“The Best In Town.” When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and was processing the words “double mastectomy” and “reconstruction,” I felt completely scared and overwhelmed. My general breast surgeon recommended a plastic surgeon, Dr. Sheldon Cober, saying, “He is the best in town.” I had a double mastectomy with reconstruction. I am nearing the end of this process and, because of my positive experience, I feel inspired to write a review for Dr. Cober and his staff. I am a registered nurse and know that I have analyzed and evaluated my experience through the lens of a healthcare professional, and I am very pleased with my breast reconstruction results. Dr. Cober is clearly highly skilled in the art of breast reconstruction. Along with his exceptional surgical skills, my experience with Dr. Cober has also been that it’s easy to talk with him and, more importantly, he listens intently to what my hopes are for my reconstruction and he clearly focuses to meet those expectations. Dr. Cober’s staff is warm, friendly and kind. I always feel welcomed when I arrive at my appointments. I can honestly declare that Dr. Cober’s exceptional skill in reconstructing my breasts has led me to a real sense of feeling whole again. As his patient, and as a nurse, I very highly recommend Dr. Cober as a plastic surgeon. He has proven to me that he is, indeed, “the best in town.”
Very Pleased With ResultsDr. Cober has the best bedside manner and makes you feel very comfortable! Answers, very patiently, all of your questions and tells you the pros and cons of the treatment. He took great care to numb the areas to be injected and it was virtually painless.
Male Breast ReductionQuality work for a reasonable price I had a great experience all around with Dr. Cober and Tanasbourne plastic surgery. Dr. Cober is friendly and happy to explain everything about pre-op, post-op, the surgery, and answer whatever questions I had. I felt comfortable at each visit and never felt rushed or looked down on. As far as surgery day I had a quiet room and very friendly staff who took care of me before and after. My post-op visits have been of the same quality and I am very happy with the results. I would definitely recommend Dr. Cober if you are interested in any type of plastic surgery.
Breast Reconstruction My post mastectomy breast reconstruction is AMAZING!! I cannot say enough good thing about Dr. Cober. I was refereed to him by my breast surgeon for reconstruction at the time of my double Mastectomy. She so highly recommended him that I did not even see another plastic surgeon. When a doctor tells you that he did the reconstruction on all her family members and that if she ever needed a plastic surgeon it would be Dr. Cober, I was very impressed. It turned out he was all she said and more. He was thoughtful and easy to work with. He helped me to choose the best size and shape of breast for my body. The nipple reconstruction was amazing. They look so realistic! A couple of years later I went back for a tummy tuck. Again the results were excellent and he was great to work with.
Breast Reconstruction Sheldon Cober Is the Best Breast Reconstruction Surgeon in the Portland Area Dr. Sheldon Cober is hands-down the best physician I have ever worked with. I don’t say that lightly, as I have always had positive medical experiences and I also worked with an incredible breast specialist during my double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. Nevertheless, Dr. Cober’s deep knowledge, excellent bedside manner and humor, and patient-directed approach combined to make for a seamless experience. That’s despite an additional emergency surgery during the process as well as a tight timeline because I was moving out of the country. No matter what I threw at him, Dr. Cober handled it easily. Dr. Cober gave me a wealth of information to help me make my decision all along the way. He never questioned my final decisions, but was not afraid to be firm about what the best course of action was for me. The result was a new set with which I am completely satisfied (thrilled, actually) and a lifelong relationship to which I know I can always turn. I cannot recommend Sheldon Cober highly enough.
Mastectomy Mastectomy After Second Breast Cancer Diagnosis Dr Cober is the consummate professional, yet caring and kind. He and Dr Anderson took such amazing care of me. I had complications after my surgery and we had to go back to the OR, and he fixed me right up. Cannot say enough good things about this man. So very gifted!! I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Cober. He is kind, considerate and the consummate professional. In my journey, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet people who are doing exactly what they should be and he’s one of them – my results were exemplary and I couldn’t be more pleased!
Liposuction 46 Years Old. Significant Hormonal Issues, Very Uncomfortable in my Body! Dr. Cober is an attentive and respectful practitioner. He shows compassion yet exhibits confidence in what he can do for you.
Tummy Tuck Terrific Tummy Tuck I am in my mid-40s and had two large babies that stretched out my stomach skin and muscles plus I had a hernia above my belly button. My hernia doctor recommended Dr. Cober and another doctor (told me to visit 2). I selected Dr. Cober because he would repair the stomach muscles himself (the other plastic surgeon was going to have the hernia doctor do it), included liposuction and would build me a new belly button (mine was so messed up and the other doc wanted to leave it) plus I liked his bedside manner better. He did an amazing job on my tummy and belly button – I couldn’t be happier. Prior to surgery, one of his office people (who is no longer there) messed up my surgery schedule and he personally called me to explain the situation then fixed the issue. My hubby had to call him a few times post-surgery during the weekend and on a Holiday due to some issues that I needed address quickly (that were not his fault) and he took it in stride and called in prescriptions for me immediately. It is a tough surgery recovery-wise for me but, through it all, I felt Dr. Cober was responsive, professional and skilled and my results are fantastic. The nurses at the surgery center called him an artist and also told me that his surgeries have amazing results.
Breast Reduction Dr. Cober did a breast reduction for me associated with a lumpectomy. At a scary time, Dr. Cober and his staff were great, helpful and compassionate. Am very pleased with the results and have recommended Dr. Cober to friends contemplating surgery.
