Stamford, CT |
Cannot imagine a better experience under very trying circumstances. From the scheduling of the appointment to the interview and examination by Dr. Oster we were put at ease and reassured about the potential of a positive outcome. IF there were a rating higher than 5 star Dr. Oster would receive it.
