She saved my son’s life!!! I thought he was not going to make it, but after she reviewed the data, she knew what to do. So grateful!

A doctor who finally understands my concerns. I’ve been so scared with since I was diagnosed with Scleroderma. I’ve been having breathing issues and no one seemed to understand or deal with my problem.

I loved visiting with her. She explained everything i needed to know. She gave me peace of mind. I can’t thank her enough.
I was examined and treated by Dr. Carla Kocik for my sleep disorder. She was very attentive, kind and explained my treatment plan very well. Her diagnosis of my sleep apnea was spot on and her prescription of a CPAP is successfully treating my disorder. Thank you for your patience and kindness. Wonderful experience.

Thanks to her I’m off many of the medications that use to control my life. I used to take a drug to wake me up, and a few to fall asleep. I’m now free! She had patience and didn’t give up easily. Thank you Dr. Carla. WK.

Very grateful with Dr. Kocik for making my husband breath better. It was becoming very concerning and I knew this was not going to end up good. We met Dr. Kocik who took the time to listen and give us the right treatment.
