Learn about Dr. Counter

Care Philosophy

I emphasize the proper use of technology, such as laparoscopy, to help return a patient to their pre-surgical health. I utilize residents in my practice, but assure a personal touch with every patient. I emphasize not only the role of surgery but the shared responsibility of both surgeon and patient to return the patient to health.
