I went to Dr Cates one time and thought he was a caring doctor. He made some changes in his practice affiliation which I waited around for him to complete only to find out he would no longer be my doctor because I take medication on a regular basis. Blood thinners of all things. So I have to scramble to find a doctor before my prescription runs out. What a horrible way to treat PEOPLE. Guess you can’t trust your instincts when it comes to choosing a doctor.

I went in to see Dr Cates and things went well UNTIL I needed referrals to see three specialists. Melissa (receptionist) told me that they would have my referral in 10 days but if I don't hear back from the Specialist, to call Dr Cates office. I waited 10 days and called the Dr, I was told that they were busy and it would take another 5 days. So, I found three specialist myself. I called Dr. Cates office and gave them the info but Dr Max Cates didn't write the referrals, they said 5 more days.
