I was referred to Dr. Cober by my Surgeon after being diagnosed with breast cancer. My surgeon suggested I have a breast reduction at the time of the lumpectomy. I was thrilled and found this to be the bright light of having a cancer diagnoses. From my first visit until my last, Dr. Cober and his staff were amazing. Dr. Cober and his medical assistant made me feel at ease. I can't say enough positive praises about my experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Cober.

I saw Dr. Cober after a couple of breast reconstruction surgeries. I was not happy with the process and results I had been through. Dr. Cober was fantastic. He knew how to fix my issue. He was straight forward about the results I should expect and he followed through with what he said. I was very happy with his work.

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Cober, who was very highly recommended by my PCP when I needed Hand Surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome about 10 weeks ago. I am very, very pleased with the procedure. the results and especially with Dr. Cober's skill, kindness and low-key direct way of speaking. The surgery nurse told me I could watch the surgery on a monitor. I thought not, but ended up being absolutely fascinated with it! Of course, with the nerve block I felt nothing and the mild sedation made it seem as if I were watching while this was being done to someone else! Start to finish the entire thing was less than 40 minutes, and the actual surgery was closer to 15-20 min.

I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer in 2016. I started with a unilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. Before my exchange surgery I found out that I have a genetic mutation that increases my chances of certain cancers by as much as 40%. I therefore opted for a second prophylactic mastectomy. Dr. Cober was supportive of my decisions and checked up on me after each surgery to make sure I was doing well and that my pain was managed. During this process I got to spend a lot of time with Dr. Cober. I actually looked forward to our visits (how many doctors can you say that about?). He is great at explaining procedures and options, quick with jokes and puns but most importantly he is an excellent surgeon, a kind and compassionate person and a true artist with the human body. I am very happy with the end results. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Cober is the best! I had a free tram flap tissue transplant after a unilateral mastectomy. After that healed up, I had a breast reduction on the opposite side, then after that healed, I had the areola and nipple recreated. Both breasts are now symmetrical, comparable in size, lift and the nipple and areola look natural. I am so pleased with the results and won't consider going to any other surgeons should I need on in the future.

Dr Cober is a perfectionist and diligent plastic surgeon. In 2017 I needed a bi lateral mastectomy for breast cancer and I was very pleased with the result. He was extremely patient with me and went overboard to address all my issues. Not only that but his personality is very approachable and fun! I also elected to have a upper arm reduction which he also performed extremely well. I had no problems and the scars are almost invisible. Highly recommend him AND his staff along with the surgery cent

My breast surgeon gave me a couple of different recommendations for reconstruction doctors. I met with both, but Dr. Cober struck a cord with me. He is a fellow artist. For him, it isn't just tissue, but a palette and every surgery he performs is with an eye towards the final masterpiece. HIs skill, patience, eye for the detail, and professionalism put me instantly at ease and I am very happy with the end result!

I cannot say enough good thing about Dr. Cober. I was refereed to him by my breast surgeon for reconstruction at the time of my double Mastectomy. She so highly recommended him that I did not even see another plastic surgeon. When a doctor tells you that he did the reconstruction on all her family members and that if she ever needed a plastic surgeon it would be Dr. Cober, I was very impressed. It turned out he was all she said and more. He was thoughtful and easy to work with. He helped me to c

Dr. Sheldon Cober is hands-down the best physician I have ever worked with. His deep knowledge, excellent bedside manner and humor, and patient-directed approach combined to make for a seamless experience. That’s despite an additional emergency surgery during the process as well as a tight timeline because I was moving out of the country. No matter what I threw at him, he handled it easily. I cannot recommend Sheldon Cober highly enough.

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.
