Sarasota, FL |
Dr Kouka refused to see me as well knowing that i had been out of Meds for 2 weeks, This is a life threatening situation. I would advise anyone considering Dr Kouka to seek help else where. He is condescending, arrogant and cares more about himself than helping others.

He works at the Infectious Disease Manatee Rural Health. I had an appointment with him and he refused to see me until I had blood work. This Dr determined that to make me lapse in my drug regimen that I have had for 22 years decided that is was more important for me to run out of my script in lieu of waiting for my blood work. Found my old Doctor in Sarasota and he filled my prescription and will read my blood work accordingly. Do not see this Doctor, arrogant.
