Dr. Bates is "old school" and reminds me of going to the doc when I was young. He has great bedside manners and is very thorough and knowledgeable in his practice. He and his assistant Terri show the kind of care and compassion that is hard to find these days. I would recommend his clinic. ~John 66 yr old male

I have been going to Dr Bates my whole life! He is very thorough and takes the time nessasary. Terri (Dr Bs nurse) can put a smile on anybodys face. She's funny, quick witted, but at the sametime shows great concern. They sure dont make em like these two anymore.

When I arrived the secretary/nurse I scheduled the appointment with 4 days earlier didn't have me scheduled for an appt. Once I finally saw Dr. Bates I told him I had been using a warm compress, bacitracin and band-aids to treat an infected cut. Dr. Bates then gave me one band-aid and sample of bacitracin and told me to do exactly what I was already doing. The bill for that was $200.He told me to come BACK 5 days later so he could evaluate (more $). Huge waste of money and unprofessional staff!!
