Director of Inpatient Family Practice
MD, UC San Francisco
BS, UC Davis
Dr. Coe has worked with the residency program since 1988, initially part-time while in private practice, then full time since 1996. He grew up in the SF Bay Area, graduating with a BS in Zoology from UC Davis in 1977. Before applying to medical school, he went to NIH as a “normal volunteer” in 1978, where he met his future wife, Ann. He attended medical school at UCSF, while Ann finished her undergraduate education at UCD before starting veterinary school. Residency was at the Shasta-Cascade Family Practice Program, with the first year at UCD Medical Center, and the last two at the now-closed Shasta General Hospital in Redding. Private practice lasted 8 years, including an active OB practice.
In addition to family medicine, Dr. Coe is interested in HIV medicine and works at Shasta Community Health Center monthly in the HIV clinic. Personal interests include the natural history of Northern California, zoonotic diseases, hiking, camping and long-distance cycling. He has a son and daughter, the latter finishing her clinical cases for her LPCC in Santa Rosa. Ann has retired from veterinary medicine, but is frequently consulted for her expertise.
