Patient Comments (2)
in Los Angeles, CA |
Absolutely neglected my mother. He constantly went on vacation or left the office for weeks at a time. He flat out ignored my mother's disability paperwork he needed to fill out, resulting in her losing her home and living in her car. When informed of his mistake he took no responsibility. His staff lie to patients just to get them off the phone saying "We will call you right back." Or "We'll tell the doctor right away." And they never do.

Dr. Coats, our family Dr. for over 25 years. We have followed through many office changes. He is friendly, caring, kind and compassionate. His nurse is the same. However, the current clerical staff are incompetent and unprofessional. Obtaining prescriptions, authorizations, etc...is a nightmare & our pharmacy, therapists and other Dr's offices are now too familiar with. Our 27 yr old son is extremely ill (degenerative disorder) and this treatment is no longer acceptable.
