Dr.Kosa was great! Today was my first appointment with him and I really feel like he listened and wanted to help me manage my headaches. My mom came with me and she was so impressed with him she will be switching to him for her future appointments.

Dr Kosa has an amazing ability to accurately diagnose problems (even some unknown) then confirm with scans or MRI. His staff ( Marla) then made necessary arrangements for corrective action. Once for immediate hospitalization for life saving surgery.

Dr. Kosa listened, asked questions, and took his time in hearing my story. He suggested alternatives but not before outlining all of the other considerations with my condition.

Dr. Kosa has given me my life back. After 4 years and no changes with an old neurologist, I finally decided to make the change. In ONE appointment he gave me the tools to majorly decrease my migraines. He is thorough, kind, he LISTENS to the patient and has wonderful staff.

Dr. Kosa is by far the kindest, most knowledgeable doc I have ever had. I have seen him for chronic migraines. I like him so much that I followed him from Research to NKC Hospital. He has been extremely helpful. I highly recommend him!

After 2.5 years of daily pain, hundreds of thousands of dollars wasted, and NUMEROUS times hearing doctors say “everything looks normal, try this prescription”, Dr. Kosa actually listened and gave me an accurate diagnosis, without a single lab, in 30 minutes. I am midway through my third treatment, have 3- 4 pain free days per week, and continue to get even better with time. Also, Dr. Kosa’s caring demeanor unknowingly “treated” the hopeless feeling that other doctors had created.

Dr. Kosa is great. No issues. Don't call during lunch trying to leave a message with the answering service as they don't take messages? Wife in hospital, but Amanda wouldn't take a message and told me to call back... really? Great doctor, bad answering service.

Dr. Kosa is friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and thorough. He spends plenty of time with you and makes you feel very at ease. It was so nice to leave a doctor's office in better spirits than when I came in. It was almost surreal because, as everyone knows, that is very rare. He genuinely cares about your health and comfort. At one point, I found myself thinking, is he really this nice? I'm not used to this! He's letting me talk, and he's really listening!

Dr. Kosa moved to a different area many years ago, and I searched him down because he was the best Neurologist I have ever had!! He is the only doctor out of many that is interested and caring enough to get me the help I need to live longer.

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!

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.
