Dr. Acosta seemed knowledgeable and friendly upon the first appointment. However, a staff member named Elizabeth blatantly refused to schedule a follow-up meeting. Dr. Acosta had assured me that I could follow up if my condition worsened. The condition worsened, and Elizabeth simply refused to set the appointment or even let me schedule a time to talk with the doctor over the phone. She simply stated that the doctor doesn't talk to patients. Poor staff or poor policy.

Dr Acosta has done two surgeries for me and, given a choice, I would never go to anyone else. I am in a large city more than 300 miles away from him and it is worth my health and peace of mind to have him as my surgeon. He has excellent skills and keeps me on track.
