This is the Best Dr I have ever encountered. He saved my husbands life with multiple severe health problems. He is intelligent, quick to diagnosis and does not waste time doing so. He takes all of his patients seriously and listens. If it wasn't for his quick diagnosis and swift treatments my husband would not be here today. God Bless you Dr Coates. I have referred him a lot and did so today! The Nix's
