Dr. Koehler and his support staff are extremely conscientious and helpful.

This was a first time appointment with a new provider establishing a new Primary Care Physician, getting baseline health info, getting acquainted, etc. It also coincided with the doctor's appraisal regarding a severe injury I sustained the previous month.Dr. Koehler was thoughtful and thorough, asked questions, listened, replied with valuable observations and recommendations and made appropriate referrals. I felt seen, heard, respected, and attended to.

Is good

There is always some anxiety when seeing your doctor. Do I really need to see the doctor? Will an issue be found etc. However, I always come away from seeing Dr. Koehler and team, as being listened to, respected, and receiving thoughtful professional advice.

  Jul 11, 2023
Dr. Koehler is the best.

  Jun 9, 2023
Dr. Koehler has always listened to me, been very knowledgeable, but isn't afraid to admit when something is outside his wheelhouse. He seems to genuinely care and feel sympathetic to my health concerns. What more can I ask for in a provider?

  Jun 6, 2023
I have recommended this provider to others. I believe he is one of the best doctors I have ever had.

  Jun 5, 2023
As always, Dr Koehler and Chris treated me with respect and made sure I was up to date on my meds and sent my lab results in the same day. All positive with them!!!

  Jun 2, 2023
I love Dr. Koehler, he is the best doctor I've ever had. He better never leave this area, as I feel I'll never get another dr. as good as Dr. Koehler is.

  Jun 1, 2023
They called me back to tell me that there had been a cancellation and I could have an earlier appointment. This was very helpful as it turned out that my condition had worsened and I needed an earlier appointment if at all possible. So it worked out.

  Jun 1, 2023
Dr Koehler and his PA, Chris are the best medical team I've ever dealt with. I feel privileged to be a patient.

  May 30, 2023
I felt that I had more than sufficient time and had all of my questions answered - with options included. I admire his analytical skills and explanations to me of any change in medication.

  May 26, 2023
The doctors and medical assistants are kind and listen to your concerns. Very polite.

  May 23, 2023
I would like to see the physician and the nurse wear clinical clothing, i.e. Clean white jacket. When they are wearing clothing that they drove to work in, who knows what they have encountered. A clean jacket over street clothes is looks professional, identifies professional from clerical staff, and provides a small modicum of bacterial 'protection'.

  May 19, 2023
Very rude and hostile towards me. Told me not to schedule an appointment with him again as he was not my PCP. I tried to get an appointment with my PCP but was offered this appointment as an alternative

  May 11, 2023
Always feel listened to and given enough time to discuss any questions or concerns I have.

  Apr 24, 2023
I have never had a bad experience with anyone at the front desk - either on the phone or in person and they are not always the same people. They and the people responsible for training should be complemented!

  Apr 21, 2023
I am very happy with legacy always. Especially when you deal with a JIM of a young professional John Koehler is very much

  Apr 14, 2023

My primary dr. is always willing to answer questions, explain treatment or lab tests. He respects the fact I have some understanding of anatomy, physiology, etc. I feel I am a partner in this process.

Dr. Koehler and Chris are the best dr./asst. ever - They make me feel relaxed and treat me with respect and are professional.

  Feb 6, 2023
Overall, positive experience but I would like more time to discuss issues with my provider. 30 mins is too short. The time spent with him felt very rushed and I did not have a chance to discuss and understand all of the issues with my health.

  Feb 3, 2023
Dr. Koehler is exceptionally good. He is always focused on me personally and my over-all health needs, and I feel free to ask him any question.

  Feb 2, 2023
I tried to make an appt. with my PCP, on line, and got one about 1 1/2 months out. Decided to call his office to make one sooner, but I decided to see this doctor. (I have him once and had a very good experience.)

I saw my heart doctor [date removed]. I was in shock as a result of the visit. Dr. Koehler explained the results I could understand. It relieved my fear and anxiety. I appreciate the care I get from Legacy Medical Group.

  Dec 15, 2022
I have never had a disappointing experience with Dr Koehler! We disagree on one medical protocol but he listens and accepts my reasoning. He's professional and not condescending. Legacy is fortunate to have him as a staff physician and I am lucky to have a practitioner with impeccable character.

  Dec 12, 2022
Team is very efficient, but friendly. I saw his medical assistant first who asked the basic questions to prepare the doctor. Good practice.

  Dec 2, 2022
Excellent Dr and staff

  Dec 1, 2022
O waiting for anything

  Nov 28, 2022
The visit was professional and prompt. Given it was establishing a primary care provider and yearly physical, little to do with any long term problems was done other than discuss appointments that could be made in the future.

  Nov 22, 2022
Dr. Koehler is the best.

I have been seeing Dr. Koehler since [date removed], I feel well cared for, PLUS it is very helpful that we can joke with each other (at least he puts up with MY joking around). Dr Koehler, Chris, AND the entire staff all make my office visits very pleasant!!!
