Suffolk County, NY |
I has been under the care of 4 different OBGYN's before going to Dr. Kofinas for a second opinion, when another specialist had dismissed my 5.5 week pregnancy as a loss and recommended a D/C. That fetus is now a smart and healthy 6 year old. I have no doubt that the treatment I received saved a life. Dr. Kofinas also took care of me during my latest pregnancy, where I had multiple complications. I was followed very closely and treatment adjusted as needed - resulting in another wonderful child.
Lindenhurst, NY |
That staff is horribly rude and the wait can be up to two hrs- then you get to see Alexander Kofinas, bad attitude, and pompous demeanor.
Garden City, NY |
This doctor put me on Lovenox shots when I didn't need them. All of the money all of the drugs- for what?
in Franklin Square, NY |
Dr Kofinas is a great doctor! He has alot of knowledge. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have been able to have 2 kids today. His staff is amazing and tend to your every need. They are also very friendly. I love his office and definitely refer any of my friends there.
Astoria, NY |
Dr. Alexander Kofinas and his staff are some of the most knowledgeable, caring and compassionate offices out there. From the start everyone in his office was always caring, professional and helpful. I had numerous issues with my first pregnancy and I felt safe in his care. There were issues my OB/GYN didn't spot that he was able to see and diagnose. Without Dr. Kofinas there's no way I would have given birth to my beautiful baby girl. I thank them everyday for helping me during that time.

In it for the money.
in Commack, NY |
Horrible horrible horrible experience! No bedside manner! Quick to send for tests and all of his patients seem to have the same "issues" which he pretends he's fixing.
Levittown, NY |
Dr. Alexander D. Kofinas should be ashamed. He should be ashamed of how he treats his patients. He should be ashamed of his lack of knowledge. He should be ashamed of his scam for money. He should be ashamed to force unnecessary testing. Absolutely horrible.
Brooklyn, NY |
This place is like a factory. Dr Kofinas is arrogant and has no bedside manner. Most times me makes you feel stupid for asking questions and is not compassionate at all. He seems to be knowledgable, but his receptionist are nasty as well.
in Long Island City, NY |
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.
in New York, NY |
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!
