Told I had to wait 3 months for an appt because I had not been there in 2+ years and was considered a "new patient". I had multiple deaths in my family & an elderly mom going through cancer, but ok, I let it get away from me, I can wait 3 months. 3 weeks prior to the appt the office calls and tells me they have to cancel & I have to wait ANOTHER 3 MONTHS for a new appt.They have earlier appt's available, just not for me. Keep your unbending policies and poor service, I won't be back.

I have been using Dr. Costello Medical services for over 25 years. DR. Laura Costello is highly ethical, caring and does her OBGYN work with the greatest of skill and expertise.
in Albany, NY |
I brought my 17 year old daughter for an appointment with her. My daughter wanted an IUD, but Dr. Costello is opposed to giving sexually active teens IUDs and ended up referring her to Planned Parenthood, who inserted the IUD with no issues. Dr. Costello admitted that both the CDC and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists endorse the use of IUDs in sexually active teens as being both safe and highly effective and that she interjects her personal feelings over science.
