My experience with Dr. Coker was wonderful. I had terrible knee pain, which we diagnosed in just a couple of minutes. I had been to 2 other Orthopedic doctors with no relief. Within 2 weeks I had surgery and I’ve gone o. To normal activity in 11 days. His staff is courteous and answered all my questions.

He has a pretty good bedside manner, but the treatment left a lot to be desired. I had a knee scope done on workers comp and 2 rounds of physical therapy. Here it is 3 years later and I'm still in pain. Nothing got resolved. I'm now seeing a different orthopedic doctor and paying out of my own pocket to fix my knee. Just with the one treatment I've had, it already feels a lot better. I had heard good things about him before hand, but unfortunately I will never go back.

I was impressed with the care I received from Dr. Coker and his staff. Not only was a great diagnostician, he treated me with respect and caring. He did surgery on me knee for a torn meniscus and I recovered in half the time it took compared to a friend who had his done by another local surgeon. Great surgeon - I would recommend him to everyone.
