Staff was effecent at check in, x rays followed intake and after that I saw the doctor in less than 15minutes. The doctor examined my injury, and ordered an MRI for a future visit. Dr. Postma is one not to rush into surgery and provided several as alternatives to treat my injury.

He was very straight forward. After seeing 3 different orthopedics I finally get an answer for why I was having kneeissues. No running around and waiting. Would definitely recommend to anyone that’s looking for an orthopedic.

Dr. Postma has excellent bedside manner, was not in a hurry during the visit (a problem I find with other doctors), and took time to thoroughly answer all of my questions. After presenting his diagnosis, he recommended three options and gave pros/cons of each option. Highly recommend.

Took the time to explain my condition and the pros and cons of various treatment plans. Thoroughly discussed my MRI results. Gave me a realistic understanding of what to expect in a situation where surgery might or might not be the right choice. Very no-nonsense which I appreciated.

Dr. Postma had been the surgeon for my son and my husband, and the recent work he did with them was so terrific that I naturally went to him with my knee problem. He is definitely an expert in his field,and is very confident with diagnoses and proposed treatment. He listens to your concerns, and elicits your feedback as to your treatment. He answers all questions, and has been wonderful before and during my son's and husband's surgery with responding to emails about the surgeries and aftermath. I highly recommend Dr. Postma, as I know I will get the same treatment as my family.

I didn't have to wait too long considering I made the appointment at very short notice. Dr Postma was courteous and to the point. He made some small talk but clearly he preferred concentrating on the actual issue at hand. Thatwas fine with me, but some people might consider him not friendly enough. I was happy to get a clear diagnosis in very short time.

I had a decent visit with Dr. Postma at Medstar even though the Medstar radiology nurse who checks in patients at x-rays was incredibly rude and unprofessional. Dr. Postma took time to listen to how I injured my knee, made sureto touch and thoroughly check my knee, and asked me questions of the pain level and type. I was a bit thrown off because his picture and actual profile in person doesn't match. He also doesn't have great bedside manners just because he is pretty intimidating and very short in general. I had to ask him more questions to explain more in detail for me.

This was my first visit to Dr. Postma, but not my first at Georgetown MedStar. My experience with Dr. Postma was exceptional, just like all others I have had at Georgetown. From the moment I walked in, everyone was very friendlyand professional. My registration was smooth, and the lady brought my insurance and id cards back to me, rather than calling me up to the desk again. The xray process was smooth, and Dr. Postma came to the examination room right on time. His evaluation was clear and concise, and understandable. We have a plan going forward and I look forward to seeing him again in two months!!!

He is great. The front desk staff needs some help. They did not have my documents ready and wanted me to fill them out all over again which defeats the purpose of completing them prior to the appointment. Plus although Iarrived early I waited to see the doctor for an hour after my appointment started. I'm sure they were just behind but would have liked someone to have acknowledged the fact that they were so behind and keep me updated on the progress.

Going to Georgetown hospital and finding parking is really chaotic. I had some bad experiences with MedStar in the past and really didn't want to use them. Unfortunately, they were the only practice near me that took my insurance for orthopedicsspecializing in knees. Dr. Postma was knowledgeable but I felt rushed. I think I spent 5 minutes total with him. The office staff were friendly, unlike the ones at the McLean location. Overall, I would have happily gone to another practice if they were accessible to me.

He was brusque but to the point. Efficient in delivering a diagnosis, but not warm and fuzzy, though perhaps bone doctors don't need to be warm and fuzzy, as primary care docs should.
