Find a doctor
With more than 400 providers and 2,000+ skilled employees across the state of Wisconsin, Prevea Health makes it easy to find the right physician for you and your family. Our highly-trained doctors understand that every patient is different and their focus is on helping every individual achieve their personal goals for a lifetime of good health and happiness.
When searching for the right doctor for you and your family at Prevea Health, you will likely notice some of our doctors have a (MD) or a (DO) listed after their name. This refers to the most common type of credentialing or degrees earned by doctors practicing medicine in the United States.
Prevea is also the home of two Family Medicine Residency Programs, in Eau Claire and Green Bay, Wisconsin. Resident Physicians have a medical degree (MD, DO) – signifying the completion of medical school. During medical school, in addition to advanced science coursework, medical students complete two years of direct patient care in multiple medical specialties.
Other providers within our healthcare system with thousands of hours of medical training, advanced degrees and certifications from the state include nurse practitioners, physician assistants and midwives.
John Coates, MD
My first and most important task is to understand each child's unique place in the world. As I gather information, I piece together an image of their life and their struggles. I aim to assess each child and family separate from any past treatment, and determine what approach is best.
It is my goal to collaborate with patients and families to find what works. When the time comes to share my recommendations, I am honest. Deciding whether or not to medicate your child is a huge decision, and I want each family to make the right choice for them."
