Patient Comments (7)
I've never met a more caring and thorough physician across any medical specialty. Dr. Coleman is accommodating, professional, a great listener and will do everything possible to avoid surgery until your quality of life calls for a procedure. Dr. Coleman explains everything. I feel safe and really "taken care of," and there are few doctors who fit that criteria. He perfectly fixed both of my hips. I also give 5 stars to Dr. Coleman's staff, who are incredibly patient and go above and beyond.

An overall good experience, including the support staff. I saw Dr Coleman for a ruptured hamstring repair. He was professional and courteous, explaining the injury and the recommended treatment fully, and most importantly, he answered all my questions. After 6 months I'm back to my usual activities and fingers crossed, I won't re-injure myself.

Dr. Coleman repaired my son's fractured cartilege hip and torn labrum in 2012. My son was back to playing Division 1 soccer in 8 months and has been going strong ever since. We loved his staff and even working through the billing was an effortless process. Thank you.
I LOVE coming to this office. Dr. Coleman is super-smart & the office staff is attentive & friendly. It's always a pleasure to come here
