John Coates, M.D.

Medical School - UAMS

As a native Arkansan, I enjoy fishing and being outdoors. I graduated from Cave City High School and went to Lyon College for undergrad. I met my wife Charis while studying medicine at UAMS and we have a wonderful one year old son, Crue. The best part about this residency for me is providing care to a population of which I’m very familiar and being able to collaborate and learn from a passionate and knowledgeable faculty. We really are like family here which I think is what this specialty is all about.
