Follow up to review on Mar 22, 2020. Dr Cote's office replied and said my poor experience was due to COVID. My appointments were in 2019, starting in June. Yep, no. Nice try. You can't even own up to your patients feedback and you blame them on the public health crisis. My appointments were in 2019!! WOW!

Almost every appointment was late and all were rushed. At first, Dr. Cote comes across as kind and compassionate. Afterward, any questions or concerns I had were essentially dismissed and left me feeling invalidated. Would not recommend based on results or patient care and experience.

Disappointing. I have received great care from one of his colleagues for sinus surgery, so I set up the consultation with Dr. Cote with the expectation that I would receive comparably courteous, responsive care. I left feeling that Dr. Cote was not interested in me or my health condition. He would not take the time to answer my questions, acted aloof and left me with the impression that I had wasted his time. To add insult to injury, I received a phone call while Dr. Cote was meeting with me FROM HIS OFFICE asking me where I was since I had an appointment scheduled at that time! After the appointment, I listed to the voice message and called the office. No one seemed to know what was going on, more waste of my time.

His patient coordinator made me feel like I was purchasing a new car. 1st appt upon meeting her the first question was “when do you want to schedule your surgery?” This was a consultation and Dr. Cote said she would schedule a follow up appt. 2 weeks later for follow up, first question from her was, “did you schedule your appt?” Dr. Cote is so caring and compassionate, but (Kim, IDK, rude rushed lady) turned me off from the practice. First practice I shopped and there is more to be desired. I think an important aspect has been lost in the business growth - surgery is not fun. Patient coordinators are sales people, but should be reminded we are not used cars getting tuned up. Add the human element, PLEASE!!!

Dr. Cote is one of the most thorough and genuine doctors I have ever had to deal with. He is honest. He is genuine. He cares about what you need and tells you in a "human" way what is wrong and what you need to do too address the problem. His staff is super friendly and his physical office is very nice and very clean. If you have ENT problems Dr. cote is the person you need to see. I had a nose job and i have had no issues since. Dr. Cote is the best!!

His ego is out of control and is only interested in you before you shell out thousands of dollars. Once he gets your money, he's short and impatient with you if you have questions or concerns. If you get a poor result he will try to blame you or tell you that something "outside" of his office must have happened. Just fix it man.

Dr. Cote spent approximately less than 10 minutes with me and I waited an hour and 50 minutes. Seems that something is wrong somewhere in the practice.

I was not impressed with Dr. Cote and the Associates of Otolaryngology. The best I can say about Dr. Cote is that he's competent; he did successfully perform my surgery. However, he rushed me through all of my appointments, never stopping to adequately answer my questions. He did not explain my surgery well enough. My appointments all started late. Then, I was rushed through the visit. I will not return to Associates of Otolaryngology.

For the first time in a very long time, I wasn't concerned with whether my doctor knew what he or she was doing. With Dr. Cote's background, training and certications, I knew I was in the right hands. I would definitely refer him to family and friends.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Cote. The front end and back end office staff is courteous, efficient and friendly. Dr. Cote was highly knowledgeable as well as kind and open to questions. He had a great way of explaining what he thought the medical issue was and the procedure he recommended (which quickly solved my problem by the way).
