15/03/14 2 2 3 5 Dr. D. is very knowledgeable, but he can be moody and arrogant. He does not like to be contradicted. I will not recommend him for this reason. I need to trust my physician to feel comfortable. Most Drs do not understand that they have to take the time to explain why their diagnostic is correct. It seems to me they are more interested to see more patients and just make more money.

06/01/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. D had the unenvyable task of advising me I had Prostate Cancer in January of 2013, and that my options were somewhat limited. In March he performed radical prostatectomy surgery, and although there were some post surgery complications his compassion and professional care were truly remarkable. Thank you Dr. D.

24/05/13 4 4 4 4 He recently treated my partner for a kidney stone and then a stent was placed for 3 days. I think he needs to understand the pain that this causes when the stent is in place and to provide pain medication to the patient after surgery and until the stent has been removed. We asked after the surgery about something for the pain and we were advised that the doctor said there wouldn't really be any pain and he was not prescribing something. Obviously he has never had a stent! Other than this all else went well.  Respond

18/09/12 5 5 5 5 Dr D has been treating me for bladder cancer for 5 years now. He is kind, caring and knowledgable. I have complete confidence in him and continue to see him for followup even though I have moved away - he's worth the drive. He knows when to be funny and when to be serious. Best doctor I've ever had.  Respond

22/10/09 2 2 5 5 I saw Dr. D back a few years for a large kidney stone that was stuck in my ureter. I had to have surgery to have it broken down before it could be removed. I also had to have a stint inserted. Two days after the surgery, the stint string came off and when I called this office begging to speak with him because I was in so much pain, I was told this was normal. 6 Weeks later, I finally got in to see him and lived in pain the entire time and it was discovered that the stint was still in place and the stone never was dislodged and that was why I was having all the pain. I was then rushed to x-ray and eventually had it removed. What an event that I would never want to live through again. I liked Dr. D but his staff there were very insensative and made me feel as if I was a burdon to their office!!I had called several times in pain and was told that what I was feeling was normal! I think his staff should get a heart and start to listen to the patients.  Respond

13/01/09 4 5 3 5 I was disappointed that Dr. D discharged me from his care because I sought another opinion to help me make a decision on my medical problem. I understand he is much in demand with a busy practice, but felt I should be respected for my thoroughness in research so I could make an informed decision about the treatment for a life-threatening disease. Still, that cannot wipeout the good that he did for me with his expertise. I believe he is an epert in his specialty and would not hesitate to go to him in the future. I would just spend some time growing a thisker skin.  Respond

16/01/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. D. treated my father during his fight with prostate cancer. Unfortunately, he succumbed to his illness 9 months ago, and although he was with Dr. D. for a short time (he was being treated at TGH prior), he made my father feel so well taken care of. He spoke in italian so that my father could understand everything, which is comforting in itself. I thank Dr. DiCostanzo for his kindness and compassion during my father's visits and also to his staff for all their empathy during a very hard time. On a lighter note, he also snipped (vasectomy) a few members of our family, including my husband! Keep up the good work! Luciana Crupi  Respond

14/01/07 4 5 5 Dr D did surgery on my infant son to descend a testicle, and also did my husband's vasectomy. We were all pleased with his work :). He was very thorough in examinations and offerring a ton of information to us on both procedures. Very helpful and knowledgeable, very too the point. He could be a little friendlier, but as a doctor, he knows his stuff!  Respond
