I love Dr. Kossoff and his amazing staff. I would highly recommend. They are caring and very professional. Trust me when I say " They are all about the patient" You matter to them and they take care of you like you are their family. I am grateful to Dr Kossoff for fixing and keeping a careful watch on my conditions. Thank you again. They are amazing. Keep up the excellent care.

Started out great he seemed engaged and working my issue. But then he pawned me off on his PA, and they botched medications multiple times, wrong one, wrong dose, too little so it ran out and on and on. Then condition I saw him far came back and worse, in extreme pain call and can't see him until 5 weeks later? Crazy poor business. Didn't fix the problem, not interested evidently with a pawn off to a PA...not there when you need him. Grabbed my records and moved on. High hopes here...poor

I went into the office very upset and sick, and I was treated very poorly by the staff and doctor. I was scheduled for an endoscopy after 2 minutes of Dr Kossoff coming in, not speaking with me, pressing on my stomach with no explanation. I left more upset and confused. After my endoscopy Dr Kossoff did not speak with me, and only to my mother even though she was not on any release and I was in my late twenties. I will never go back. No bedside manner or respect.

Dr. Kossoff always goes above and beyond to offer you the best care possible. His office staff is excellent and when we call we don't wait and a professional and polite person answers the phone. Dr. Kossoff has both experience and empathy, a rare combination these days. Because of Dr. Kossoff my husband was diagnosed early with pancreatic cancer, and he has a chance to survive it!!

Dr. Kossoff was very professional and treated me with kindness and concern. He put my safety and well-being first. He didn't just rush in and treat when he saw an area of concern. He referred me to a specialist and then that specialist sent me back to him. He made a plan that was well thought through and it airs on the side of caution. I feel fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Kossoff. I know I am in a doctor's hands that is truly about helping and healing.
in New Market, MD |
Dr. Kossoff is a knowledgeable, caring and insightful specialist. He made me feel secure, and confident on my first visit and has a very calm attitude which attributes to his great bedside manner. I appreciate the fact that he took the time to check on my well being after each procedure and reassured my doubts and concerns. The staff is professional and very accommodating. The whole experience was pleasant and I was grateful for the short wait time.

Dr. Kossoff is an exceptional doctor. He is the most compassionate and caring physician I have encountered. My health was his main concern when I went in for an emergency appointment. His follow up is awesome. I would recommend Dr. Kossoff to anyone I know!
