She is the most caring and compassionate provider in this field. She takes time to address any issues, and is always pleasant and interested in whatever needs need addressed, if any.

Dr Courcoulas is a very caring and thorough physician. She takes time and addresses any and all issues or concerns that one may have. She never rushes through the checkups, and always makes sure that I am doing well and getting any info or testing I may need. She is absolutely the best, and I have referred many of my friends to her. There is no one more qualified in this field. Kind, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable, and I recommend her to anyone. They will be in the best of hands.

Saw her for a second opinion regarding surgical management of a sick gall bladder. She was thorough, spent a lot of time with me. Her PA was excellent as well.

Dr. Anita Courcoulas is the very best surgeon and you are very fortunate to have her on your staff. she performed a high risky major surgery on me that another hospital would not attempt. although the recovery has been long and hard I now feel I've turned the corner and I'm feeling a lot better.
