Yes I would. Dr. Kocs and his team of medical personnel are the greatest and are very caring when it comes to the care of his patients. When you arrive for your visit you are welcomed by whoever is sitting at the desk and most of the time they already know your nams.

Dr. Kocs carefully reviews pt. charts/medical history prior to all visits and works diligently to individualize treatment accordingly. Other clinic employees....such as Rachel Abbott, Jennifer Hill, Elsa Vronka, Emily Reyes, and receptionists Lorna and Jennifer... do an excellent job of sensitively and thoughtfully helping patients, both during and outside their visits. Understandably, the clinic occasionally experiences difficulty with communications between and among the different departments, and call center employees are desperately in need of better training.

Dr. Kocs has been one of the best doctors to explain his diagnosis and treatment of the Lymphoma for my husband the past 4 yrs. He is very good to tell us what to expect during the treatment. He has his Nurses check on my husband and let us know what to do when he has a problem. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a cancer doctor. dr. Kocs

Dr Koss is friendly and truly caring. Instead of adding medication he tries to eliminate, but not at my detriment, only if it is in my best interest.

I was a breast cancer patient under remission now since 3 years. Dr. Kocs has been a great moral support during the treatments and during every follow-up visit. His kind supportive words have given me strength and support to fight against cancer and stay positive. From setting up initial chemotherapy sessions to after care office visit appointments, his team has done an excellent work which made me focus on myself more than worrying about when, and how questions. I would highly recommend taking his opinion and get to know his positive approach to get through the hard times for you or your loved ones. Thanks to him and his team, I am there for my family.
