Patient Comments (2)
in Milford, CT |
I was treated in a very unprofessional matter, 4 days before my surgical procedure which was scheduled 5 weeks in advance, I received a phone call stating, "the physicians assistant will not make it from vacation in time to perform the procedure" and that I would have to pick a different day, I cannot believe they would treat a patient like that. They do not take consideration that not only I but my wife had to take time off of work in advance to them extending a vacation is more important.
in Naugatuck, CT |
I have never met another doctor who even comes close to Dr. Komninakas as far as skill, patient friendliness. I had 2 other doctors tell me they could not replace my knees because I was too heavy for the surgery. Dr. Komninakas assured me he could and would replace both my knees, and he did...Perfectly!!! Thank You Doctor Komninakas!
