    Mar 27, 2017
    Dr, Couch repaired two hernias less than two weeks ago and I feel great! i never took one pain pill after the operation and was walking around only hours after the procedure. I as able to sleep well every day since the operation without any discomfort. I would very highly recommend Dr. Couch to family and friends.
