My son had his tonsils removed and adenoids shaved down Dr Ostrower and his teamed prepared me for the “worst” but only the best happened. My son used to snore like an 18 wheeler truck and often choked and would sometimes stop breathing in his sleep. Since his surgery he has been sleeping like an angel and sounding like one also. The experience from his doctor visits to scheduling the surgery and even the amazing follow up calls from his staff, everything has been beyond amazing. Thank you Dr Ostrower for giving both my son and myself a good nights rest. You rock.

My son (4 years old) has his tonsils removed by Dr Scott Brietzke in May. I had an amazing experience with him and the staff. I wanted to do the surgery as soon as possible since we had travel plans and I wanted my son to have enough time to heal and recuperate after the surgery. The office was able to schedule the surgery within a few days of meeting the doctor. The staff was very attentive to every detail and followed up with me numerous times to make sure I received clearance from my son’s pediatrician and everything was ready to go. The day of the surgery, my son was very nervous and uneasy, but everyone, from the nurses to the doctor to the ladies in the front desk of the hospital were making sure that my son enjoyed his stay by giving him gifts and stickers and had him watch movies. After the surgery, Dr Brietzke was very thorough with the after care instructions and so were the nurses. After a few days, I also received follow up calls to make sure everything was ok. He was great

My 2 yr old son had to get tubes in both ears and Dr Ostrower made him feel safe and comfortable and I felt informed and trusting through the whole process. He is doing amazing now and hearing normally for the first time after the operation. Very happy! Definitely recommend!!

Terrible experience! Dr. Ostrower removed my 4 year old son's adenoids and tonsils, at his follow up visit he had an ear infection that was previous treated but wasn't fully cure. Dr. said i should go back to see my pediatrician because he doesn't treat the small stuff but only the big stuff as if my son's ear infection wasn't big enough for him to care for. He finally prescribed me with an stronger antibiotics to treat the ear infection he told me I can run 7 red lights if i needed to, rude.

I am very grateful with Dr. Ostrower & his team. They are incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to any parent without hesitation. My daughter is 2 years old and I was so scared of her reaction at the hospital but Dr. Ostrower's words made me feel confident and the entire Team at Joe DiMaggio made her feel like home. She had no problems at all in her recovery. From the bottom of my heart: Thank You

I have never had a better experience than I did with Dr. Ostrower and staff! My son has been a patient for the past 2 years for large (and I mean LARGE) tonsils and bear growling snoring. Dr. Ostrower spoke candidly about our treatment options. We decided on surgery, and everything met our expectations. My son healed rapidly from surgery and breathing clearly!

Dr. Ostrower & his team are incredibly professional, courteous, & knowledgeable. My 3 year old is terrified of doctors, hospitals, etc. Dr. O made him feel relaxed & even made him laugh. Dr. O's nurse (Patty) & surgical scheduler (Eduardo) were both extremely helpful. Surgery was scheduled at Joe DiMaggio. He enjoyed the pre op play area & was visited by fun clown. Everything from A to Z went extremely well and I wouldn't take him anywhere else. Well worth the drive from Palm Beach County!

I have seen several ENT Doctors in the past for my child due to his complexity. My experience in this office has far surpassed that of other offices. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Ostrower was outstanding. He took his time with my child and reassured my as we made a great treatment plan. I have never felt more confident that my child was getting the care that he needed.

When you are fortunate enough to have access to a skilled physician you have a heart of gratitude. What makes Dr. Ostrower and his team stand apart is the understanding that accessibility is the key to developing good rapport with patients and their families. Having the ability to call the nurse and have questions answered and concerns addressed inspired confidence that my child was in the most capable hands. Thank you Dr. Ostrower, for providing excellent, holistic care.
