Excellent, would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Cates is very knowledgeable, friendly and commicates well with patients. I was so pleased to have him do my surgery to donate a kidney to Will Brown. He did an excellent job and explained everything that he was going to do..

I have been a patient of Dr. Cates for 3 years, could not have found a better surgeon. He has done a major surgery on me in 2014 and followed my care since. He is very easy to talk with, he makes sure that you understand everything before you leave his office. He will be doing another surgery on me soon and I know he will do everything possible to help me. He is a doctor who always has another plan ready if the first will not work.! Not just a great surgeon but a great person who cares.

Excellent surgeon, excellent physician group, excellent support staff. Not just bedside manner (which is excellent), but also clinical quality/outcome (equally excellent). Have already recommended Dr. Cates to a friend who needed a vascular surgery procedure, and will continue to do so whenever the occasion arises.

If you need a Whipple procedure for pancreatic cancer, look no further than Dr. Cates. His technical skill and experience in this extremely difficult surgery is outstanding. He's exactly what you need in a surgeon: confident, determined and experienced. I'm alive today because he removed all the Stage IIIB pancreatic cancer from me and successfully re-plumbed my innards to function. It's a long, slow, grueling recovery but know you're in good hands with Dr. Cates. 10/10 would choose him again!
Dr Cates is an excellent Dr. He is very understanding of your situation and informs you as what is needed to be done in order to correct your issue. I have had WHIPPLE surgery in 2006 and a fistula in 2017. I would reccomend Dr Cates to anyone needing the type of surgeries that he performs.
