Dr. Gerhard Koeveker. Spoke fluent English. Extremely kind and compassionate. Took the time to explain everything to me and made sure I understood what was going on. Performed an open surgery on me in February 06. He is a general surgeon and located at the Sindelfingen Hospital near Stuttgart, Germany. (For service members it is covered by TriCare Prime and is near Patch Barracks and Panzer Kaserne).
