I have been seeing Dr. Gates for approximately 5 years, and doing that time I have found it easy to discuss any health issues I maybe dealing with. She has gotten me through sever back pain, and most of the problems I have encountered with my auto immune condition. She is an excellent doctor and I am glad she is mine.

Dr. Gates is always friendly, thorough and professional. She easy to talk to and when I am there, she never seems rushed to move on to the next patient. Also, she can relate to wonen’s pysical and emotional issue in a way that a male doctor would never understand.

I've been a patient of Dr. Gates for almost 8 years and have received nothing but kind, professional and patient treatment. Her nurse Mary Catherine is a real jewel. I hope she comes back after she has her baby.

When we feel bad, sick and in pain, physical or emotional, we are seeking relief, comfort and a well qualified person to diagnose what may be wrong and advise us. Dr Donna Gates offers all that and so much more! She is friendly, always listening carefully, sharing her views clearly, making sure she covered all of the concerns one may have, and all of that very efficiently and timely!
