I highly recommend Dr. Peter Costa, MD. He is extremely knowledgeable. He is focused and asks pertinent questions, runs tests then explains what is causing your pain in such a way that it is easily understood. He then presents options for your recovery. He is quite pleasant and personable. The office building on Mica Drive has X-ray machines, a MRI machine and any other equipment that might be needed so you don't have to run all over if you need these tests.
