Dr. Costa is kind, thorough, efficient and explains all issues and treatment options completely. I have recommend her to a number of friends and family. I felt the medical assistant was frustrated by my declining a chart photo. I feel it would be a better patient experience if that interaction was less hostile.

My appointment was on May 7. My visit with Dr. Costa was very thorough. That is what I like and never had it before I started going to Dr. Costa. Thank you.

Dr. Costa has never given me the feeling that she is "rushed". She listens to me, encourages me to ask any questions I may need answered, and makes me feel as though I am her only patient! Rare qualities to find in a specialist.
