Dr Koc has been wonderful. We have proved to be an unusual and difficult case, but the care we have received is wonderful. Calls are always answered, or returned within minutes, care with other Drs is coordinated, as much as possible. This is so helpful when you get a diagnosis of Stage 4 metastatic cancer. And Katie and Kelly in his office are amazing!
