I needed to see a dermatologist asap and called Dr. Couture's office as my husband had been to him and liked him very much. I got an appointment within a week and found him very easy to talk to and I wasn't rushed, he gave me a course of treatment and a follow-up appointment to follow through. I would recommend his practice without hesitation.

Dr. Couture is very knowledgeable and professional. He takes time to explain the problem and to take care of the problem he is addressing for you at the time. I would recommend him and his staff.

Doctor Couture schedules appointments for me every six months to make sure I'm doing well and to go over the medicine and supplements I'm taking, which gives me the feeling that he really cares about my health. Everyone in his office is so friendly, kind and helpful that I look forward to going there.

Dr. Couture and his staff ... I couldn't be happier with. I have known for years and have recently been seeing Dr. Couture for issues. I highly recommend this facility. Bedside manners are remarkable and spends the time needed to meet your needs. Pleasant place of practice with excellent care.

Dr Couture is very professional and knowledgeable about procedures and products offered in his practice. I highly recommend Dr Couture! His staff is very polite and friendly.
in Salem, VA |
Dr. Couture has been my general physician for the last 20 years. He is outstanding and takes a sincere interest in your overall health and any current problems. He uncovered an atrial fibrillation problem I had and of course sent me to a specialist where it got resolved. But the best thing was he discovered my PSA was elevating...and while the level wasn't generally high enough to warrant concerns for Prostate Cancer, he wanted a second opinion. There was cancer he saved my life by referral

My recent visit to the clearbrook medical facility was a very positive experience. My wait times were minimal, office staff were efficient and professional. After a procedure I received a prompt follow up call from Dr Couture with the results. I would highly recommend the Clearbrook medical team.
