Dr. Kocs is knowledgeable. He explains the disease and treatment options clearly and concisely. His professional manners are a comfort as you receive alarming news. I cannot imagine a better doctor to have in this situation. I did repeat some questions, and he answered them patiently. I highly recommend him.

I have been under Dr. Kocs care for almost 15 years (with a 10 year break). He has been my provider thru 3 diagnosis of colon cancer. His bedside & office manner are fantastic. He listens to me with my questions/concerns then answers my questions. I appreciate everything Dr. Kocs has taken care of me over the years. I know he has my best interest in mind.

Wonderful, caring doctor!
Dr. Kocs has been my hematologist for 5 years and I feel cared for as an individual (not a number) at every appointment. He takes time to explain pertinent info, answer questions and immediately puts one at ease with his charming manner. I’ve recommended him to several friends and all agree that he is a rarity in this increasingly busy field.

Texas Oncology Experience
In October 2021 I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin Lymphoma by Dr. Kocs. He was very informative and knowledgeable about every question we asked . He immediately outlined what treatments I would receive. He was always very positive and reassuring about what we would encounter along the way. Before we even left the building Dr. Kocs and his staff guided through finance, schedulers, pharmacy and the infusion center as well as the lab area , it was thorough with no stone unturned. The initial visit was followed up with phone calls. Texas Oncology is one of the very few places that when you call you talk to real person who knows how to help and take care of your needs, none of this transferring you to someone else. This process gave us a lot of comfort.
