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.

I highly recommend him to my friends!

I’ve been going to Dr. Jostes for over 10 years. I reached a point in my health where I was faced with needing a total hysterectomy. Dr. Jostes educated my husband and I on my diagnosis our options along with procedure and healing. We trusted him with the surgery and followed the post op treatment plan. I’m so pleased to say I am 4 months post op and have healed very well! No complications or set backs at all! I highly recommend Dr. Jostes and his team for women of all ages.

Dr. Jostes has been my doctor for the last 14 years. I just had my first child and it was a wonderful experience. I was having problems getting pregnant and he referred me to a doctor that helped me get pregnant in just a few months. He made my pregnancy awesome. All my questions and concerns were addressed at every appointment. He gave me his honest opinion when I needed it and made sure I was prepared for the baby. I had a c-section and it went perfect. I can honestly say that he was the reason I was not scared. If you’re on the fence about your gynecologist, go see Dr. Jostes.

Dr. Jostes has been my doctor for over 10 years. I recently had a procedure with a local anesthetic. This was very painful and I was faint afterward. I was told I would be ok to drive.

Dr. Jostes has the greatest bed side manner, he listens and most importantly he starts his patient visits on time. I am usually in and out in 30 mins which is unheard of for a doctor visit.

I have been seeing Dr. Jostes since I was 18. He saw me through the years I didn't want to get pregnant, the years I wanted to get pregnant (and couldn't), and finally two successful pregnancies. He takes the time to explain everything, answer any questions or concerns, and has a wonderful bedside manner. Also, when you see Dr. Jostes, you aren't waiting around forever. Your appointment time is your appointment time. I have never waited longer than 5 minutes from the time I enter the lobby until I am called back, and am usually out within half an hour, at the most!

Dr. Jostes is wonderful! I've been seeing him for many years based on a recommendation from a friend. He has patiently and kindly provided his support and expertise through two miscarriages and two successful pregnancies and deliveries. He has a wonderful rapport with his patients; responsive scheduling; a strong office team; and a friendly, caring personality. Even through the challenges of the miscarriages and then getting pregnant with my second child, I never once considered changing physicians. I strongly recommend him!

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.
