I'm glad to see a picture of Dr. Koval...I saw him the first time I went; however, I don't remember seeing him since...at least, the last two years. I was happy with the lady who saw me; however...

My mother, who is now in her seventies, has been with Dr. Koval since 2012. I wish she had found him sooner. Dr. Koval, and his lovely nurse, Olivia, listen. Since she has been with Dr. Koval, her health and energy has improved immensely. She still cooks for her adult children and after school, she takes care of grand-daughter. Too often I have seen doctors treat their elderly patients with impatience. He takes the time to listens, treats her with respect.

I had my first visit with him yesterday & I was very pleased. He was very personable & listened to me. I didn’t feel rushed at all. He also was very mindful about my self pay status. He make you feel like a person & shows he actually cares about me getting better. That’s very refreshing. That’s becoming a rare trait these days. I highly recommend Dr Koval.

I'm not sure if any of this is Koval's fault personally or just the bureaucracy of Tx Ortho around him, but I left his care a couple years ago after a bad situation involving being denied treatment due to their office's mistakes and the unwillingness of Koval and/or his staff to work with me to remedy these mistakes and get back on my medication. Decided I did not want to put up with missing several months of pain just to continue seeing someone who was never great to begin with.

Great experience with my favorite doctor! Excellent doctor-patient relationship for many years. He really understands autoimmune illness and can relate to me. If you have a real chronic disease, this is the doctor for you.

Dr. Koval and his PA have always shown an interest in my case and answer my questions. I receive complete explanations of lab results and quick responses concerning the prescribed medication.

Dr Koval is an excellent, caring physician. I have been his patient for three years now for Lupus (SLE). He takes time to listen and will advise patients by going over every detail of treatment. Dr Koval and the Texas Orthopedic doctors are the best!

I never leave reviews like this but felt compelled to do so since we are having to go to another Rheumatologist since Dr. Koval didn't listen & help us. On the day of our visit we were called to see if we could come in earlier b/c he needed to leave early-we could not change our time. He seemed in a hurry during the visit & barely listened to my daughter's symptoms. She is still having the same issues & same lab results are coming back-which he said was nothing to worry about...She has Lupus!

Dr. Koval was extremely pleasant and thorough with my daughter’s exam. She is just under 18 where a disease process presents differently in youth vs. adult. He spent plenty of time with us, considering all aspects of her symptoms and history. I highly recommend him!
