I have seen Kosek a couple of different times. I was reffered to him by my neurologist after my 4th spinal surgery. The plan was to have him assess and perform a series of targetted nerve injections. I went with the understanding that this man would be on the same page as the surgeon who sent me. After the initial asessment and going over MRI imaging and such, he explained in detail how he would proceed with a good anti depressant medication because I was just seeking attention. He began to raise his voice and tell me that he could not help me. He actually did write me a prescription for Prozac. I still have it and will gladly prove this mans arrogance and baffoonary. I laughed so much at him while he yelled at me that I left in mord pain than when I arrived. My second visit consisted of him saying that he did not remember anything of the sort and wanted to schedule an L-5 injection. Needless to say, I passed on that one.

Do not go to this man! He is disrespectful and very harmful. I had my second visit today and he was a complete creep and due to legal issues I cant say anymore . Always record your visits you cannot trust this guy with anything.I can't rate him a -10 on this rating system above so the -10 is correct

This guy is hard to follow, disrespectful, unwilling to take a patient at their word. He is friendly at first but then becomes more and more insensitive and ruthless. He, unlike most other pain management doctors, forgets that the few minutes spent in that exam room will greatly affect all of the hours and days spent outside of that place. Don't dare have any problems with meds because this guy will tell you to kick rocks and get lost.

dont bother show details dont bother
by gail on Aug 21st, 2013

The most memorable about this appt was the total lack of treatment for my son who has a broken back. Excersize really? Gotta be able to get out of bed first. No other recommendation? Nothing for the pain? Nothing is what he got. Not even asprin. We didnt expect anything from this office and thats what we got.

Doing me a favor. show details Doing me a favor.

I met with Dr. Kosek 2 times and since that time all contact has been with PA's, lab and office assistant staff. Yearly random drug screening is much more frequent (2-3) times a year. I have never failed a drug screen and yet this has become an extra and ongoing expense. They made an error and my last appointment today had not been entered on their system. I had the appointment card which confirmed it was their error. I guess they feel that my time is not valuable. They could not fit me in because they were too busy. As a result I must now ration my drugs to make it until the appointment they rescheduled 7 days from the one they messed up. Do not use this Doctor and his staff if you want compassionate and respectful treatment from a staff that is courteous.

I received tremendous relief from his procedures. He was professional at our appointments. The doctor was able to project my MRI on a screen in the exam room. Then he went over my images in detail with me.

I have been seeing Dr Kosek for a few years now. He was recommended to me by a very good friend whose mother is a patient. He's patient and has a very calm demeanor. He always takes the time to explain things to me. I feel 100% confident in him. I have had injections in my neck by him ... I trust him. I have to say that he is the ONLY Dr. I will see in his office though. His staff is nice as well.

Dr. Kosek was recommended to me by another physician. I was able to make my first appt with him within a couple weeks of first contact, and he explained my condition, pointing out my problems on X-rays/MRI. He talks a softly, and seems a bit reserved, but I'm OK with him. If you have to get injections in your back, you need to let the staff know if you are tolerant of pain meds like I am so they can adjust that accordingly. I have recommended Dr. Kosek to others and will go back to him if needed.

Pain managment requires visits more often than every 4 or 5 weeks. Yes, that's right, I said 4 to 5 weeks!! He's too busy!!
