Very thorough even though he was extremely busy. He did a very nice job on my hip and knee replacement. Dr Cote is a bit loud but that is his natural voice. He can be blunt but he tells you how it is. He is an excellent surgeon.

Says I need a metal plate put in my broken arm but they want $1900 up front even with my insurance. He can stick that metal plate where the sun doesn't shine. I don't have that kind of money so I will suffer with the broken arm.

Had knee surgery and am receiving Cortisone shots for my shoulder. Dr. Cote takes time to explain things to me, is very personable and makes me leave feeling very comfortable with my situation. The staff is outstanding in friendliness and courtesy and scheduling an appointment is very easy and quick. I have recommended him to several over last couple years since I started going to him.

Dr. Cote is a very good surgeon. He has helped me threw my surgery and I would recommend him to anyone. He talked to me threw everything he we doing. My scars healed up good. Even though this was my first surgery I am very satisfied and would go back again to see him.
