    A compassionate and caring doctor who makes you feel like you are her only patient. Took time to answer every question and even drew pictures to help me better understand my cancer. She shared bits of her life with me as if we were friends and not doctor and patient.

    I am confident that I am in good hands and that she would take care of me as if I am a family member. She explains everything as simply and as matter of fact as possible with kindness, sensitivity and warmth, and oes not make you feel rushed.

    Went to consult with Dr Gates today regarding recent mammogram and biopsy report. Dr Gates is exceptionally knowledgeable, put me at total ease and was so kind and empathetic. I would have no hesitation recommending her to anyone who needs surgical referral and feel blessed to have found her.

    My wife is a patient of Dr Gates. Each visit I attended with her. On each visit Dr Gates failed to recognize the fact I was even there until I asked a question. I found that was strange for some reason. Rude is the word that comes to mind ! After I asked a question she seemed to lighten up?? John Morse
