We visited Dr. Costa's office three times. We waited two hours to see him on the first and second visits. We waited four and a half hours for the third meeting. The doctor appeared angry when we declined to buy what he prescribed (cash only) from him. But he is knowledgeable.

Been going to Dr Frank for 2 years. found him to be very knowledgable and a easy to talk to cool dude. He thinks outside the box and is open to new therapies. Most doctors give the standard by the book approach. Not always right approach. Yes the wait is long, But as they say good things come to those who wait.

Doctor is rude acts like he is doing you a favor by seeing you. I waited 2 hours for my appointment. His staff is just as rude they always say someone will call you back and they never do and if you call back they are rude and couldn't care less.

Showed up at his Bethel Park location and waited 2-3 hours for a 5 minute consultation. Week later had to drive all the way to Monroeville for the operation (had I known it wasn't at his Bethel Park location I would have never chosen him). Had third appointment at yet a a third location where the staff had no idea what they were doing and I had to wait an hour and a half for a 5 minute meeting where he was extremely rude. Worst doctor's experience I've ever had!

Dr. Costa is an excellent physician and surgeon! He takes time with me and even takes my call during off hours! He is a critical thinker who partners with me regarding my battle with cancer! Sincerely submitted, Dennis S.

I hesitate to even write this review, because Dr. Costa is one of the most thorough, caring doctors you could ever meet. He is attentive and darn good at his job. The problem lies in his staff, which is tragic to me. I waited over 2 1/2 hrs after my appointment to get in. When you call to ask questions they say they will call you back and won't. The day before my procedure, I still didn't have a time to be there. I could go on with examples. Great doctor, not so good staff.

I have worked in healthcare for 40 years and never met a doctor so caring, so warm, or so reassuring as Dr Costa. He listened to my husband's concerns, he explained complex problems in simple terms, and he assured us of his personal involvement and care. He made himself infinitely available to us for any questions, not just about urology concerns, but any other health issues. He respected that we traveled a long distance to reach him, and he took that into consideration when scheduling.

I was only at this doctor's office twice and spent 6 hours there (between the 2 visits) and only saw the doctor once. The first time was a consultation for a procedure. I was there for 4 hours before the doctors saw me, when i did meet with the doctor it took about 10 minutes. The second time I came back was for a follow up. They canceled my initial appointment and rescheduled me the following week. Spent 2 more hours there and walked out. Would never refer anyone to this office.

Arrogant and rude made it seem like he was doing me a favor. Staff is just as bad. Cursing and refusing to talk to patients because they are busy.
