Dr. Kotsanis knew he wanted to be a doctor since he was 3. The smell of ether at his uncle's surgical clinic hooked him on the mystique of medicine. Moving to the states as a teenager eager to experience the American dream, his family settled in Chicago, where he attended Austin High School and went to Northern Illinois University. He then returned to Greece for medical school at the University of Athens. After finishing medical school, he continued his specialty training in otolaryngology, head and neck surgery at Loyola University of Chicago which is when he met and married his wife and business partner Beverly. Beverly, the practice CEO, a Loyola graduate with an extensive business background, worked in government, insurance and education before tackling the business of medicine. Both Gus and Beverly are outside-the-box thinkers. They attribute this to being of Greek descent. After moving to Texas in 1983, Kotsanis began the practice of medicine quite conventionally, doing surgery and allergy treatments. Several years later he began to experience health problems. After extensive testing he was told nothing was wrong with him. But he was in pain, fatigued and experiencing severe gastrointestinal issues. So, he began to look for answers in less conventional places. This was before Google and the Internet. He had to find answers the old-fashioned way – books, journals and other sick people. His answer came in the form of animal stem cells in Mexico. At the same time, they realized that patients coming to them were more challenging. Treatments that worked before were no longer as effective. What was happening? This is when they widened their horizons and turned to other disciplines for answers. They first explored the world of nutritional treatments for digestive disorders. It made sense that if digestion breaks down, nutrients can't get where they're needed and a cascade of deterioration begins. At this point they incorporated clinical trials and research into the practice. Thus began a long Kotsanis tradition of translational medicine. Together they created a medical practice that delivers health care that is customized to each person. Their method in a nutshell is: Listen to the patient's goals Draw them a roadmap and give them options on how to get there Partner with them to help them stay focused In 2011 they expanded their physical facility to accommodate the educational part of their mission. Kotsanis Institute's monthly educational series, "Digging Deeper" offers subject experts sharing their knowledge during a one-hour gluten-free lunch. Kotsanis Institute would not be who they are today without the people that bring it to life. The staff gives the institute a relaxed family feel. Beverly Kotsanis says that the staff is her family and credits staff longevity with the fact that patients stay with the practice. Kotsanis Institute patients are 80% word-of-mouth referrals. In addition to the Kotsanis commitment to education, they serve on the Board of Directors and Medical Advisory Board of the Best Answer for Cancer Foundation. They also reach out to the Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake chambers and actively participate in the Leadership Colleyville program by sending key staff members for leadership training. Another key activity for the couple is educating elected officials on the emerging technologies that will influence the future of medicine. Sometimes this involves testifying in Austin before legislative committees or visiting legislators personally. Favorite pastimes include creating new recipes, traveling, reading, and catching up with family. The couple has two grown children, Andrew 31 and Katerina 24.
