    Dr Kocol is a great doctor! Her assistant also is very nice, friendly and professional Dr Kocol is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain everything about your care and treatment. She is very friendly and I actually enjoy my appointment. I would recommend her and give her a A+ She is the best!

    Dr. Kocol was my pain management physician at Steadman Hawkins of the Carolinas in Greenville, SC. She is the most compassionate and responsive doctor I have ever had, and gave my life a quality I would not otherwise have had. I have not been able to find anyone yet that meets her superior care, which has been disappointing. You will love Dr. Kocol as she makes a difference in the quality of your health. She is a truly caring physician.

    This Dr spent seven minutes in the office with me, was rude and interrupted me while I spoke. Most importantly she completely MISDIAGNOSED me. DO NOT VISIT THIS DOCTOR.
    in Greenville, SC |
    This woman was rude and inconsiderate. I waited for 2 hours for my appointment and she spent less than 10 minutes with me. She interrupted me while I spoke, she didn't listen to what I said, I felt like she diagnosed me before she even came in the room. This woman is a terrible physician.

    Met with Dr Kocol about a shoulder problem. She gave me an injection and prescribed therapy. The injection helped me do the therapy which solved the problem. Everyone else I saw wanted to do surgery. Thanks Dr Kocol.

    Great very informative
    Dr. Kocol is fabulous!! My husband, son, & I are treated by Dr. Kocol for various ailments from back to knee to shoulder injuries. Above all she joins w/ each one of us working towards better health. Our input is required & she helps each of us develop a course of action towards healing. Knowledgeable w/ an awesome bedside manner, Dr. Kocol is a fabulous doctor! She works a day in Simpsonville & other days in Greenville. Appointments can take time waiting...but definitely worth the wait!!!

    Worst experience I've ever had with a doctor. She spent a total of about 3 minutes with me before walking out of room to get something. I thought she would return, but only her nurse did. I asked for the doctor to return so I could finish explaining my issue, but the nurse said the doctor had two other appointments and then had to go to the hospital. Bottom line is that I waited over an hour and got charged for a visit but never got to finish telling the doctor about my issue.
