Dr. Kokko and his surgical staff have provided friendly and EXCELLENT care! I definitely recommend Dr. Kokko to my friends and family....in fact, my wife will be seeing Dr. Kokko in the not too distant future. Her trust in Dr. Kokko stems from his excellent and professional care of me during the past three surgeries he has performed on my hands.

Dr Kokko, MD was excellent in all that he did for me. I would gladly recommend him to everyone I know. His bed side manner was wonderful. I have had lots of surgery so, I was not up for anymore. But, he was outstanding to me. Thanks for being a great doctor. His staff was great also.
in Loris, SC |
Dr. Kokko and his staff are amazing. My son has been his patient for a little under a year and he has become like family. He has been the greatest doctor we've ever seen and we are grateful for him. Without him and his expertise my son would have lost his hand.

My experience was absolutely horrible I told Dr. Kokko that my pain was a nine and he brushed it off and told me to resume all activities- he arrogantly told me if I don't like the answer to get a second opinion. I had no idea that MUSC employed doctors of this caliber -will never be returning
