Dr Koch performed a Lumbar Laminectomy on me it's been 2 weeks and I have had no back pain like I was having. My back is slightly sore around the surgical area which is expected but the massive, debilitating pain has stopped. I was walking the day after surgery and it gets a little better each...more

Very insensitive person. I will not be paying Dr. KOCH for his services. He actually made me physically upset. With no follow through what so ever. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.

I enjoyed enjoyed my visit with Dr Koch. I will always remember how he sat down and talked with me about my condition. He made me feel comfortable and valued. I felt as though he was interested in not only treating my symptoms but in a 100 percent recovery.
