Dr. Konakis is a fabulous doctor. Me and my family have been seeing her for around 10 years. I came in one day for a regular check up and began to tell her that my leg had been bothering me (it was like I pulled a muscle). She felt my leg and immediately new that I had a blood clot. I went to have an ultra sound and she was right. I was suppose to be leaving that day on a trip to the Dominican Republic with 22 family members and although I was very upset that I couldn't go she saved my life because while on a plane that blood clot could have killed me. She is a very good listener and I hope she stays in practice.
I'm very disappointing on Dr. Konakis. I was her patient for one year but she never saw me. I was only seen by the RN in this group. Making appointment is difficult since most likely you will reach the voice mailbox and will get no callback. No follow ups unless you insist.
Dr. Konakis is wonderful. She is kind and caring, as well as a skilled diagnostician and treatment provider. I feel grateful to have her. I also love the fact that she is a Renown physician, and if I need to be seen urgently I will be scheduled with another Renown doctor if she is unavailable. Great care!
My wife and I love Dr. K, she saved my life. I had been to emergency with what I thought were stomach issues with poor result. Dr. Konakis was a referal on the emergency form, I took my chances and hit the jackpot, she found through thorough testing that I had Cardio Myopathy (weak heart). She made sure I was put in the hospital immediately. She listened to me where the know it all emergency drs. just wanted to hear themselves talk. I thank God every day for this caring, wonderful doctor.
Awesome! Wonderful! Caring! Thorough! Love her! Only problem is she's sooo good it can be hard to get an appoinntment with her unless it's an emergency. Then, her staff will find a way to fit you in. I've been seeing Dr. Konakis for about a year. I feel like I'm falling apart all of a sudden but it's probably that I trust Dr. Konakis like I've never trusted another doctor and have told her all the issues I've had over the years. She has referred me to specialists who have diagnosed and fixed several things and I'm feeling better than ever. Thank you, Dr. Konakis. You're the best!
I LOVE DR. KONAKIS! The kindest, most caring, compassionate, knowledgeable doctor I've ever met. She takes the time to listen and hear what I have to say. SHE returns phone calls and makes sure everything is clear before hanging up. SHE IS THE BEST.
This doctor is simply amazing. I had seen this doctor before but unfortunately she had moved to another practice and not until I had serious health issues did I seek her out again since the 2 doctors I had over three years just turned out to be huge disappointments, one of which felt the need to confide inappropriate negative feelings about other doctors in town as well as patients and even staff. Well, I'm just glad I left and found this doctor. Not only is she warm, welcoming, and extremely knowledgeable but uses that knowledge to the extreme, ensuring that any of my concerns were taken seriously. Her referrals to two different specialists were profoundly effective making me feel as if I belonged to some secret and private medical group for the privileged and elite. And the staff, simply amazing. The supervisor is absolutely service oriented as are the rest of the staff. Honestly this doctor and staff are elite in every way!!!
I love Dr. Konakis. I had a foot problem that she diagnosed, so I went to the foot doctor. He ignored her diagnosis and treated me for something else. I had to go back to him and it turned out she was right, and he did the procedure she told me he would probably need to do. She is caring and SHE LISTENS to what you have to say. She doesn't rush you and lets you know that what you have to say is important. If you have a concern she spends the time to answer all your questions and asks if you have more questions. She respects what you tell her and acts on it by ordering tests or by helping to educate you on the subject. She never talks down to you and explains things so its easy to understand. I have only had a long wait once, when she had an emergency. The staff is usually good about letting you know if the doctors are running late. The staff is friendly enough and seem to try to be helpful.
