in Tenafly, NJ |
Dr Kosofsky spent time listening and understanding the needs of my child. When I faxed him questions, he emailed me back that day. Excellent, caring doctor
Unfortunately not good. He is not personable and seems honestly that does not care. My daughter in his view had spasms and doctor in other practices dont agree. We r still seaeching for the diagnoses but i am glad i found a neurology practice that truly cares for my daughter. Overall cornell isnt like that.
