Albuquerque, NM |
This doctor misrepresents the conditions she treats in her advertisements and the staff is rude and dismissive.
in Minneapolis, MN |
When the many doctors I had seen in Minnesota were baffled by my condition and told me there was nothing they could do to help me, a friend recommended Dr. Costello. Within 1 year she has helped restore me to almost full health. I highly recommend you see Dr. Costello!
Perris, CA |
Dr. Costello is one of the finest doctors we have ever have seen. My daughter and I have a combo of AIs, Inflammatory diseases and Lyme. No other doctor would work properly with our immune system. She believes it is her job to get your immune system back to a healthy state - so it can do the job it was intended to do. YES, she speaks at a higher level than I can understand but I take notes and study. Mostly, I listen, learn and do what she says. She has given us our lives back.

She is full of herself and talked down to me when I didn't use a provider she recommended. I never received the type of care I went to her for in the first place.

She is obviously very intelligent, but unfortunately, is not always prone to listen to patient concerns.
