“I found Dr. Coates in Dr. Datis Kharrazian’s book, Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms?, When My Lab Tests are Normal. Her study with Dr. Kharrazian added to her immense knowledge of the human body.

I came to Dr. Coates with many symptoms and a diagnosis of Hashimotos. My initial phone call to her instantly started my journey to better Health. My first visit with Dr Coates was 8/23/12.

A bit of my own history. I have 16 years experience as a Pediatric Physician’s Assistant. I also have a certification to teach Yoga, Nia, and Classical Pilates. Holistic Heath Care has been part of my life for many years.

Dr. Coates has opened my eyes. She has helped me understand and manage my health. Her compassion and knowledge is invaluable. I thought of myself as a very Holistic person and she has opened my eyes to a better understanding of what Naturopathic Medicine is and can do for me.

I am committed to my health and committed to working with Dr. Coates. I communicate with her when needed and have an appointment every six to eight weeks. Dr. Coates has given me my LIFE back. I feel the best I have felt in years and plan to continue my journey of health with her. She is part of my health care team, which includes my Primary Care Doctor and my Well Woman Nurse Practitioner.”
