The doctor seemed very knowledgeable, but explained things very quickly and used some medical terms that he did not explain. He seemed like he was in a hurry and needed to get on to the next patient. He did soend some time with us, but not as much as I felt we needed. He, of course, is very familiar with our daughters diagnosis, but we aren't. He honestly did seem to care, but at the same time was slightly dismissive because I think to him her diagnosis wasn't too serious. However, as I said before, he seems very knowledgeable and did seem to care and we will be coming back to see him for our daughters check ups. Im sure we will learn more as we go along.
*Dr. Koman & intern & nurse PA asst. were their at this appointment, all very courteous & friendly. Having surgery on right pinky finger on 10/31/17 - I have a lot of confidence in *Dr. Koman - enough to drink 2 1/2 hrs. for this hand surgery -
My only is worry is if *Dr. Koman ever retires or leaves. He has helped both of my son's so much.
I recommend *Dr. Koman to everyone! He is the best!
he is the best on the east coast
*Dr. Koman is outstanding!
Yes, *Dr. Koman has a stellar reputation. What impresses me more is his calm and caring demeanor and his availability to his patients. I appreciate his confidence and his dry sense of humor! I trust him completely. I've trusted him with my son's care for more than 13 years. I am beyond grateful for all that he has done for my son and for me. He will always have my admiration respect, and appreciation.
