How was your experience with the doctor?Dr.Koul is the funniest, sweetest, and most thorough doctor ever!! This was my first visit to her office for a regular annual, and she and her staff were the kindest ever! She's also great at making sure everything gets tested for that "just in case" moment, which really put me at ease. Dr. Koul also has the greatest beside manner, and she answered all of my questions about trying to conceive in the future with the kindest & most insightful advice. Definitely a keeper!!! ??????

How was your experience with the doctor?She is definitely the first doctor I've had as a young adult figuring things out on my own. She was very patient she explains to me all of my questions or concerns in great detail. She's very caring for her patients and she's funny too. Her wait times are short & when she sees you she gives u her full attention, shes fast & thorough. She won me over my first appointment.

How was your experience with the doctor?Very excellent doctor, patient, explains things so they are easily understandable. There’s a reason why so many clients wait to see her and that’s because she’s excellent at what she does so don’t get bothered by waiting a few extra minutes, she’s worth it.

How was your experience with the doctor?The waiting time was super long but it was due to an emergency that the doctor needed to assist with. Afterwards, all the staff and the doctor apologized for the delay and everything went fine. The doctor is very humble and professional, she makes you feel super comfortable and she is straight to the point. I would definitely recommend her and I will personally go back to her for further consultations.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Koul is absolutely wonderful and so is her assistant that took my weight and blood pressure. However, the ladies behind the desk were not very good. They did not make eye contact with me when I walked up to the desk. They did not ask me any questions. I proceeded to sign in ... waited a moment and then had to say, "excuse me, is there any paperwork I should be filling out as a new patient?" And then I was handed the forms as if it was an afterthought. I am not saying that they were totally rude since they seemed distracted with other things, but they seemed very nonchalant about their jobs and were not very good at multi-tasking. The patient is what keeps a medical practice in business and an unwelcoming staff is off-putting to any patient/customer.

How was your experience with the doctor?Went to Dr.Koul for an Annual, she said she was going to call me back in 2-3 weeks with results and I didn't need to schedule another appointment. Waited 4 weeks and heard nothing, have called the office 3x and keep getting the receptionist that says she'll tell Dr.Koul and promise to call me back that same day yet I've gotten no calls back...Very surprised because they seemed more professional than this.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Koul has a great bedside manner very professional, but the office is very very old and it felt like I was someone's home but if you like that sort of thing that's good. The bad thing is that I waited for over an hour to be seen. I heard from people sitting in the waiting room that if you want to be seen quick to make the first apt she has and be on time.
