"What an amazing experience!"
"A GREAT DOCTOR - Dr. Koch is everything you'd want in a doctor. He knows his stuff (ESPECIALLY NOSES) and takes excellent care of the patient. His staff as well. Dr. Koch performed a revision on me two weeks ago. He was the most patient and down to earth doctor I have met. I had consultations with four of the other top doctors selected him. My surgery was extremely complicated because I also had two nasal fractures which made my nose extremely crooked. I am so happy I went with him. It looked great even the day the cast was removed. He went above and beyond and exceeded any expectations I had set. He called me several times before surgery to check in, gave me a kit to use, and spent an hour with me before discussing everything. He was kind, gracious, and confident throughout the entire process. I researched for months before jumping into this, and Dr. Koch was the best decision I made. He knows what he is doing and gives you his honest opinion, and does a really professional threatment because he loves what he does. I couldn't have asked for more. Thanks to Dr. Koch and recommendations to anyone out there considering consult (and then surgery with this young doctor)."
"Great! - Dr. Koch and his staff are wonderful! They made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process of having surgery. His coordinator Vonyee and his PA Courtney are great! He is very lucky to have such a stellar team. My results are fantastic. New breasts complete. Next on my agenda will be a new tummy!"
"Five Stars - I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. KOCH. HE IS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND EXTREMELY COMPETENT."
"Excellent Experience! - Dr. Koch and his staff were wonderful!! I had cosmetic breast surgery in the Tarrytown facility. I lost a lot of weight and wanted to get rid of my pancake breasts so I decided to go for a augmentation with implants. The morning of surgery the surgical staff was welcoming and friendly. My result is EXCELLENT!!! Very pleases with my whole experience."
