Dr Daniel Cochran is top-notch through and through. He was so worth the wait to see him (as a new patient); I’m relieved I didn’t settle elsewhere. I feel very confident in his treatment plans in my case, which he allowed for my input as well! just a great doc all around.

Essentially, as Dr. Cochran put it, the lower half of my body was separated from the upper. It caused severe pain and I was unable to move. Dr. Cochran performed surgery to insert...Read More
