I have been with this provider and clinic for years. even after moving to Gresham I chose to stay at this clinic; after attempting to get the same quality of care at the Greaham site. I have all the confidence in the world in Dr. Kocher and the medical support staff at Gateway Family Practice. I also have experienced a higher level of care from Dr Kocher than other physicians at this same site. i can't say enough good things about Dr Kocher, her support staff, and the receptionist there.

[...] I met Dr Kocher when she was 1st starting her practice and was so blown away at the fact she seemed to really listen and care about my health, she took into consideration that I knew my body very well and trusted my instincts instead of pooh poohing them and making me feel less educated then her. When my mother was diagnosed with cancer I took her to Dr Kocher for a 2nd opinion and she refereed her to a specialist My mother was given days/weeks to live and as a result to Dr Kocher and her recommendation to providence specialist and care she went on to survive another 4 years. After regaining health care several years later I chose Providence for one and only one reason Dr Kristen Kocher , she is a gem and one of the best in the medical field that I have ever come across [...]
