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!!!
