I took a fall at the end of December 2018, a stumble-fall on the patio. Unfortunately my upper right leg landed mostly between the patio and the brick edging. I broke my femur pretty bad. At first I thought I was just stung (charlie-horse wise) because it hurt pretty bad. I tried to let the sting wear off some then I pulled a garbage can over and tried to stand up but my leg just sort ot flomped around and I knew then I was unfortunately hurt pretty bad. I was transported to John Muir Concord and had a rod and pin put in by the good professionals 12/31/18. After a lengthly rehab, I found out the rod had cracked near the break site last October 2019. *Doctor Coufal was referred by the original Doctor to do what was referred to in the terms of a revision. I was able to have the surgery scheduled for January 10, 2020 by *Dr.Coufal at John Muir W.C. I was very lucky to have the skills of *Dr. Coufal in my situation. He's been amazing. Love you man! Thank you! j k h

He has been great! He was very capable in dealing with my quad tendon rupture. He has provided good after care support. He has a nice bedside manner, which I think is helpful in the whole recovery process. I would recommend him highly in his specialty areas.
