Dr. Ter Louw goes above and beyond. He is kind, caring and has an outstanding bedside manner. He always has an answer to ANY question I may ask and answers with such care, respect and takes his time to talk with me. I never feel rushed during my time with him.
Had carpal tunnel surgery done on both hands. Dr. Ostric did a good job, I definitely would recommend him to others.
Dr. Ter Louw did my surgery. He did an amazing job and is very informative of every part of the process.
I was impressed with his thoroughness and he answered my questions honestly and with a sense of humor. I had a steroid injection in my hand and it worked! No more trigger finger! Thanks Chad!
Dr. Ostric recognized the issue I had with my left hand, especially the tendon on middle finger. Gave me assurance he can fix it with simple surgery. One week later or so, I had surgery and am currently in P.T.
This office & doctor have not only been courteous, but very professional. I would recommend them to anyone who has a need for medical attention to any problems they may have with a hand problem.
