Dr. Osman was very personable and professional as was his staff. If forms are filled out online, be sure to print and take a copy with with you. Otherwise you will have to fill them out again as the office is unable to print a hard copy. They validate parking, however I still had to pay the parking attendant a fee.

Dr. Osman was in attentive. he seemed rushed. He only diagnosed one of the two conditions I came to him for. I had to insist that he check his prescription against interactions with other drugs I take. There was a very dangerous interaction. If I had taken his prescription, I would probably not be alive to type this.

I thought that the Dr. was very professional with a positive attitude. I have a fairly easy thing to treat, but he took the time to listen and walked me through the steps on starting treatment. He also recommended things that my insurance will cover that could help me as well and scheduled me for a follow up visit so that we can make sure that we are on the right treatment path.

Saw Dr Osman for a skin rash I've gotten four times in the last ten years. He agreed with what my previous dermatologist used to do and when I told him antibiotics tend to upset my stomach he gave me a prescription for a softer antibiotic. Overall it was a fine visit but it felt a little rushed.

Dr. Osman has exceptional listening skills, shows empathy, is patient and has a very gentle injection technique. I have multiple skin problems and my skin looks the best it has looked in many years. Another positive about Dr. Osman is that he is cost sensitive - a rare characteristic among doctors. He always makes sure I'm set up to get the best prices on prescriptions and advises me about ways to save money for uncovered items. His office seems to be competently managed. His staff is capable and while they are very busy when I call, they always take care of my issues quickly and to my satisfaction. Sometimes you have to wait once you arrive for your appointment, but it's usually not too bad; maybe 15-30 minutes extra. This is not a big deal to me, but I know it's important to many people. Overall, I highly recommend him. His standards for patient care and the way he runs his business match my standards.

Before the Laser appointment, the receptionist knew that I needed a topical anesthetic cream applied to the area. I waited an hour to see the doctor, and then the M.D. didn't know that this procedure hadn't even taken place. So, I waited another half-hour. The Laser treatment took 45 seconds. Shouldn't the nurse have informed the doctor about the pre=laser treatment......?

I would def go back and see Dr. Osman. I did wait a long time before being seen (almost 1 hr in the lobby and another 10 mins or so in the office). However, once in, Dr. Osman was knowledgeable, polite and very patient. He took time to answer all of my questions and address my concerns. The treatment he prescribed worked very fast, with min side effects.

Dr. Osman has a nice bedside manner. He is a very attentive listener. He seemed calm and not pushy. He listened to my history and concerns and made logical recommendations based on what I shared. He made me feel comfortable. He is also cost conscious and brought the subject up rather than avoiding it as some doctors do. He was up front about what will work and what won't work for me. He is professional but at the same time it felt like I was having a chat with a friend about some problems I'm having. The staff was pleasant and they gave me a coupon for my prescription, free lotion samples and they validated parking. Overall, a good experience and I'll return as well as recommend him.

I arrived 30 minutes early so I could have numbing cream applied. When I arrived the technician had to "borrow" some from another dermatologist in the building.. I had to wait for that to arrive and then another 30 minutes beyond my appointment time to see the doctor. Otherwise everything went well and I like the results.
