Empethetic

Dr. Cost is empathetic and took obvious pleasure in relieving my pain. He communicates very effectively - saying a lot with few words and with clear English. He has a relaxed and skilled bedside manner. I could tell that he loved doing the complicated procedure on me because it worked and gave full relief. He likes helping people.

Five Stars

Dr.Cost is very caring and easy to talk with about personal and medical concerns no matter how sensitive. He is very thorough, competent, and there is continuity in the Dr/Pt relationship. Takes time with you to inform and support as needed and does not confine himself to just the immediate problem at hand. His skills are evident and he is surgically very special; also diagnostically thorough and assuring of access as needed. He knows his patients well and ones I have talked with also feel affection and gratitude for him.
