About Edward F. Coles, M.D.

Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?

Gastroenterology allows me to develop long term relationships with many interesting patients from all walks of life. Unlike most surgical fields, I see people at varying intervals of their lives. I can utilize the intellectual side of Internal medicine in taking a history and doing a physical, formulate a differential diagnosis then do a procedure to diagnose and treat many conditions. It is a very technical field that is always changing and innovating.

Do you have a specialty of interest within GI?

I love all aspects of this field, and I particularly enjoy teaching the many skills needed to be a competent Gastroenterologist. Prevention of cancers, Cirrhosis, etc. is particularly appealing. It is always satisfying to take a critically ill patient in the ICU and do a minimally invasive procedure to turn them around in minutes. Just a few years ago they would have needed a huge operation or even passed away.

Where did you study?

Undergrad: University of San Diego, Medical School: Georgetown University School of Medicine, Internship and Residency: Letterman Army Medical Center, Fellowship: Brooke Army Medical Center.

What certifications do you hold?

Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. Fellow in the American College of Gastroenterology and Fellow of the American College of Physicians.

What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?

We enjoy traveling together, fishing, hiking and hunting. We spend a lot of time at our ranch outdoors. We volunteer at our church and are active in the soup kitchen.

Do you have any special honors or recognitions in your medical career that you would like to share?

I have been named Super Doctor as a top Texas Physician by Texas Monthly Magazine for many years. Likewise, I have been named a Top Doctor in Austin area for many years by Austin Monthly Magazine. I was awarded Jr AOA in medical school. My favorite awards were given to me in my training years as the top over graduate from all training programs in the medical center in San Francisco and Top resident teacher award given by the intern class of the medical center.

Do you fluently speak any other languages in addition to English?

Spanish.

Please list your professional affiliations.

Staff member at several hospitals in our area, member of the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce and General and Executive Board of Directors for TDDC.

Reviews

I highly recommend Texas Digestive Disease Consultants (TDDC) and Dr. Edward Coles. TDDC and Dr. Coles demonstrated the highest level of professionalism, competency and thoroughness while still being down to earth and accessible. After the procedure, Dr. Coles briefed me on the results which were also available online and sent through the mail. The detailed report included photos, analysis, future and family recommendations and behaviors than might help reduce reoccurrence’s. Educational materials were also included. I was fortunate that my primary care recommended them for they are truly the best. Thank you!

Since I was a marketing consultant for a large group of pathologists, I've had a lot of dealings with Gastroenterologists. Dr. Coles has been my choice for my personal care and those I love. To say he is good, is an understatement. He is GREAT. He listens, and treats accordingly. I now live in Okla but I make a trip to this area.....just to see him.

Nobody looks forward to a colonoscopy or upper GI exam. I’ve had both before and they weren’t a problem. However, Dr. Coles and his staff explained everything in easy to understand words and I was very comfortable in talking to Dr. Coles about my medical history. I was given instructions and everything needed to prepare for this upcoming event. I feel prepared, but still not looking forward to it.
