Dr. Desmond Coates
Hello everyone, my name is Dr. Coates. I was born in Fayetteville, Arkansas but raised in Memphis, TN. Throughout my childhood I had always wanted to be a veterinarian. My late Uncle Bryant used to raise and breed Miniature Schnauzers and German Shepherds. I went to The University of Tennessee-Knoxville for both undergraduate and veterinary degrees. My special interests are ophthalmology, dentistry, and soft tissue surgery. 
 
My wife and I moved to Philadelphia in July of 2022. We are excited to explore the rich history and food scene that the city provides. We would love to hear any recommended food spots if you all have any. Other interests of mine include playing soccer, anime and manga, sports, and community service. I am a proud member of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Incorporated and I have been a part of the organization since Spring 2013. I’m looking forward to meeting new and established clients. I want to say that your fur babies will be safe with me. (In this picture is my sweet and sassy cat Violet that we adopted from Morris Animal Refuge. She was not pleased with this photo.)
