I wouldn’t have any other doctor than Dr. Gates. Always look forward to my annual physical to catch up with him. He treats the whole person, actually really cares and takes time to get to know you. Has a sense of humor too. Technically his doctor skills are top notch too, explains everything in detail so I fully understand. His office staff is as good as it gets too.
