    I have seen Dr. Koenig twice. My experience was positive. He is professional and personable. I worked in a hospital for several years and now as I grow older I am seeing several doctors for my many diagnoses.. Dr. Koenig is a peach compared to some doctors I have sought treatment from. Doctors are people. It is a tremendous responsibility to consistently and constantly care for people, as well as keep up on research and treatment of disease. Thank you Dr. Koenig.
    He takes time to answer your questions and has lots of experience. I would highly recommend!

    Have only seen him once and he was super nice. Listened to everything I had to say and acted like he cared what I had to say.

    I have been with Dr. Koenig for a few years now. I was struggling to find a diagnosis and after months of no one being able to tell me what was wrong, I made an appointment with Dr. Koenig for a second opinion. Dr. Koenig came in and told me right away what was wrong. He settled my nerves, got me started on the right medications and all. I am doing so much better now. And I can't thank him enough for finally being the one to know and get me started on meds. He is caring and takes his time!!

    I've haven't been with Dr Koenig very long, but every time I've been he's been very kind, sympathetic, helpful, and answered all my questions. He always asks how I'm doing, and often asks about my family. He usually shares a little about himself also, which I find very nice. I've never had him rush my appointments and he's always been very thorough. I would recommend him to anyone.

    I have found Dr. Koenig to be a very kind and calm person. He quietly listens, thinks, then answers my questions - and he ALWAYS answers them. He has been a huge help to me and I would recommend him to anyone!

    Dr. Koenig is a good man, caring doctor. He listens to his patients. Highly recommend.

    Dr. Koenig has an extremely quiet and calm personality - I wonder if that is what other reviewers are interpreting as "cold and uncaring"? He quietly listens to any concerns I have, then usually even takes a moment before giving his thoughtful response. I've been going to him for YEARS and have always felt he was 3 steps ahead of my condition - getting me to the point where I could go off meds completely. 95% of the office staff is delightful (there's always 1 or 2, right?) Highly recommend!

    Will never go back to this doctor . Has no personality and is very unsympathetic . Very arrogant and pompus . He had nothing to offer . I have never left an unkind review of any doctor before until now . I certainly do not recommend him to anyone ! Seems to be very pleased with himself and he really does not like you asking him any questions . He is the worst doctor I have ever met . He certaily has no compassion . Do not send anyone you care about to him . Very cold and uncaring .

    My treatment was going along fine for about 8 months and then the pain came back. I called and left a message, the recording said they would get back to me in 24 to 48 hours. I have never had to wait that long for a response and it was 48 hours! They told me to come in and get lab work done, so I called the lab and they had no idea I was to come it. It was a total of 2 weeks before the nurse called with Dr. Koenig's response, and the whole time I was in pain. Looking for a new doctor!

    Had very bad reaction from treatment I have received . Left two massages and talked to front desk personally, she promised that doctor will be calling me to advice what to do... Nobody called me and office closed for today. Very poor customer service!!!
    Office staff is rude and inattentive if you can even get a live person on the phone. Don't have any trust in Dr. Koenig's care for my loved one. Will be finding a new doctor for her. EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL. Saint Luke's Hospital should be ashamed for allowing him to practice at their facilities. Rating of one star is way too many, should have the option for a big fat zero.

    Rude staff when trying to make a new patient appointment. Do not recommend this office.

    Dr. Koenig is not a doctor I want to trust with my care. My last appt I was kept waiting for over 2 hrs. He also did not acknowledge health concerns when I voiced them. Did not listen to the reactions that I was having to medications. Felt that he was very unprofessional sharing rude comments about his wife. I am there for my care and my care alone. Did not feel that my care was even at the top of his concerns. Very rude. Will not return and will not recommend to anyone I know. Very disappointed
