“Dr. Geoff is the BEST. I went in to have a fun “sun” spot looked at and a tetanus shot. When I was at my appointment I brought up two other things I needed taken care of and he said no problem because the following appointment after mine had cancelled. LOVE one stop service!!”   Veronica Wardlow

“I started using CostCare as my provider because they are preferred for my insurance and employer.  I was apprehensive at first as I didn’t want a doctor that just shoved their patients through.  My first experience was with Jenn Culp and I was pleasantly surprised.  She is very knowledgeable, thorough and has a great sense of humor.  My entire family are now patients as well. I have 2 teenage girls and one of them can be a bit overdramatic at times. Regardless of the situation, Jenn and all the other staff take it in stride and put a smile on her face before she leaves the office.  My husband, who avoids doctors like the plague, is now comfortable enough to call for an appointment himself.” Michelle Oberhofer
