Specialties

Dr. Peter S Kosek has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Awful & Heartless

I read the reviews and still gave Dr. kosak a try. Bad decision. It's not so much that I didn't like what he said as it is that this doctor had his mind made up before he even saw me. Didn't even look at MRI, either. He asked me questions but interrupted my answers, showing he really didn't care what I said. He was rude and mean. I can say ONE positive thing about him, he told me his treatment recommendation rather than cowardly having my PC tell me. I am going to do as he requested in other reviews he responded to and go back in and dicuss things with him. I am just curious if he is actually going to listen. Doubtful. If you have an appointment with Dr. Kosek please cancel for you and your family's quality of life. He will destroy your functionality and life quality in a keystroke if you are on pain medication. We are not the addicts but we are being punished while the addicts keep abusing and using. Wow!

HORRIBLE. DON'T BOTHER

He is an incredibly condescending man. Never once ever thought he would say I'm depressed an that's the course of my back pain. Oh, and that's because I don't socialize outside of my husband and kids after working 10 hour days. Horrible doctor and he cares less to really see what the issue really is.

This doctor has clearly given up. Goes through the motions - but didn’t see me - or hear me.

Rude and Terrible Dr

Would never recommend this man to anyone, the negative reviews he has should be taken at full value. He clearly has no consideration for patients suffering. Told me that volunteering would solve my chronic pain issues, total jerk. Recommended I stop both pain and anxiety medication, clearly had no consideration of my progress and improvement in life since starting these medications. Avoid this "dr" at all costs, the office holding my pain contract dropped me after this appointment with Dr. Kosek.
