Dr. Koval has been my doctor for more than 20 years. He has always been available when I have had problems even between regular visits and before he became part of MDVIP. I have multiple health problems and am a very immune compromised patient due to a blood cancer I have had for 25 years. The pandemic really increased my problems as I did not respond to the covid vaccines. I also see an… See more

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Koval
Like all boomers, the aging process for me has been quite the experience. My usual physical revealed the need for the further examination of specific body parts to clarify exactly what was going on. During the testing phase, I whipped myself into a fervor and lather, anxiously awaiting results and expecting the worse of all worse outcomes. And through this needless period of angst, I made a… See more
We met Dr. Koval when we moved back to Atlanta in 2018. He took great interest in our care and needs, right from the start, many times going beyond what was ever expected. One of my concerns in moving back was that due to ongoing medical issues I needed the attention of several specialists, who were in Dallas, TX. Much to my surprise, while I was in Texas visiting them, Dr. Koval called me one… See more
We were on an overseas land trip and then went on to a Greek Island cruise ship. My husband, Lou, wasn't feeling well and his resting heart rate, per his watch, was above 100. I texted Dr. Koval and he responded immediately that we should get to ship's doctor because of Lou's heart issues. We did, and the ship doctor wanted to know the precise heart history. Dr. Koval… See more
Dr Koval's ability to listen is an attribute that I appreciate.
Over the years, every time I have called him on his cell phone, he has responded within 10 minutes.
When I have ever needed immediate attention from a specialist, he simply makes a call to another doctor and sets up an appointment within the next 24 hours.
Dr Koval has offered me great deal of medical peace… See more
Dear Dr. Koval, Thank you very much for taking good care of Melissa and me over the past couple of years. We have bothered you via text, telephone both morning and night, on the weekend and you have always come through for us. Having you as our MDVIP physician has exceeded our expectations. We hope we won’t have to bother you during the balance of the year, but knowing you have our backs gives… See more
I have always been extremely pleased with Dr Koval's care. He takes whatever time is needed to address my issues, performs a thorough evaluation, and is an expert diagnostician. He makes a concerted and compassionate effort to address my long-term health, even if I don't always follow up with his recommendations. I am always able to see him on short notice, or contact him after… See more
Dr. Koval is the consummate professional. He is thoughtful, clearly knows his stuff, and knows when to urge an action to promote health and when something does not need overkill. Especially for someone as busy as he is, Dr. Koval makes himself available and always gives off the sense that my health matters to him. I also like his staff very much.
I believe that Dr. Koval is the reason that I can still provide my social security number! I had noted some cognitive decline but had attributed it to aging. A review of my blood work revealed that my thyroid was the culprit. He has since uncovered additional issues that are under management! Over the years, I have appreciated his accessibility, along with the time devoted to the annual… See more
