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.

outstanding as well as Paula Stuart his P A

5/8/2017

Dr. Koch is most professional, knowledgeable, cares, and I felt he was interested in my health issue.

5/8/2017

The care provider talked a little too fast. I didn't get an option on my treatment, he just ordered testing, left the room & let his assistant do all the talking and explaining.

4/11/2017

I have had a complex digestive disease for many years. While there is no cure for this illness, my quality of life has been good because of my Wake Forest primary care physician and Dr. Koch. Very grateful for his knowledge.

3/27/2017

I feel like he really cares about figuring out what is wrong with me instead of trying to just throw medicine at me after a few normal tests like my last specialist did. You have no idea how happy I was too find a doctor that wasn't just going to give up on me like my last one.

3/4/2017

Highly recommend to family and friends.

3/2/2017

My care provider is the best, always lessen and ask ?'s.

3/1/2017

Dr. Koch is very knowledgeable about my condition. So much so, that I travel 4 hours to see him. I just wished the time I spend with him had been longer. An 8 minute consultation does not give much time for addressing concerns or ask questions.

2/27/2017

Just completely impressed. I'm not easy to impress. Have had so many negative experiences with health care providers in general over the last several years. I'm excited and hopeful for the first time in a long time.

2/25/2017

Best
