One Star

Very arrogant and was more conserned about getting paid than replacing my hip due to auto accident. It was a no fault insurance..but we had another insurance as well to cover. He was concerned that he wouldn't get paid if one didn't pay and the other refused as well, Very POOR bedside manner. Will never recommend""

Excellent, and he explains thoroughly

Excellent doctor, and he is extremely thorough. Explains your options, and answers all questions. I had bi-lateral knee replacements, and I'm very satisfied with the treatment and follow up. Couldn't ask for a more thoughtful physician. Have recommended him to many others, and they are happy too.

Had no compassion and was totally arrogant.

Waited 3 months to see doctor. My first knee I had replaced by a different doctor due to Dr. Ostempowski wait schedule, I was in dire pain but could not get in to see the doctor for several months. Went in today to have my other knee examined and he was totally arrogant saying how rude I was was having my other knee operated on by a different doctor and then expecting him to look at my other one. His arrogance was shocking. I told him I would have happily had my first knee operated by him but he had no compassion for my situation. I was in dire pain, I could not stand nor sit and was desperate for help. He has no bedside manner and seemed all about the money instead of helping his patient. Would not recommend at all.

Wonderful practice, very friendly, courteous staff. Clean, convenient office, with x-rays on site. Dr. Ostempowski is an extremely caring and informative physician. He took the time to discuss not only my diagnosis and surgery, but my general health and well being also. He listened to my concerns and took the time and explained everything I needed to know as it pertained to me, not generalizations. I would highly recommend Dr. Ostempowski to anyone!
