What People Say About Dr. Mark Jostes, MD

Dr. Jostes has delivered both of my babies and both were wonderful experiences. In two pregnancies I only remember one office visit where I waited longer than 20 minutes to be seen and when you visit so often during a pregnancy this is key. Dr. Jostes has years of experience and his demeanor puts you at ease when you are a nervous pregnant woman. Every time I called the office with a concern or question they either got me in right away or I got a great explanation from the nurse.

Dr. Jostes was my GYN for several years before I moved across the state. We moved back because we missed family but also because I wanted him and only him to deliver our babies. I get nervous about everything but previous reviews are right when they say there's something about his gentleness that just puts you at ease. He used to have a crabby front desk person but I have had no issues so I believe she is gone. The staff has been very pleasant and making my first pregnancy such a sweet time.

I have been seeing Dr Jostes for years, from the moment I met him and his staff I knew I was in amazing hands. Before thinking about having a baby he listened to me, worked me in if I needed a visit, i was equally as important as all patients! I spoke with him about wanting to get pregnant, he was unbelievable! His personality, bedside Manner, & expertise led me to have the most amazing pregnancy and birth of my son that a girl could ever imagine. Hands down BEST DOC AROUND!

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Jostes and his staff. He was my doctor through my pregnancy and delivery of my daughter. I've never met a more kind and patient doctor. He took such great care of us! The office staff was so accommodating and the nurses were great. I have a beautiful, healthy one year old thanks to the expertise and care of Dr. Jostes , his nurses and office personnel.

I have been seeing Dr. Jostes for 10 years and LOVE him and his office. I have been able to call the office at any time and get my questions answered in a timely manner. He has been there for me through an abnormal PAP, to birth control options, to getting off birth control, and seeing him birth my sisters' three children. He has always been very supportive and I loved seeing how he dealt with my sister's natural births. Nothing is inconvenient and he came at any hour for her! 5 stars!

I feel like he is in a rush to see the next pt and does not take time to listen to my medical problem. He is looking into things I don't have and have such as cancer, STD's and runs tests that are not pretaining to my chief complaint. One day I went to see him for 2 things, I was told to come back for the second one and charged my insurance twice the same week for something that could have been taking care.
