Dr Costa and his staff are AWESOME. In fact, he is such a wonderful doctor that when I moved from the area a few years back, I did NOT switch doctors. I drive 45 minutes, one way, to see him for my health care needs. The appointments are easy to make, and there is very little waiting after check in. The office is bright and clean with lots of reading materials. Bathroom is always fresh and clean as well. As far as the staff, the nurses could not be nicer and the desk staff are very polite and easygoing. Dr Costa goes above and beyond to provide one on one care and takes the time to listen and react appropriately to all of your concerns. You are not just a number, you are a person. I never leave his office with unanswered questions or doubts. Very worth the drive!
Dr. Costa is a well-informed general practitioner whose knowledge crosses over many specialty areas of medicine. I feel confident in his advice. He takes the time to listen to me. He is both patient and thoughtful. The downside of this attentiveness is a longer waiting period for a scheduled appointment than in some other offices. While I wish that would change, it is worth the inconvenience to have a thorough, interactive physician. Dr. Costa's staff are both friendly and efficient.
I have two objections, which are not related to Dr. Costa's care but, I think, a result of Roper internal practices: (1) I have never been referred to a specialist outside of the Roper network, although I believe there may have been more appropriate referrals outside of Roper; and (2) Future appointments with referred specialists are scheduled between the two medical offices, with no input from the patient, resulting in appointments which may need to be cancelled. Despite this, I would highly recommend Dr. Costa.
