Ratings for Dr. Chad Coles
I can't say enough about Dr.Coles. He is one of the best. I was very lucky to have him. I had 2 surgeries on my leg and I will be walking again with my leg thanks to Dr. Coles. He told us his plan up front and everything worked out great. He is always calm and in control and you can understand him and he always answers your concerns. Highly Highly recommend. Thanks again Dr. Chad Coles.
Not very happy with the handling of my appointment. I broke a bone in my foot 8 weeks ago, emerg put me in a non weight bearing cast, then cut the side of my leg cutting off the cast after advising me not to worry the saw wouldn't cut. I was told to get an aircast. At 5 weeks I saw Dr. Coles he said its not long enough to tell if foot was healing come back in 3 weeks. In that 3 weeks my foot has pained more than the day the injury happened. I had every intention on telling him to put me back in the non-weight bearing cast if my foot would heel faster as I was feed up and willing to risk them cutting my leg again removing a normal cast if we decided to put one on. I was in that much pain to risk it. I had my xray before the apt with Dr. Coles and he sent in his resident to talk to me instead of seeing me himself. The entire time I could see Dr. Coles seeing other patients. The resident advised me that my foot was completely heeled, resume normal activity I could not harm the break area by walking on it. I said thats great the bone is healed but why am I in so much pain? He was going to check with Dr. Coles but felt it was perfectly fine to get out of the boot and carry on. I said I would like to see Dr. Coles please. A number of minutes later, the resident advised me that he had gone to a meeting and couldn't see me for another hour, at this point that would have been 3 hours Ive been at the hospital. My appointment was with Dr. Coles and I feel I should of meet with him not only the resident. I don't feel proper care was given and very disappointed.
I came to Dr. Coles from Bridgewater with a broken tibia and crushed meniscus after a less than happy experience in South Shore Regional Emergency. From the time I entered the hospital to the day I was released as his patient, he was great. He has a great bedside manner, creates confidence in his patients, and knows what he is doing,. His team is equally organized. The outcome was even better than I had expected at the age of 70. I have no pain, no limp and the scaring in minimal. I consider myself very fortunate to have had him as my surgeon/doctor.
I broke my tibia in August, Dr Cole put me back together, along with a plate, screws and a bone graft. He explained clearly what he was doing and why. For my follow up apts, he takes the time to answer my many questions, and show me the updated x-rays. You may have to wait a bit in the clinic, but that's because he is focused on his patients. With any further questions, I can leave a msg with his office, and they get the answer back to me in a timely fashion. Thank-you Dr Cole for all that you do.
Landed in ER with broken right femur, 11broken ribs and a crushed left ankle which was so badly injured that I was told i might lose the foot. Dr. Coles took me on and after 2 surgeries on the ankle, and fixing the femur, I am walking again. I am so thankful for Dr. Coles . He is the smartest, kindest surgeon I have ever known. He goes out of he way to assist you in any way he can. I am forever grateful .
Dr Coles attended me in the ER for a broken femur in 2012-13..It would be hard to express enough gratitude to him for his professional care. I wish him all the best with his wonderful project in Haiti as he is a very caring ( and handsome) doctor. Respectfully...Nancy Smyth
