Thank you for taking such good care of my Mom and that pesky brain tumor! You were wonderful to her, and she felt very safe under your care. Her recovery has been amazing, thanks to your medical and surgical expertise.

I was impressed with Dr. Kokkino the 1st time I saw him. He told me I was not a surgical candidate because there was a high risk of post-op quadriplegia (but he didn't dictate that reason in his chart notes). The 2nd time I saw Dr. Kokkino, he spent the whole appointment yelling at me about my smoking & A1C but refused to tell me the reason he was NOW needing to perform surgery on me (& he dictated that I wasn't a surgical candidate because I didn't take my health seriously). I finally called his office to specifically ask him the reason I was NOW needing to have surgery, in spite of the high risk of post-op quadriplegia. The 3rd time I tried to make an appointment with Dr. Kokkino, he pawned me off on his NP; he wouldn't 'fit' me into his schedule.

I would highly recommend Dr. Kokkino! He is very professional, and has your best interest at heart. He listened to everything I had to say, he asked me questions before he diagnosed. I would truly trust my life in his hands! Thank You!

We have found Dr. Kokkino to be down to earth, compassionate, understanding and very professional. He frankly answers our questions and helps us get a vision of our future. I had Gamma Knife surgery last summer and continue to improve at every follow up appointment.

Kokinno was quite personable and answered all my questions fully. I just wish doctors could be more forthcoming; they say one thing to your doctor, but then another, (or leave salient facts outs), when speaking to you. All you docs, just be real!

I would just like to say Dr. Kokkino was concerned and compassionate about my condition and acted quickly to form a plan to remove my pituitary gland tumor ASAP. He knew what he was doing and in less than a month I was in Surgery. He did a outstanding job, I am healthy, happy and recovering quickly. I recommend Dr. Kikkino to anyone who needs neurosurgery and family. I sincerely appreciate everything he did for me! Thank you so very Much, Sushila & Andrew Chand

I was referred to this doctor for a second opinion about my back surgery, and the response I received was "we are planning out for at least six months and we just don't have time to entertain second opinions." At this office they are careless in their approach to the needs of others and I can't justify the rudeness and disrespect applied to my referral. I would not suggest using this office for ANYTHING.

Recently diagnosed with a brain tumor, I was referred to Dr. Kokkino. It was like pulling teeth to get an appointment, and every time I called there was some excuse "Dr. needs to review chart, Dr. is out, PA needs to review chart, etc., etc." By the time I finally got a call from his office to schedule, I had a consult with another surgeon and I was told Dr. Kokkino wouldn't treat patients seeking 2nd opinions!

Extremely rude, arrogant and condescending. I see many specialists and he is unprofessional and unsympathetic as I have ever come across. Thankfully, I have a much kinder surgeon who actually treats people with dignity. I left his office in tears, and I don't cry easily. Horrible experience.

I had back surgery January 11, 2016 with excellent results. Would recommend Dr. Kokkino. It takes time to get an appointment with him because he is very busy. When you are one of the best, that's what happens. His skills are excellent and as his patient, i recommend you follow directions to have a great outcome.

I would never recommend this office to anyone. After being referred by my orthopedic surgeon to Dr. Kokkino, I am still waiting,after several weeks, for an appointment and am giving sundry excuses for this (doctor has not yet reviewed the chart, he is out of the office, etc.) It is an abysmal lack of courtesy to the referring physician or to a patient in pain.
