In 2013 I seen Dr. Coons for a knee injury caused by a long boarding accident and also from being misdiagnosed and wrongly treated elsewhere. He put me through an MRI and seen I had no ACL left in my knee and both my meniscus' were torn. It was insane that I had been walking on it all that time. Dr. Coons saved my knee and literally made my knee brand new. I recovered in 9 months and was able to play for a college basketball team that I played for, for 2 years. I Definitely recommend him.

My first time seeing Dr Coons for knee pain. I'm 60 years old, and have seen a lot of physicians in my lifetime, both male and female. Some are grouchy, some condescending, some don't listen, some do. Some seem like you are imposing on their time with your visit. Some have been good, some just okay. Dr. Coons is none of these things. He's a genuine person. He went over my condition in detail. It was like being seen by a family member. My only regret is that he can't be my primary physician.

Dr Coons is very professional and down to earth. I feel like he tries every option before he mentions the operate word. I especially how he made me feel at ease as he gave me shots in both knees! Kudos to Dr Coons!!!
