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 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.

Dr. Wang-Kocik changed our lives on Nov. 8th. It could have been a disaster. My dad had septic shock due to a pneumonia. We are extremely grateful to have met her in the ICU. She told us what the next days will look like. Today my dad is home with us after being on life support. Thank you Dr. WK. Very Thankful for excellent medicine!

No words to express gratitude!!! Thanks for listening. Thank you for helping me feel better after many years of struggling with health issues and very little understanding. Thanks to Dr. Wang-Kocik, I can live life feeling like a normal person.

We are so blessed to have Dr. Wang as our grandpas doctor. We decided to pick her as our fathers doctor too,because she has been so kind and straightforward with us about our grandpas health condition, and makes him feel welcoming and informed about his condition and treatment options in his doctor appointments. He has shown so much progress at the age of 94. My dad is currently seeing her because she is monitoring his lungs. My dad trust and feels comfortable in having her as his pulmonologist

She was extremely insightful during this very difficult time. He was on a lot of medications and even though he could look at us and could answer simple questions he was in no way coherent enough to make decisions. Approaching end of life decisions is never an easy topic but she eased us into it and gave us time consider our options. She never seemed rushed and I always felt she understood what our family needed. We never looked back or questioned our decision because of her guidance. TY Dr.

Dr Wang-kocik was an angel in our lives. She helped my mother when she went into the ICU. It was one of the most distressing moments for our family, especially being close to Christmas. Dr Wang Kocik guided us through all the different stages of my mom’s hospital stay and managed to get her home and out of the unit. We are profoundly thankful.
