Excellent doctor and practice

Our son had a pyeloolasty that was not successful, from a different doctor. We met Dr Koh and he recommends surgery which preserved his kidney function. I have no doubt that Dr Koh saved that remaining kidney function.

I recommend a second opinion

I actually think Dr. Koh was a nice person and I am sure is a good doctor. The main issue that I had is that he was extremely pushy to have my daughter have surgery. He kept recommending robotic surgery for her and really diid not provide any other options. I was a bit put off by this so I went to see another doctor who recommended no surgery and said a lot of times this condition fixes itself. That was 6 months ago and she is doing amazing! Again, if he recommends surgery I would seek another opinion first
