I would recommend Dr. Osterbauer any day!!
Dr. Osterbauer is the only doctor to finally listen to me and what's been going on. I went to see him because I have epilepsy. He took the time to hear every detail. He asked me about my history and things that I didn't even think would matter to a Neurologist. He ran a group of tests and diagnosed me with things that my PCP should have found years and years ago. For instance, my doctors have been telling me that I have Endometriosis. They never did any tests, just went by my "symptoms". Come to find out, I don't have Endometriosis at all, I have PCOS and it's able to be controlled with just a few meds. So I've been living with this pain for all these years, for no absolute reason. I was so relieved to finally have answers...REAL ANSWERS! It was so amazing to finally have a doctor that took his time and WANTED to listen. Thank you for not making me feel like just another number.

Dr. Osterbauer is the most genuine and caring doctor that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He got to the bottom of my traumatic health crisis and got me back to my pre-Covid health after suffering from debilitating seizures and other ailments. Furthermore, he is getting to the root of the problems of other medical issues instead of just prescribing medicines. What I love most is that he truly cares about you as a person, which is rare nowadays in the medical field.

Two thumbs up! Dr. O has been an advocate for me over the years. Even fighting the insurance company! I’ve never had a neuro that cares like him.

Dr. O is not perfect, but he is the neurologist that listened, validated and tried to help. He brought a Lyme specialist to the team and they worked together. I know he has some personal issues, but that does not take away from how thoughtful he is. He listens.

Dr. Osterbauer has always shown a level of patient care that I have rarely seen in the medical profession. Upon my first meeting with him he was able to answer questions that I had for over a year.

Dr Osterbauer is my dr and my wife's. He's the best neurologist we've had (I've taken her to several over the last 3 decades for her epilepsy and he is the ONLY one to quickly identify she has PCOS which should've been diagnosed & treated decades ago as her condition is textbook. He also is the easiest to deal with, which is a real benefit for those with brain issues like ptsd. Highly recommend.
