Patient Comments (5)
in Big Lake |
A medical condition sent me to the emergency room in early June. A subsequent CT scan indicated I needed a surgeon. Dr. Ko quickly came and saw me and told me he would help and care for me, which he did. He was very caring and concerned. I'm on the road to recovery thanks to Dr. Ko!

Dr. Ko is an amazing doctor! I've seen him twice now for two different medical conditions and both times he has been the most caring and knowledgeable doctor I could've been so fortunate to have treat/care for me. He has an impeccable bedside manner and I so appreciate the time he takes to explain everything to me that he'll be doing to make a situation better for me. He also takes the time to call his patients after a procedure to ensure that they're doing well (I can attest to this).
in Palmer, AK |
Dr Ko performed a Nissen fundoplication. He left esophagus scarred and unable to swallow for almost a month. He did another to balloon out my esophagus, which gave little improvement and recommended yet another. It has been over a year. I haven't had a single meal that doesn't leave choking with food stuck in my esophagus. His follow up and care for his patients is very poor. I am left with lifetime of pain and will never enjoy a meal again.

I have seen Dr. Ko several times now, and he has been amazing. He is very patient and kind, and clearly cares about the patient. He's really good at what he does. I really could not be happier. Finding a doctor can be so hard sometimes but if everyone was like Dr. Ko, finding a great doctor would be easy. Highly recommend!

Dr. Ko saved my life. I can't thank him enough.
