You feel very welcomed when you first walk in the office. The receptionists are all very friendly and professional. Dr. Koehler explains all procedures very well and in detail.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Koehler exceeded my expectations. He made me feel completely comfortable and that I could trust him and his nurses. I have seen some poor outcomes from other women that had the same procedures as me but they had different doctors. My final outcome is way better than I expected and honestly even better than I was hoping for. I'm very thankful I chose him to be my doctor.

The staff was very nice and Dr. K was awesome. I like that he did not make me feel like I needed more "work" than I needed. He was easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr Koehler and Denvia were both amazing! Kind, forthright, honest and compassionate. If it hadn't been for an emergency surgery my daughter is scheduled for, I would have followed through with my plans. I feel that the ambiance of the office and the seamless ness of scheduling and getting my wishes met, were fantastic. I never felt rushed, or unheard, and was allowed to ask as many questions as I needed to feel comfortable. I will highly recommend Dr. Koehler and his entire staff!

Breast Lift

The very first time I met with Dr. Koehler he made me feel comfortable and proud of all the hard work that I had done for myself. I had lost 77 pounds on my own through diet and exercise. Very hard work! But still wasn't happy with my body cause of all the loose skin... Dr. Koehler helped me feel complete and beautiful. He promised that I would wear a bikini... I absolutely did not believe him. I just bought 3 bikinis and they all look absolutely beautiful on me! Thank you Dr. Koehler!!! I will never be able to thank you enough for helping me complete the work that I started for myself! At the age of 50 I look and feel better than ever before in my life!!!

Tummy Tuck

I have had other procedures performed by Dr. Koehler and have been highly satisfied with the results. Therefore I am returning for one more procedure.
