This doctor was really great. She spoke directly to my daughter and looked to me only if my daughter was unclear on the issue. She also explained what she was doing to my daughter and made sure she was comfortable. Really great!!
Always feel comfortable and at easy when seeing Dr. Koda.
The wait time in the waiting prior to being placed in the exam room was 45 minutes. Then we waited another 30 minutes in the exam room prior to seeing the doctor. I had to inquire about the 45 minute wait time just to be placed in the exam room for another long wait. It was too long of a wait.
Leslie spent as much time as we needed. She never rushed us and remained extremely attentive throughout the appointment. She was very respectful and helped to brainstorm ideas for my son's treatment. I would recommend Leslie for ANY child!!
we loved Leslie she was very attentive and listened to my daughter. she only turned to me when my daughter didn't know the answering really liked that
Leslie Coda is an excellent provider. She listens carefully and takes time to work with our family. I cannot recommend her enough!
no complaints. she was very nice and explained everything to me. she was very patient with my daughter.
Ms. Coda spent much time with my son and explained everything. She personally called with test results and seemed to truly care. I was greatly impressed and appreciative. I wold highly recommend get services. Was upset that my son was given a school excuse from another dept. with the wrong dates and that proved a hassel. Ultrasound was wonderful and my teenage son was comfortable. Blood work went well.
amazing we were so happy with her today
My foster son has many issues that was brought up to the care provider and it was like we talked to the wall. We were only in the office for a total of maybe 10 minutes total. We asked for help and our baby still is have stomach problems with very little bowel movements.
she was very thorough and explain everything!
she listened to ALL my concerns
Leslie was very attentive to our daughter's situation. she took the time to listen and wrote almost everything we said down. When her sx didn't resolve with the nutramigen, the office didn't hesitate to let us put her on neocate. Leslie was very accomodating and caring. my husband and i really appreciate her care of our daughter.
she did a great job
It was a good experience. I feel we may be solving the problem.
From check in to check out the whole experience was excellent. All staff was knowledgeable and helpful.
very attentive and spoke to both me and my child
Ms. Coda was very gentle with my daughter which was very important to me. She explained to me with language that made sense to me. (I am not a doctor) She also had asked for me to call with an update for my child, which I thought was awesome!
dr. coda is a warm and caring person who my son feels comfortable with. If I (dad) answer a question or give feedback on him, she looks at him for his opinion, puts him "front and center".
Every visit that we have made to the GI department at Children's has always been very positive.. Everyone is so kind and helpful, on time etc..
very pleased with the amount of time Leslie Coda spent listening to my daughters concerns and answers to her questions. Wished some other suggestions regarding diet or supplements would have been included.
Every thing was great.
Mrs Coda was thorough and helpful, however we had to wait an hour and 30minutes beyond our appointment time before we were even seen by a tech and taken to a room. we were told by registration that she always runs very behind, but an hour and a half is beyond reasonable. she is methodical, but plodding, which makes the appointment drag on for longer than needs to. for these reasons, I would choose a new provider for out next visit.
Leslie is wonderful we travel 1 1/2 hours to see her cause of the care and knowledge she has shown my child
Leslie Coda was an exceptional health care provider. Spent lots of time obtaining a history, examining my daughter and providing her medical opinions and recommendations. She was great!
It was so nice to have someone who truly listened to what we were saying and took the time to discuss and respond with helpful information. we were so pleased with our provider we wished she was available for primary care.
I do not feel the diagnosis was made by listening to what I had to say. I felt dismissed after her diagnosis and that was it. I am not happy with the treatment plan made after processing the visit and I feel more at a loss after than before
dr. Coda was so patient and caring with my son. He needed that since he is worried about his health
very happy. she was very gentle and compassionate with my infant. I felt reassured that his condition is common and nothing to be worried about.
