I have been very pleased with the visits I have had with Dr. Kossman. He is very thorough in his explanations about my medical condition and is very thoughtful about my concerns and questions.

Simply the best there is. Dr. Kossman is the most respected oncologist in San Diego. The vast awards and recognition that he has received is incredible. His bedside manner with my grandfather was incredible and my family was incredibly appreciative during this difficulty in our lives. My grandfather's internist recommended Dr. Kossman as the physician that he would have care for him if he had cancer. That told us all that we needed.

I would not recommend this man to to care for your cancer needs, our experience was horrible and trust cannot be established with this doctor.

Dr Kossman makes you feel at ease at all times. Finding out that you have cancer is hard enough, but he explains everything and does not rush you in anyway. I came in with my list and we went thru it one by one.
