43 Year Old Single Female - Arlington Heights, IL

My experience with Dr kotis has been wonderful. I liked him the very first time I met him. He makes me feel very comfortable and confident with his surgery. He is very thorough at explaining the procedure ahead of time so you don't have all this worry about what is going to happen. His bed side manner is great as well. He actually took the time to call me afterwards to see how I was feeling which I really appreciated. I would definitely recommend Dr Kotis and in fact I already have.
