Dr. Coker is the best. Her advice is always fantastic and her intuition is exceptional. She really seems to care for her patients and takes the time to check in on me frequently. She seems genuinely concerned with my issues and is always there to help. She is wonderful. This app is wonderful. I’m so glad I did this. And I sing praises about this app and Dr. Coker to all that will listen. Thanks again!

Even though we're not face to face, Dr. Coker always seems to understand exactly what I'm trying to say and what I need to work on. She checks in frequently but doesn't push for you to open up. I was hesitant about doing this online but she's helped make it very easy.
