Dr. Koch is my hero. I have been with him for years and he treats my digestive motility disorders with great care and compassion. A leader in this field of medicine where very few in the medical field understand the trials and tribulations of having a digestive motility disorder, having him as my doctor is a blessing.

I a blessed with the BEST gastroparesis doctor EVER.he is a Top 100 Doctor & I've been feeling in more pain and even in some different areas since Sunday and had as much nausea as usual since the balloon dialation procedure last Thursday. I called his nurse to ask her about it and she said she would ask him and then call me back. Despite the fact the he is a gastroparesis expert that has people around the country coming to him, HE actually took the time to call back himself

The visit I had was great and he is researching the condition I have, which most doctors brushed it off but he took the time to understand what I was going through and didn't think any of it was made up. My office visit with him was an hour long he really knows his stuff and asks you in depth questions to fully analyze your situation. He is the best gastroenterologist I have had so far.

appointment was a total waste of time - instead of listening to the problem and trying to determine a cause - his philosophy was drugs to cover up the problem and create an entire different set of problems.
