Dr. Osterdahl saved me from being barren at age 20. He removed a dermoid cyst that destroyed my right ovary and almost destroyed the other. He was able to remove it without much scaring at all. I thank God for Dr. Osterdahl as I now have four children. He joked after the surgery that the old wives’ tale was that I ate my twin when I was in the womb...funny thing is, I have twins! Thank you God for Dr. Osterdahl!

Dr. Osterdahl has been my OB/GYN for 30 years. He always has time for a personal update before my exam. His staff has always been courteous and efficient. He has had the same nurse for the entire time I've been his patient and she is the BEST. I had three children two of whom were difficult pregnancies and he was wonderful with all of them. He has now delivered two of my grandchildren. I couldn't be happier.

This doctor was extremely rude to me and performed a polypectomy on me and d an c. He gave me no gyn instructions after the surgery, and after repeatedly telling him I had increased bladder frequency, pain and pressure, he gave me some bladder pain medication after 2 visits.He kept saying I have ibs and interstial cysitis, and I do not. The staff are not very nice, and cancelled an appt for me when I was supposed to see the doctor.
