Excellent service & provider!

Do to CoVID19, this appointment was handled by phone. It went very well. I was able to express my concerns and Dr. Couri explained the plan and what to expect very well. I am comfortable where I am in my recovery.

I had used ... previously with little success, a neighbor suggested I try Dr Couri who listened to me about my pain, and prescribed a therapy that worked very well
No Rating Given
extreme impressed with this physician and ... his nurse. all others are not very polite
No Rating Given
I always feel like Dr Couri really listens to me and he remembers me from visit to visit even though it's usually 3 months apart. With hm I don't have to start at the beginning to get him up to date before I start discussing my issues and that is very important to me.
No Rating Given
Dr. Couri is the best. He listens and takes everything I say into consideration. He takes his time with me and makes sure I get to voice how I feel about my treatment plan. I feel safe under his care.

wait time too long! 1 hour!
No Rating Given
Dr. Couri is a wonderful doctor! He has the best bedside manner that I have ever experienced. Sometimes, there is a little bit of a wait at his office, but he is worth it! He takes his time with patients really getting to know them and their health issues. It is definitely obvious that he cares about his patients. Also ... is a wonderful nurse. She is the best to speak to on the phone if there's a question or concern, she contacts Dr. Couri and gets right back to you. This is one of my favorite practices that I go to, I would recommend Dr. Couri to all of my family and friends, even a stranger on the street. He and his staff are that wonderful!
