Horrible Dr. Abrupt, rude, no eye contact. I asked for a medication review which wasn't done. He minimized my concerns about my health to the point of implying I shouldn't be there. My Father & his brother died from heart failure in their mid forties. I have tachycardia. I have illnesses that make me more likely to develop heart disease. Don't waste your time with this extremely rude unprofessional Dr.

I had a very serious VT/VF condition leaving me in cardiac arrest several times. I underwent an extensive ventricular ablation procedure with the Impella 2.5 ventricular assist pump. I have a long and very checkered cardiac history including a bypass, 2 stents, 2 atrial ablations, MVP and CHF. Dr. Costea was able to accurately assess the problem and correct it. In short, I owe my life to his skill and passion.

I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. He is a very professional and compassionate individual who gives you your best options and explains them in layman's terms so one can make an informed decision. He and his staff are very friendly and helpful. I arrived a couple of minutes late on a Friday afternoon and they were so accommodating at a very difficult time.
