Dr. Coles performed a total knee replacement for me on January 7, 2019. My leg is now straight and 6 weeks out I am returning to work. I am walking with no pain and can climb stairs easily. He took time to answer questions with each visit and spent time explaining the procedure and what I could expect after surgery. In the future, I will need to have my right knee done and I plan to have Dr. Coles perform the surgery.

Dr. Coles did a partial knee replacement for me in 2013. I have been pain free since a testament to the skill of Dr Coles. In 2015 Dr Coles replaced my total shoulder. My results were remarkable and I have been pain free since the surgery. If I need surgery again I would not hesitate to ask for Dr Coles. I found him to be informative, caring and an exceptional surgeon.

I am very pleased with the services provided by Sarah Bedard PA and Dr Robert Coles for a meniscal tear. They were clear in their communications and personable. They did a super job describing the treatment and recovery, and making sure I stayed on course. I felt comfortable because they each accurately described what to expect. I can tell they have loads of experience. They also repaired my husbands rotator cuff last year and he's as pleased as me!!! Organized staff, mormal wait times.

Dr. Coles did a knee replacement for me last April. He was courteous, and extremely helpful. When I had a problem, he got me in immediately and took care of me. My knee healed great, I have a minimal scar and full use of my knee again with no pain whatsoever. Thanks Dr. Cole! My mom needs a hip replacement and I'm recommending you :)

Had a TKR in Aug 2015. Dr. Cole and his staff took very care of me. He took the time to explain everything to me. He was back in my room early the next day after surgery checking on me. Sara his PA came in to see me several times. The staff at the hospital was great. The food was above what I expected. I am now having problems with my other knee. I am going back in to see Dr. Cole about it. If needed I will have him do the other knee. Bruce
