Testimonials

Excellent plastic surgeon, with the highest skills and experience, and truly an artist, a perfectionist, and a person with amazing friendliness and deep understanding of patient emotions and feelings. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me! You helped me feel and look beautiful again!


After finding out I am BRCA I positive, I decided to have a double mastectomy with DIEP flap reconstruction. Dr. Sheldon Cober is a perfectionist. My new breasts look like my younger self and the doctors who have seen them say they look better than most reconstructed breasts. Through the DIEP surgery, my lower abdominal fat was transferred into my new breasts which is a very complicated and long initial surgery but I made this decision because I didn’t want to deal with implants and potential replacements later in life. Although it was three total surgeries, this investment up front means that I’m done for good. I highly recommend Dr. Cober!


Grateful for Dr. Cober’s Skills, Passion for His Craft and Sense of Humor

Dr. Cober is an exceptional doctor with a deep understanding of his craft and a bedside manner beyond compare. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and decided to have a double mastectomy, I researched all my options. Due to the complexities of a DIEP Flap procedure and the recovery time, that option was quickly moved to the bottom of the list. I met with several plastic surgeons and at the request and encouragement of my surgical oncologist she recommended that I meet with Dr. Cober. My husband and I went into the appointment with the idea I would have the double mastectomy and then do implants.
Dr. Cober’s professionalism, passion for his craft and calming demeanor left us well informed about implants as well as the DIEP Flap procedure. We were sold, his knowledge and experience were comforting and he confidently answered all of our questions. A few weeks later, Dr. Cober (and other medical staff) and I spent the day together, yes literally almost a full day as my ‘toxic’ breasts were removed and he performed the DIEP Flap procedure.
During the surgery as well as recovery, my body threw him some curve balls and with each one, my appreciation for him grew. His bedside manner, expertise, professionalism, and a stellar sense of humor remained consistent through it all and kept me in the right frame of mind for optimal healing. I am grateful for Dr. Cober and his staff, at his office as well as the surgery center, I was taken care of from day one. THANK YOU.

Reconstruction After Lumpectomy – Portland, OR

I originally went to a plastic surgeon recommended by a friend. He gasped when he saw my right breast – it felt terrible that he couldn’t hide his disgust. He then blamed my oncologist that he did not warn me that my tissue would shrink and darken the way it did. I told him that my life was the priority, and I was not thinking about how I would look after, and was glad he hadn’t focused on that aspect either. I left in tears. His receptionist saw me and followed me into the hall. She suggested I meet with Dr. Sheldon Cober. I did so and couldn’t have been happier with our initial meeting, his concern, the time he took to answer my questions, the follow up and the work he did in general. In addition, he has a sense of humor and never made me feel ashamed of how I looked, or ashamed that I was choosing a cosmetic treatment. Everyone in his office were also friendly and professional. I have moved on from that dark time in my life, but recommend Dr. Cober very highly to anyone who is looking for a kind and skilled doctor.

I really wanted to regain a youthful body. I had my children young and still have a lot of energy. DR Cober was recommended by my PCP and I liked him immediately he has a quick wit and put me at ease quickly. His staff are more like family now. He was quick to respond to any of my concerns and responsive to any needs that I had. I had a pain pump offered and that made the procedure so much
easier for me.

From the very first visit to Dr. Cober’s office, I felt very at ease. He was kind and very informed about the procedure. He anticipated all my questions and answered them fully. His staff were able to accommodate my schedule as I am a teacher and wanted to do this on break. The surgery went very well and I had several phone calls from Dr. Cober following the surgery. Follow-up went well and, finally, when the swelling went down, I was very pleased with how my breast looked. I am very happy with the job that Dr. Cober’s did. His staff were also very helpful and kind. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting his services.
