Dr. Ko took his time and made sure all my questions were answered to the best of his ability. Did a thorough physical exam, and ordered multiple tests to cover all bases. Office staff was also very nice, quick, and organized.

I went into see Dr. Jason Ko regarding a growth on my right thumb. When he walked in the examination room I was immediately relaxed by the openness of his communication. He examined my thumb, explained what he believed was the issue and set forth a treatment plan. He answered all my questions and put all of my fears to rest. I felt confident in him and his treatment plan.

Dr. Ko, in addition to being one of the top surgeons in his field, listens to any concerns the patients might have, makes sure the patient understands his response to questions, looks the patient in the eyes when they speak to him and you never feel he is in a rush or hurried. I cannot give Dr Ko enough accolades regarding patient/Dr communication in addition to his tremendous Surgeon skills!
