What People Say About Dr. Philip Coff, MD

Dr Coff is an extremely busy doctor. He spends most of his 60 hour week in surgery. Knowing that I thought my personal office appointment would be short and somewhat of a "cattle drive." Was I ever wrong. He was thoughtful, kind and never for a moment did I feel rushed.

Dr. Coff provides a no nonsense approach to his appointments so you are not left wondering about if there is a need for further care or not. He takes care of the whole family when the situation presents itself. Dr. Coff is thorough and does not hesitate in referring to other specialists with greater studies in an area of illness when he feels that the condition has gone past his capabilities. Dr. Coff is very much appreciated in our family.

I was very frustrated after my colonoscopy. All went well and the outcome was positive but I experienced a lot of pain after the procedure. When I called the office I could not get an appointment for 6 weeks. I remember nothings of the conversation and relied on a report from my GP. I had specific questions I was told I could as after and was never allowed that opportunity. I was only seen as a referral and had no office appointments

Awful experience almost every step of the way. Rude staff, delays in procedures, office visits, and hearing back about biopsy results. Asked me five questions total about my 20+ year history of GERD, and then recommended OTC zantac, as if I hadn't already told him I tried it without relief. Don't waste your time or health here.

Dr. Coff, his assistant Stacie, and all the staff, are the best. Professional, straight-forward, and kind. These people are busy caring for many. You'll never experience "small-talk" but you will be taken care of 100% by a Dr. that knows what he's doing! And, a wonderful staff supporting that effort. If you are in need as I have been & still are, you can trust Dr. Goff, Stacie, and this office.

I am thankful for the efforts of Dr. Coff and his staff. They have dedicated their lives to learning and practicing the skill to help us live better and longer. Dr. Coff removed a polyp and a mucosal lesion that could have developed problems for me. He also prescribed Omeprazole, it is working very well to help with acid reflux. I wish I had been told about this medication by my doctors in the past. Thanks Dr. Coff.
