Texas Oncology, Dr. Dennis Costa
Dr. Costa always allows for questions and answers. He goes over all test results. Dr. Costa also checks my heart and other areas of concern. He is very easy to talk with. His assistant is excellent. She makes note of all of my previous tests so that I can discuss them with Dr. Costa. I have been going to Texas Oncology since 2011 and would not go anywhere else.

Dr Costa is very real and knows his field , takes time to explain, I like him. HOWEVER, his billing department is TERRIBLE with filing insurance wrong or too late to even process claims through the insurance. Just got a call where they are trying to collect for lab fees from 2020. Yup charging over $200 for what was fully 100% covered. They also screw up my primary and secondary insurance company billing many , many times. Total incompetence in my opinion. They fail to properly file or file untimely and then send a bill for a FULL un negotiated rate to the consumer. It is a management issue with Texas oncology business office. This has little to do with the medical care provided except you could get hung being charged thousands due to their total incompetence. Don't pay them. You have a reasonable expectation of competence which they fail to provide. Look, its oncology, many will pass before payments are settled. A nightmare for the families.

The standard of care given to me by Dr Costa is unparalleled. His extensive knowledge is comforting when he treats me. However, the extraordinary amount of time I have to sit ands wait for him is exasperating. It is typically two hours, and this last visit was almost three hours. I really don't have this amount of time available. I would prefer to go about my business after checking in, and get a phone call 10-15 minutes before Dr Costa is available. I feel that this way of treating a patient is disrespectful.

Dr. Costa has been my oncologist for 10 years. Dr. Costa has always taken the time to talk to me about my bi-annual test results and has never hesitated to seek additional information if needed. I highly recommend Dr. Costa. In fact, I have recommended him to family and friends who have been diagnosed with cancer.

Dr. Costa has been my oncologist for 24 years. Dr. Costa takes time with his patients which sometimes put him behind schedule. That has never bothered me because I knew if I ever needed the extra time, I wouldn't be rushed. Over 24 years, he's gotten to hear all of my family stories and from year to year he remembers them all. My diagnosis and treatment all happened prior to moving to moving to Texas. So I am now basically on an annual check up basis. You won't find a better oncologist than Dr. Costa.

Dr Dennis Costa saved my life. During my treatment and after, he has been kind, caring, and genuinely sincere. He takes as much time as needed to discuss my concerns and to explain treatment and issues in a way that is easy to understand. Susan and Maria, my favorites of his staff members are also very personable and caring.

I would not recommend this location of Texas Oncology to my family or friends. I am a 20 year breast cancer survivor and have been seeing TX Oncology for those 20 years. I was not informed of a high Tumor Marker Test results done in May 2020. I noticed the high results of the test and called TX Oncology about it. It took them an additional 4 months to confirm the results and start the Chemo. I have had a great deal of damage from the Chemo and Tx Oncology has not been able to help me in ay way with my healing. The cancer is stable and that seems to be their only focus.
