I would never recommend someone seeing Dr. Cosgrove. I saw him regarding neck discomfort and pain I have had for a few years gradually worsening. I'm a dad with 3 young kids. The only "exam" he gave me was turning my head side to side. Then he told me to take ibuprofen and do yoga. I tried to discuss my neck issue further, but he basically just told me to call him if I need him and moved along. I've never been angry leaving a doctor's office until I left that appointment. Very poor doctor.

I do not like needles much, so I opted for anesthesia prior to injections in back. The Anesthesia did not work, and when I told him, he acted as though I was a liar. He said it had to have worked. I went back for the second injection and same thing happened. I felt no effects at all of anesthesia. He again acted as though I was a liar. I did not return. I believe he was giving me saline as a placebo to save money. He is aweful. Do not trust him with you pain problems. Find another doc.

He is very thorough on the initial visit and his staff is very nice. They have a lot of rules in place to protect the patients and the medical practice and they are registered with the state as a pain clinic. I had some blocks and they were really not too painful at all and they helped my pain.
