My second year with her practice. Easy drive into Friendship office. Secure parking $3.00. I was seen in a timely manner and Dr. Costa does a very through screening. She and her staff are quite pleasant to talk to and I love that I can schedule my next yearly appointment at the end of my visit. Highly recommend.

I have been going to this practice for years. Due to an insurance change, I can't go there any more. I went to have, what was said to be hyperkeratosis on my palm, looked at. A very expensive cream was prescribed, which burned terribly. If it is not burning, it is terribly itxhy. I still can't get it back to baseline. I will need to make an appointment with another dermatologist because of insurance change. I hope someone has.better success getting it resolved.

Dr Costa is very easy to understand and listens to you when you speak. She also doesn't make you feel that she is in a big rush to get out of the office.
