My care was excellent in detail. All my questions and concerns were addressed.

Dr. Cooper came into the room and did not introduce himself to us or even acknowledge that my wife there; he did not ask me how I was doing since my previous visit or about my pain; he abruptly began removing stiches and staples, and told the nurse to bandage me up and then said "you're done" and that was it.
