Dr Koch has an admirable resume. However, his use of improper medication regimen or even suggesting one has destroyed our lives.

Rick is the best cardiologist in the US. He saved my life when I had a TIA in 2008. He discovered that I had an astral septal defect. He discovered that I had factor v Leyden and has been my cardiologist since 2008. He is a great doctor and friend. You will be privileged to know him and have him as your doctor.
