Patient Comments (1)
in Washington, DC |
My experience and treatment on April 4, 2016 as a patient of Dr. Cates has been without a doubt stellar and excellent. I was operated on for a hip replacement and applaud the leadership role of the entire medical team under Dr. Cates direction. As of this writing (June 3, 2016) I continue to improve, no longer am I experiencing pain or discomfort and have completed all of my physical therapy and have returned to work. I have the Kaiser Permanente Health plan so I dealt with the entire staff.
