This doctor is a God send for me. He listens. He explains that there is a lot to sift through so we have to tease things out carefully. He is gentle and kind and most of all he is actually helping me bit by bit. It is taking time but he told me it would. He is always available to me with a great attitude and speaks honestly. I have been to many foot doctors. Dr Coulter stands way out in front of them all in all categories in a positive manner.

Dr. Coulter is a very competent and thorough provider. After my pre-surgery visit, I had a question that I sent to him via VM secured messaging. I was expecting an e-mail response. However Dr. Coulter called me at home to make sure I understood a response, and then went another extra step to see if I had any other questions. He is an outstanding provider.
