Dr. Kossoff didn't meet with me at my pre-colonoscopy appointment. When I was ready for my surgery, he did a fly-by ( stopped at the door, didn't introduce himself, nor did he speak to me.) And he was very rude afterwards. He also didn't speak to me during my follow-up appointment. He did colonoscopies for me previously and I didn't have this problem. I was actually thinking that maybe the father retired and this was his son. Or maybe he's getting too big for his britches. Very disappointed and never again!

Dr Kossoff performed my Colonoscopy. Everything went perfectly. You should follow the Prep Instructions, no short cuts !! It is pretty clear to me that Dr Kossoff takes this work very seriously and has a lot of experience (he performed my last colonoscopy 10 years ago). The staff at the surgical center are super friendly. My experience was great, in and out only a couple hours.

I recently had a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Kossof. His staff were very courteous, professional and helpful in preparing me for my procedure. They carefully explained all the steps to prepare and answered any questions I had. On the day of my procedure, everything was setup and all I needed to do was show up. Dr. Kossof personally followed up the same to discuss my results. It was very professional.

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.

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!
