Patient reviews for Dr. Helene M. Koch
I’ve been seeing Dr. Koch for years. She is very knowledgeable and pleasant. She makes you feel welcomed as soon as she steps in the door. She also has a great team that supports her.
Dr. Koch is everything you want in a doctor!
Staff were very friendly and made me feel comfortable. They listen to my concerns and made sure I get all the help I need. I would definitely recommend this place to any woman.
She’s a fantastic physician, I will def be going back. She has great bedside manner while not sugar coating anything.
Everyone at this office was absolutely lovely and professional! My first time seeing an obgyn and I’ll never go anywhere else from now on. Dr. Koch and her staff are kind and I left the office feeling heard and taken EXTREMELY well care of.
The very best care. The doctor & staff always make me feel so comfortable & confident in their ability to help me make the best decisions for my health.
Dr. Koch is amazing. She is an incredibly busy physician who takes the time to listen. I don't mind waiting to be heard.
I wish I'd read the Yelp reviews. She really does push medications. And I mean PUSH. She told me that if I did not accept her bladder medication I would end up incontinent. She also tried to change my antidepressants. She knew this brand that would make me "smile within two weeks, guaranteed" because apparently that is how SSRIs work in her world. She literally wrote out a prescription and I had to tell her no, I do not value her psychiatric advice over that of the actual psychiatrist I see. Also, I never expected a gynecologist to be so judgmental of a college student engaging in hookup culture. As a 19 yr old, this was my first time at the gynecologist. I called my mom and cried during the Uber home.
The doctor was familiar with me and recalled many things I had shared with her in the past. She was caring and concerned about my health. Using Zodiac was much improved from trying to make an appointment by phone.
Informative. Am always happy with my office visits.
Very nice. Went smoothly. She was very understanding of all my concerns and issues
Dr Koch is fantastic..She has been my Dr for almost 20yrs and i trust her with every aspect of my care.
I found Dr Koch by chance through Zocdoc because she offered late night visits. It was the BEST thing that’s happened. I had been struggling with reoccurring vaginal discharge and irritation. Every other doctor I went to tested me for STDs and then diagnosed me with a standard yeast infection and every time I would return because the symptoms would not go away. Other doctors treated me as if I were not following their direction but I knew something was wrong. I came in explained my problem to Dr Koch. She tested me for every strand of yeast and bacteria and sure enough it was a form of bacteria. I had went to countless doctors, urgent care, and even the ER. No one could diagnose me but Dr Koch. Needless to say, she has a new patient for life! I would highly recommend her. She listens, she cares, and she knows her stuff. Her office is also tech savvy which I love. I can check my results and visit notes on her portal which is really convenient.
Excellent! I’ve been going to her for about 15 years including through 2 pregnancies. I highly recommend her.
Always enjoy my visit with Dr. Koch. She and her staff treat me well and warmly.
I have been going to her for 20 years!
Never get back to me on my blood work results. Barely answer phones!!
She was great. Very straight forward and respectful.
Didn’t like the new check-in system. It was very I’m personal and took entirely too long. Waiting time once triaged was too long too. I love Dr. Koch but the wait time is an issue.
Dr. Helene and her team were awesome! Incredibly friendly, thorough and helpful, they made me feel at ease and answered all my questions. Can't wait for my follow up visit
Excellent provider and staff!
Way too invasive and complete lack of follow up. Also many untrue details as far as what was discussed in my medical records.
Dr. Koch, Is amazing and makes you feel very comfortable. She is through, she was very busy but made me feel as if I was the only patient there.
She's truly the best!
Dr. Koch was simply wonderful. Went in for annual exam and IUD removal and i didn’t even know she removed it she made it so quick and painless. She also showed me (with my hand) what to feel for in a monthly self breast exam which was super helpful. I didn’t feel rushed and she spent time getting to know me.
Dr. Koch and staff are always awesome!!!!
She cares. Best ob/gyn ive ever had
met with Amanda the Nurse practitioner. She was very thorough,, knowledgeable and informative. I’d recommend her highly!
Dr Koch takes care of all my medical/personal needs when I need an appointment, her office is very busy and worth the wait. Dr Koch takes time with her patients to listen and understand their personal needs.
Everyone I saw was extremely nice and friendly. They made me feel comfortable and at ease during the exam.
Dr Koch works as an attending to what seems like a free residents, but they were attentive and very helpful. Knowledgeable staff and friendly demeanors
I love Dr. Koch and her entire office personnel. They are always available for any issues I have.
Everyone was super nice and accommodating. Dr. Koch was extremely personable and professional, and her entire office made me feel very comfortable and welcome on my first visit. It's a hike (30-40 minute ride) but I think it's worth it. Glad I found her!
Dr. Koch and her staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and heard during my appointment. It was a long one, but I felt that they took the time they needed to get to know me and answer all of my questions. This is by far the best OB/GYN office I have ever been to, and I am so excited to be receiving care here
I was very nervous but everyone was kind, caring, and reassured me that everything would be alright. They really cared and answered my questions.
She really cares about her patients.
I love the staff and the doctor. I go farther than referring Dr. Koch, I am encouraging my daughter to make an appointment with her. I have found my forever doctor! Thank you
I had an evening appointment I was so nervous about having a bad experience from my previous experiences. The front desk associate was extremely nice quick and thorough. The PAs were great. Dr. Koch was amazing she listened to a concern I had ignored by others for quite some time. She explained everything extremely thoroughly! I felt good after my appt.
I was very pleased with my visit. My issues were addressed in a caring and pleasant manner.
I think she’s great but there’s something that I didn’t liked which is they don’t have sonar machine in their office. At all i would recommend Dr.Helene M. Koch .
I have been coming to Dr.Koch for a few years now. She’s great and so is her staff!
The wait time is long but the wait is worth it. Dr. Koch is knowledgeable and knows what she is talking about. I love her !
Dr. Koch is fantastic! She really asks great questions, makes you understand that she cares about your health and has always provided me great information on things I didn't even know I needed to know. The wait before the appointment can sometimes test your patience, but once you meet with her, all that makes it worth the wait for sure.
It was my first time seeing an OBGYN & getting a pap. Dr. Koch and the ladies that assisted her did a great job. I felt secure & comfortable. Definitely would recommend to someone else like she was recommended to me.
Awesome as always??
Dr. Koch and her staff are very professional and friendly, she doesn't rush through the appointment like some Dr's, she takes her time shows she cares about her patients.
I love Dr Koch, I have been seeing her since 2004. I love the staff as well. Always very friendly and respectful.
I love those ladies
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND CHOOSE ANOTHER DOCTOR. They DO NOT pick up the phone EVER- even after you’ve left a million voice messages. So I only would recommend going here if you are fine with never being able to communicate with your doctor again after you’ve left the office. Secondly, this office ignorantly sent my lab work to a lab that IS NOT covered by my insurance, leaving me with a huge bill to pay. Did not offer much help to resolve the issue, and once again was impossible to resolve due to an impossibility of contacting someone over the phone. DO NOT RECOMMEND AND WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS OFFICE.
Dr. Koch is very professional and pleasant. The wait time can sometimes lengthy, even with an appt, but well worth the wait. She cares about her profession and patients and provides the best care possible.
