Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Kosmo is wonderful. He has a very comfortable nature about him. He is kind and down to earth. But even more importantly he knows his stuff. You can just tell he is one of the best Dr.'s around. He explains everything making sure you understand and he listens. I wish I had seen him sooner.

I was referred to Dr. Kosmo by my surgeon. I had a double mastectomy in June. I felt Dr. Kosmo was very kind and explained my prognosis well. He took into consideration my desires for treatment and was willing to work with me . The nurse I had was very nice and the M.A. to Dr. Kosmo, Maryann was very helpful and kind also. Would totally recommend this Doctor.
