So I cant wait to come back and share the new lease on life we can have: Thank you all at CVBS."
"Dr Coates son will be performing my surgery. Staff is wonderful. They take the time to answer all my questions. I’ve had over 5 different people call to confirm my surgery date and to assure me I will be taken care of"
"Best decision I ever made! I'm 10mo out and 130lb lighter! No more medications for blood pressure, Stomach issues it anything. I feel amazing. I love my tool. Thank you Dr Coirin for changing my life and saving it."
"I have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Patrick Coates. He has a fantastic bedside manner and treats his patients with the utmost care, both mentally and physically I have felt cared for by his staff and him the day of my surgery. I can't recommend him highly enough."
"I truly wish i would of had my surgery sooner...never to late...Best decision i made...Dr Coates ...Thank you,your the Best in my book...God Bless u always...."
"Dr Antonio Coirin is by far the best surgeon I've seen. I was paired with him sight unseen, and later found out how lucky I am to have him as my physician. He's skilled, patient, compassionate & thoughtful at every approach. Most surgeons are all done w/you post surgery, but not him.. he's very careful in monitoring the patient & addresses issues head-on. Whether weight loss surgery, or other surgical procedures he's the surgeon you want treating you. Dr Coirin gave me the gift of getting my life back. I can't thank him enough. Top notch!"
"I rate Dr. Patrick Coates five out five because he is an amazing bariatric surgeon if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be getting my life and health back on track. I highly appreciate Dr. Patrick Coates."
"I am speaking from my experience thus far. I have not had my surgery yet but I am scheduled in a month. I have private PPO insurance and I am going in for a Distal Revision procedure. NONE of my visits leading up to pre-authorization were covered by my insurance even though they accept my insurance and I was approved for surgery. This is MY INSURANCE COMPANIES POLICY, not a office policy. ( ALL INSURANCE COMPANIES HAVE THEIR OWN POLICIES SO MAKE SURE YOU ASK YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY FOR THEIR POLICIES AND PROCEDURES LEADING UP TO PRE-AUTH) I had RNY back in 2006 in San Francisco at UCSF and I have regained about 80% of my lost weight due to 3 pregnancies and medication. My primary care doctor did a referral and it took a very long time to get scheduled in for my consultation. I was eventually told I had to have imaging of my stomach and intestines done at Modesto Advanced Diagnostic Imaging. Once I was made aware of that and had that done I got in quickly! The staff is awesome!! I highly advise EVERYONE to HAVE PATIENCE and be POLITE! Their nutritionist are amazing and the Facebook support page they run for all patients is AWESOME! I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED JOINING once you become a patient. They also host get togethers (such as Christmas parties) for their patients to get together and support one another and give patients who have lost weight a comfortable environment to dress up post-op and begin to enjoy their new body and socialize with fellow patient's. The staff truly does their best but weight loss surgery is in VERY HIGH DEMAND and there are patients from all over the central valley and even from the bay area who come here for their surgery. With proper care for ALL pre and post op patients it is a VERY VERY BUSY OFFICE and the only other office is in Stockton. They are very strict on their schedules and if you miss your scheduled appointments for diet doctor reviews you will start the process over. THE STAFF IS ALWAYS AMAZING and if they can't help you they will find someone who can help. PLEASE be mindful of newly hired employees who are being trained and doing their best, we all have been in their position of being a new hire in the past and proper staffing at a very busy office like Cantral California Surgery IS VITAL! I will do a update once I am a post op patient!"
