      My first visit to Dr. Cossa. I left quite impressed. Never felt rushed when talking to him. He is an exceptional listener and answered all of my questions throughly. He makes you feel like this is the first time he has heard these questions and you are the first patient who has asked. A rare quality that most doctors don't have. He suggested alternatives that in a month may eliminate my need to stay on blood thinners. I can't tell you how happy I was to hear that!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
