What People Say About Dr. Sotirios Kassapidis, MD

This is one doctor who listens to his patients , we met him at Mount Sinai Hospital in emergency. After many visits to emergency rooms, and doctors who were rated highly, he was the only doctor who solved our problem with a infection in the lungs, and took care of my health, made me more comfortable, and really cared, something difficult to find today. We highly recommend him. He also reminds us of Eric Clapman, wonderful personality and bedside manner

The worst dr I've ever seen in my life!!. My son was on life support last year and he was assigned to him as the pulmonogist. Horrible bedside manners, arrogant, lacked empathy and insensitive to me and my family members. I was devastated to see my son in such condition and this dr was so cold hearted towards me and even called security to keep me from asking him of the status of my son.

First time patient. Pleasant demeanor, friendly, professional bedside manner, will answer all your questions, isn't rushing nor dismissive. The office is spacious, impeccably clean and offers a self-serve area providing coffee, tea, and water to accommodate you while you wait. I had the pleasure of working with an excellent Respiratory Therapist who is simply gifted at what she does and makes your testing a comfortable experience. In all, I highly recommend this Doctor and this office.
