Dr. Koder is everything we could ask for in a doctor. He gave us plenty of information answering questions we didn't even know we had. His bedside manner is phenomenal. You can tell he cares about each patient as well as his practice. Very professional, but caring. His expertise brought our daughter through her ear tubes/adenoid removal procedure quickly and without complication. Thank you, Dr. Koder.

Staff was amazing, Dr. Kosher was arrogant, condescending, and only wanted to talk about sinus surgery without explaining why. I would never go back.
