I had to book a last minute appointment and Dr Koutsos was wonderful. I had a 3:15pm appointment but arrived early and saw me early. He listened carefully to my symptoms and made some helpful suggestions and provided me with samples.Started to feel better after a few hours. I’m very grateful. He also has a very nice staff.

Dr. Koutsos was kind, gentle, and listened well. While I’m uncertain if the treatment I received was the best approach (something nobody could really know under the circumstances; sometimes trial and error is necessary), I have no doubt as to Dr. Koutsos’ competence and professionalism.

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.

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 getto 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.
