I was awakened from my endoscopic procedure with the news I had esophageal cancer. I was immediately referred to Dr. Kokal who operated on me for this deadly cancer. Today 11 yrs later, I am still cancer free and living a great life. Thank you Dr Kokal!!!

Dr. Kokal performed an appendectomy on me several years ago that led to internal bleeding and a hematoma that crushed my sciatic nerve, put me in the hospital with intense pain and left me with a permanent sciatic neuropathy. Dr. Kokal never came to see me in the hospital after the initial surgery. The care I received at Lee Healthpark was so awful that I had to be sent by ambulance to Tampa General where the doctors there figured out what was wrong and literally saved my life.

I had an emergent procedure done after having a j tube placed inappropriately by a colleague in Dr. Kokal's office. What I do remember, will never forget, and have been diagnosed with PTSD from: is coming to in a room with Dr. Kokal's first inside my abdomen... all the way to mid-forearm. I remember being terrified, trying to scream and being told to "shut up", that "... you cannot possibly be feeling that" I could feel it, could see it, and won't ever forget it. He shouldn't be practicing.

Dr. Kokal was very thorough explaining my surgery and the risks associated with it. He stressed the importance of waiting to perform the surgery until my infection was under control. As a result of this recommendation he was able to perform my surgery laprascopic which resulted in a much shorter and less painful recovery. Dr. Kokal saw me every day I was in the hospital to check up on my progress. I recommend Dr. Kokal without reservation. Job well done. Thank you.
