Desmond X. Coates, DVM

Hello everyone my name is Desmond Xavier Coates. I was born in Fayeteville, Arkansas, and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. I decided to become a Veterinarian when I was in 6th grade. Growing up my favorite T.V. channel was The Animal Planet because I enjoyed seeing and learning about animals. I started my collegiate journey at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Sciences Pre-Vet Concentration. I was then fortunate enough to be accepted into the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, where I graduated in May 2022.
My wife and I are excited to move to Philadelphia and explore the city’s rich history. Some of my interests include sports, anime, supporting the United States Men’s and Women’s Soccer Team, painting, and food. (My wife and I are huge foodies and I would love to hear about any of the local spots). In addition, I am a proud member of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Incorporated. I am looking forward to starting my career with Society Hill Animal Hospital and meeting current and future clients. Your fur babies will be safe with me.
