Dr. Ko is always good. She’s very efficient and smart. I went in for a surgery preauthorization and she did not know the details of how my surgery worked. I know that she is not my specialist, but although it’s probably not an expectation that the pre authorization doctor knows everything, if she had come in with more knowledge, it would have been a better experience.
