    I've seen many doctors since I got sick a few years ago. My illnesses are invisible and cause me a lot of pain. I just turned 25 and almost every doctor I talk with about pain just assumes I'm faking for drugs. It got so bad that even the ER wouldn't treat me. Pain management was my last resort and I was so scared but never once did I feel judged. I'm not sure what I expected but Dr. Ko surpassed it. I wish I'd had more time with him but other than that, I am truly thankful.

    I been patient of Dr Ko for years. Lately Dr Ko has seemed angry/annoyed with his job.Pain has been worsethe past few months. Repeated visits informing doctor of pain level increase resulting in a poorer quality of life.He has treated me like a pill junkie would not let me speak. I have always been medication compliant, been on same meds & doses for over 3 years. I am not asking for anything but help manage my pain better. He does not seem to care & just wants more $pushing expensive injections!

    Dr. Ko is The most understanding and compassionate doctor I have ever had in referance to my injury and pain. Wait I'll take that back, He is the best Dr. I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, PERIOD. He takes the time to listen to me, askes how I am doing mentally as well as phsically. He is very understanding as far as I had lost my job and insurance. He did everything possible to give me samples and picked out the least expensive medicine possible. The ABSOLUTE BEST.
