Dr. Coufal applies expertise and specialized training daily to deliver state-the-art care.
He recognizes the importance of all patients thoroughly understanding the cause and treatment options for their problem. In fact, he admits, "My biggeset shortcoming is that I talk and spend too much time with patients."
