Pittsburgh, PA |
Horrible Doctor, very rude, condescending, and lacks empathy and compassion.
Uniontown, PA |
In 04/2008, I was 46 years old and diagnosed with bladder cancer. After thorough research and careful consideration by me, my family and my PCP, I decided to seek treatment with Dr. Ost. My surgery was during 07/2008 and due to anesthetic complications, I was comatose for a long period of time. Dr Ost stood his ground and ensured that I remained in his direct care rather than be warehoused at a skill nursing facility. Dr. Ost saved my life in a kind, caring and professional way. I owe him!

Our son needed circumcision revision, was referred to this hospital having him as the Doctor to carry out the procedure. first meeting with him, we brushed it off as maybe he might be having a bad day, but we were wrong, all our meeting with him after, had been emotionally draining. He treat us like a bullet had been put to his head to attend to us, showing body language like we were banch of idiots he had to deal with. Very uncomfortable expirence we will do anything to avoid in the future
