Awesome. Dr. Mark is highly personable, treated my injury right away, made me feel comfortable, offered his email for any questions I might have, and didn't even charge me that much! Highly satisfied.
Bery helpful. Will go back!
He was really great and very solution focused. I'm very pleased
Dr. Ko was very professional, on-time and took care of my issue in office on 3/24/16, including x-Ray and injection in a very painful foot joint. And also informed me of several options that might help my pain without another injection . He was fast and to the point. I was in and out in 20 minutes. I will continue seeing Dr. Ko and will recommend him to others. Thanks for a great first visit! Sean K.
very friendly, very knowledgeable, incredibly helpful.
Dr. Mark was prompt, efficient and courteous. I will return to his office again if needed.
Fantastic experience overall.
The actual visit was efficient and informative. Dr. Mark Co was able to advise me on three issues and treat a minor aliment in our 15 minutes together. I was disappointed that he didn't have more advice for preventive measures I could take for my relatively common issues and most of the treatments offered to me were expensive. Both receptionists on duty were pleasant but the intake process was disorganized (asked for paperwork and copays that had already been provided multiple times) and the wait to be seen was too long (40 minutes late for a 15 minute appointment).
I saw Dr. Co for a stress fracture a few years ago and he was awesome. I've just been diagnosed with diabetes and went today for my first diabetic foot check. I can't tell you how easy it is to talk to Dr. Co. He has such a pleasant demeanor and wonderful, warm bedside manner. I highly recommend Dr. Co.
He was very nice and professional.
Wish he were my primary physician!! Personable, caring, competent and conversational. Dr. Co took the time to diagnose, listen to my concerns and work with me to find a treatment plan. He's just great!!
I wanted to reserve my opinions of Dr. Co; however, after waiting approximately six months since first seeing him I feel obligated to speak up. Though the office was nice and I was able to see Dr. Co rather quickly, I felt like I got him at the end of the day (it was roughly around 1:30 or 2pm) and he did not look to happy. From the instant that I met with Dr. Co.; he appeared to be unbothered that (1) I was in his office or (2) the reasons I was in his office. Aside of giving me a orthopedic insert pamphlet, his services were useless. That said, I had to follow up with another doctor.
Dr. Co was very nice and personable. I went in for a possible toe fracture. A quick x-ray showed no visible fracture, but Dr. Co was able to answer my questions about activity and treatment. He told me I should really feel like I've turned the corner in 2 weeks, a diagnosis that was spot on. I will definitely go back for any future problems.
Couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Co. He came to see me on time, analyzed my bunions and planter fascitis right away, gave me exercises to do (no surgery!), and recommned orthotics.
Approachable and knowledgeable. I left learning a new way to mitigate my bunion.
I visited Dr. Co to have a second opinion after being unhappy with another podiatrist. Dr. Co was cool, calm, collected, and most importantly very knowledgeable. Go to him!
I love my podiatrist and his staff. DR. MARK is gentle and compassionate. I will always come back.
This is my 2nd procedure with dr co. He and his staff are knowledgable precise and caring
Considering I came in for an unpleasant procedure, it was a very pleasant experience. I felt extremely comfortable and would even say I enjoyed it. Great doctor.
Dr. Co gave me some very good advice and preferred lifestyle changes over expensive and invasive surgery. I appreciate that.
Dr. Co was great and professional all around. First, he was on time. Second, his office used ZocDoc check in so I didn't have to waste my time filling out forms at his office. They just printed out the ZocDoc info when I got there. Third, he was very quick in his analysis and diagnosis and clearly articulated the next steps for me. It was a pleasant and efficient experience. I will be going back!
Great experience, highly recommend!
Sensible recommendation for my issue. Glad to find a podiatrist who doesn't immediately want to pull out the scalpel and cut!
The Visit was awesome. I got written tips on how I should procede with my issue and will be seeing Dr. Co soon.
I was able to see Dr. Co quickly. His staff was personable and professional. Very happy with results.He made me a part of the treatment plan.
I had a fantastic first visit. Love the fact that I can make appts online! Dr. Co was awesome. His bedside manner is great and he explains things extremely well. I had two issues with my left foot and he took care of both during my first visit. I will definitely be returning to Dr. Co for any problems with my feet.
Good experience with the visit.
Dr. Co's receptionist was brusque and not very friendly or helpful. He diagnosed my problem very quickly and recommended several exercises that would help alleviate the trouble I was having.
