My husband and myself had some eye surgery done with Dr. Couch. Everything was explained to us in detail about our procedures. We were prepared for the swelling and bruising that follows after the surgery. Dr. Couch is very personable with an impeccable bedside manner that is hard to find these days. Both my husband and myself feel that he is by far a class act. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Couch is an excellent doctor and surgeon. I put my daughter in his very capable hands years ago and I have praised him ever since. His knowledge, professionalism, and sincere caring for his patients, makes him a stand out in the medical field.

I am currently recuperating from major eye surgery performed by Dr. Steven M. Couch. I've had nothing but positive interactions with Dr. Couch and his staff. Dr. Couch was genuinely interested in my questions regarding my condition. It was obvious he truly cares about his patients. He was very honest, concise,and straight-forward and I appreciated the time he took in explaining procedures and recuperation time. I highly recommend Dr. Couch!

I flew from Florida to have my surgery with him because I would rather have an opthamologist who is a specialist on the eyes than a plastic surgeon. The day of surgery it was seamless, I didnt feel any pain and afterwords even with all the bruising it looked amazing! I know I was supposed to rest but I could not believe the transformation and how good things looked. He is amazing and I would highly recommend him!

I recently had an appointment with Dr Couch about a week age and I will like to say he is amazing at what he does. He is very professional, polite, and caring. After my procedure he made sure that someone called and checked up on me to see how I was doing. I would recommend him to anyone.

I saw Dr. Couch years ago for an upper/lower bleph and brow lift. I am a nurse and have met many docs. He and his staff were so attentive and made sure I was aware of the whole process and recovery. Dr. Couch was meticulous in his work. I was so impressed that I went back this year to have a laser treatment to my entire face. He spent time with me, answered all of my questions, was attentive to my needs both physically and mentally (I was nervous). I look wonderful. I HIGHLY recommend him!

Dr Couch is very knowledgeable and does an excellent job explaining his work . Along with his staff, they made me feel very comfortable having lid lift and some laser surgery3 months ago. So appreciate the care I received before, during and after the procedure was done. Thank you !

Cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Couch! I was referred to him after a sequence of really awful experiences and misdiagnosis elsewhere. Dr. Couch had a fantastic “bedside manner”, diagnosed my condition immediately and the needed procedure was FAR quicker and less painful than my past experiences at other facilities.

He gave my life back . After 13 Jones Tube surgeries finally Dr. Couch found the right formula. It worked. I will always have issues with my eye,but if I do I am quite confident Dr. Couch will be there.

Dr. Couch was absolutely amazing with my father! He was kind and patient with him. Dr. Couch walked him through all the steps of the surgery, and helped him feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. My father was a bit nervous, and Dr. Couch not only calmed his nerves, but made my father feel very confident about his decision to move forward with the surgery. Dr. Couch went above and beyond! We were very lucky to have Dr. Couch!

Dr. Couch performed orbital decompression surgery on my right eye and did such a great job. You can't even tell there was a problem because he fixed my eyes up so perfectly that they're now totally symmetrical. I am thankful that I chose the right doctor and would recommend him to anyone needing to get serious surgery done on their eyes. Dr. Couch is talented and can be trusted.

I had two rather large moles removed, one from my left cheek, which I had since my teenage years and the other on my chest that had been there for many years, also. The procedure and aftercare were both explained fully. Dr. Couch made me feel like family and talked as though we had known one another for years. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and family.

Dr. Couch does excellent work. My only complaint is that he spends so little time explaining what he is going to do to the patient. He seems to be heading for the door out no sooner than he comes into the room. Maybe he's too busy?

This man single handily saved my life and I trust him like a brother and love him like family!!! He took a chance on a young woman with a rare disease that no one knew what was and every other doctor for 5 years wouldn't take such a rare case. He's went above and beyond his duties for the past 8 years we have been fighting my disease. He is a god send and I'm proud to say he is my doctor!!!
