Have you seen Dr. Scott Kozak?
April 2nd, 2013Want a real old fashioned doc?
March 16th, 2013Lucky to have someone like Dr. Kozak in our community.
I have been a patient of Dr. Kozak since 2008. I left my previous Doctor because I always felt rushed during visits. Dr. Kozak is the total opposite, he takes the time to listen, and even follows up personally by phone when necessary. His staff is very personable and efficient. When I go to his office, I know I will see Dr Kozak, not a nurse who'se never met me and only glanced at my file before opening the door. I am glad to have someone like Dr. Kozak in our community.
March 5th, 2013Disappointed
I needed to have shoulder surgery done by one of the Dr.'s in Santa Barbara Select IPA (Dr. Kozak's group) and needed to select a new primary care physician within that group so I could be referred to the orthopedic specialist. I wish I had done my research a bit more before I selected Dr. Kozak. While he was very easy to get in and see and his staff was great, Dr. Kozak was very disappointing. He laughed off and scoffed at another Dr's diagnosis (that of an Ophthalmologist and Retina Specialist; Dr. Kozak practices family medicine) when I raised concerns about a reaction to medication, he seemed very disinterested in what was going on with me, seemed very unsure of his diagnosis and what medications he prescribed and to top it off, when respectfully questioned he flipped out and became very insulting and verbally abusive! Maybe he was having a bad couple of weeks or something but I expected much more from a Dr. His behavior was very childish and quite disturbing actually. I would definitely NOT recommend Dr. Kozak.

I would highly recommend Dr. Kozak to anyone! Friendliest staff, cleanest office, and extremely knowledgeable Doctor. He specializes in pretty much anything and everything! I always feel incredibly comfortable the minute I walk into his office. He is thorough and always follows up with any issue that he saw you for. My experience at his office is always very personable - just the way it should be when going to see your Doctor!

This is by far the best Doctor in town! When I first moved to Santa Barbara I had a hard time finding a Doctor that I felt comfortable with. A friend recommended Dr. Kozak and it was the best decision I have ever made! Over the past 3 years I have been to Dr. Kozak various times, and he knows what he is doing. His 2 assistants are amazing, and they always squeeze me in. The wait time is never more than 5 minutes, and I am always greeted by a friendly face. No matter what your health issue is, Dr. Kozak will find a solution. And if he cannot diagnose you immediately, then he will take the time to research to figure out the best way to treat you. He has also referred me to other specialists, such as eye doctor and chiropractor. Many times going to the Doctor is a terrible and dreadful experience, but going to his office, I feel comfort, care, and overall a personalized experience. I would recommend Dr. Kozak to anybody!
February 25th, 2011Great Doctor
I want to thank Dr. Scott Kozak and his staff for the excellent care I had when treated for a very painful and infected cyst on the back of my neck. This was an extremely bad infection that had spread through my neck and produced intense pain down my arm. Dr Kozak was kind enough to see me immediately and cultured the infection to find the correct antibody for this unusual bacterium.Additionally, he did an exacting procedure by surgically inserting a drain. He monitored and changed my dressings for the next eight days. I could not ask for a more talented, caring and concerned physician.

Terrible doctor he very unhelpful with everything if you want to see a specialist go to a different DR he wont give you a referral. Extremely condescending and rude. God help you if you have a medical condition this guy wont help you. This Dr has the audacity to pat you on the back and tell you to hang in there. Please don't touch your patients unless it is medically necessary.

I found Dr Kozak to be extremely professional, concerned about his patients and respectful at all times. I came to him with a very serious physical complaint and he put a lot of energy into finding out what was causing my symptoms and clarified what I needed to do. He explained to me exactly what tests were necessary and helped me through a difficult time in my life. He answered my questions and calmed my fears. He is obviously extremely knowledgeable and concerned about getting people as healthy as possible. I was so happy with my care that I brought him and his staff some homemade baked cookies just to say "thank you".
