Falls Church, VA |
Excellent care. Very thorough. The doctor, PA and all of the staff have been wonderful. I'm feeling much better!
in Alexandria, VA |
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!
