in Greenville, NC |
Dr. Bates exceeded my expectations in every way. To begin with, he eased my fear of THR surgery. He answered all of my questions and explained everything in detail. I am 2 weeks post surgery and Dr. Bates' skill and expertise has given me a new lease on life. I haven't felt this terrific in 6 years.

Dr. Bates is a very intelligent man and as a doctor he is very knowledgeable and has a great "bedside" manner. I definitely recommend him for any knee problems which is what I have seen him for.
