I LOVE Dr. Gates! He is a wonderful man who not only treats my special needs son with respect but VALUES my opinion as the mom and primary care giver! He makes parents part of the treatment team by validating any concern, explaining any question and most importantly treats your child as if he/she were his own! He has preformed surgery twice on my son,both times in emergent situations under extreme medical circumstances. I knew my son was in the upper most capable of hands!
