I would thoroughly recommend Dr Kakoulas. As a cancer survivor I've seen hundreds of doctors and different medical practices. Dr K is caring, she listens, offers advice and always follows up. In emergencies, I've been seen immediately and she's always returned my calls. I feel very comfortable with her and believe that she truly cares about her patients.
I have seen Dr. Kakoulas twice now as my new internist and she is great. I like someone who will give me the facts straight without a lot of extra "fluff". Not to mention she is young and has her finger on the pulse of modern medicine. I trust her and recommend her without reservation. The office/practice is busy but organized. They work with lots of insurance plans which is great too!
She is very thorough and questions you with regard to treatment by other doctors as well. In fact, I was there recently and she pointed out that I should not be taking one particular stomach prescription I was on (prescribed by yet another doctor) since my cardiologist had recently prescribed an additional drug. She wrote a prescription for an appropriate stomach drug. A day later, a nurse-practitioner from the cardiologist's office called and told me to stop taking the original stomach drug. A good catch by my PCP! I was impressed.
