I prefer to treat problems conservatively, if possible. I provide a one-on-one approach to patient care, and like to take care to help patients understand their condition as well as the rationale behind the treatment options and recommendations. I like to involve the primary care physician, and keep them informed as to the patient's condition and treatment progress.Read more

Highland Park, IL |
Dr. Kodros performed surgery on my broken ankle about a week ago, he inserted 9pins (screws) and a plate with incisions on both side of the ankle. First I have to say that selecting a doctor that you have never had any prior experience with is often a very difficult process. You continually second guess yourself (sicnce it is your life and health in question) am I making the right choice with this doctor is he competent, is he telling me the truth. I always get and belie

He uses a conservative approach. Not trying to sell me surgery! Very informative and listened to my needs. He spent a great amount of time with me. I really liked his NO b.s. personality. I am scheduling surgery with him due to his impressive education!!
Evanston, IL |
Dr. Kodros was incredibly dismissive, arrogant, and flippant during my visit. His level of disrespect for me as a patient was unacceptable. I will never go back to his office, and will make a point to lead as many away from his practice as I can. On top of this, after prolonged discussion about the particulars of my appointment, his staff still managed to mis schedule me. I do not doubt his medical knowledge or ability, but his interpersonal skills leave MUCH to be desired.
Chicago, IL |
Am very young for such a serious foot problem. I can't walk much due to extreme pain with walking and told him it has been years, age 37-40. He recommended an orthotic and calf stretches. Needless to say, orthotics increased numbness and calf stretches, since bending 1st MTPJ is the problem, increases pain. I still can hardly walk over a year after this appointment. I think he didn't take the severity seriously. I use a knee walker to do my job.

Not very friendly or helpful. Only spent a couple minutes reading over an extensive history of charts and images. Essentially, if he doesn't have an immediate solution for you off the top of his head, he won't go out of his way to find one. ~ Not sure, can't help you.
