Seemed to do a good job replacing my valve. However he left follow up to nurse practitioners who in my option were a disappointment

I thought his front desk was fine. My issue was patient care. I was readmitted to the hospital due to complications from open heart surgery I had 7 weeks prior at the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Costello office was informed but no one came to check on my condition. Was there 24hr. To this date no one has ever called or inquired about my health. St Luke's did not call in a cardiologist to see me in the hospital. I called on a different Dr. was diagnosed correctly in 40 min. I will never go back.

It was very difficult to schedule an appointment and get heard The staff was utterly rude and disrepectful The front desk and assistant are a joke Coming from a big city clinic to Boise cardiology is like going back 40 years in time in terms of quality of service and care for patients.
