I am so happy I found Dr. Kou. She was incredibly nice and thorough. I really liked and appreciated that she took the time to speak with me so in depth and to ensure she understood my history. Many doctors seem so transactional, my experience with her was the complete opposite and I could tell she is very passionate about her profession and patients. Thank you so much.

On point she is there for the patient not there to just push you out she spent time asking questions before she was ready to do the procedure. Dr Kou wanted to know how I was doing and what problems I was dealing with to make the right approach.
