As a doctor I’m very critical of other doctors. Dr Kokenes is what I would call a “doctor’s doctor.” First rate!

Dr Kokenes listens to me and has a great sense of humor. I’m so glad I switched over to this practice a year ago and they gave me an appointment with him.

Dr Kokenes is great. His scheduler, however, is inept. The incompetence in itself would be tolerable if it were not accompanied by a complete lack of contrition or empathy. I will not return to this practice.

I have been a dietitian for 20 years and worked with literally hundreds of doctors and I met Dr. K today as a patient and I think he is my favorite doctor ever! Wonderful sense of humor, explains things clearly, extremely knowledgeable, etc. If you need a GI doc...choose him!
