This doctor and his staff are excellent. I felt comfortable the minute I talked to the receptionist. Dr. Kouskov spent a couple of hours with me, and explained my condition in detail and easy-to-understand language. He even drew me pictures to facilitate a mental image for me. Dr. Kouskov went to work immediately to set me up an appointment for a PET scanUnder the cirmstances, this was one of the most pleasant visits I have had with a doctor.

I took my teen to see Dr. Kouskov after 14 years of battling a sleep disorder--one in which we had seen 3 specialists prior. Dr. Kouskov had gathered and read through the surgeries, tests, information and background on our daughter (before our appointment) and was able to eliminate and isolate the issues we needed to discuss. After seeing other doctors who just wanted to repeat the same sleep studies, Dr, K. was able to address our daughter directly and help her to take control of her challenge which has completely restricted her schooling and everyday functioning since she was a baby. The change is unbelievable! With his helpful insight and phenomenal way of explaining and guiding our discussion, our daughter came home and, for the first time felt empowered, followed what he suggested. She is now sleeping most nights and is up most of each day. While we once had resigned to think she may never function in everyday life, we now have hope she may one day be able to overcome the severe delayed sleep-phase syndrome that has plagued our family for years. Thank you, Kr. Kouskov, for caring enough to look beyond the studies and for seeing our girl where she is at. You are insightful and tactful in how you handled our daughter's predicament and you gave us hope that our homelife could change and it has! We will see you again and can't wait to report the results of following your plan. Having worked for some amazing physicians I recognize the callibur of this physician, and he is top-notch in his field. I can't say enough but thank you!!

He completely confused my wife regarding need for a SA test and therefore she opted to not complete the clinic. She will go back to her primary doctor for clarification and possibly get a referral to another clinic or doctor. Many questions on the list she was asked to complete were too subjective. Questions such as were on the list should be answered in discussion with the doctor.

Doctor's Response

I am sorry Mrs BH's husband was not satisfied with Mrs BH's choice. Mrs BH was referred to me to discuss the test. After I explained how it is done and what is involved in the treatment if it is positive, she refused the test. I respect her wishes, she is a competent person. And I told her if she changes her mind she can call me and I will set it up. She never called back and that makes me think she was happy with her choice. Unfortunately, her husband was not happy with the choice but for some reason made me responsible for it and wrote the above review. We use standardized questionnaires like Epworth Sleepiness Scale (mentioned by Mr H) to roughly assess sleepiness. It was validated in the studies and is frequently used by almost all physicians. And I always verify the responces on the survey, the husband who wrote the review probably did not know that.
