Gave me my life back!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Vasilios Kountis - Posted on July 13th, 2018
I wasn't able to walk without a cane. I've seen multiple doctors and surgeons and therapy never helped. Dr Kountis pinpointed my problem in my spine. Confirmed it with a nerve block and when the pain returned few weeks later after the block he removed the pain by discectomy. He stated he was only going to remove enough of the disc to alleviate my nerve root. 2 months now and I am a new person!!!!! Thank you Dr. K!

Everything was digital. Had no wait in the waiting room. First time a doctor spent an hour me reviewing my MRI, actually examining me and discussing in detail all my options! He also wrote a script to PT pinpointing what he wanted done — not just treat! Recommend him to anyone who is suffering from pain!

More about Dr. Vasilios Kountis
As an Interventional Spine Specialist, some of my skills are to examine patients to assess their pain, mobility and strength. I assess characteristics of patients' pain such as intensity, location, and duration using standardized clinical measures. I monitor the effectiveness of pain management interventions such as medications, peripheral joint and spinal injections with the goal of increasing function and improving your quality of life. I provide outpatient medical management of musculoskeletal disorders, musculoskeletal trauma, acute and chronic pain, deformity or amputation, cardiac or pulmonary disease and other disabling conditions. I will develop comprehensive plans for immediate and long-term rehabilitation including therapeutic exercise; vocational rehabilitation; counseling; work hardening programs; patient, family or caregiver education; and community reintegration. I perform electrodiagnostic studies including electromyography and nerve conduction studies to evaluate for neurologic damage. With the goal of improving functional abilities, I prescribe physical therapy to re-educate painful muscles and improve overall strength and well being.
