SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Seemed more rushed than usual.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Great doctors!

SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. Coutre could not have been better. Answered questions, explained things and showed compassion and caring.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Very nice person.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Since I'm in a clinical trial, I'm not sure the care provider could give me the answers to my questions.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Clinical trial is not a situation that I could recommend this provider.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

We saw Dr. Coutre 7 yrs. ago. He is amazing. My disease is no longer in remission & it is incredible to see the same doctor.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Coutre revealed a complete misunderstanding of the most often reported symptom of my cancer, which is fatigue. when I asked if he had any suggestions about my fatigue, he said, "Not really. Fatigue is not connected to or part of Polycythemia Vera.". I was stunned as I had just attended a Mayo Clinic conference where fatigue was discussed openly as the primary patient experience. The physicians present from all over the world confirmed this finding.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dr. Coutre is great.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

The best doctor!!! Excellence care!!!

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Was seen more by MD fellow, saw MD Coutre last & less time.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

My husband & I appreciated both Dr. Coutre and the woman doctor who spoke to us before he came in. It is unfortunate that I cannot locate her name in my notes.
