Norton, MA |
Would not go to any other doctor..... it took me 4 doctors before I found Dr. Cote and so glad I did! He diagnosed my condition on first visit. Prior to seeing Dr. Cote I saw a doctor in walk-in center twice, my allergist and my OLD eye doctor!!!!!

My son had an accident where his eye was lacerated. We went to the Er and I wanted my son checked by an ophthalmologist. Dr Cote took my son as a patient. We went every other day for two weeks then twice a week, then once a week until my son was healed. Dr Cote saved my son's vision and has been our family ophthalmologist. My husband had ms and I have sarcoidosis and dr Cote and his expertise have met all of our needs He is professional and provides excellent care.

He's very attentive, takes his time with you, never makes you feel rushed or unimportant. You can tell he really cares about your health and concerns. Office staff is great and office atmosphere is very welcoming. Can't say enough good things! I just hope he doesn't retire soon!!
