happy and healthy

I am so happy with Dr. Cockburn. He has helped me more than any doctor that I have been to. He listens and then he knew when to do surgery on me. I feel better than I have in years and years.

Great doc!

I see this doctor every 4 months for following my prostate cancer. He is always on top of it. He is funny too. An added bonus. He did my surgery and now I am cancer free.

Life Saver

Dr. Cockburn (a Scottish name, by the way, which is pronounced co-burn), met me in the ER when I was bleeding into my urine so badly that I could not stand up. He arrived in a heartbeat and quite literally saved my life. He was caring, compassionate and skilled. I was in surgery before 2 hours passed and we will be forever grateful for him.
