Dr. Alexander Kofinas might not be the warm fuzzy doctor the prior poster desired, but I will tell you Dr. Alexander Kofinas is extremely intelligent and knows his medical expertise. Personally, I will take a serious, focused intelligent medical expert, over a warm fuzzy , incompetent Dr (and I have seen both). I came to Kofinas as a second opinion and stayed with him. I had delivered a healthy baby boy due to Dr. Alexander Kofinas. I did take Lovenox for the health of the baby. i did not care about the testing., I just wanted to do whatever I had to for a healthy baby and I have gotten that. Kofinas is a genius and tops in his field. He is a miracle worker in my book!

It is really sad that people view his bedside manner as professional. Dr. Alexander D. Kofinas forced me to take over $10,000 worth of bloodwork, begins Levonox injections (when I didn't need them) and then misdiagnosed me. This horrible Doctor yelled at me in his office that day saying I would bleed to death if I didn't have immediate surgery to remove a "second" baby stuck in my tube. I wake up from surgery to find out there was never another baby. Dr. Alexander D. Kofinas still stuck to his story even after the surgery. Demanding payment and never admitting his wrong. Unecesessary testing, unnecessary medicine and unecessary SURGERY! I don't want this to ever happen to anyone else. I pray that my story makes you think twice and then again before ever trusting this man.

I took the time to read every single post on Dr. Kofinas. I was suprised to read some of them. As for his bedside manners, if you dont understand his personality then you will find him rude. I never found him rude, i found him to be a very serious doctor who takes his job seriously. I am sure he understands his patients are emotionally wrecked from whatever they are going through, but what's more important is having that baby. If these people asked themselves "do i want a hug" or "do i want a baby" I am for certain bedside manners wouldnt be so important. As for insurance, these are questions you have to ask no matter where you go. Call your insurance as well and ask all of the important questions. This is your homework, not your doctors. As for his knowledge, I came to Dr. Kofinas 3 years ago when i was days away from losing my baby girl because the very first OB i went to had no clue how to read a sonogram and missed a massive blood clot on my placenta. I ended up having thrombophelia, five factors. Some doctors will disagree as did the Dr.s at Roosevelt Hospital when i had to go there in an emergency from work. I stayed with Kofinas because i knew the man was a genuis and knew what he was talking about. Today I am 2 weeks away from delivering my third baby. As for his staff, i've always found them to be very helpful. The only thing that was a problem was scheduling me in for future appointments. But it is what it is, i had to make a few sacrifices and eventually the appointmnents began to work for me. Overall, i love Dr. Kofinas, i love his staff, and my experience with all three pregnancies was wonderful. My heart goes out to all of those who have lost their babies, it is not an easy thing to go through. I wish with all my heart no one had to ever go through such a horrific loss. It is all in God's will, he has a plan for each and every one of us. Just have faith!!

He is the most knowledgable doctor I have ever met. I trust his opinion 100%. He always has a study that he has done to back up what he is recommending. He truly cares about your overall wellbeing of you and your unborn child.

I have a long history of repeated miscarriages and as a result have been to see several of the top infertility doctors in the city. Dr. Kofinas and his staff are by FAR the most human, compassionate team we have experienced. Rather than just keep pushing for more IVF cycles, Dr. Kofinas has investigated why I keep having pregnancy losses, and is attempting to treat this underlying condition. Regardless of how things turn out for us, I am deeply grateful for his excellent care.

Dr. Alexander Kofinas is an amazing doctor who will follow through with you always. I have a major reproach however: the man lacks people skills, and can be perceived as insensitive. We have been through a lot, and blaming your technician about a missing remote in front of a crying patient to whom you just told she will need to terminate her pregnancy: unreal. Making jokes the second time around about previous pregnancy's disaster: beyond insensitive. In spite of these quirks, he is an excellent doctor. I much prefer the personality of his brother George by far though.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kofinas for many years. I see him every 2 weeks while pregnant. The care and attention I receive from him and his staff is top notch... I have very difficult pregnancies and have had many losses. I hold Dr. Kofinas responsible for me being able to carry my son to term. Pregnant with my second child I have complete confidence that I will carry to term under the care of Dr Kofinas, he is a medical genius, thinks outside of the box, he truly cares about you! Name another dr that wants to be called while on vacation when you visit his office for a sono to make sure you are progressing the way you should be! One of a kind, would recommend this office above all others

I go see Dr. Kofinask every two weeks. I admit at first i was second guessed going there because he was out of my network and I had to pay extra but i am so happy I did. He discovered some issues that my regular OBGYN didn't. I wish i could give 10 stars to his knowledge and staff rating. I honestly look forward to going because they are so helpful, comforting and i know i am in the best hands.
