Dr. Panos Fourtounis has the following 1 specialty
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Changed primary care provider to Dr. Fourtounis. What a difference. He heard me about my neck/shoulder/arm/finger pain and ordered an MRI, physical therapy, physiatry, got outside acupuncture approved and time off from work. Previous doctor told me he thought the pinched nerve would get well on its own. Yeah, uhh huh.
My health has severly declined since being at his phacility, very ill, labled, neglected, to young to be bedridden when I should have a doctor to help diagnose the problem rather blame every symptom on anxiety because it costs less to treat and less work for him and basically wasting away. I sure hope this "anxiety "doesn't take me out. According to him, it causes severe vomiting, seizure like episodes with confusion, memory loss, fainting, severe edema, kidney pain, vision and hearing loss,tremors and a disease in every organ. Im guessing he believes a shrink can fix all of this and cure me so I can get out of my bed.?!!! That's kaiser for you! If you want your health and dignity , respect, honesty, proper care and symptom management to have any quality of life? ? Stay far far away from kaiser!!! They care more about their money than they do their patients.
He has been one of the most upstanding physicians we have ever dealt with. He has addressed all of our needs and concerns, whether in person or by phone. I would definitely recommend him. Yes, we might sometimes have to wait to be seen, but that just tells as he is spending the necessary time needed for each patient. I have never felt like he is trying to hurry me out. He is definitely a "5" in our book.
I first was a patient of Dr Fourtunis's when he was at Salmon Creek Clinic. Then he left there and went to East Interstate and I went there also. I was'nt going to lose the nicest Dr. I had ever had. The only thing I can say about him is that he is too busy. If you have a problem and you don't talk to him completely about it and if you let him out of the room, you don't see him anymore. You have to grab him while he's with you. I have no desire to see anyother dr. He listens to you and is always willing to refer you to a dept. that will help you when he can't.
