  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Dr. Coles never followed through on anything. Said I was fat and that was my only problem. Come to find out I have a major disease he failed to find!

Very good but busy

Dr. Coles is a very good doctor, but it is hard to get an appointment because he is busy. He is knowledgeable, personable and does not talk down to his patients. This is a tough area to get a good rating, who is happy with a colonoscopy? I suspect that most of the best doctors are hard to get appointments with because they are good. I have been his patient for over ten years and have always been pleased with him.
