Dr. Oostman listened to my explanation concerning my lower back pain, examined, and analyzed my back and the exact location of the pain. He prescribed Naproxen for the pain w/a 20 day supply. He assured me it was not a serious injury; the pain is gone; my mobility has returned.

The doctor's adjustment was helpful and he provided me with some exercises to do at home. However, he seemed like he was in a hurry to get out of the room and didn't ask if I had any questions for him. I didn't get a chance to ask him since things I had wanted to ask. I feel life he could have explained to me what exactly my condition is in more detail so I could better understand what my road to getting it fixed will be like.

Prescription refills need improvement. Too slow!!! I have been taking Metoprolol for about five years. My refill needed doctor's approval and that took FOUR business days. New insurance for 2019 wants Allopurinol vs. Uloric. Pretty standard stuff. It took 3 business days to get the prescription filled. If my doctor is out of the office, please have someone else.

Reviewed on February 11, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Oostman did not introduce himself or explain my treatment plan with me as a new patient. He also did not explain why he was doing the adjustments he was doing and seemed to disregard my concerns about the level of pain I was in afterwards. He also, perhaps thinking aloud; mentioned doing some further tests but said he would wait to do that without explaining why. Do a better job explaining what is happening, what the treatment plan is & what you specialize in. A little extra time goes a long way.
