extremely pleased so far with the friendliness, professionalism, and efficiency

Absolutely wonderful. Dr. Courcoulas was punctual, answered all of my questions, and made sure to provide me with additional contact information for her team as well.

Excellent care was provided from the very beginning. My wife and I highly recommend the hospital staff and the doctor's team as well. The doctor herself was outstanding as well.

Very disappointed in the lack of understanding of quitting smoking and how difficult that is. And to expect that to happen before a procedure and after. It's hard enough to lose weight and focus on that let alone asking for someone to quit smoking right along with it. I think there is a HUGE lack of understanding and flexability with that matter. I also could have been told prior to a three hour travel time that if you smoke you are NOT a candidate for the procedure I was looking to have done. (Obera) Very upset about that.
