My toddler and I waited for almost an hour to be seen. I dreaded being in the waiting room along with the other patients due to the worldwide pandemic and on top of that the long waiting time didn't help at all. No one ( staff or doctor) even acknowledged that we waited for too long. The staff seemed like it is just normal to be waiting for almost an hour from my toddler's appointment. As professionals, they should take pride of their services and do better.

I’ve just completed 4 years of allergy treatment with Dr. Koder and cannot be more satisfied. This treatment has changed my life. I was very sick with multiple sinus infections a year and terrible allergy symptoms including watery eyes, pouring nasal drainage, and sneezing all to the point of complete lack of energy after working in the yard, being at a ballgame or moving things in the attic. I was taking daily medications and just sick of being sick. He just discontinued my therapy and told me to come back if I ever have symptoms again. I’m excited about not being sick and enjoying the outdoors. I did 2 years of allergy injections but started having reactions so switched over the the sublingual allergy drops. I didn’t have any symptoms with the drops. I highly recommend him as he was very thorough in explaining all things allergy to me and always giving extra tips on prevention.

If you want to wait for 3 weeks for an appointment only to come in and wait 2 hours past your appointment time before being seen then this is the place for you! This place and Koder are terrible and the only time you’ll get seen quickly is when they are under review. Been here twice and I will never be back.

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.
