This review is solely based on receptionist- not helpful in any way. Was rude. Took phone number and never called back. Disappointing.
Colton, CA |
Greatest experience ever! I had gastric bypass five months ago. Consult, approval, surgery, care, and so much attention from Dr. Coon and all of his staff. Family like feeling in the office. So happy and no complications!

Dr. Coon has that country Doctor bedside manner. He is patient, soft spoken and most of all professional and honest about your procedure. Sometimes your wait is a little long, but no one seems to mind because he gives you the time needed to discuss and answer any questions you may have. Also, it fords you the time to visit with others and their experiences. It has been over five years and I have NOT gain the weight back. If you are considering WL surgery, I recommend Dr. Coon.
