Patient Comments (6)
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.

Highly recommend. He is knowledgeable, kind, and courteous!

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.

Caring, knowledgeable professional. Shows empathy as well as listening to me.
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.
