Patient Comments (4)

Absolutely HORRIBLE bedside manner. Will not allow you to talk...HE does the talking... very arrogant and does not listen to the patient or family at all. Never came to see the patient after surgery... I would definitely talk to him before you decide to use this doctor... we had to have emergency...more

Poor office staff. Dr. Kossoy was extremely polite and professional, told me that he wanted surgery on a specific date and that his admin would set everything up. I was told I would receive a call the next day, to go in for blood work. I waited 2 days before I called back to find out nothing...more

Dr. Kossoy misdiagnosed my hernia as an ingernial hernia when it was actually a femoral hernia. He couldn't figure out why I was so swollen 3 weeks after surgery and could have simply done an ultra sound to see that he had misdiagnosed me. He told me that my hurnia was going to be so easy to fix....more

Worst bedside manners possible. No compassion for the patient OR the family. He performed a surgery on my dad that caused further damage but refused (no surprise here) to accept responsibility. Waiting room at his office is unorganized and long waits. Bottom line: wish we had never met this doctor....more
