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.

Dr Koch was incredibly thorough, easy to talk to and seemed in no hurry to get my appointment over with (which is a welcomed change in this world of drive through health care!) i was in the office for a very long time since i was a new patient and the initial h&p took a while but it was definitely time well spent!

I'm pregnant and so stressed out from a variety of things and I go see Dr. and she literally has me in tears. She sass mad that I seen another dr. While seeeing her. I was just seeing the dr. For his opinion not to leave her practice. Regardless she was yelling at me when I'm already so stressed and depressed. I couldn't believe it. I used to think she was the best Dr. now I think she is a terrible person.

I thought my first few appointments were great---very thorough, friendly staff, listen to my concerns, etc. (very much like the reviews posted on here) There were some things I did not like---extremely long wait times, seeing pharmaceutical reps coming in and out every time I had an appointment, and the doctor asking me out of the blue about how I got the stretch marks on my body and then stating she can prescribe me cream to get rid of them. I tried brushing it off and ignoring these things because I did feel she was quite thorough and thought she knew what she was doing. But then other things occurred in subsequent appointments.... I felt like they were always trying to prescribe me meds that I don't need nor want. Dr. Koch became quite condescending and short with me during one appointment refusing to consider other evidence based treatments besides meds. She was in a bad mood and complained to her staff for overbooking because it was 6:30 in the evening and she had a waiting room full of people. She did find time though to randomly ask me AGAIN if I want prescription cream to get rid of my stretch marks. I could not believe how insensitive and unprofessional she was! What really pissed me off was I had a bladder infection and wasn't told about the results of treated until well over a month later! Definitely not going back to her!
