Jersey City, NJ |
Horrible doctor. Did not record main symptom of the visit in his note but decided to blame me. He could have been more nice about it, instead trying to cover his mistake. Also, he constantly asked me to take Lexapro for anxiety although I politely declined to take as I felt there's no need. He even threatened that I'll be in ER every few months if I don't take the medicine. That's when I totally lost any respect as he was being a salesman not a doctor.

Excellent service, very friendly and professional staff make appointments especially easy to schedule. Dr. Ko was able to assist me in receiving a high-tech CPAP machine which reports my sleep habits so that he can see exactly how my treatments are going. I would highly recommend Dr. Ko to anyone suffering from sleep apnea.

After car accident & spine surgery, I was diagnosed with CRPS a difficult & chronic neurological pain condition. During 1st visit, Dr. Ko was very dismissive & insinuated that it was in my head even though I had multiple nocturnal convulsions during sleep that were filmed during a Video EEG. When I asked him Qs, Dr. Ko demonstrated lack of understanding & unpreparedness so I terminated visit. Finally getting good care after waited 2.5 yrs on waitg list to see CRPS expert Dr. Aradillas in Philly.

This Dr assumed A LOT. Did not take time to listen to the problems and discredited all of the problems I came in for- not sure why though. I didnt get a good vibe from him either. wasted my time. Seeing another Doctor.

Dr. Ko has a poor bedside manor. He does NOT listen well and jumped to conclusions about what I went to see him for in the first place. His demeanor is such, that I had to walk out because of the unprofessional behavior he exuded during my 1st time visit. I recommend that you do NOT see him. You will be frustrated beyond belief!!! You are better off somewhere else with a Dr. that does not act like a quack!!!
