Horrible experience with Dr. Coates. Was going to him to have the Duodenal Switch weight loss surgery and found out by accident that he was not going to perform the surgery I wanted, but something he felt was better. He was going to do this without consulting me first, without having my permission to do so and without telling me the truth afterwards. Dr. Coates is not to be trusted. BEWARE!

This monster did bypass surgery on my sister may 29, 2015, she was never the same after we took her to ER 17 times with severe stomach pain and issues! she would call his office for questions and never would get a call back from him probably came to see her once in hospital and he kept saying oh it's normal you'll get better she never did, on February 28th she ended back in hospital and now her kidneys are failing now there's nothing they could do, my beautiful sister died that day March 2016!
