I have been in the VA system since 1982, with multiple disabilities . I have lived in 6 regions during these years. I cannot count the number of drs & other health professionals I have seen trying to resolve my pain management. By far Dr.Kois is the best, because he is whole person, body mind & spirit. The VA is a difficult system for women veterans. We are only 6 percent, a boil on the butt of an elephant the Secretary has to deal with everyday. These systems are all top heavy with administrators. Without enough direct medical providers , the records are beautiful, but the patient died three weeks ago. This is a very serious problem for we veterans. Additionally, as women veterans, we often experience difficulties receiving care in a system designed primarly for men. We are sometimes traumatized for the first time in vas, or retraumatized , once we get there. I have had trhese incidents & experiences too often. For me, Dr Kois's office & those who work for him, or an oasis. I feel respected, treated as a whole person, & safe. Safety for me as a survivor of MST & multiple physical conditions, is paramount. Sometimes, when I am very discouraged by the bad experiences I am having in parts of the clinic, or am afraid of past experiences I have had in other clinics & hospitals in the past repeating themselves, I remember there are a few truly patient centric caregivers left. Dr. Cois is one of those. During a discouraging day at the clinc, I just go & sit near his office, even when I do not have an appointment. I feel safe, & I then have the courage to keep coming back. His care for us as patients shows me he truly loves us. By my own experience over the years, people like DR Kois are rare, & a treasure in the VAMC.
As a result of this persons horrible and unprofessional treatment I moved to another VA, on DAY 1 I requested and was granted an MRI of both knees. My new doctor was actually surprised that it was denied in the first place. Fluid was found to be present on both. The test that was denied to me by this person, who should have no say in ANY medical procedures or tests AT ALL who determined I was faking 15 years of pain after his 15 minutes of evaluation, who further advised against any testing for "fear a false positive would give me reason to continue faking it." REALLY should consider retirement, or at the very least a refresher course on the Hippocratic oath. I cannot stress this enough, to anyone who may be reading this review, if you are sent to this person you would be safer in the hands of a first year veterinary student. I am finally getting ACTUAL treatment as opposed to condemnation and ridicule. If I could rate him in negative stars I would.
I first met Dr Kois and wasn't sure he was the doctor. If you are looking for appearence first, he is not your guy. However if you want a Doctor that cares and is not on an ego trip....and is good at what he does, Kois is the Doctor for you. I like him, his methods and his demeanor. Great Doctor and Good Guy!
