Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Koch now practices in Alpine, Texas. He performed my gallbladder surgery and was professional, courteous, answered all questions before and after the surgery, and was an excellent surgeon. I received superior care from Dr. Koch and from Big Bend Regional Medical Center in Alpine.

Did a poor job first surgery and had to go back in for another the same week. He tries to be friendly, but not a good surgeon.
