When I interviewed you for the job of being our family doctor in 1991, I told you we wanted a doctor to outlive us. So far, you are doing a great job caring for us, so it’s looking as if you will have to practice for at least another 20 years. Herb may be gone by then (110) but I will only be 102. Keep up the good work. 💉🌡🤧🤒😷🍾❤️

He is the best the medical profession can offer.

Then, I developed vocal nodules from all the coughing that the thrush caused. Dr Costa listened to my complaints very carefully, and removed all the steroid meds which finally allowed my thrush to clear and the resultant nodules. Dr Costa is wonderful at… See more
My family had been wit the same doctor for 20+ years until he retired and when that happened we found ourselves lost.
