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 concernI had ignored by others for quite some time. She explained everything extremely thoroughly! I felt good after my appt.

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 cansometimes test your patience, but once you meet with her, all that makes it worth the wait for sure.

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 communicatewith 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.

Overall I like Dr. Koch, she's a DO and in general thorough with patients but I have several problems with her and her office. First of all on my first visit there were four people in the room while I wasgetting examined - Dr. Koch, a PA student, nurse, and medical student. I'm a medical student so I understand that it's an important learning opportunity and I did agree to the people's presence, but I think they should limit it to three or fewer people in the room with the patient otherwise it's overwhelming. Today when I went in for a follow up visit, Dr. Koch came in without knocking which I found odd and really lacked bedside manner. She barely greeted me and went right into looking at my chart and couldn't remember what I had been treated with or what my issue was, instead of asking me what my diagnosis/treatment had been she just looked at my chart. It felt very impersonal, she was facing the computer for the entire visit and barely spoke to me. She also inserted the speculum without any lubrication and tends to do so with little warning. She seemed to be shocked when I reported having more than one partner, which was humiliating and ridiculous as many (especially young) people have multiple partners, it doesn't make us less deserving of adequate care. I have also had issues in the past getting in contact with the office. They **never** answer the phone and do NOT reply to voicemails. I will leave a voicemail, and about 50% of the time they address the issue but don't call me back, 50% of the time they don't address the issue. In general I think everyone that works here has good intentions but they would benefit from working on bedside manner and getting back to patients. With gynecological issues there is often a lot of stress and anxiety going on for patients and it is horrible to not get a call back from your doctor when you're in that state. I wouldn't really recommend a friend to Dr. Koch at this point.

They were very thorough. Very nice. It was a little uncomfortable because there were so many people in the room during my exam and during the intake. It was a little overwhelming being shuttled room to room and being treated by3-4 students and a PA at the same time. Everything was good and everyone was very nice but I would have felt much more comfortable with a one-on-one intake and a one-on-one physician.

I felt rushed and just a number. I went in for a birth control consultation and I felt like maybe she didn’t agree with it or this wasn’t her specialty. But I felt like even though she was late for myappointment I was the one being rushed and she left saying how experienced she was. I do not doubt her expertise but I felt like I couldn’t get the time of Day with her. And now I feel like it was such a waste of time because I’ve been calling nonstop to set up a follow up appointment. I can do that on easily accomplish this on zocdoc, but I was given specific instructions to call in the next time.
