I've been with Dr. Kohler for the past 6 years. He is an excellent professional, knowledgeable, committed to his career and always ready to help, no matter how busy he is. The staff and his Nurse Peggy are very kind, attentive and caring. I have a severe case of asthma but he never stopped trying new options and right now, I feel much better.
