First visit was fine. Doctor was animated, proactive and full of treatment plans. My second visit was a complete waste of time. It seemed to me that she simply gave up since the first 2 treatments were unsuccessful. No tests or other therapies were suggested except meditation. I've been in chronic pain for over 2 years and have tried biofeedback in the past. Even when pressed for other ideas, possible causes, or the necessity of a diagnosis all she would circle back to was meditation. She may be a fine doctor for people with simple straight forward disorders but if you need help or real answers I'd highly recommend you go elsewhere.

Dr. Costa was prompt in her care when I was seen in the ER. She was kind and knowledgeable. She explained all tests to be done and all results when available. She answered all my questions and never seemed rushed. Her level of compassion was amazing as well. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone in need of a neurologist.
