Dr. Coates is EXCELLENT. Explains everything in great detail, you never feel rushed during a visit and you have his undivided attention. You goes to great length to know medical history and makes decision with your best possible outcome in mind. No one wants to have surgery, but if you do, this is the type of provider you want - detail oriented, kind and patient focused.
We would recommend Dr. Coats to any of our friends, especially with sports related injuries. From going to Taylor might not be able to play the sport she loves, to being released to play, he understood how important it was to her. He provided the best surgery option, got Taylor is with an excellent PT, and gave her instructions to heal and be able to play.
