    Dr. Kofinas is one of the best. He was able to quickly diagnose my issues and treat me accordingly. He's extremely knowledgable in the field of MFM. The staff is also amazing and very expierenced. If you have any issues with pregnancy Dr. Kofinas WILL help you have a healthy baby.
    Please read through the reviews and you will see something in common with the poor reviews. The man is a con artist. He diagnoses woman with the same issues, forced them into excessive and unecessary testing and then onto meds. The man endangered my life and the life of my child during my first trimester. He is heartless and unprofessional.

    Horrible bedside manner!!!! The worst I have ever seen! Sent me for unnecessary testing, put me on Lovenox shots when I didn't need it! This man shouldn't be allowed to practice!

    Kofinas Perinatal met, and far exceeded our expectations. From the moment we entered the immaculate office we were treated with respect and compassion. All of the sonographers were top notch. State of the art ultrasound machines are used and the exams are so detailed. Most importantly, Dr. Kofinas' bedside manner and attention to detail is unparalleled. We never felt rushed and he always was accessible. Being under the care of Dr. Kofinas put us at ease during the entire pregnancy.
    Dr Alexander Kofinas should have his liscense to practice medicine revoked! The man told me I was pregnant with twins and that one baby was stuck in my tube. Hastily rushed me off to emergency surgery! He made me drive to the emergency room in tears- yelling at me and saying I would die if I didn't remove the stick baby. I wake up from the surgery to find out her was wrong. The man misdiagnosed me. Put me through unnecessary surgery during my pregnancy and still demanded payment!
