About
Dr. Ko was born and raised in New Jersey. He went to college at Brandeis University in Massachusetts and then medical school in Southern California. He then completed his Family Medicine residency at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth and went on to pursue additional training at the JPS Sports Medicine Fellowship where he served as the chief fellow and also as one of the TCU team physicians. What he enjoys most about family medicine is building a relationship with his patients and being able to treat and manage a wide variety of issues for everyone who comes to the clinic. In his free time, Dr. Ko enjoys jogging, cooking and spending time with his family and two dogs. After living all across America, he is glad to finally settle down in Texas and consider it home.

Dr Ko was very knowledge and kind in his approach. we discussed treatment options together, that made it very comfortable.
Nov 21, 2019
I feel the doctor I saw had no care or concern in my condition as it is taking time to get appointments set up from his referrals. He allowed me to leave in severe pain and barely able to walk and wouldn't even consider refilling the prescription I received from the hospital to get me by until I can get to his recommended appointments. I am very disappointed that a doctor who is suppose to have care and compassion for patients didn't show me any other than referrals. And again, allowed me to remain in severe pain and barely able to walk.
