Patient Comments (4)
in Belton, MO |
The best Neurologist I have ever had. He left the office that was close to me in Belton, MO, and I was limited to another Neurologist, and a NP of Neurology and for the last several years have had nothing but poor communications with them. I found out where Dr. Kosa was and asked my doctor if he would refer...........so now I finally have the best Neurologist treating me again, Dr. Kosa.
in KCMO |
I presented to Dr. Kosa as very complicated case after seeing 2 other neurologists. My PCP told me to fire my neurologist and go with Dr. Kosa. I did fire my neurologist and saw Dr. Kosa. Within 30 days he had me diagnosed with a rare disorder started treatment and worked tirelessly the next 2 years to get my insurance company to approve and pay for the very expensive treatments I need. It paid off. I am on my way to being able to live a somewhat normal life. I thank God for him every day!
in Kansas City, MO |
Dr. Kosa was very kind and really listened to where my headaches were coming from. He explained all procedures completely and made sure I was comfortable and understood everything that he was doing. Amazing!!
Shawnee, KS |
Dr. Kosa is a genuinely caring doctor who goes the distance to help his patients. I am a complicated case and he has helped me every step of the way. I have been to a multitude of neurologists, and Dr. Kosa is the first one to show me the respect and sincerity to help me fight my chronic condition.
