I have been going to Dr. Oberstein for about 25 years. He is compassionate, patient, knowledgeable and willing to discuss all of your questions... all the qualities of a superb doctor. I don’t mind if I have to wait a little, because I know he’s spending that time giving the same quality of care to another patient! I recommend him every chance I get. I wish all my doctors were like him.

If you don't mind sitting in the waiting room for around a 1/2 hour, waiting in the examining room for another 45 plus minutes and NOT being able to get appointments, then maybe this is the Doctor for you. Definitely not for me anymore. Why some Drs think that your time is not as precious as theirs is beyond me. When you finish your appointment you get another one and God forbid you have to change it. Have to wait another 6 to 8 months beyond your original appointment. Twice this has happened.
