Had a wonderful experience at my appointment with Dr Coons. The staff was friendly, welcoming and very efficient. My wait time was minimal and Dr Coons was genial, attentive, knowledgeable and put me at ease with his easy going demeanor. I highly recommend making an appointment with Dr Coons.

Dr Coons saved my life by covering all possible reasons for my severe scalp disorder which was bacterial, fungal plus a chronic condition. He took exquisite care of massive wounds. He was reassuring, encouraging, specific with his instructions for home care, and my result is highly successful. I would have been in an entirely different situation had I not had him as my doctor. I highly recommend him. He is an extremely capable, kind, sensitive and patient centered surgeon.
