Dr Koch is an excellent doctor. He explains things very well and always answers my questions. I am very fortunate to have him as my doctor.


You are very fortunate to have *Dr. Koch on your staff.


Dr. Koch was very respectful of my son who has a disability. He showed genuine care for his well being. He gave us hope for an ongoing illness of 3 years. His expertise in Gastroparesis was obvious and my son and I have trust in Dr. Koch.


Dr. Koch has been seeing me for my problem for several years and I think he is the best in Gastroenterology. It is the waiting time that gets me concerned each time I have an appointment. I do not want to say anything negative about Dr. Koch as a Doctor. The only negative thing is the long wait each time I have a designated appointment. It is hard to sit there so long each time I go.


Dr. Koch is awesome. I havd been his patient for 6 years now. i often xall him my hero. He is a pioneer in the field of digestive motility disorders. He is truly a blessing.


Earlier this year, Dr. Koche performed endoscope and colonoscopy. When he reviewed these, he referred me to a surgeon because he was concerned about a hernia. Subsequently, the hernia was incarcerated. The Wake Forest surgeon, repaired the large hernia with 3 smaller hernias surrounding it. I was later told that had the bowel become obstructed, it would have been a surgical emergency with the possibility of serious complications. So grateful for Dr. Koche. His concern and diagnostic skills probably saved my life. I would not have sought a surgical opinion on my own.


Exceptional physician!
