March 30th, 2012DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR!!
In 2010 I broke my leg and ankle. Dr. Couch was the surgeon recommended and available by MRMC. After the surgery was complete everything went down hill. My foot would turn black purple, the swelling was awful, my stitches wouldn't heal correctly, and my foot appeared crooked! He didn't even put a cast or a boot on it! He 'forgot' to write me up for physical therapy and then after 8 mthns of physical therapy i still couldn't walk properly. I sought out 2 second opinions. Both stated that my foot was put on incorrectly and that the surgey was botched!! I had to have a reconstructive surgeon in Tampa fix it! I was out of work for almost an entire year when it should have only been 8-12 weeks!!!!!!! DO NOT GO TO DR. COUCH!! He's a quack! And he's not even board certified. He's only Osteo Board Certified which is completely different!!! DO NOT BE FOOLED!

This doctor caused me more pain then good. He was not the right doctor for me. He was in a hurry, but yet kept me in a room for over an hour waiting on him. Then when I ask the questions I felt were important, he could not give complete answers and just wanted out of the room and on to the next awaiting victim. Be careful who you believe and research your chooses of doctors. Just because someone has a degree does not mean they know how to use it for your best interest.

I had successful surgery on my shoulder by Dr Couch. Because of this positive outcome, I later went to him for ankle surgery. I am worse after the ankle surgery than before I had it. When I tried to talk to him about this, he was very uncaring and didn't want to discuss it. I was also told by his office manager that a copy of my medical records were not available to me.
November 5th, 2010Don't do it!
Couch did my ankle surgery. Was having problems even after he released me with "good health". Turns out he put my foot on crooked and now I have to see a specialist out of town! Though his office is very friendly, there was poor communication between the staff as far as my care. Couch very annoyed when I had many questions and was irritated that I wasn't healing quickly like I should. I should have gone to another doctor as soon as I noticed I wasn't getting any better.
