James Koehler, MD Reviews (450)

Tummy Tuck

I appreciated the open honest communication.

Breast Augmentation

[Why were you highly satisfied?] The personal attention from the very start that continued to the very end. That attention put me at a comfortable ease.

Breast Augmentation

Very happy with my results! The staff and Dr. Koehler are amazing!

Breast Implant Removal

Friendly staff, I felt I was well taken care of.

Eyelid Surgery

satisfied with my experience from start to finish. I love Dr. K's entire staff.

Breast Reduction

I'm about 3 months post op from a breast reduction, breast lift, tummy tuck and lipo and couldn't be happier with my results! From beginning to end Dr. Koehler and his team have made me not only feel comfortable, but confident that they had my best interest at heart. I am from the Destin/Pensacola area and after much research I decided to go with Dr. Koehler. I have had friends who have had similar surgeries with other doctors in my area that experienced extreme discomfort and pain after. Not me! Yay! Dr. Koehler had me moving and feeling well almost immediately after surgery, of course with limited activities. By 8 weeks post op I was back to full activity including full on workout routines. Scarring was probably one of my biggest concerns prior to surgery, but my scarring is progressing really well! With a breast reduction and lift I was definitely concerned on how I was needing to be cut (around the nipple and then an anchor cut), but my scarring is nearly gone! Now, the scarring from my tummy tuck is taking a little longer, but that is expected. I am confident I will have similar results there as well. The Silicone cream Dr. Koehler's office offers is definitely a huge help in this area and I'm already seeing a huge improvement! Results, results, results!!! I'm LOVING my results! Dr. Koehler is a miracle worker! I'm obsessed with my new belly button and definition in my stomach area. I now have some curve to my hips and a cute definition line that runs from the top of my abdomen to my brand new belly button. Yes, he removed my previous and reconstructed a new one and it is beautiful! Do your research in this area if you are considering a tummy tuck, not all surgeons create belly buttons equally, lol, but seriously! Prior to surgery I had stretch marks above my belly button from a piercing and pregnancy, but not anymore. Another big win, yay! Ok. Now, let's talk about my breast. Prior to surgery my breast were extremely large and sagged way more than I would like to admit. This was a huge area of concern for me. I was extremely unhappy with my breast and how they looked and not able to wear certain clothing due to this issue. I now love my breast and feel confident in all that I wear. Thank you Dr. Koehler! If you are considering having any work done, I would highly recommend Dr. Koehler and his team. They are amazing!

Breast Augmentation

Everything was explained thoroughly before doing the surgery. I was not only extremely satisfied with my results, but I would highly recommend this office to anyone seeking this type of surgery.

Breast Augmentation

From the moment I signed in at the front desk everyone was kind and made me feel at ease. Once in the consultation the experience only exceeded my expectations with meeting friendly knowledgeable staff. Dr Kolher was professional and thoroughly explained the "ins, outs, whys & why nots" regarding, yet not limited to my questions revolving around my consult.

Dr. Koehler was very knowledgeable and informative. Illustrated what to expect (outcome) of my revision surgery, and answered all questions thoroughly. Very happy I was able to schedule my surgery with such a good team/office!

We already know the nursing and business staff is spot on, but the surgeon is also extremely capable, prompt and attentive.


The liposuction removed the fat in the areas I was most concerned about.

I researched different doctors and decided to go with Dr. Koehler. This was the best decision I could have ever made. I’m beyond pleased with my tummy tuck and his beside matters. I called the after hours number to ask a question and he called back less than 3 minutes with concerns and assured I would be okay and I was. Dr. Koehler and the entire staffing team are amazing.
