Patient Comments (3)

I just had my first appointment with Dr. Kates today. I was very pleased with my visit. He was friendly and attentive. He actually took his time, explained everything and listened to my concerns, instead of trying to rush me along. The office staff was very friendly as well. I did have to wait...more
