Dr. Kokotos performed a quad cardiac bypass on me in January, 2010. He is a kind person and a top notch surgeon. I had no complications from my surgery and loved his bedside manner. It's been almost 8 years since my surgery and I feel great. I've done my part losing weight and exercising and following up with a Cardiologist 2/year. Thank you Dr.Kokotos, I'm very thankful to you and will never forget what you did for me. Dr. Steven L. Tray, Chiropractor

Dr Kokotos performed a Mitrol Valve repair (open heart) procedure on me in July 2016. Eight months later and I am fine, and doing all normal activities. He is an excellent surgeon and a very nice man!
in Long Beach, NY |
I recently had an ablation procedure on a Friday by Dr. Kokotos. I have only high praise for his surgical skills, and just an importantly, I appreciate his empathetic and gracious way he related with me. He took as much time needed to ensure that I understood the how and why of the procedure. It was gratifying and uplifting to see him early on a Saturday. And ultimately his excellent cardiac skills resulted for me in a successful outcome.

Our son had numerous collapses of his lung and Dr Kokotos and everyone and Winthrop Hospital was able to provide great care since my son also had colitis at the same time which was an additional burden.

needed valve replacement. Dr. Kokotos came in to my room and spent a good deal of time talking to me and explaining the operation from beginning to end which made me feel confident in his doing the procedure. It's been a year and I'm scheduling an appointment for my annual exam. I feel wonderful and am thankful that my Cardiologist recommended Dr. Kokotos.
