Ratings for Dr. Alexander D. Kofinas
After 6 miscarriages under the care of other doctors, I went for a second opinion 5.5 weeks pregnant. Had I not done that, my now 6 year old healthy and smart daughter would have ended in another loss. My issue was diagnosed and treated (fairly easily) at the very first appointment. I recently gave birth to our second daughter - this was a very complicated pregnancy that I highly doubt would have had a successful outcome under any other doctor's care.
I have nothing but the most positive things to say about Dr. Alexander Kofinas and his staff. I had complications from about 22 weeks into my pregnancy. If it wasn't for Dr. Kofinas' expertise and knowledge I could have potential had a stroke due to my high blood pressure. He was able to regulate me with medication, monitored me closely and I gave birth to a healthy beautiful baby girl. He and his entire staff was so wonderful. Always ready to answer any questions and I never felt rushed. I would recommend Dr. Kofinas to anyone.
My wife has been seeing Dr. Kofinas, Dr. Nguyen and their staff for the last 8 months. Their knowledge and ability to explain every detail is something that we are extremely grateful for. Their staff is very good and we would highly recommend any and all to this practice. We are a few weeks from welcoming a baby girl into our family and it is because of the help that we received from Dr. Kofinas and staff that has made this possible. Highly recommend.
Dr Kofinas has taken care of my for my two pregnancies and has been very knowledgable. Although he seems to know what he is talking about, he can come across cold and a little conceited. The people at the front desk are a little nasty and seem to be annoyed when making appointments for you. The nurses are nice and very compassionate. It is very important that you keep track of your own records and procedures because the doctors many times forget about your case. You have to be your own advocate and make sure to remind the doctor of your needs since there are so many other patients seen at this office. The perinatal side of Kofinas is definitely much better than the infertility side.
Dr. Kofinas is one of the best. He was able to quickly diagnose my issues and treat me accordingly. He's extremely knowledgable in the field of MFM. The staff is also amazing and very expierenced. If you have any issues with pregnancy Dr. Kofinas WILL help you have a healthy baby.
Another victim of this man. Just to help justify previous posters... I too believe that his bedside manner was disgusting and unprofessional! I don't think that one "desires" appropriate bedside manner, I is EXPECTED. As far as hish knowledge and abilities as a healthcare "professiona"l I too was forced to take Lovenox when I didn't need it! He could have killed my unborn child!!!!!!!!! He deserves to be shut down.
I have nothing but the highest praises and respect for Dr. Kofinas and the entire team at Kofinas Perinatal. My wife and I struggled for years to become pregnant. After discussion with her obstetrician, and doing a vast amount of research, the decision to see Dr. Kofinas was the best one we could have made. My wife was considered high risk and I wanted nothing but the best care for her and our unborn child. Being a health care professional myself, I can honestly say that Kofinas Perinatal met, and far exceeded our expectations. From the moment we entered the immaculate office greeted by Gloria, we were treated with respect and compassion. Waiting time was minimal. All of the sonographers including Diane, Tara, and Lana were top notch. State of the art ultrasound machines are used and the exams are so detailed. The ultrasound gel is warmed before being placed on my wife's belly which is a nice touch. Jennifer is great with ordering medications and lab result follow up. Most importantly, Dr. Kofinas' bedside manner and attention to detail is unparalleled. We never felt rushed and he always was accessible. Pregnancy can be a stressful time for both husband and wife. Being under the care of Dr. Kofinas put us at ease. Our bundle of joy entered this world on April 12, 2016. She is perfect in every way. I do hope that we can see Dr. Kofinas for number two in the near future.
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!
