Ft Washington, PA |
I have been a patient here for many years. Dr. Coats has a great demeanor and his staff is always friendly and helpful.
Lansdale, PA |
He is rude and abrupt. If you're looking for bedside manner, this is not the place. I've seen him twice - both times he'd just eaten bad smelling foods and there was a significant odor.
