Robbinsville, NC |
Dr. Gates is a wonderful doctor! He takes his time and is very considerate.
|
One of the most caring, compassionate, knowledgeable doctors I have ever met. If he ever retires from his practice, he should seek a professorship teaching bedside manner - this seems to be a lost art among many physicians today and one at which he excels.

I found Dr.Gates to be a very caring Doctor, he cares very much for his patients, he does all he can to listen and explain everything to you about you surgery. So you feel at ease and you know without any doubt you can trust him completely. I give him 10 stars if I could and I recommand him to everyone. GOD Bless Dr Gates
