    in Northridge, CA |
    I first met Dr. Acosta in 1994 when he performed surgery on me for an intestinal bleed. Not only is he a fantastic surgeon (I have had 4 other surgeries performed by him), he is an amazing person. He is smart, kind, patient, and puts a smile on your face when you are lying in a hospital bed and feeling low. I have the utmost trust in him. He is a vascular surgeon and is also sought after for cancer breast surgery. The breast he removed my lump from looks better than other.
    in Santa Clarita, CA |
    He's been my surgeon for 29 years since mastectomy of 1987. I have complete trust and confidence in his decisions of treatment for specific issues. He spends whatever time is necessary with each patient for explanation of diagnoses and recommended treatment, and/or surgical procedures, and what to expect post-op. Personally calls with test results and followups. Genuinely caring physician - excellent surgeon.
