Dr. Couillard Says:

We look at patient surveys as an opportunity for growth. If you like us please tell your friends. If you have a problem with your care at my office please let me know personally and I will do everything I can to fix it. Typically problems are often just a miscommunication and can be easily solved in a timely fashion.

Was greeted by a very friendly helpful staff immediately. They were helpful courteous kind. Dr couillard entered the examining room the smile on his face ready to go to work. Unfortunately he couldn't do what needed to be done so they scheduled me for early the next day for my testing. He was very eager to speak with my family practitioner on his results. He conducted himself in a very professional manner throughout the visit
Lincoln, CA |
Horrible bedside manner and very rude. Can't get through to him when I've had problems after an operation with him. This guy only cares about money. Avoid him at all costs.
in Folsom, CA |
Upon meeting me, w/o reading my referral or personal information this Dr. assumed I had incontinence & urgency & told me to quit drinking any liquids during the day, specifically coffee/tea, & not to eat chocolate. He spent 15 mins. of a 20 min. appt. second guessing my former physician concerning my decade old procedure and continued discussion of my personal treatment into the clinic hallway, boasting that his patients received superior care and he couldn't always fix others mistakes.
