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.........

Great guy - explained everything to me in great detail - very easy to deal with, and I had a great deal of confidence in his ability to treat me - came highly recommended by my oncologist and now I see why - would absolutely recommend him to others if you need a great GI doc

Dr. Kosmala comes highly recommended by my general doctor and my surgeon, but it is apparently not uncommon knowledge that the office can be very difficult to deal with. I have personally decided to leave this doctor after working with him through my surgery and trying to schedule my second follow up with these people. My favorite experience with them was complaining that I wasn't getting calls back on an appointment pre-surgery and the woman stressed that I was a liar. I'm moving on.
