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.

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.

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. 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.

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.

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.
