My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have been privileged to practice primary care medicine in a uniquely beautiful part of Michigan. As a physician in a rural area, I have had an opportunity to develop relationships with my patients which seem to exceed the traditional doctor-patient interactions we have come to expect in a medical practice. We are friends and trusting partners in our attempt to provide quality, yet personalized healthcare. Despite changes in the delivery of medical care, as an MDVIP-affiliated physician I will continue to maintain the close relationships with my patients, so that together we can achieve your health objectives in a caring and compassionate manner, while emphasizing wellness and prevention.

I am an attending physician at Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital in Frankfort, Michigan. As a family practice physician I have been trained to provide primary care for a wide range of individuals, from newborns through seniors. As my practice has matured, I find the majority of my patients are adults, although I continue to enjoy caring for children and young adults. I have practiced medicine in Frankfort for greater than thirty years. During this period I have had the opportunity to develop a relationship with many of my specialist colleagues in Traverse City. This has provided an easy transition for individuals requiring specialized care not available in Frankfort. Though I am trained in most aspects of primary care, I have special interests including Dermatology, Travel Medicine, Infectious Disease, Men’s Health and Sleep Medicine.

from Larry in MI March 2, 2018 for Douglas J. Coles, MD

In 2007, I was doubled up on the kitchen floor with unbelievable back pain. I had been twingey for about 2 weeks, but this episode prompted me to see Doug for a back exam. I was playing competitive softball against men half my age (60); had never smoked; took no meds; was not obese or diabetic;and, in short, I was a specimen of excellent health.
Dr. Coles did a complete exam and told me… See more
