This is a wonderful practice. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I went to Caitlin Stowe, PA for acne and what ended up to be a staph infection. She had excellent bedside manner and listened to my problems and treated me great. Very smart physician assistant, they all really know their stuff here!
in Verona, PA |
I had a golf ball size cyst on my head. Derm #1 said I'd have to shave my head to get it removed. Dr Costa did it without shaving my head! She's treated my kids for various skin issues (the pediatrician said we're an eczemetis family). We're all very happy with her skill.
