      Very disappointed I have had pain in my hip for over a year I went to see this Dr to resolve the problem to get off pain medication and he told me I should not be using pain medication for this problem. He was rude very short never looked at my mri film then told me there was nothing he could do and went to walk out never offered to help with physical therapy a hip injection nothing I work in the medical field with orthopedic doctors I am aware of the things needed to help resolve the problem.

      It took months to get in because they misplaced my paperwork after receiving my referral. They called me three times to schedule an appointment after I'd already been scheduled. Dr. Coville was dismissive, rude, and interrupted me when I tried to talk. He snickered at the fact I'd even received an MRI, saying I shouldn't have had one. When showing me my MRI, he was looking at the wrong side of my ankle, which his assistant pointed out to him. Appointment lasted 3 or so minutes.
