Patient Comments (2)
Santa Cruz, CA |
Extremely kind, knowledgeable, and an all around great doctor. Strongly recommend!
in Santa Cruz, CA |
My family has seen Dr. Coulson for years. I find him easy to talk to - he listens and responds to concerns, is empathetic and friendly. He seems balanced about recommending testing and treatment, vs allaying concerns that I may have that don't require either. I/we have been happy with Dr. Coulson as our doctor, as well as the clinic overall.
