Patient Comments (3)
in Southlake |
I have never met a more caring and compassionate doctor in all my life. I have met doctors constantly ever since I was born, and Acosta definitely takes the cake! He puts the patients care, safety, and most importantly happiness and quality of life first above everything else. That's why I reccomend him to anyone who is in a situation similar to mine! I see him for a different area of treatment, but the quality of his care will stay the same no matter who you are, or what you're there for.
in Arlington, TX |
Was not impressed at all. Provided no examination of my child instead relied solely on the RN's assessment. Made a lot of assumptions and then proceeded to talk about medication for a condition that had not been diagnosed! When challenged on this point, he claimed the child "probably" had it or "might develop" it.
Ft Worth, TX |
He was nice and caring at the beginning but then he turned into being a little rude and condescending sometimes. Doesn't listen to parent's concern about kid's condition very well. Egotistic, not a team player. Motivated by factors other than patient's well being. Hard to book an appointment with him. Doesn't reply to seizure medication refill request in time. I had to call many times to finally get my kid's seizure first aid kit refill approved (the pharmacy also sent him three requests)!
