Dr. Kossoff has always gone the extra mile for my family. He takes the time to fully explain our conditions and the treatment plans he is proposing. His practice has taken care of my wife and I for varying GI issues for over a decade. The staff has always been very professional to us and is very proficient in answering all questions and concerns. The facility is very clean and well organized.

Dr. Kossoff has been my gastroenterologist for over 1o years. As a retired nurse, I find him and his entire staff to be very professional, yet caring. I have several issues that need to be treated and I find they are there whenever I need them. When you meet with them, they take as much time as you need , so you fully understand what is going on. I would highly recommend he, and his staff to anyone. In fact, my family members are also their patients!

I recently had a colonoscopy that went well. But the heart monitoring as part of the procedure showed issues with my heart. At the 3 week follow up after the colonoscopy, Dr. Kossoff was concerned that my appointment with a cardiologist had been pushed out to 2 weeks in the future. He was concerned that my heart rate was elevated. He called a nearby cardiologist and I was seen the same day. I appreciate the extra time Dr. Kossoff spent at the follow up. It could turn out more important than the colonoscopy itself.

He has terrible bedside manner. I felt he did not explain my diagnosis to me in detail and left feeling very disappointed. I would not recommend him.

Dr. Kossoff is by far the best gastroenterologist in the Frederick area - and maybe the entire State of Maryland. He has the awards in his office to prove it! I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kossoff for over 8 years, while residing in different locations that are at minimum 50 miles away from his Frederick, MD office. However, Dr. Kossoff’s professionalism, attention to detail and care, along with his affability has made me want to keep Dr. Kossoff as my GI doctor for my Crohn’s Disease without hesitation, no matter my zip code.

Dr. Kossoff and his entire staff are highly professional, and more importantly are very attentive to my health issues. Dr. Kossoff is always available to answers my questions and very concerned about my overall health. I would recommend anyone needing a gastroenterologist and specialized care (e.g., colitis, IBS, etc.) call Dr. Kossoff and his 1st class staff.

You will walk into a clean, friendly, comfortable lobby for the Dr. Kossof office on Thomas Jefferson Drive. The front desk were organized and the team in the back at checkout were very helpful too. When I am with Dr. Kossoff, I feel that he gives me all of the time needed to finish a proper, thorough visit. The attention and time they gave me is priceless and he answers all of our questions and the communications by all the team is excellent too. You should go here for your GI needs.

I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Kossoff and his team. I was having gallbladder pain over a long holiday weekend. I called first thing Monday and they got me in later that same day. After hearing my story, they ordered me blood work and an ultra sound STAT through FMH Rosehill. After receiving my results, Dr. Kossoff stopped at nothing to get in touch with me that night. I was already asleep and when he couldn't reach me, he called my husband several times until he answered. My numbers were
