      Minimal experience with doc - kept getting moved to assistants

      This man is more than awesome. After two back surgeries, my husband was still unable to bear the pain or walk. We were sent to Dr. Kost as a last resort. Dr. Kost did a thorough hands-on examination of just about every bone in my husbands body. No one had ever taken this much time with him. Dr. Kost suggested that he didn't feel the back was his problem and felt he had serious hip issues. After left hip replaced he is 90% improved. Right hip being done in March. Thank You for caring so much!

      I've been seeing Dr Kost and his staff 17 years. I find his explanation of treatment plans, medications and surgical interventions to be very thorough and easy to understand. I greatly appreciate the compassion he shows towards his patients.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
