He was suppose to remove a carpel tunnel blockage, but failed to do so completely. It has been five months since the surgery, and my wrist still has moderate to severe pain and severe swelling. My wrist never had pain before the surgery. It only was numb. I still wake up with it numb and throbbing. Dr. Gates only removed 50% of the blockage. Plus, he left my hand swollen and infected. His ego seems to get in the way of his ability to care for his patients. He has ruined my hand.

Dr Gates maybe a good Dr, but his social skills and Patient to Dr relationship is deplorable
Naples, FL |
Post surgery event raised some questions/concern. Dr. Gates made it clear by verbal and non-verbal manner he does not welcome or appreciate any questions. We got the impression that if he is half as good a surgeon as he thinks he is, he must be the best. Maybe so. But his manner needs work.
