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.
