We were very pleased with the doctor and staff. The appointment was on time and we were very satisfied that our concerns were answered and a plan was made for care. All questions we had were taken care of by the doctor and his nurse. We were kept informed throughout the care.

The staff is excellent! Friendly, helpful and the check in process is a piece of cake! Dr. Coats is amazing! He takes the time you need so that you understand everything he is telling you before you leave the office. You feel like you are the only patient he has that day. His knowledge of vascular issues is OFF THE CHARTS!! We adore him, admire him, and thank him for keeping things for us "stable."

I appreciate not having too long of a wait for appointments. I also find Dr. Coats to be very informative concerning your health issue, & shows a real concern for you. He also gave a referral for an outstanding Dr. not connected with the need of his care.

Although I've only had an office visit so far, I was very pleased with Dr.Coats' approach to my varicose veins and DVT issues. Office staff was great, too, with actual phone follow-up!

Great bedside manner. He asks lots of questions about the problem. He answered my questions. I never felt rushed or like a number. I have already referred him to several friends! Fantastic and caring group of professionals... not a lot of that around these days!

Timothy Hundley – Jul 19, 2019
I was able to get an appointment almost immediately. Dr. Coats initially used the least invasive procedure to correct the problem. Not all of the blockage was removed. I was scheduled for a surgical procedure very soon afterward. The blockage was then cleared. Several follow up visits ensued. II found Dr. Coats to be very efficient and conscientious. I would highly recommend him.
