Dr. Koutrelakos is one of the nicest doctors I have ever met! I refer people to him all of the time. He is most certainly in the right profession. He can give you the straight story but is VERY compassionate and thoughtful. He bedside manner is beyond compare. This is the doctor that you want taking care of you or your loved one.

Diagnosed with colorectal cancer in January 2013. Recommended by my surgeon, Dr. K was invaluable to my recovery. His message: the next year is gonna stink, but you can do anything for a year, right? We can fix you. I put my trust (and life) with him, and he didn't disappoint. He's extremely down-to-earth, personable, interested in ME, and more importantly, my family. Not just a doc; a life coach. Compassionate, caring, and best-in-class. Recommend without ANY hesitation. Staff is incredible.

Dr. K took care of my Mother during final stages of Ovarian Cancer last year (9/2015). He took time to talk with a family having difficulty accepting her diagnosis and was patient in explaining the obvious. Although he had seen her only once as a consultant in the hospital, he willing took on management of her hospice care at home. She was able to pass away at home in her own surroundings which was a comfort to her as well as the family. Thank you Dr. K.

Dr. Koutrelakos humanizes the cancer treatment process. He is easy to talk to, answers all questions, explained treatment in layman's terms and made me feel like my recovery was a priority. He has a wealth of experience and is down to earth as well.

No empathy. How can an someone with no empathy be an oncologist? Not very flexible with scheduling and will get legitimately angry at you if you miss an appointment. He wanted to do a very invasive surgery and I opted for robotic surgery by another doctor and Dr. Koutrelakos threw a fit. He's an arrogant jerk, rude, and should not be allowed near such vulnerable people.
