Testimonials from patients of Dr. Coney
I’ve been a patient of Robert’s for 25+ years. I remember walking in the old office on Peachtree and seeing the landscape photographs hanging in the waiting room that looked like the only thing missing in each one was either a four wheel drive Jeep or a howling wolf. Then after meeting Dr. Coney and hearing of his passion for the outdoors, hiking and photography it all made sense, my wife had… See more
Dr. Coney has been our primary physician for more than 20 years. He has seen us through some trying times. He not only cares about our health issues, he cares about us personally. The all the years we have been going to him, he has always been available when we needed him and given us the time and attention required. I suffered severe case of sepsis on a weekend. My son got him on Dr.… See more
In the spring of 1995 I experienced what I concluded was either an eminent stroke or a some other neurological issue. The M.D. that I was using at the time was not available to see me but I was advised that Dr. Coney had joined the practice two days earlier and that he could see me. Dr. Coney correctly diagnosed the problem and referred me to a specialest. Over the next several years Dr.… See more
Being with Dr. Coney through MDVIP has been excellent for me. I like being able to contact him during non office hours but I really appreciate it when he checks in about issues I may have going on of his own accord. I feel it's invaluable to establish a relationship with a doctor and Dr. Coney demonstrates this by going beyond the basic requirements.
Thank you Dr. Coney

cynthia and I have been so happy with the care you and your staff have provided. your thoughtfulness, expertise and availability have been nothing short of phenomenal. as a physician myself, I perceive you as exemplifying the very best of our profession's aspirations. thank you so very much.
Dr. Robert Coney literally saved my life this past July when he recognized that I was in septic shock and got me into ICU immediately. This all happened on a late Saturday afternoon and he was available by cellphone. Had he not been, I don't know what would have happened. I will forever be grateful.
I have always enjoyed his careful attention to detail and his ability to listen without jumping to premature conclusions- it is also nice to have a physician who treats you as if you may have some good sense and some appreciation of the pertinent facts
