Waited for over an hour to be seen. They also only take cash which in my mind is extremely old school. I had to run to a corner store to get cash. Don’t think I’ll come back. The office itself isnot very nice and the wait is outrageous. She was very friendly for the 5 minutes i met her.

Great doctor. Very professional and knowledgeable. Wait times can be long, depending on when your appointment time is, but she’s definitely one of the best OB-GYNs I’ve visited.

The waiting time was super long but it was due to an emergency that the doctor needed to assist with. Afterwards, all the staff and the doctor apologized for the delay and everything went fine. The doctor is very humble andprofessional, she makes you feel super comfortable and she is straight to the point. I would definitely recommend her and I will personally go back to her for further consultations.

She is excellent. She makes the patient so comfortable, and doesn't mince words or confuse the patient. Takes time to understand the problem and address it. Good balance of friendly and professional.

Dr. Koul is absolutely wonderful and so is her assistant that took my weight and blood pressure. However, the ladies behind the desk were not very good. They did not make eye contact with me when I walked up to thedesk. They did not ask me any questions. I proceeded to sign in ... waited a moment and then had to say, "excuse me, is there any paperwork I should be filling out as a new patient?" And then I was handed the forms as if it was an afterthought. I am not saying that they were totally rude since they seemed distracted with other things, but they seemed very nonchalant about their jobs and were not very good at multi-tasking. The patient is what keeps a medical practice in business and an unwelcoming staff is off-putting to any patient/customer.

Dr. Koul herself is a very nice doctor with good bedside manner. However, her office administration is just really bad. There was 1 day when she said she would call me back in 15 minutes with some important information and Iwas unable to hear from her for over a day. Her staff also does not seem to be in sync with each other as I had someone call me to confirm an appointment I no longer needed for an 8 week check up- which in itself was so distressing- that I had already previously cancelled. To cancel that appointment was also a hassle as I had to FAX a note on a Friday within the time frame of cancelling without penalty because their phone system was not working that ENTIRE day since I did not want to risk being charged. The office also does not have an email address or account, which I find very inconvenient in today's healthcare industry. They only have access to a fax machine 2 or 3 days a week- if you need something like a prescription faxed over right away, you are out of luck. I am sorry to have had such a bad experience considering I was expecting a more satisfying one based on her reviews.

She was very nice & informative.. you can just tell she was trying to get me in & out after waiting almost 2 hours. She gave me numerous ways to get in touch with her which is very much appreciated sincethis is my first child. She also let me know she would be here throughout my pregnancy which is greatly appreciated. Overall I enjoyed my experience I just wish it wasn't so rushed

Went to Dr.Koul for an Annual, she said she was going to call me back in 2-3 weeks with results and I didn't need to schedule another appointment. Waited 4 weeks and heard nothing, have called the office 3x and keepgetting the receptionist that says she'll tell Dr.Koul and promise to call me back that same day yet I've gotten no calls back...Very surprised because they seemed more professional than this.

Dr Koul has a great bedside manner very professional, but the office is very very old and it felt like I was someone's home but if you like that sort of thing that's good. The bad thing is that I waitedfor over an hour to be seen. I heard from people sitting in the waiting room that if you want to be seen quick to make the first apt she has and be on time.

The wait is long, but the doctor was very thorough. Although she was on a time limit, she was careful to review any potential issues that I had and talked with me in detail about my medical history. Excellent bedside manner,laid back, and very professional. I will definitely return, but make sure to get the earliest appointment in the day.
