"Best MD ever - Both my husband and myself have been treated by Dr Korba. I would trust him with my life.I have been sick and in bed most of this year. No one has yet found the source of my illness.How can I get to see Dr Korba?I live in Columbia. Brenda Harvey"



"Cindy is absolutely phenomenal. I got botox injection to help relieve my migraines and she was amazing. The procedure took very little time and I had no pain during or after the procedure. She was extremely helpful with everything and very knowledgable. The office was beautiful and homie, so I didn't feel any stress sitting in a stiff doctor's office. I would recommend her to everyone and will be going back again."



"Friendly, knowledgeable staff! Great results! I wouldn't go anywhere else!"



"He's absolutely the best in our opinion. He takes time with his patients. He really listens to his patients. Also he is a Godly man. He has been both my husband's and my surgeon for many years. We consider him a great friend as well. We highly recommend him for patients needing a surgeon. "



"Caring and Compassionate - I started going to Dr.Korba a little over a year ago. A little back story I had been seeing a different surgeon (had part of my colon removed and a ileostomy placed. After that surgery I got very sick and couldn't keep anything down. My surgeon didn't seem concerned and got very nasty the last time I saw him and I was to nervous to go back) So I get a appt with Dr.Korba and soon as he sees me he is very concerned as my weight was only 68lbs & I'm 5'6 and 35 years old. He set me up for blood work and a couple different test. I was diagnosed with gastroparesis. He started me on a medication and I've been so much better. A year later I'm at 108lbs and have a colonoscopy scheduled. If everything looks good I'll be able to have my ileostomy reversed! Dr.Korba is a very kind and compassionate doctor. He is also a man of God! I can't say enough good things about him. He's just an all around good person and actually really cares about his patients."
