Dr. Coffman was wonderful. Very thorough and addressed all of our concerns. Even gave recommendations for primary care doctors since we just moved to the area. Would highly recommend.

He does not listen to your issues, he has very poor bedside manners, he is very rough. I do not feel he cares about his patients nor does he enjoy his profession anymore, i have visited him 5 times now to give him a fair chance and i will be searching for someone new. I have spent hours waiting in the room for him, I do not trust his diagnosis, i have had second opinions and they differ, at no point as he even resolved a simple earache.
