I would never recommend this Dr. I just had a baby and she was not involved the entire induction. The last two weeks before my induction she did not call me back even though I experience low sugars. I ended up being in labor for 52 hours that ended in a c-section. I am type 1 diabetic and was aloud to use my insulin pump the entire time, approved by the hospital. My blood sugars were 80-90 the entire time. I ended up staying in the hospital for 6 days with fluid in my lungs and recovering from a long horrific labor and c-section. Dr. Ostrander came in the day before my last day and took my pump away, told them to give me 8 units with every meal and said she will not be accessible by phone for the next two days. She was rude and ultimately put my life in danger. After she left, my blood sugars went from being low at 50 to high at 267. They did not correct my high blood sugar and then told me to eat more. I will no longer be a patient of hers anymore due to the lack of quality of care.

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.
