While I adore Dr. Kozina and would give him 5+ stars, his staff is awful. They are difficult to get hold of, terrible at returning calls, and make scheduling appointments difficult.

I talked with Dr. K one-to-one for a time recently...I researched his background....He actually operated on me. He is not a very good doctor; he is a terrific doctor. Put his name at the top of your list if you need his kind of care and attention. Superb.
