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

2/22/2017

FINALLY A DOCTOR WHO ACTUALLY LISTENS AND CARES. I HAVE ALREDY RECOMMENDED HIM TO OTHERS.

#1. *Dr. Koch

2/20/2017

Dr. Koch is friendly and honest, takes time to answer questions.

2/19/2017

Dr. Koch is My medical hero!

2/16/2017

*Dr. Koch "went above and beyond" the expected care by ordering medication I needed.

2/15/2017

dr. Kock and his staff are absolutely amazing

2/14/2017

Dr. Kock is a shinning example of an exceptional doctor (through the entire process).

1/11/2017

I would have liked to spend more time with *Dr. Koch but realize he was running behind on his schedule.

1/6/2017

Excellent experience - very helpful.

12/13/2016

I have had a very positive experience with Dr. Koch the last few visits, but this time he was rushed, and seemed completely unattentive to what I had to say and my concerns. He also forgot to look at my charts, and I had to remind him of conditions for which he was treating me, even when I reminded him and asked him. He was two hours late, and it seemed that he just wanted to catch up and get through everything as quickly as possible, with no concern for my time and needs.

10/17/2016

I not only recommend others to him, I beg them to go and let him at least try to help them or put them in touch with a team that can.

10/3/2016

Previous comments apply. I have great faith in Dr. Koch's ability to treat me, and to truly care about helping me get better.

9/26/2016

Dr. Koch utilizes a diagram of the body as he explains my physical problems and addresses each one in detail.

9/22/2016

Dr. Koch and Paula, his PA, were both very intelligent and well informed. They both spent ample time with me, and I feel like I am in very good hands.

9/21/2016

*Dr. Koch is the best!

9/20/2016

Fantastic doctor

9/20/2016

Excellent doctor! I am very fortunate to have him as my GI doctor. He explains things very well and is always kind & smiling.

9/6/2016

awesome as always !!!!!

9/5/2016

dr Koch is the best!!

8/31/2016

Dr. seemed to be rushed; however felt more time could have been spent-- very short visit that could have been a telephone review. At least he was friendly and saw me, This is a more on going problem than I realized it would be. Apparently this will continue to be recurring and not cured.

8/20/2016

I would recommend Dr. Koch to any of my family and friends. He is a very professional, Caring, Dr.

8/16/2016

Service and results this good, it's worth the drive from Charlotte.

8/1/2016

*Dr. Koch spent less than 5 min. with me. *Paula came in first to talk. Then she got *Dr. Koch. 5 min. later I was leaving. He never even looked me in the eyes!!!

7/31/2016

I have always heard what great bedside manner Dr. Koche has and it is true! He also has reputation of truly caring about his patients and spending lots of time during appointments talking with his patients - it is so true!

7/28/2016

*Dr. Koch is a wonderful doctor.

7/23/2016

I feel fortunate to have a knowledgeable medical team assisting me to enjoy my best quality of life and to help me manage a complex illness. Dr. Koch possesses the advanced skills, resources and knowledge of this disease. He is a good listener, and because of his advanced skill set, provides relevant advice and care.

7/20/2016

Dr. Koch usually spends a lot of time with you. This is the first appointment that I have had with him where he seemed to rush through the appointment and seemed to be edging closer and closer to the door. He's a phenomenal provider, but I think this was just probably an off-day for the clinic.

7/13/2016

It was a bit disconcerting to have a fellow come in before Dr. Koch, since we had waited such a long time to see him but that doctor did a good job. Dr. Koch was very behind schedule and it would have been nice to have him in a less rushed state of mind.

6/6/2016

Dr Koch is an excellent doctor!

6/1/2016

I am sure Dr. Koch is very knowledgeable but he completely disregarded my medical records and in fact questioned both the competence of my previous doctor and the diagnosis of the doctor who had identified the problem for which I was seeing him. He seemed more interested in impressing the attending resident who was there than in paying ANY attention to me. All in all, he did not seem interested in me, or my medical condition. I am not sure I am going to continue with him as I don't want to spend money on more tests only to have him continue to blow me off. My condition is unusual and my doctor back home could not figure it out, which is why I came to Wake Health. But instead, Dr. Koch treated me as if my home doctor and I were just making this up.

5/20/2016

Knowing how busy Dr. Koch is, I was very pleased that he did not rush me through his office. He took a lot of time to be sure I understood what was going on in my body and options open to help.

5/12/2016

Dr Koch was exceptional. He truly listened and cared. He took time to meet with me a second time even though it was not his clinic day. I really appreciate the time and care he took with me.

5/11/2016

I have recommended several people to this doctor because I like him so much.

5/3/2016

I would recommend them to anyone and have.
