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!
