Ratings for Dr. Joseph Costanzo
My family and I have been patients of Dr. Costanzo for many years. He is one of the most patient and knowledgeable internists that I have ever worked with. When there is an issue, he usually can figure out what the problem is within a short period of time. Even though he has a good idea what the issue may be, he will not take chances. He will make the referral to a specialist for follow up. H doesn't believe in the wait and see approach. I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Costanzo. He is a very special doctor and person.
I once saw a Kids in the Hall comedy skit where a doctor said that he really enjoyed his job because all he did was issue referrals, that he collected large sums for sending patients elsewhere. Well, Dr. C. reminds me of this doctor. I'd been to see him a few times and can tell you that all he did was send me elsewhere, even for things that quite honestly, he should have been able to handle himself. How do I know he should have been able to handle these things himself? Well, when I spoke to the doctors to whom he referred me, they came up with remarkably easy fixes (literally a band-aid in one case). Also, he never read my chart -- it's as if I'm a new patient every time I see him. Honestly, every time I leave his office, I feel as if I've wasted my time. I've since gone to another practice and have had much better experiences. Expectations are everything and maybe mine are too high but a doctor should do more than direct traffic, right?
