  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
I've been going to see Dr. Coulter for over 15 years. He is professional and during the appointment, his focus is on me. He remembers my medical history and strives to manage ongoing issues. I trust him completely and do not second guess either his opinion or his care recommendations.

Thank you Dr. Coulter for your care.

Dr. Coulter's suggestion for changing the way my athletic shoes are laced is a GAME-CHANGER! I'm so happy that he taught the alternate way of lacing my athletic shoes. The top of my feet felt better instantly (still working on the soles, but optimistic they will improve too.) I shared the lacing technique with a friend who was really excited about using it too.

*Dr. Coulter is the best DPM I've seen (4 prior - multiple MRI's, Cat, x-rays, ultrasound). He is the only DPM who found anything wrong with a foot that has been swollen and painful continuously for four years. he found a real issue (Longitudinally torn tendon). *Dr. Coulter (see above) -> that requires surgery. It had been going on so long that it is fairly urgent. He nailed it in 2 visits. Plus, he's kind and patient. Best doc for sure.
