Dr. Kostarellis is interested in general family medicine, pediatrics, women’s health, breastfeeding promotion and assistance, integrative medicine/lifestyle medicine, palliative/hospice care, and health care advocacy.

She has an interest in outpatient procedures, such as IUD placement, Nexplanon placement, skin biopsies, joint injections, and wart removals.
