It was a great experience. The staff were so nice and made me feel so comfortable and talked to me about whatever they did. Asked if I had any questions. Dr. Coelho called me that evening to check up on me, and I thought that was so awesome. Pat V. Mar 2019
From a former teacher’s point of view, Dr. Coelho earns an A ++++. I have only superlatives for that doctor, from my office visit to post surgery. He’s extremely professional, yet warm and friendly. I especially appreciated his sense of humor. To receive a follow-up call the night of surgery from the surgeon was most impressive and greatly appreciated. The entire procedure was pain free, and now thirty-six hours later, recovery has been without pain, swelling or bleeding. I am grateful for his expertise, resulting in an exciting life change for me!
