in Baltimore, MD |
I was in a car accident and needed hip surgery at 18 years old. Dr. Postmas was one of the only doctors in the area that would perform this surgery. He is super friendly and explains things so that they are easy to understand. He did so well and I liked him so much my mom and sister later went to him to have the same surgery for a car accident and fall. One of my favorite doctors I've ever met.
Lorton, VA |
I highly recommend Dr. Postma. He gives his full attention, and explains everything in detail. He's passionate about exploring nonsurgical options before recommending surgery. I can't say enough about his superb bedside manner. He's a awesome doctor and surgeon.
Washington, DC |
He is very personable but his staff is unfriendly and he does not return phone calls on a timely basis.
