Ratings for Dr. Konstantinos Panagiotopoulos
Don't bother with this Doctor. he was an hour late to the appointment, asks me to change into shorts, then goes to visit another patient, how long does it take to change into shorts ? Despite all that, my visit took 2 min, he did a very quick examination and wanted to leave right away. I still don't know what is wrong with my knee and what the next course of action is. Seems all he does is refer you to physiotherapy rather than examining you himself. Don't waste your time here, go see someone else.
I have had a bit of a mixed experience with Dr Panagiotopolous. I suffered a ruptured achilles, which is by and large something that orthopedic surgeons see a lot of. On the one hand, he was extremely confident, and gave me the sense that this was no big deal. On the other hand, this WAS a big deal for me to have surgery, follow a non-weight-bearing protocol, and drastically change my life and plans for the next couple of months. Dr P is a total professional and a master at his craft, but like many specialists, these run of the mill injuries are unimportant to him and it shows. Immediately after my surgery I was given 30 seconds of instruction on what to do for the next 2 weeks and I was told to book a follow-up appointment in a couple of weeks. When I asked if it was okay to ask a few questions before I left, he rolled his eyes and sighed "okay". While the communication style is not what I would have hoped, he clearly did a great job on the surgery. The incision was small, I have since been healing very well, and overall I am pleased with the process. Ultimately, I think you would want a professional surgeon that knows what he is doing over a surgeon that will talk you through everything very clearly, although it would be great to see the best of each side. If you have surgery with Dr P, I would suggest that you find an additional avenue of support. For me, that has been a few detailed rehabilitation websites and an excellent physiotherapist that has experience with this type of injury. That has helped me understand my injury and the healing process much better. I think the staff have been excellent to deal with. I had one question for the Doctor, and although he did not call back, his staff was prompt in their follow-up and did everything they said they would. The Operating Room staff were amazing. I simply cannot say how important it is when you are about to be put under to have compassionate people in that room that make you feel at ease and explain what is happening. I was very impressed.
I had a full knee replacement (a complicated sugrey) done in Jan. 2004 , and after 12 years and having followed the instruction from the doctor I have continued to work past retirement age . He lets you know the exercise program and the restrictions Am very glad he was to the point . does not spend a lot of time with you but the time was valuable Thanks Dr P.
Saw Dr Kosta for a fractured wrist. He was very professional and knowledgeable. Took my concerns seriously. I would recommend him. I expect to have knee replacements in the future and wouldn't hesitate to use Dr Kosta. Punctuality a bit iffy but that's because he's on call and extremely busy. I don't fault him for that.
had both hip replaced in2013 every thing came out perfect,both were pain free,where I asked if he had done a root canal on my hips. I resumed playing tennis and senior hockey and played over 70 games last year. I was 75 when hips replaced. His answers to all my questions on thesurgary,rehab were right on
