Dr. Costner has one of the best bedside manners I have ever experienced. She is thorough in assessing a patients condition and explanatory. She truly engages her patients in the formulation of a care plan. She's also one of the most upbeat and positive people I have met. That alone helped dealing with my health issues less stressful.

She is so amazing. I went to several dermatologists for my issue and she was the only one who took an initiative on solving the problem. She is known as a “problem solver “ by other physicians and I can see why. She takes hard cases and enjoys figuring out what is going on. She went the extra mile for me and I have so much faith in her. She has a very inviting personality and is extremely encouraging and optimistic. Dr Costner is very intelligent and I look forward to my future appointments.
