Patient Comments (1)
in Cumberland |
Although I am also a surgeon (ophthalmic) in Portland, I didn't know Dr. Cole nor her reputation until I needed emergency surgery. Through that experience, I cannot say enough to commend her knowledge and experience, her caring and individualized approach to her patient, and her success with the potentially challenging issue of having a doctor as a patient. If, unlike me, you have the luxury of choosing your surgeon, don't hesitate for a moment - you will be in the best hands with Dr. Cole.
