I’ve been going to Dr. Jostes for over 20 years, he delivered my nieces and nephew and just delivered my son a month ago. I cannot recommend him enough. He’s kind and genuine and really cares about his patients. It’s odd to say, but I always look forward to my visits with him. His office staff is always great too. You can’t go wrong with Dr. Jostes!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Jostes for 21 years and after 4 pregnancies & 2 perfect babies I can boldly say that he is THE best of the best. Other docs make pregnant women suffer for 42 weeks before they’ll induce, labor for hours before giving an epidural.. but Dr. Jostes is on our side. I was so comfortable knowing I was in his care. He always returns calls, makes room on his schedule, has bedside manner, and has a great rapor with nurses & hospital staff. He never makes us feel like a bother, answers questions like a real person, and knows everything about this specialty.

Dr. Jostes is incredible. Not only has he taken great care of my health for years, but also my sister and mothers great care of health for years. He truly is lovely to speak with at every appointment, he really wants to get to know you as a person and find out your interests and home life. It’s rare to find a doctor that combines such personal touches and great care for a patient as a person with outstanding quality of medical care. I highly recommend becoming his patient. I’ve always said this about Dr. Jostes but he will forever be one of my favorite human beings in the world.

Dr. Jostes has been very charismatic throughout my entire 18+ years in his care. He took me on when I was in my 38th week of my 2nd pregnancy and I have had two other children under his care since. He has worked through multiple issues relating through my reproductive health, and has constantly sought resolutions to symptoms and underlying conditions through a variety of means.

Had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. Jostes for the last 8ish years and now gone through pregnancy and delivery of my first child. He has always treated me with such respect, professionalism, and compassion that I have always felt comfortable to discuss any of my needs. He made me feel at ease throughout my entire pregnancy and delivery even being an inexperienced new mom. Would definitely recommend him to any woman looking for a new OBGYN.

I found Dr. Jostes after having suspicions of having PCOS. Dr. Jostes was able to give me a diagnosis without making me feel less than. He has great bed side manor with his patients. Prior to coming to Dr. Jostes, I was terrified to go to the doctor. Now I enjoy coming into the office. The staff are so friendly and warm. Throughout my pregnancy Dr. Jostes took great care to listen to my concerns, was very thorough in looking for any issues and pregnancy care, and was very attentive during my delivery. I know that it is because of his excellent care that my pregnancy was able to go as smoothly as possible.
