Patient Comments (6)
Bowie, MD |
I had an extremely positive experience here. The staff was quick and attentive. Dr. Coates-Walton was professional yet amiable and caring. She prescribed a cream to help creepy skin and carefully provided cosmetic services. I highly recommend Dr. Coates Watson. The office even offered to have her stay slightly after closing to accommodate my hours.

I would not recommend this office. They are unprofessional and mess up scheduling all the time.
Alexandria, VA |
In the last year, scheduling with Dr. Walton has been a nightmare. Most recently, her office called me to reschedule on three separate occasions. This last time they called 30 mins prior to the appointment and the next available appointment isn't until January. I understand emergencies come up. Doctors are people too. However, I've been trying to get an appointment since October and these multiple reschedulings should at least get me higher priority for the next appointment. Very disappointing!
Brandywine, MD |
Horrible scheduling and the front desk lacks skills in professionalism. Dr. Coasts-Walton seems to tolerate the actions of her staff. And, she could do better with client teaching. Time for an upgrade in servicing the community. So disappointed. Do better.

Do not waste your time or money going to this Doctor! I too agree with the comments about her staff and their lack of professionalism. Dr. Coats-Walton's seems to have also changed since she no longer has her PA's there and is doing everything herself. I had a biopsy done by her that was a botched job and has cost me a lot of money and pain to attempt to attempt to correct. Don't let her cut on you or you will regret it!
Upper Marlboro, MD |
Her front office staff is horrible. Specifically Latasha. Just making an appointment is a struggle. I am always on a long hold. Any time they are suppose to call me back they don't. They aren't knowledgeable. The doctor herself is actually good. But her front staff is the absolute worst. I have been on hold plenty of times and the line will just hang up on me. I am on Accutane and I have a window in which I can get my prescriptions, so dealing with the front staff has been the worst. DO NOT COME
