If you want a doctor that is going to advocate for you or your loved one, it's Dr. Osher. He is the best of the best! My mom fell and hurt her leg and Dr. O stepped in and made sure she is getting the best of care. Feeling the most confident I have along this journey since Dr. O has been in the picture. This type of care is priceless!
Dr. Osher is a great listener that enabled my elderly father to accurately describe the physical issues that needed to be addressed and solved. Dr. Osher was kind, considerate and very matter of fact in describing the best treatment of exercise, food, sleep and meds. The treatment was prescribed and Dr. Osher followed up to ensure my Dad was over his medical difficulty. Excellent doctor and a fantastic staff who care 24/7.
