Dr. Koenig was referred to me by a friend who has been seeing him for 10 years, and he saved her life twice. I took my Dad in for lung cancer recently. The staff got him scheduled promptly. Everyone was nice and very professional. he had all of my dad's test results and sat down with each page and went over them with us. He explained all of his options. He has to get surgery so he referred him to one. He didn't have them wait to call me, he had his office contact them right away and get him scheduled while we were in the office. He is excellent.

Iron deficiency. I was told to just deal with it and things should even out when I go through menopause, which should be 3-8 years away. Did not seem to care about my other symptoms.

Dr. had a bad attitude for the 15 mins I saw him. Very brief exam.Schudled blood&a expensive test w/o explanation. I had him return to the room to ask questions.I called a week after due to still worsening symptoms for advise.Got a call the next day told to see my P.C.P. Nurse called again said my tests were sent to my P.C.P. She gave me the results and said she mailed to me. Told me to keep my appt with this Dr.for results. I cancelled.
