Kurtis Kostan, MD, is a board-certified internal medicine physician at UT Health East Texas Physicians on Three Lake Parkway in Tyler who believes in treating the patient and not just the symptoms. “My goal is to get to know each patient, education them on how to live a healthy lifestyle and truly listen to any of their concerns. Each patient should feel their concerns are important and understand the significance of being proactive in their healthcare.”
Dr. Kostan has been a hospitalist for several years where he has gained experience treating a wide range of medical conditions. However, he missed having the ability to create long-lasting relationships with his patients. As a result, he is passionate about providing comprehensive healthcare to patients and building relationships based on trust.
“As a primary care physician, I am particularly interested in helping patients with sports-related injuries, as well as patients with diabetic and metabolic disorders. These conditions require complex problem-solving skills, and can greatly influence the quality of life,” Dr. Kostan said.
When not seeing patients, Dr. Kostan enjoys participating in outdoor activities with his family as well as playing fantasy football.
