Specialties

Dr. Cecil H Coggins has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

I would highly recommend Dr. Coggins. He's been my primary care physician for almost 10 years now, and even though I've move out of state, I continue to keep him as my PCP. I am so happy and satisfied with his bedside manner, his interest in me and my health as a whole person, and his genuine care and concern about any and all health issues - not to mention his credentials and experience. The only reason I will ever "switch" doctors will be when he retires (or when I need an OB-GYN closer to home, if I get pregnant). His attention to detail and genuine care & concern are what make him so special. He is a gem of a doctor, and I feel blessed to have him as mine!

Dr Coggins is the best doctor around

I've been a long time patient of Dr. Coggins. He is extremely compassionate and very down to earth. The front office is always very busy. The wait time can be 20+ minutes, but it's worth the wait. Dr. Coggins listens attentively to patients' concerns and treats everyone with courtesy. He is highly intelligent and keeps up with the latest research. I'm fortunate to have him as my doctor.
