I had herniated my L - 4 disk to the point of needing surgery. Dr. Coats performed laser surgery on me 4/30/2000. Seventeen years later I'm still amazed at how my back has held up. Not one problem since surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Coats into My Family and Friends.

Excellent physician

Dr. Coats exceeded my expectations. He is very professional and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable with his diagnosis and with his opinion to proceed with surgery. He did an excellent job on my back surgery. His bedside manners were great. He saw me everyday I was in the hospital and even stepped in and took over when the nurses didn't have my pain regulated. I have nothing but the highest regard for Dr. Coats and would certainly recommend him.

He gave me my life back....

Dr Coats was highly recommended to me and while it took me three months to get in with him...he was worth the wait. He performed a difficult, almost 14 hr surgery on my spine and my results are fantastic! I healed perfectly..and its now 10 mo since surgery & I feel great! Dr Coats gave me my life back...I thank God for him and I highly recommend him as a surgeon...he is worth it...no matter how long you have to wait!
