Dr Gates performed two surgeries on me over the past year. His manner is extremely attentive and I have full confidence in his opinion and ability. His office kept up with me to see how I was doing and scheduled multiple post-op appointments so he could track my progress. He is a caring doctor, which is so appreciated.
