Specialties

Dr. Luis J Acosta has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Everyone in this office is wonderful except for the RN. She is very very rude. Does not listen to anything.

We had to wait awhile before we were called back but he took as much time as we needed and didn't rush us, definitely worth the wait! He did apologize for keeping us waiting, so I'm sure he was spending time with the patient before us. Dr. Acosta is awesome! He is very caring and takes time to answer your questions and explain in a way you can understand. Would absolutely recommend him.

He is a true life-saver

For well Over a year & half, we were basically told my hubby had GERD. That's why we ended up in the ER. Dr. Acosta happened to be in the ER that fateful night. (3.5yrs ago). He didn't take what all the other doctors we had seen in last few months To sway his opinion. Instead he did a thorough exam and upper GI scope. He found a very large, very rare and VERY aggressive cancerous mass. This particular cancer when detected carries not great odds of survival. We have been with Dr.Acosta ever since, this is several times a year for screening. I would put mine or any of my loved one's(& I have!), in his hands. My second point is to those that have issue with having to wait a little. Yes, sometimes you may have to wait a bit for your appointment either at the hospital or in the office. He does try hard to keep the schedule close to as planned. But when it doesn't work out that way, It's not because he's having social hour or something. So please try to put yourself in the shoes of the patient he is with that might be making your appointment a little late. Dr.Acosta is very thorough, but this is to your benefit! And yes, sometimes he has to deliver bad news. That is not the time for him to rush. Dr Acosta WILL be there for you and your family. The best doctor we have met. And I am a RN. And we both have lots of docs for different alignments.
