It has been about a year since Dr. Cost performed my prostate surgery and everything went great. I have been more than pleased with the nerve sparing laparoscopic procedure that was performed. Dr. Cost has a great demeanor that is calming during a very chaotic time. His surgical skill as stated in other reviews is exemplary. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs prostate surgery.

Dr Cost is an incredibly kind and compassionate physician and a very skilled surgeon. I was so glad I had him to do my surgery--especially when I ran into some complications. He is just the kind of doc you want to have in your corner. He is a strong advocate for his patients and I felt like he did whatever it took to make sure I was as free of stress and anxiety as I could be before, during and after the surgery. Great doctor!

Thoughtful and competent. My surgery went as explained, and his surgery team was excellent.
