ONE PATIENT, ONE DOCTOR, ONE NURSE; SOUTH BAY VASCULAR CENTER'S COMMITMENT TO PERSONALIZED CARE

Putting patients at the center of everything that a physician does is a philosophy that sounds obvious...but is that always the case? At South Bay Vascular Center we are honored by the chance to earn your trust and to serve as your physicians; BUT, we also know that we must EARN the trust of every patient that we see.  That's why our CREDENTIALS are NOT Enough...That's why our REPUTATION is NOT enough. That's why unmatched patient care is at the center of everything that we do.

FOOT PAIN AT NIGHT: IT MIGHT BE MORE SERIOUS THAN YOU THINK

Foot pain at night may be an early warning sign of critical limb ischemia—another term for lack of blood flow;  if you experience rest pain at night and it goes away after hanging your foot over the side of the bed or chair you are sleeping in, call your doctor to set up an appointment for them to evaluate your symptoms. Although it may come on slowly, the arteries in your feet may be so blocked that they cannot even deliver the minimal amount of oxygen the tissues in the foot and toes need to keep them nourished. Left untreated, this blockage can lead to a more serious problem, amputation or even death.

“I found Dr. Kokinos to be excellent at explaining, assessing, and treating. It is wonderful to find an excellent doctor who is also a friendly and compassionate person.”

“For over 12 months I went between UCSF and Stanford Clinics trying to get diagnosed because I was so ill...no one could ever find a cause to any of my symptoms....it turns out it was a blood flow problem that was making me so sick. I am very thankful I found Dr. Kokinos!”
