Very nice Dr. puts you at ease and has a great bedside manner. He took the time to explain the procedure I needed in full and it was very easy to understand.
Kind, welcoming, and informative staff. Dr. Koutsos made me feel comfortable and relaxed almost instantly; he has a very easygoing manner about him but is highly professional and takes the time to listen to patient concerns.
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.

The doctor was very thorough and helpful.
Dr. Markos Koutsos was a dream to see today. The wait was rather long but when I finally saw the doctor I was out of the door in 15 minutes. I would highly recommend Dr. Koutsos to everyone!
Great doc, caring and a good listener. Never tries to rush a patient through an assembly line.
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.
A really good doctor. Takes time to listen to his patients. Very thorough.
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.
Explained things very well and he scheduled all my follow-up appointments promptly
Dr Koutsos is undeniably a wonderful Doctor, taking the time to reassure and ensure the next steps are straightforward and efficient. With a perfect bedside manner, you are at complete ease. Highly recommend.
I was very satisfied

Great doctor. He take his time to explain things.
Very professional and knowledgeable. He took the time to answer all of my questions and was not rushed in any way. Nice office staff that assisted.
Strictly professional and speaks directly to the poit
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.
Got a good vibe from him. Will see him again.
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! :)
Excellent visit... wonderful Dr., with a great personality and makes you feel very comfortable.
Not only a great technical Doctor, but one of the nicest people you're likely to come across. I cannot recommend Dr Koutsos any stronger.
Genuinely cared about what I had to say, addressed my concerns, and immediately scheduled tests to figure out what is wrong. Very comforting.
He was a great doctor easy to understand would highly recommend him.
A great doctor!
I felt that Dr Koutsos was genuinely interested in my symptoms and asked questions to gain a better understanding of my experience and was detailed in next steps unlike other doctors who seem disinterested and rush you out of the office, I am looking forward to continuing to with with Dr Koutsos.
Dr. Koutsos is a very caring professional. He makes every effort to make you well.
It was great. It was my first time there and saw me for a general sickness issue but for future reference, is is focusing on gastro and liver issues. His wife is also a general practitioner and I will be seeing her for my future General pcp visits
Very professional and good Doctor
As always, caring and compassionate, and finding answers.
Great office. Great doctor. Very short wait to see the doctor. It couldn't have went any smoother. Thank you.
Dr. Koutsos is a very professional and friendly physician. I would highly recommend him. He will make you well again.
Great experience. Took me on time & right away. Dr. was professional, kind & easy to talk to. Got my first B12 shot. He is sending me to Quest for all routine bloodwork etc. so after results we'll make a plan. I felt cared for ..which is how its supposed to be. He said he would fix me up.. So far, so good!
From his secretary to the DR EXCELLENT
Dr. Koutsos is a very caring professional that will take the time to listen to your issues and do everything he can to make you better again. He has taken care of my entire family for years.
I always find Dr. Koutsos and his staff to be friendly, mannerly and proficient. No matter how I feel when I enter the office the warm greetings and the care given always cheer me up. Great doctor, great personality.
My husband and I have both been using Dr. Koutsos for several years. He has always been very thorough both with his care and his explanations. He is very professional but also very pleasant. He does not make you feel rushed but instead takes the time to answer all questions. He takes his appointments promptly (we were a little early and he took us prior to the scheduled appointment time)j. We highly recommend Dr. Koutsos.
He has a great bed side manner and always knows what is wrong and treats it correctly I would highly recommend Dr Koutsos
He's amazing and kind. Cares about the patient and not about how much money he can get from your insurance.
Very knowledgeable and co operative
MY HUSBAND & I FELT WE DID NOT FEEL SATISFIED WITH THE VISIT. HE WAS NOT THE DR. WE WERE LOOKING FOR AND HE NOT RECOMMEND A PHYSICIAN WE CAN GO TOO. LAST BUT NOT LEAST ON THE WEB IT SHOULD INDICATE THAT DR MAROS KOUTSOS IS NOT TAKING ANY NEW PATIENT FOR PRIMARY CARE
Highly recommend him. We found our new doctor
Very friendly, professional and easy going.
Very informative and helpful! I was feeling very sick and not making sense with a sinus infection, and he was very helpful.
Dr.Koutsos, provided detailed information leaving me feeling well informed and reassured. He's a doctor in the true sense of the word treating his patients organically.
My visit with Dr.Markos was great ! He is very professional and really takes care of his patients. The Medical Assistant was great also she was very polite and sweet .I recomend you to go visit this Dr.he is amazing !
It was a great visit
Nice attention and he is a real professional.
Wish there was more of a caring factor during my visits. I have been to the office a couple times and I've been thrown referrals or "come see me in two weeks" with no soild answers or real solutions. Just possibilties while my insurance is billed and co- pays are being paid. Definitely left feeling like I'm part of his means of income and nothing more.
I like Dr. Koutsos very much--he did my colonoscopy 3 years ago and will do my next one. Very easy to talk to, attentive, professional yet friendly. Highly recommend.
The waiting was short and the mannerism of all was the greatest.
Dr. Koutsos was welcoming and friendly. He was very patient with me and listened intently. I definitely will be returning to his practice.
My visit gave me great insight on my diagnosis and proposed treatment. The full cost of my treatment was broken down for me which gave me the insight that I needed for going forward. Dr. K is a gentleman whose mannerism gives credit to his profession. VB
Everything went perfect! A+
Save my life by telling me to go back to the hospital. Turned out my appendix had ruptured.
I went to this doctor for stomach discomfort that I had for weeks. As another reviewer said he did not take my blood pressure, weight, etc. He seemed to listen to my complaint but didn't ask many questions. He did a palpable examine and suggested I let him do an endoscopy. I did not. I was not in pain nor throwing up, no fever. Couldn't justify this invasive test. The medication he prescribed for me did very little to help my condition and I ultimately had to go see another doctor. I'm much better now.
Very pleased with both the doctor and the receptionist. Very friendly!!
Professional, thorough with blood work, helped me greatly with stomach issues.
Best doctor I've had in New York city. Was very intelligent and quick with answers to my ailments.
Made an appointment for my son with the intent of establishing a new patient/doctor relationship that my family could use. Koutsos was advertised as a general practioner. As the parent, I gave him a medical history of my son and when I asked if he would take height and weight and give a physical which was the full intent of this checkup, his response was you were here to discuss tonsils and you did not say you wanted a physical for your son. The message was clear: do not give a medical history and just get the physical performed. How ridculous. Unprofessional, arrogant, ignorant and rude. Save you insurance and time. Gwen A.
Dr. Koutsos is very thorough. He scheduled a procedure for me within 6 days of my initial visit. He listened to my concerns and made me feel at ease.
Dr. Koutsos makes every patient feel like he or she is the most important patient he has. He listens, he solves.
Very understanding and easy. To talk to
Never had a more helpful doctor in my life, he scheduled me a procedure less than a week away from the day I saw him (typical wait times can be up to two months). I left smiling and full of hope instead of the usual annoyance and feeling of robbery after co-pay I feel after most specialist appointments.
Very pleasant. Friendly office. Convenient location. Should advertise the cash/ check only for copayments.
very personable & helpful!
He is kind and understanding..
Office visit was short- no weight, height, blood pressure, etc taken. But he was very thorough in his lab test recommendations, and is easy to keep in touch with through email.
Dr. Koutsos was very caring and attentive.
very friendly and saw me within 5 minutes of my scheduled appointment
As soon as I walked in I was greeted with a warm welcome. The receptionist was very helpful to me when she tried to ensure that my medical insurance would cover the visit. Dr. Koutsos was very kind, professional and down to earth. I will definitely go again.
Excellent doctor, very nice person. I recommend for anyone.
Very professional, helpful and courteous, liked him a lot.
Very professional. Listened patiently. Did not rush. Took time to answer all my inquiries

Personable, knowledgeable and kind. I have referred my family, friends and patients to him!
Great lady at the front desk, very polite. Dr. Koutsos made me feel very comfortable. He is extremely nice and easy to talk to. My husband and I both use him as our primary now.
So happy to have found a great doctor i have been looking for one for a while. He is caring, takes his time to explain things to you, makes you feel comfortable and secure. I would highly recommend him to anyone. My husband is a real critic and he is extremely happy with Dr. Koutsos as well.

He was so kind and caring. I felt I was in very good hands. He currently does not take bank cards at his Manhattan office, so be sure to bring cash just in case.
Always takes however much time is needed to address my concerns.
If you need to read reviews, know that you cannot find a better, more caring doc.
I love Dr. Koutsos. I have not found a PCP I liked since moving to NYC 4 years ago, and now I finally have. He is patient, thoughtful, and I never feel like he is rushing me out the door. He takes my concerns seriously, and he seems to genuinely care about my well-being. His secretary is great as well. I definitely recommend him and his office on 86th.
This is a smart, caring doctor. He was superb & extremely helpful with my 87 year old mom. Also outstanding if you need a colonoscopy.
I feel confidant in his abilities.

Very professional and seem to care by talking with me.. Didn't feel rushed. He made me feel welcome..
Very professional and will answer all your questions.
The doctor appeared to me to be a pushing for invasive procedures that were not necessary. Overall the doctor was alright, just didn't take his advice.
No one at the reception when I first arrived.. Dr. Koutsos had to administer paperwork and whatnot. Generally a little disorganized, and no real follow-up or show of concern.
Very friendly and approachable.
Dr Koutsos was very friendly and understanding. He listened patiently and described things very clearly and thoroughly. He has a very cordial manner to him and I would definitely recommend him to others.
