      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!!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
