    I went to Dr. Acosta after having several prior surgeries to treat my scoliosis. I researched several doctors and ultimately chose Dr. Acosta because of his superb background. After discussing all options we decided on a reconstructive procedure to straighten out my spine and make it more "balanced." I am now about 6months out and am completely pain free! Dr. Acosta is by far the best spinal deformity surgeon in Southern California!

    Dr. Acosta did my cervical neck surgery March 2014. I do not have any issues with the care I received. The surgery was successful. I really liked the Anesthesiologist and his team. I will say I do not recall seeing him during my hospitalization. I have total faith in his competency and skill. However I did not have a good experience at the Keck Medical Center. I was paired with a patient who had suffer a stroke and was restrained and who did not receive what I felt was appropriate care.

    If I had previous knowledge of Dr. Frank Acosta’s lack of abilities to preform modern surgical techniques I would have NEVER had used him to perform my lower lumbar surgery. Regardless of any claims regarding his education and medical background I found him and his team to be completely unprofessional and very rude in nature. The worst part was my treatment by Dr. Frank Acosta himself which actually met all the elements of medical negligence. PLEASE CHOOSE ANOTHER DOCTOR.
