What People Say About Dr. Patricia Ostrander, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Ostrander has been my endocrinologist for at least 15 years, and though she's a 2-hour drive from my house, she's well worth it! I'm a 67-year-old female who's had Type 1, Insulin-Dependent Diabetes since 1969, almost 50 years. I live in Nevada City, CA, way out in the boonies, fairly rural. It takes us about 2 hours, depending on traffic, to drive to Sacramento. We're retired, and now on Medicare, so I'm happy she's still covered as my physician. She rates more than 5 stars, like 10!

Not likely at all. I had an appointment with Dr. Ostrander a few years back. It was one of the work physician-client experiences of my life. Maybe it was just a personality conflict, but I found her to be rude, icy, condescending, and a poor listener. I never went back.

The office staff were professional, kind, and compassionate. My wait time was a little longer than I expected, but she was worth it. Dr. Ostrander spent nearly an hour with me. She was patient and understanding. She took her time explaining the intricacies of what was happening to me regarding my hypothyroidism as well as menopause. Her kindness and understanding made the drive from Redding to Sacramento worth every mile. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of her services.
