Specialties

Dr. Mark Koch has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

its what u make it

Dr Koch is an excellent Dr. I think he shares his experience with his patients to make them feel less embarrassed. He has been there for me anytime I needed. Even helped me if I was about to run out by writing me enough just to get by. As I live a long way from his practice. I am now almost off the opiates. If it weren't for him, I would still be spending hundreds of dollars weekly on lortabs. If you wantto get off, really want to. He will help you. But its your responsibility to do it. He can give you the med. You have to do the work. He doesn't question you because he knows you aren't perfect. I hope things work for him. I did try another Dr who turned me down because he saw I was also getting tabs at the same time. I guess he doesn't know thats what addicts do and those are the ones who need the help. if left to that Dr. I never would have gotten well. Thanks Dr Kock

Somebody needs to do something!!!

I know for a fact that some of his patient's are prescribed suboxone in large quantities along with large doses of "Roxycontin." Kind of defeats the purpose of helping someone get off opiates. He also has knowledge of his patient's selling their medication and does nothing about it! These facts came from his own mouth about other patient's "confidential" information!!!! He's also sexually inappropriate with his female patients. He was fired from Tri-County for "writing a prescription for sex." As per Dr. Koch!!!!!!!

NO MORALS! DRUG PUSHER!

Dr. Koch doesnt mind sharing his own current experiences with illegal drugs with his patients. "everyone has a vice" dr. koch. that is so hopefull when people come seeking help to get off of drugs. Dr. Koch also prescribes drugs to patients so they can get high. for example providing drug addicts with a prescription for adderal so they can "legally" contiune to damage themselves and their families. it must be nice to be known as the dr. to go to when you need to get high. he should be ashamed of himself. i hope he knows the damage he is doing!
