he's awesomeMay 04,2017
we discussed my ongoing problems with my knees. Doctor Kosty really listens and gave me good information and treatment.May 09,2017
I explained my problems to him. He had reviewed the x-rays that had been taken and discussed my medical "problem" and previous treatment for the hand problem. He explained possible courses of treatment and the +es and -es of the options for treatment. He gave me recommendations for treatment and I went with his suggestions. They appear to be working but a more aggressive action may be need in the future.May 05,2017
Very pleased with this provider.May 25,2017
