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...Read More
