      I injured my right wrist while training on a vehicle rollover simulator in Balad, Iraq in 2010. My condition did not improve when I came home and I was referred to Dr. Koch as being a top notch wrist surgeon. My experience with Dr. Koch is that she has lived up to her medical reputation when she correctly identified the problem and fixed it in surgery in 2011. I would recommend her to anyone. As a fellow veteran, Dr. Koch went above and beyond to help fill out paperwork necessary for the VA.

      This Dr seriously rocks. She is very thorough and listens and hears her patients. She is offering help where I could get none elsewhere. All Drs could learn from her.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
