Portland, OR |
Dr. Cober is a very knowledgeable, attentive, and professional physician. He answers all questions thoroughly and I am highly satisfied with the results of my procedure (double incision mastectomy, FTM chest reconstruction).

Dr. Cober did a breast re-construction surgery for me this past March. Because of breast cancer 11 years ago, I had a lumpectomy done. However, I was not able to do re-construction because most insurances only covered re-construction for mastectomy. From the very first visit, Dr. Cober was kind and well-informed about the surgery. He anticipated my questions and had answers to them. That visit was 1 1/2 hrs...amazing. Surgery went very well and I am extremely pleased with the outcome.

Six years ago I had a breast augmentation procedure in GA. Over time, the implants went wrong. Dr. Cober provided a thorough analysis and proposal in a comforting atmosphere. The procedure involved removal of the existing implants and insertion of two new implants. Dr. Cober suggested and used a different textured implant set that would discourage movement of the implants. The entire process from the first visit, through the surgery, to the final visit was perfect. Everything went great!

Dr. Cober has been amazing from the start. He is reassuring, confident, very detail oriented, has the best bedside manner and I felt really cared for. There wasn't a time when I felt my questions were ignored - he answered everything, even the most silly ones. And he was reachable, even on the weekend. His work is beautiful. I couldn't be happier and would recommend him and his practice in a heart beat. I had DIEP reconstruction.
