Patient Reviews
May 18, 2020
The good Doctor saved my life back in late November of 2007, by removing a section of my lower colon, which had become very near septic due to a diverticulum which had become a fistula, reached out and embraced my Bladder. After nearly 13 succeding years, I've experienced no further issues in that nasty region. Could another local surgeon have peformed that procedure as successfully as Doctor Cockerham? Certainly, but he was my "Go to" Guy; went to and will return to him should (Saints forbid) I require another surgery.
