Great! I have been seeing Dr. Ostendorf for 4 years now and am very satisfied. He treats me for allergies, asthma, sinus problems, and reflux. He was a Godsend at a time when I needed a good doctor who could treat several conditions. When I went on Medicare some of my old doctor's dropped me because they did not take my supplemental insurance so I was in a bind. Dr. Ostendorf was glad to take me as a patient. He also now treats my husband for asthma and reflux. We really love him!

Dr. Ostendorf performed ballon sinuplasty and sinus surgery on me because of repeat sinus infections (11 in the past year). He is VERY professional and knowledgeable. I have the utmost trust in him and highly recommend him.
