Dr. Cost is very personable and professional and I know I will get excellent care on each and every visit. The office is very quick to get you in and out and Lynne Myer the patient advocate coordinator is so pleasant and wonderful to speak with and she also cares very much for the practice and all of the patients. It is actually very nice to go to the doctor! Thanks Dr. Cost and Lynne for providing such a great atmosphere and making my visit so comfortable. Sincerely, Susan Icenhour

While the doctor is excellent, the support staff lacks professional polish. Overall, the front office is well intentioned but chaotic. There is a great deal noise and loud verbal communication within the team with little focused listening or communication to the patient. Multitasking is expected, but can be disrespectful. I was agog when my name was shouted from the back of the office to let me know the exam room was ready. A respectful escort should be standard.
