About Dr. Cossu

Philosophy of care

I want to not only provide high quality care for you, but also develop a long-lasting relationship with you and your family. I always treat you as a human being with an ailment, not a patient number, room number or disease process. I always approach the management of my patients with the thought as to what I would want if this was my mother or father, or wife, or children.

Why I entered medicine

During my high school years, my sister fell ill with spinal cord cancer and spent the better part of 2.5 years hospitalized at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. We, being a small family, spent day and night in the hospital with her. It was during this time that I truly became enthralled with the field of medicine. Since I would sleep nights and spent my weekends there, the residents became my friends and began taking me on my rounds and teaching me. This provided the first exposure to practice of medicine. I then went on to medical school and obtained a residency at Columbia University. It was there that I met a wonderful teacher and mentor, Dr. Glenda Garvey, who in turn referred me to Dr. Mark Josephson to learn the field of electrophysiology. I could not have asked for a better education and owe my knowledge of electrophysiology to Dr. Josephson.

Community involvement

I have participated in several medical mission trips to South Africa, Haiti and Nicaragua.

Personal interests

I enjoy music and soccer.

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.
