Very pleased with Dr. Acosta. She treats you with respect and takes time to explain medical conditions and possible treatments In an understandable way. She answers questions plainly - in a way you can understand.

Dr. Acosta is always so friendly. Today she even explained what she was doing to my 10 year old son how my spinal tap was going to be. When we got in the car, he said it was so cool that my doctor let him help with math problems.
