Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Oates rebuilt my heel after I shattered it. He was very kind and informative during the whole procedure. My pain level has gone down to nothing since my surgery and I'm expecting to make a full recovery.

His approach to my condition/injury was conservative and comforting. He gave constructive advice and information to help me recover from the stress fracture in my foot.

Dr. Oates performed a bunionectomy and corrected a hammertoe on one foot last year. Dr. Oates is performing the same surgery on the other foot later this year. He is the greatest!

Dr Oates is rude, condescending, and speaks to patients like they are ignorant. I would not recommend his services to anyone.
