One of Dr. Kakos’ desires after becoming a physician is ensuring that he becomes intertwined within the community in which he practices. He believes building trust and lasting relationships are paramount in achieving that goal. Dr. Kakos’ patients are fully involved in their care and are aware of all treatment options so they can choose the best plan to fit their lifestyle.
Born and raised in the Metro Detroit area, Dr. Kakos was excited to return home and care for the Detroit community. Integrating his love of sports with his passion for medicine, made a career in sports medicine feel like a natural fit. When Dr. Kakos is not serving his community through medicine, he enjoys running, tennis, and spending time with his family.
