He may answer one question if I'm lucky. Then says I'll see you next time. Visits last about 5 minutes with him. Supposed to have heart disease but doesn't tell me the extent. Been on a medication that can cause heart failure but doesn't address that either. Need to find someone competent. Tired of being treated like I don't matter and just taking my money for a 5 minute visit!!!

My father is almost 80 and has a few health issues. When he asked Dr Coats if he would give him a stress test to test his heart, he was told that it wouldn't be necessary because he would probably not be around long enough for it to matter. Extremely disappointing bedside manner. Not professional whatsoever.
