About Dr. Costacurta

Philosophy of care

I always try to do what is in the best interest of the patient. As my patient, I believe you should help direct your care. I only order testing that I believe will have an impact on the future management your health and any conditions. I believe the patient-doctor relationship is of upmost importance.

Why I entered medicine

I have always enjoyed and had a strong interest in the sciences, and the field of medicine was a natural extension of this. Medicine allows me to help patients both through medicines and procedures as well as emotionally or spiritually. There is great joy in seeing someone recover from an illness and knowing I was a part of that.

Community involvement

I am a member of the Board of Directors of Two Rivers Health and Wellness Foundation. This is a nonprofit foundation dedicated to providing funding to improve the health and well-being of community residents.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
