What People Say About Dr. Tamara Coates, MD
Reply
We saw Dr. Coates a few months ago as first time parents. She was abrupt and would not answer our questions. We were very new to this pregnancy thing and had some serious concerns that she refused to check out or answer our questions about. She ran tests w/o telling us what they were for and we were startled and upset when we got a call about results we weren't even expecting. She is very unprofessional and creates stress. I don't recommend seeing her especially if you're a 1st time parent.
