Patient Comments (6)
Newark, Delaware |
Did not have the opportunity to see Dr Coker who came highly recommended. I called the office to set up an appointment and it appears the receptionist was having trouble with their "new system". I was placed on hold 3 times and had to give my information each time. The final hold time was without notice and that is when I hung up. I understand that the process, but putting me on hold and not even asking is where I draw the line. I would have been a new patient, but her front office ruined that

Took time to listen and explain diagnosis. Compassionate & genuine. Hands down the best doctor I have seen in this practice. The others I saw here were incompetent & actually made stuff up! Diagnosing things w/o having the actual info 2 do so! I wish she did surgery as she's the only I'd go back to & I only found her due to positive Health grades here...which as with all things take with a grain, as the other drs were rated highly but in my situations did not handle diagnosis right nor cared.

I had a deviated septum caused by a childhood injury which became life threatening due to other age related problems. I knew I needed the procedure if I was to have a better quality of life but was afraid. From the moment I walked into Dr. Coker's office the staff was very friendly. Dr. Coker put me at ease and assured me she could correct my problem. She performed the procedure with minimum discomfort to me. One year later my health has improved. Great Doctor and staff. Highly recommend.

I enjoy Doctor J Corker, she seems to be very honest and assure of her work. I like her joy of her making the visits fun, even when the medical report is not something you wanted to hear. Dr.Corker take the time to listen to how you feel. I like talking face to face with my doctor and she gives me that. From what I gather, I have to have surgery on my throat. I'm not happy about it, but as long the surgery is done by Dr. Corker I know that I'm in good hands. Dr.Corker is the BEST! No joke!
