I would like to recommend Dr. Koller for hernia repair. I am an older woman with several medical issues, but I also spent over 40 years in a nursing career and as a nurse practitioner. After two trips to the emergency room in severe pain, hernia repair was recommended. I visited two surgeons in my area, but did not feel comfortable in their plan of care. After further review, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Koller and I'm so glad I did. I was scheduled promptly for laparoscopic hernia repair and it went perfectly. No, I am not one of the patients going home having lunch by noon! I had three rather complex repairs and eight tiny incisions. But, by six weeks post-operation, I am doing great! Dr. Koller and staff were kind, personable, and I felt comfortable in his care. Recommend this practice!

How do you say Thank You. Six months ago Dr. Charles Koller repaired my left inguinal hernia. There are not too many things that take me down but that hernia did. My recovery has been great, I have no restrictions and I am back to a normal life. I spent a few months researching surgeons in Florida with Dr. Koller and his team regularly at the top of the list for hernia repair and general surgery. Thank you Dr Charles Koller for giving me my life back.

Dr. Kohler recently performed a laparoscopic bilateral hernia repair on me. I was very happy with the way I was treated by him and his entire staff. Dr Kohler and his office staff were polite, professional and timely. I have experienced literally no pain or discomfort since the operation and am ready to start light exercises 14 days since surgery . I highly recommend him.

In July 2018 Dr Koller did surgery on my incisional hernia. In January 2019, I informed his staff that the hernia was back and was refused treatment due to his office staff double billing my insurance. The hernia has now escaped the mesh installed and is now back and I’m stuck with no Dr to fix the issue created by a non effective surgery. It’s sad when money comes before health. My quality of life has been negatively impacted due to lack of empathy and care.

I was referred to Dr. Koller by my primary care physician for an emergency Gall Bladder removal surgery. Dr. Koller and his entire staff were kind and patient with me and my husband. They took the time to explain everything that was going to happen as well as what they found during the actual surgery. They answered all of my husbands questions and gave him great direction as to how to help me through recovery and what to expect. I would definitely recommend Dr. Koller and his staff.

Had umbilical hernia surgery with Dr. Koller. Clear, concise, competent, & confident, without being arrogant or abrupt. Doctors make me nervous in general, but never really had that feeling with him nor his staff, not once. If you're scared about surgery, I can tell you that I never once had any misgivings about him, his diagnosis, nor his capabilities. In terms of pain & aftercare, he had clear plans for my recovery that were in my best interest healthwise. I recommend him without reservation.

Dr. Koller and his entire team are absolutely wonderful! He performed laparoscopic bilateral hernia surgery on me in Nov 2018. Only had mild soreness post-op & did not need anything for pain. If you are considering hernia surgery, you must look at his repair technique versus other surgeons. He also removed two sebaceous cysts from my back in Dec 2018. I wish I had these procedures done many years earlier. I am very pleased with Dr. Koller and my results!

Dr Koller repaired my umbilical hernia with mesh laproscopically. He did an excellent job. I felt I was in very competent and caring hands. Recovery hasn’t been bad and my belly button look a great. I am ecstatic to have a flat stomach again after babies and I am so thankful. Highly recommend him and his team.

I had to wait for months for my insurance to kick in and was in alot of pain.. Dr Koller was very understanding and had me fixed for a double inguinal hernia within 24 hours of my initial consultation. Dr Koller and his team were reassuringly professional. His Lapriscopy technique is amazing. I have felt very little pain since the operation, and have had no need for pain meds at all. Not even an Ibuprofen. Could not ask for a better experience. Cannot Thank Dr Koller and his Team enough!!!

Dr Koller and his team are wonderful. He performed my laparoscopic surgery to remove my gallbladder as well as removed a cyst I had on my scalp. Both procedures went very smoothly and I have had wonderful results. Dr Koller and his PA were were knowledgeable about my conditions and were attentive to my needs and answered all my questions. His office staff is also highly professional and made the whole process very easy. I would highly recommend Dr Koller for any of your surgical needs!

Dr. Koller along with his medical and office staff are very professional, caring and friendly. I recently had laparoscopic surgery to remove my gallbladder performed at the University Surgery Center. The entire process was quick and seamless. My consult just two days after being referred by my physician. Surgery was then scheduled for just over a week after the consult (I could have had the surgery even sooner than that but I needed to get things in order). Highly recommend!
