I feel Like Dr. Koutsos really cares and knows what he is doing. i saw another doctor last year that ran some tests and didnt find anything so he just dismissed me. I feel like Dr. K really wants to get to the root of the problem and his staff is really nice too.it is so hard to find a good doctor with good staff members that care these days.

It was okay. The front desk people constantly told to hold on and cut me off mid sentence. They don't do blood work in their office, which I found shocking, and wanted me to walk to a Quest Diagnostic to take blood work. The Quest Lab was filthy and I just left. Dr seemed kind, overall experience could've been way better. Dont think i'll stay with this office.

I must have been one of the later appointments in the day. The doctor came in after moving his car and treated me in street clothes. The entire consultation felt quite rushed and it was clear he and the office staff were eager to leave.

The overall experience was positive. Dr. Koutsos is very kind and a good listener. The office, however, was overcrowded (there are quite a few other doctors in the same space) and the flickering lights were not great on the eyes.

First and foremost I would like to thank ZocDoc for helping me find this amazing doctor! Dr Markos Koutsos is very professional and sweet. He is friendly, down to earth and treated me as if I were a long time patient. His diagnosis was accurate for the symptoms I have and the medication he prescribed me is helping me feel better, day by day. I am nothing but thankful to him and I am now going to make Dr Koutsos my primary care doctor. Thanks again ZocDoc! :)
