I've been a patient of Dr. Coates for almost a decade. In that time he's seen me and my kids for a variety of issues. Dr. Coates and his staff are very professional and in 10-years I've had no reason to even think of looking for another PCP.

Dr. Louis Coates is one of the most respectful, professional, and easy to deal with doctor I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. I had a negative experience upon my first attempt at an appointment as a first time, uninsured patient, but within a matter of hours, Dr. Coates addressed me personally and offered a follow up visit on generous terms. His work greatly improved the quality of my life. He is absolutely NOT a pill pusher, as some reviews have suggested, rather cautious/conserv

Dr. Coates allows Soza weight loss clinic to operate in his office. The office is filthy and there was no one there when I walked in the front door which was left open.

I wish I could put zero stars. Worst doctors visit ever. I came in for a physical and general wellness check. I gave the MA a list of my concerns non of which were addressed by Dr. Coates. I waited got over an hour to see the doctors and he spent 9 minutes with me. I was rushed out with no answers to any of my questions. I've very disappointment a drove all that way to see him and wasted a big chunk of my day. Will not be returning.

Wow. Wow, wow, WOW! I have been through the ringer the past 4-5 months of insurance issues, having to change doctors, and the whole mess. Sadly, I am perscribed psychiatric medications that are, unforetuneately, abused (Anxiety and ADHD). Where other Doctors threatened me and treated me horrible, Dr. Coates was understanding, welcoming, and SO warm and friendly. His staff is SO respectful. You can tell they have good management, and it shows. I will go to Dr. Coates for life. PERIOD.

Overall the visits were a waste of time. It took his staff over a month and a half to get a ref-feral to a pediatric neurologist done for my daughter. I had to ask to have an EEG done and MRI because had been having seizures weekly. Once the MRI and EEG are scheduled I show up and they are unable to do them because the Dr. had not had the MRI scheduled without contrast and the EEG was not done because that facility does not do them on minors...
