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!
