Sheboygan – Prevea Health is pleased to welcome Dr. John Coates, a child and adolescent psychiatrist specializing in psychiatric assessment and medication management for children and teenagers, with mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety and ADHD.
Dr. Coates sees patients at Prevea Behavioral Care, located at 3425 Superior Ave. in Sheboygan. He completed medical school at the University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences; residency at University of Toledo Medical Center; and a fellowship at Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. Coates is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
“In the treatment of children’s mental health, I believe in a thoughtful and cautious approach,” said Dr. Coates. “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 which approach is best.”
