The provider's fellows are always a pleasure to meet and discuss my health status and treatment plans. The provider (specialist) who has cared for me for several years is one of the best specialists who has cared for me. He imminently oversees the fellows (resident MD's in rotations) and has a wonderful working relationship with his entire staff. I have recommended this board certified specialty physician to others. His care and treatments have increased my QOL.

I feel as if Dr. Koh was in a rush to get out that day. Usually he will listen and be thoughtful about his responses to me. That day I felt as if he just needed to leave for some reason, and didn't really have time to answer my questions.

Dr. Koh is the best! He's always been there for me. Not only has he believed me, but he has always believed in me I don't know what I would do without him.

Always seemed to be in a hurry!! [...]

I feel questions about how the pain has changed my life is important. I have questions about what to do after the injections. I waited 8 months to spend 5 minutes with Dr Koh. What does this shot do? Should I change my life style even more or will it be okay to going back to how I use to be.

[...] Dr. Koh really seemed way too busy to sit and listen to me that day. Generally he will listen and answer my questions, but that day, he was more interested in taking care of the electronic health record, so I just didn't bother asking my questions of him. The resident gave me some answers [...]

Dr. Koh takes his time with me. We discuss pros n cons and anything else that can be done

I had the CT scan a year ago and this was the first doctor to take the time to discuss my issues in-depth. And explain them in a way that I could understand. He was kind and an excellent communicator.

Dr Koh was excellent. Always made me feel safe. Up front and honest.

I highly respect Dr. Koh and trust him completely

I have recommended Dr. Koh to others. He is excellent.

It was obvious that the office was very busy that day and Dr. Koh talked with me and spent the time needed, even though the appointment was short. I felt as if I had a plan when I left the office and there was a clear path at that time.
