Dr. Oster is the best OBGYN. Her knowledge, expertise as well as her experience provides her with insight you don’t normally get from other doctors. She always goes above and beyond with her care and I appreciate that.

I have known Dr. Oster since she delivered my oldest daughter 35 years ago. She remains one of the most professional, thorough, warm & kind physicians I have ever known. I have been an ER nurse for more than 35 years, & have observed hundreds, perhaps thousands, of doctors in their interactions with patients, & I have high expectations for my own physicians. I can honestly say Dr. Oster is one of the best. She spent a great deal of time with me during my recent visit, explained everything, & answered all my questions. Her manner inspires confidence & trust. I think many women feel as I do, that your OB doctor holds a special place, since they are with you through some of the most important moments in your life. Seeing Dr. Oster always feels like seeing an old friend. She remembers you, asks about your family & genuinely seems to care. I feel very fortunate to be in her care, & would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an excellent GYN.

After having the same OB/GYN for over 25 years, I was a little nervous about meeting a new one, especially since I have several underlying health conditions. Dr. Oster made me feel comfortable the minute she walked in the room; I especially appreciated her taking the extra time to sit down with me (before I changed into the paper gown) to go over my health history. She was professional and thorough, while still coming across as caring and kind. I feel that my gynecological health is in good hands.

I have known Dr. Oster for many years. She delivered my two children and now my daughter is seeing her as well. I love that she takes the time to really talk to you on a personal as well as on a professional level. I will continue to go see her as long as she is in practice. She's the best! Thank you Dr. Oster for taking such good care of my daughter and I!

Dr. Oster is an amazing physician, she delivered all of my babies and is now caring for me in my 50's. I have referred many friends to her for surgeries and preventative care. Dr Oster discovered my Stage 3b Ovarian Cancer and has followed me and cared for me through the entire arduous journey. I highly recommend this clinic for new mothers, there are several young and very accomplished doctors in Obstetrics and Doctor Oster is now solely focusing on Gynecology. For those with gynecologic concerns, menopause issues and tumors or cysts I know that your high expectations for an OB/GYN office will be exceeded if you select this group! Also the lobby, office and exam room areas are contemporary, clean and beautiful!
