Dr. Costa the miracle worker!

Dr. Costa explains everything to you and makes sure that you understand. He takes every precaution before surgery and always greets you with a handshake and a smile. He gave me back a normal life. I wouldn't hesitate having he perform any surgery, if needed. My family and I have the utmost respect for him.

Love him but nurse is a problem

I absolutely love Dr Costa and the entire transplant team. He is so very kind and super intelligent. He is a great listener and has a huge heart. The only negative about this group is their nurse Shatina. She is rude, doesn’t return phone calls and lies. I get anxiety every time I have to speak with her. She speaks down to patients, says she will call you back and never does and acts like a bully. It took me almost 4 weeks to get a question answered about a concern I had. I would leave message after message (3-4 a week) with no calls returned from her. After this went on for almost 4 weeks, I purposely called the doctor on call over the weekend to ask my question and concerns which required some testing to be done and health problems were found. I received a nasty message from Shatina the Monday she returned to work. No patient should be treated or spoken to the way she does. Then she lied to the doctors and stated she had called me several times trying to reach me. She is a huge problem and has no empathy for patients that are so ill and in so much pain. She is so unprofessional and rude. I would recommend Dr Costa to any patient but then warn them about Shatina. He is a wonderful doctor

Dr Costa is top notch in my book!

Not only was he knowledgeable of my condition but he also took the time to truly listen to my story, concerns and questions, and respond to them as well as amy issues that arose postoperatively. His level of expertise is second to none and his demeanor truly exemplifies a man very dedicated to his craft and calling of taking care of others.
