The office staff was courteous and professional, and the doctor took the time to listen to my concerns, answer my questions, and thoroughly explain the process and procedures necessary to complete the procedure. Extremely please with her ability to empathize with my concerns, and her knowledge and competence to address my medical condition.

Dr. Courcoulas performed a very thorough exam of my inguinal hernia and provided me with easily understood options when the time comes to repair it. She gave me much needed peace of mind on how I'm to manage this condition going forward. My wife and I were very impressed by her knowledge, thoroughness and bedside manner with me.
