I will not be going back. I went for an annual gyno exam that should have been completed relatively quickly but ended up getting a lecture about my mental health because I failed a survey I was given about how I felt in the past two weeks. She gave me antidepressants when I said I was not comfortable with that because of an OD last year and she ignored that I am working through my problems with a therapist. She didn't have any of my records on time from before either and changed my hypothyroid medication and then prescribed me a sleeping medication because I said I get anxious at night. I didn't want any of that. I came for me regular exam. I did ask about birth control (IUD) and she didn't answer any of my questions about it and instead gave me the nuva ring. And finally after two hours there already, she made me get bloodwork and I am not good with needles and felt very uncomfortable and stressed to the point where I started bawling when they couldn't get into my vein. I need time to mentally prepared for these things and I felt completely ignored at this appointment. If someone says they aren't comfortable with something, discuss it, don't force it.

The wait was a little long, but I expected that from some previous reviews. Additionally, I booked the last appointment available in the evening. The PA was very friendly and did a thorough intake since I'm a new patient. I appreciated her attention to detail and how she made me feel comfortable through that process. While I waited for Dr. Koch, another PA came in to express her apologies for the wait and even offered me snacks! Dr. Koch herself was very personable, professional, and made me feel at ease. She took time to answer my questions and eased my concerns about a specific issue. Very happy to have found her practice and look forward to future visits with this team.

Dr. Koch was very thorough. She explained each procedure she was doing, what it was for. She looked at the underlining issues and took nothing for granted. I felt as though I was in very good hands. It was the first time I had been to the doctors in a while and her bedside manner helped with anxiety a lot

The student doc/resident was nervous but nice. The PA was excellent. Everyone was friendly and pretty efficient when I got in there, but it was a little over an hour wait from my appointment time till when I actually got through to start the appointment.

My first experience was great here despite the 2+ hour wait (which is pretty ridiculous,honestly) my experience here has been less than stellar. If you are pregnant, I DO NOT recommend this Obgyn. Getting them to fax documents is like pulling teeth. I call during normal business hours and can't get them on the phone. I never got the doctors note I requested. If you leave call back information, they do not respond. I will be transferring to a new practice.

I really love Dr. Koch. She is very professional and listens to your concerns. She addresses everything! She makes sure that your total health is in tact. She is bright and cheery! She recommends the best of everything for you personally. She is gentle with your body and very quick. I truly wish she was my primary care doctor as well. She is one of the very best in her profession and she dress in good taste. Dr. Koch takes good care of you and she leaves you feeling good about your overall visit. She is highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.

I moved to this area and had been looking for a new GYN and chose Helene due to her location and ratings on here. I waited an hour to be taken back to a room for my appointment. And for my first time meeting her as a new patient she was not personable.
