Highly Professional

Dr. Counter was recommended to me for Hernia evaluation and possible Laparoscopic surgery. I was very impressed with his evaluation and recommendation for the surgery. He explained everything in detail, listened to me and asked pertinent questions as well as examining the area. He played it safe (which I appreciated) by requesting that I get an okay from my urologist due to some prostrate issues. He also wanted me to have an EKG right then to check on my A-Fib. What this told me was that he was very thorough and did not take unnecessary risks. He was very personable during the initial evaluation, during surgery and post operative care. He made me feel important and just not another dollar donor. I would recommend Dr. Counter without any reservations.
