPD, kidney disease...all of which contribute to her condition and usually are seen as co conditions since the lungs, heart and kidneys all work hand in hand. Dr Osafo is a wonderful lung doctor and I highly recommend him & his nurses are good too. HOWEVER, his office person is NOT. The front desk man is NOT HELPFUL OR NICE AT ALL. Our pharmacies don't like him either.

This doctor is horrible and only after your money; he does not care for his patients. After seeing this doctor for over 15 years I developed a terminal condition as a result of the medication Dr Osafo prescribed to me. The doctor even told me to my face I shouldn't have been on this medication for so long. Needless to say after confronting this doctor of his misdiagnosis and neglect, his office refused to call me back regarding my attempt to get my medical files from the past years.

Dr. Osafo is a great critical care medicine physician. He took care of both of my parents with compassion and a vast knowledge of each of their illnesses. He was the only physician that could talk to my father and make him understand things. My father was a very hard headed man and extremely hard of hearing. We were all very grateful for his care. My husband an I both see him for sleep apnea. I highly recommend him for any pulmonary needs people are experiencing. All around great physician!!
