My son was recently seen by Dr. Kosmala for an ulcerative colitis flare-up. What a terrific doctor! He followed up phone calls and enabled my son to begin to heal quickly from what had become a very debilitating illness. Thanks, Dr. Kosmala!

The staff is very unprofessional and rude. When trying to make an appointment the lady hanged up at me twice. I talked to the manager and she did the same. I decided to look for another Doctor because of this!

Se Kosmala explains in ways I understand & he takes his time & makes sure he answers any questions I may have. I was so nervous before my scope & he made sure I was relaxed & he was so nice when he did my scopes at Palos. I would highly recommend Dr Kosmala to my family & friends.........
