I have had interventional cardiologists before, but I never had anyone sit down with me and so thoroughly listen to my concerns and then explain what was going to take place. In the operating room. After the intervention he showed me the recording of the intervention so I could see the stent doing its job.

Dr. Kozina evaluated me for cardiac issues and medicated me until I was no longer responding and required an intervention. He is a great listener, fast thinker, and approachable doctor. Although he is ALWAYS busy with a high patient load, he makes sufficient time during visits and cares about his patients. He is a model of healthful living, positive energy, and professional competence.

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.

  • Appointment wasn't rushed
  • Listened & answered questions
  • Explained conditions well
  • Trusted the provider's decisions

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.
