    Doctor Koons is a thorough and compassionate professional. I have worked with Doctor Koons professionally as a Registered Nurse in Neuro Step-Down units and in ICU environments, since 1993. I became his patient secondary to a crushed spine injury, in 2005. He is always open to discussions about innovative treatment strategies, and his care is definitely patient centered...that is, he will listen to you. This is a rare quality these days.

    I had a spinal cord stemulator input for major pain. He did no follow ups and told me to have a good life. That was my last appointment with him 13 years ago. I have sever pain and stimular stopped working two years ago. I would not recommend my worst enemy to him.
