I am so grateful that I have found Dr. Koval and his wonderful nurse Olivia. If it were not for them, I would still be in a great deal of pain. Because of their compassion and patience, I am able to live a normal life. Before them, I could barely get out of bed, but now, I am able to do more things, even walk a mile everyday.

Does not actually talk to the patient because he is so busy looking elsewhere. Does not answer questions he personally considers irrelevant to his needs. Very sad experiences with this doctor and his stressed out support staff. Poor overall care. If a doctor treats their staff badly and they show signs of being afraid to interact with the doctor, then the problem resides with the doctor. Koval's office manager and colleagues need to pay attention to the problems he causes for the business.

I am a picky patient and you can trust me when I tell you that I finally found an excellent rheumatologist! He is patient, a good listener and doesn't rush you out after seeing you a short while. I see mostly his trained medical assistant Heidi who doesn't make any decisions without getting Dr. Koval's final word and she too is absolutely good! Like Dr. Koval she has a trained listening ear, patient and I sense from her that she just cares. The entire group of doctors are excellent.

Great experience
Georgetown, TX |
Dr Koval was personable, patient and professional. He spent extra time with me to discuss recent surgery. I highly recommend him as a rheumatologist. The only difficulty is scheduling appointments, because he is very busy!
Austin, TX |
Terrible! And ridiculously expensive $199.48 for doing nothing more than bp, reflex test and 5 min conversation. Three years later they sent a bill for another $5.52 - who knows for what. Unreal!
