    The assistant came in and told me what he thought it was then the doctor came in and said it was something completely different. Dr. Coscuelluela was totally dismissive and treated me as though I was clueless about my condition. It was not a pleasant experience.

    Dr. Cosculluela operated on both of my feet over a two year period. He is an excellent doctor both technically and in his demeanor. I found him to be a good listener and very compassionate. My surgeries were a success.

    After seeing two other doctors regarding the pain in my left foot, Dr. Cosculleula was able to diagnose the real problem and the correct treatment. He patiently listened to the description of my pain, evaluated my xrays and MRI and explained the recommended treatment. I found him to be patient, concerned, thorough and professional. Methodist Hospital is fortunate to have him on their staff.

    Dr. C was thorough and encouraging. I would highly recommend him to anyone with foot problems. He is conservative but thorough in his recommendations. Thank you Dr. C!

    The guy is pretty arrogant. As a former athlete, I have dealt with top doctors in sports medicine and all have had better attitudes. Maybe it's a Napoleon thing. Not sure how you have that when Methodist claims to work with all of the major sports teams. Probably wouldn't treat them like that. Have never had an unpleasant experience with Methodist until I encountered him. I don't recommend.

    Dr. Cosculluela had a good bedside manner. Unfortunately he grossly misdiagnosed my foot injury. He took some x-rays and put me in a boot for 30 days. After the 30 days my foot was still a little swollen. He told me at then to go to rehab. After rehabbing and doing exercises for 6 weeks my foot was still swollen and hurting. I went to another podiatrist who had me get an MRI. The MRI revealed I had a completely ruptured tendon and another torn tendon. 3 hr. surgery and 6 weeks off my foot.
    Houston, TX |
    uncaring, arrogant, annoying, bad bedside manners. He lets the residents do the work, he does not communicate with the patient and barely sees him; thus the end product is a disaster. Total waste of time, money and energy.

    2 day wait for an urgent appointment. Great care

    Did not listen to my concerns, dismissive, wasted appointment. Unfriendly assistant. Would NOT recommend.
    in Highlands, TX |
    Dr, C is very friendly, he explained the entire procedure of what he was going to do to repair my tibia and fibula. The office staff is also very friendly, knowledgeable.
    in Friendswood TX |
    I had a very complicated Lisfranc injury. He performed my surgery & I was very pleased with him as a doctor & a person.
