Review for Joseph A. Costa, D.O.
Patient ReviewI appreciated the way the doctor listened to my issues before responding. He appeared thoughtful in his responses, and not treating me as part of a group of older men. He saw me as an individual.

Patient ReviewDoctor *refused* to listen to, or give credence to, my lived experience - and I assure you than any doctor, male or female, who has not personally lived a Transgender life... CANNOT understand what this is like. You can, and must, do better. Please feel free to ask; I do not mind risking offending you. If I am proven to be in error, then I will know more today than I knew yesterday and for so showing me, I will thank you. Unfortunately, doctors feel they know "everything" without considering individuals' experience and knowledge of themselves. This is not proper medical care. I say these things for you to be able to provide higher quality treatment for future patients.
Review for Joseph A. Costa, D.O.
Patient ReviewDr. Costa very laid back didn't seem to rush visit just didn't take much time with me. In the event that medication/exercises do not work, surgery may be necessary. Non invasive surgery , In one day and out. Recovery about 2 weeks.
