Dr. Costner listens well, and can determine quickly if a skin issue needs immediate attention or not. She is thorough in her examination protocol. And she is very personable. She has been very generous to work me into her busy schedule when I had concerns. She even took a look at my son who isn't even her patient. And my mother loves her as well.

Dr. Costner has been my & my husband's doctor for years. I have LUPUS (SLE) since the 1990s. She has been responsible for getting & keeping my LUPUS (SLE) flares under the best control possible. I owe her all the gratitude I hold in my heart for all she has done for my maintaining the best quality of life I can have. We love & have the highest respect for her. She is the best qualified & experienced Dermatologist for immune or any skin issues. Dr. Costner also treated me for Shingles. Dr. Costner immediately began treatment & got control of it for which I am very grateful. Always thorough & highly intelligent. She is the most beautiful, understanding, experienced, qualified, person one could ever dream for as a person & as a professional Dermatologist Doctor. The best Doctor ever! We can't think of any way for her to improve. Highly recommend! Rheta & Dan

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.
