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've been seeing Dr. Koch for years, and have always found her very easy to talk to and informative. The office does get busy at times, but I feel like it's worth the wait because I feel more comfortable with Dr. Koch than any other doctors I've seen.

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!

I have been a patient of Dr. Koch for at least twenty years. She has always been a pleasure to see. I temporarily transferred from her practice to another practice only because I wanted to deliver at a different hospital than what's she affiliated with but after my delivery I quickly returned with no hesitation. I will note that when the other practice saw my records, they stated they Dr. Koch was extremely thorough. My last visit to her was yesterday. I came with an issue that I was having exteme anxiety about and she and her staff quickly made me feel at ease and like a team. There previously was an issue with wait times but I was seen within 5 minutes of arriving. I also was done within an hour which was shocking due to the numerous issues I was being treated for.

I came in nervous since it was my first time and didn't know what to expect. But she took her time to explain everything to me and was super gentle. I would definitely recommend!
