About Robert J. Cosentino, MD

  • Dr. "Cos" enjoys reading (alternating American history/biographies with contemporary fiction), playing golf "not often or not well enough to suit me," he says), and flyfishing in the mountains when he can.

I've been practicing Obstetrics and Gynecology for a long time, and I still really enjoy interacting with patients and families. Having a mutually trusting relationship and sharing life experiences with my patients is why I do what I do.

4.8out of 5
  • December 1, 2022

    Dr Robert Cosentino was very professional and thorough along with excellent communication concerning my health needs.

  • November 28, 2022

    Dr. Cosentino has been my dr for almost 40 years. He has been there to oversee my gynecological health, sure...but he has also been like a friend and an advisor. He has given me guidance, pep talks, a hand on the shoulder for comfort, the faith that I could tackle a health problem, the understanding of what I was dealing with. He's easy to talk to, easy to understand, and he listens. I'm so very thankful for all the years of wonderful care he's given me. I'm so very lucky to be his patient.

    It felt a little rushed but I know the Dr is busy. I definitely got the impression that Dr C understands my concerns. He presented helpful options.
