Rebecca Kholer and the entire Bariatric Team have exceeded my expectations in care.UofU Patient May 26, 2015
We decided to use the University of Utah as a self pay patient. From the beginning I have been impressed with the level of care I have received. Rebecca is really kind and caring. She takes time to listen to your questions and answer them thoroughly. She is friendly when you meet with her, she remembers who you are, and is genuinely concerned for your health and progress. I had some concerns about my medications and energy levels. She talked with me through my options until I was comfortable with a course of action.UofU Patient May 20, 2015
Rebecca really went above and beyond to help me feel better about my situation. She listened to my anxious "rants" and provided me kind and supportive feedback. I appreciated the extra time she spent to help me feel at ease.UofU Patient May 13, 2015
Rebecca is awesome. She is very thorough and she always takes the time to answer any and all questions that I have. After I visited with her, and was visiting with the Dietician, I realized I forgot to ask her something. The Dietician relayed my question to Rebecca and then Rebecca came back again to address my concern.UofU Patient December 22, 2014
Rebecca Koehler PA spent plenty of time with me. She addressed everything I needed and seemed concerned with me and how I felt.UofU Patient February 18, 2014
Rebecca Kohler and Doctor Volckmann were awesome! They were kind and thorough, and answered every question I could have possibly come up with. I had another doctor tell me that I would almost surely have complications with this surgery, if not die. Rebecca and Dr. Volckmann were a great relief when they told me that they were confident that I would be fine and they could do a successful surgery! I would recommend them to anyone that needed any abdominal surgery, or bariatric surgery. I had an awesome experience with them!
