I would recommend Dr. Bates to anyone. He is always available for an appt., is friendly and takes the time to make sure his patients get the appropriate care each time they come in.
I've been going to Dr. Bates for probably about 15 years, albeit infrequently. Turns out my fiancee and her whole family have been seeing him for years too. We all love the guy, and you can tell he cares very much for your well being. He gets an A+++++++++++
I've been a patient for over 5 years and was all good, probably because I was never sick, but when I recently got bronchitis and was under doctor's care, and even after treatment (cough syrup and steroids) did not get better, he should have brought me in to discuss plan of action after my 3rd visit. I then phoned every few days and spoke with his assistant Ashley and said I had severe congestion in my throat and was almost choking, she told me to gargle and take Flonase. My condition worsened.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bates for over 25 years. I even select my insurance carrier based on the insurance he accepts in his practice. Very easy to talk to and very trustworthy. Spends plenty of time listening and providing answers to your health concerns. Always available if an emergency arises and if he's not in the office, his partner Dr. Moran is available, also an excellent physician. Office and physicians are very respectful of your time and don't over-book

Doctor seemed good but his nurse Ashley would not let me talk to the doctor even though he had asked me to call him. She kept me waiting for 5 days with my sickness
