Dr. William D Ko has the following 2 specialties
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

Dr. Ko epitomizes the doctor that you want caring for you. He is concerned, caring , professional, genuine, and an expert. He puts the patient at ease, and understands the patient. He takes the time to explain your concerns. It is difficult to find a doctor like Dr. Ko. He is highly recommended and helped me through a very difficult time.He is now in New Jersey and that is great!
Dr. Ko is the very best doctor you could ever ask for. However, the front desk staff needs to be more professional and pay close attention to what they are doing. Perhaps they need to have lessons on how to connect with the patients and how to handle billing and filling out the forms so that the patients who have to pay "upfront" because this office is out of network, needs to learn what to do and to be careful, since each time I have gone to see Dr. Ko, they have not gotten the billing correct yet. They do know how to run your credit card and take full payment.
Since this February 04, 2010 comment, Dr. Ko currently works in Teaneck, New Jersey at Holy Name Medical Center's Breast Center, and is an in network provider in many medical insurance plans.
