Ratings for Dr. Valeria I. Kozak
Dr. Kozak have been my special needs son's pediatrician for 10 years. From day one we met with her we felt her passion and concern for the child. She has gone well above and beyond just being a doctor. She educates the parents and help you to find resources. Dr. Kozak has made a major role in my son's well being through out the past 10 years and we constantly recommend her to all the families we know. I also have to add the her staff are the same as her, they are there to help and take care of their patients with no exception. Highly recommend her and encourage others to do the same.
Dr. Kozak has wonderful bedside manner. She listens and is always available by phone at any time of the 24 hour day! Her nurses are great and they follow through with their promise to call back. I'm disappointed with the wait time (too many times we wait 45 minutes in the waiting room)Her philosophies are a bit different than our old doctor. It's not wrong or right, just different. For example, she recommended me to wait to put my son in kindergarten just because he was a late spring birthday. I do not agree with that and believe the cut-off dates are there for a purpose and he has been perfectly happy and normal in kinder. She also recommended my 2 year old to start speech therapy. My friends did start thir kids early and are happy, but I am glad I waited. At pre-school's speech and hearing test in pre-schoo, they said my child was normal and did not need therapy and it was developmental.
Dr Kozak was recommended to us from one of our family members. We recently moved to OC from the south bay and i have to say that we already love her! She takes the time to talk to us, answer our questions and have a great contact with our son. She does not see us as a # and really build on the relationship factor with her patients. I know she will be our son's pediatrician for a very long time!
We love Dr. Kozak! After our pediatrician moved out of state and sold his practice to her, we were initially skeptical, but we were "sold" on her the first visit. She is very thorough, takes her time, listens patiently and answers thoroughly; she never feels like your "just a number". In addition, her office is clean, fun and modern. Her staff are professional and good with the kids as well. We never have to wait long, and can get in the same day to see her if the kids are sick. Plus, we can call her anytime and she will respond back without delay and with genuine concern. Highly recommend!
We have been with Dr. Kozak for 5 years - She genuinely cares for her little clientele and the parents. Her diagnostic skills are tremendous, and I notice that she treats the whole person rather than only remaining focused on the presenting symptom. On more than a few occasions, she has called to check on my sons or has encouraged us to call her. She returns calls, is almost always on time, has a great office staff, She loves her work and it shows, We are moving out of state and are heartbroken to lose this wonderful doctor.
Dr. Kozak was my pediatric doctor and after I turned 18 moved onto to a family practice doctor. However, I could never find another doctor that took care of me like Dr. Kozak did. Now, I am 22 and back w/ Dr. Kozak even though her specialty is pediatrics. She and her office staff ALWAYS treat me like family. Dr. Kozak is amazing at what she does and truly cares about her patients well being.
Dr. Kozak is very knowledgable and responsive. She loves what she does and it shows in her caring ways and how she goes above and beyond what most doctors would do. Great follow up and accessibility. She's treated our 3 kids for several years now. One has had many health issues. We would not go anywhere else. Thanks Dr. Kozak!
My doctor was very sick and saw a different doctor 2x that same week. Then the 3th day she saw DR. Kozak and she advised my daughter was sick with pneumonia and gave her the proper treatment/meds and my daughter got better. If it was not for Dr. Kozak my daughter would have ended in the hospital. I love Dr. Kozak she is very excellent pediatrician. I would not trust my daughter going anywhere else.
Ella es el angel guardian de mis 2 hijos porque siempre ha estado ahi, aun tomando de su tiempo para ayudarnos con problemas que hemos tenido con mi hijo mayor sabemos que podemos contar con ella siempre, yo le agradezco a Dios que la haya puesto en nuestro camino y siempre que la veo se lo digo por eso quise escribiendo esto para que otras personas sepan lo que ella hace por sus pacientes
