Dr. Coleman makes you feel very comfortable, a good listener, explains each step in detail and calls you to see how your doing. She was recommended by my primary care physician.

Dr. Coleman was the only surgeon who had the correct diagnosis for me. She is kind, compassionate, and very skilled. She is worth any waiting you might encounter! I'm very happy with my outcome and I trust her.

I first met Dr Coleman in 2005 after a diagnosis of breast cancer . She was calm , loving and very understanding guiding me every step of the way . A couple of years later I had the pleasure of her helping me remove my thyroid due to complications . 2014 she performed mastectomy !Once again I was in the best care and her expert delicate surgeon skill left me with no visible scar . She was very sure to make the scar on the right spot . I have no scar . Best surgeon around that's for sure .

Dr. Coleman is my mom's breast cancer surgeon, and we feel so grateful that she is. As soon as you visit her, you feel at ease and so comforted knowing she is there to help you answer any questions. Both of my parents had cancer, and she is by far the best surgeon or doctor I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Definitely wholeheartedly recommend her.
