Worked a little to fast

August 22, 2017

Very satisfied with all staff and physicians, including resident. Care was excellent.

July 25, 2017

The resident that was helping Dr. Koch was very helpful along with Dr.Koch, they were very helpful with my skincare concerns!

July 18, 2017

She is a very positive, caring Doctor. I like her very much and my daughter does too.

July 11, 2017

This was our first experience with Dr. Koch. I was impressed that she took the time to take skin culture and examine under the microscope quickly in order to aid in her diagnosis and treatment. She was very friendly, seemed genuinely concerned, and took her time. I would highly recommend her and she will definitely be my "go to" dermatologist for my kids from now on.

July 10, 2017

I didn't feel the doctor was thorough enough. She was completing a skin scan and didn't check my child's scalp until I mentioned it.

July 10, 2017

very friendly and made sure we understood her diagnosis ad treatment before we left

June 29, 2017

Both Dr. Koch and Dr. Hoot were excellent at diagnosing and suggesting treatment options for my daughter's condition. They were extremely friendly and instilled confidence in my decision to choose UPMC Dermatology for my daughter's care.

June 23, 2017

June 16, 2017

the visit was horrible and frustrating. they always mispronounce my daughters name. a student doctor did the initial screen, bit didnt ask our permission. dr koch herself was infamiliar with my kids history there. nothing was solved, we are still playin a waiting game. the whole visit could have been done over the phone. huge waste of gas for me. i hope they actually follow thru with getting my kid the care she needs.
