Ratings for Dr. William M. Costigan
This Dr is a buffoon. Suspenders and all. I was kept waiting almost an hour to see him. When he did arrive he immediately launched into physically contorting me - no warning or explanations given - into several extreme and painful positions, I suppose to determine what my spine problem was. When he was done he explained for less than 5 mins what his plan is for me. He said I would hear from his office. I have heard nothing since.
After waiting an hour 40 minutes past the appointment time and hearing him pop into yet another examination (waiting) room I finally left. No idea if he is capable, but he is certainly all about maximizing his profit at the expense of his patients and that does not bear well on his objectivity on treatments.
I sent Dr. Costigan a patient of mine to be evaluated. She had suffered a traumatic injury some months ago, and an MRI revealed what was thought to be a fracture in a thoracic vertebra. My patient reported to me that his expertise, demeanor and care impressed her - and his handling of this difficult case impressed me to the point that I will not hesitate to recommend patients to him.

1/30/10 I initially saw Dr Costigan for a severe neck pain and terrible headaches. I had been told in 2002 that I would need neck surgery at some time in the future. Dr Costigan did not push the knife, he started with the option of epidurals and pain meds and anti-inflammatory's. After a while we opted for surgery and he is a wonderful surgeon, explaining everything very well and my recovery. I have had many lumbar back surgeries in the past and when I needed to attend to my low back pain again and remove old hardware he was there for me again. Another very sucessful surgery thanks to Dr. Costigan. He had medical representative come to my home to bring me special new devices for cold pain therapy along with special back braces. He really thought of my case when I was not around also. I would reccomend him for any surgery, he in very intellegent and always thinking. His nurse Rei was so helpful in the office and on the phone. They are a great team.
