I had abdominoplasty with muscle repair & liposuction to the flanks performed by Dr Koch on 1/8/21 for $9,100. I visited his office twice prior to the surgery, reiterating my concern about ensuring the scar would be concealable. Postoperatively, I was stunned to discover the incision was not only above my bikini line, but also curled up both sides of my flanks. Besides asymmetrical, conspicuous scars, I still have a protruding lower abdomen, love handles, more laxity, stretch marks on my left side and dog ears. I was offered procedures, new to his office, to try to rectify my disappointing results. I requested a rep for the company be present and asked if he had experience performing these on dark skinned, black patients. After the appt was confirmed, I received a letter stating he would not move forward because he was offended by my "racist" comments. He felt my result was excellent, because I didn't suffer any medical or surgical complications. Wish I could upload my pics. Beware!

Dr.Koch and his staff are truly amazing!!!! Dr.Koch listened to my wants explained everything to to me multiple times. He also showed me EXACTLY what he would be doing for both my procedures. His staff is also the best! Everyone gets back to you in a timely fashion and they are always helpful no matter what the situation. They make you feel like they have known you forever. I highly recommend Dr.Koch and I would truly use him again.

I have a history of breast cancer and have had over 20 surgeries all with complications to follow. I wish I had known about Dr. Koch 15 surgeries ago because I wouldn’t be writing my story. My previous surgeon was neglectful and didn’t take the precautions to ensure a safe and healthy recovery. I am so grateful I have found Dr Koch through another surgeon. Dr Koch is by far the most gifted surgeon. He performed a 9.5 hour surgery that was complicated. I am so excited to finally have hope because of this amazing surgeon.

Dr, Koch approached me as if we are friends. His body language, smile,and easy manner put me at ease at this difficult time. He explained every thing he was going to do in the simplest way with drawings, a smile and holding my hand. He included my boyfriend through all my visits. He answered all of our questions, and concerns. I will recommend him to anyone. They will be satisfied with him and the magic he creates with his hands.

Terry-Ann Martin – Feb 29, 2020
I had an overall excellent experience with Dr. Koch from my initial consultation to my post surgical visits. I went to Dr. Koch after major weight loss surgery, and then major abdominal surgeries (not related to the weight loss surgery). Due to the excessive skin and the way my abdomen healed from the subsequent surgeries, I had to do something because of recurrent painful rashes, and not being able to find clothing that fit well. Dr. Koch explained everything at my first visit. He took his time, and drew diagrams. I had questions written down to ask him, but when he finished explaining, he had answered all of those questions and more. I was made to feel so comfortable, and at the end of this visit I knew I had made the right choice. The procedure went just as planned and I am extremely happy with the results. The staff was wonderful and receptive to any phone call I made. I highly recommend Dr. Koch for his professionalism and expertise.

Lisa, Westchester County, NY – Feb 19, 2020
Everyone and everything at dr. Koch’s office was amazing, from first visit to day of surgery and follow up visits after. All girls in office helpful and courteous. Dr Koch did great job with consult, surgery and follow up. Felt fine after surgery with rest at home followed drs orders and 6 weeks after was able to go back to gym with no problem. I would highly recommend dr. Koch. Looking forward to bikini season because of dr. Koch.

I had a prior procedure to remove a skin cancer from my ear. There was a defect after this procedure, but more worrisome, I thought there might be still skin cancer. I went to Dr Koch, and he repaired the defect and did biopsies to assure there was no longer any skin cancer. I cannot believe that now both of my ears look identical!

Carrie in Rock Tavern, NY – Sep 10, 2018
Decided on Dr Koch after reading reviews and consult. Everything was great until I had an issue after surgery. Initially felt everything would be addressed but as time went on was given the bums rush at follow up appts and was seen by PA at the last one at the office as the Dr wasn’t there. Then was totally forgotten about when he left the practice. Very disappointed.

I had my old breast implants replaced with Dr Koch. I was extremely nervous and worried because it seemed like a complicated procedure and I was expecting a long surgery and recovery, but contrary it could not have been any easier. The whole experience was very light and enjoyable, starting with his staff. They made me feel right at home-very kind and personable. Dr Koch is an amazing doctor. He made me feel at ease, took his time explaining the procedure, and now my new breasts are perfect.

I had my consult in July. Everything was laid out for me in detail, that is cost, plan of care, expectations etc. I scheduledfor September. The surgeon was phenomenal; still waiting to see my results but, his explanation and care in making sure I understood everything was exceptional. His surgical coordinator and PA are fantastic at their jobs and was available for me with every nuance of issue that I experienced. I haven't seen my result yet and I'm pretty sure it's going to be great. I'll upd

Dr. Koch seems knowledge and pleasant. Terrible patient schedule. Lack of follow up from phone calls. I waited 7 months to get a quote finalized. You have to constantly call and pray to get a answer. I almost forgot I was the customer.
