Patient Comments (5)
Lafayette, LA |
Dr. Koch is the best! I had a very, very difficult case of cataracts and my procedures were flawless. He is worth the wait.
in Katy, TX |
I never write reviews so this is my first. I'm writing because I was so impressed with my surgery and care from Dr. Koch and Dr. Houser. I can imagine that seeing patients and doing surgery day after day becomes routine. However, being a patient, this could be the first time seeing a doctor and the patient, me, knows NOTHING. Both doctors took the time to explain everything to my husband and I and ended the visit with "do you have any other questions for me?" Can't ask for anything more.

Great doctor perfect surgeon better person accommodating staff

Very impatient and rude

Dr. Koch is warm and knowledgeable, as well as wise and practical. I would highly recommend him and his office. He has an efficient office operation with very nice staff and was worth waiting for. I went to him for a second opinion, and he saved me thousands of dollars for my two cataract surgeries that restored my vision (by using good lens implants that were covered by insurance, and by deferring unnecessary treatment for my keratoconus).
