Patient Comments (4)
San Diego, CA |
He came to the appointment utterly unprepared & uninformed even though we had hand-delivered all materials weeks prior. He literally says "I don'tt know why you are here." He finally finds the reports, and says he has reviewed them, and begins asking questions. When told that all the details are in the reports, he says that he hasn't looked at them, and that he just wanted to "make the best use of our time together." Perhaps making best use of our time would have been to prepare! Shameful!

Dr. Kosty has been my oncologist for 3 years. He is very conscientious and LISTENS to me. I can call or e-mail him, and he always gets back to me within hours. I wish other doctors possessed his qualities! I respect his advise and professionalism.

He is caring and very competent. He has kept me alive for many years beyond what others had expected. He treats me with respect by listening and really hearing any concerns I may have. He is very professional and I am thankful he is my oncologist.

He may know cancer but he has NO bedside manner. He is abrupt and in a hurry.
