Dr. Oates has been my endocrinologist for more than twenty years. In keeping with best practices, she remains up to date with the information about the latest studies, medications, and techniques in her area of concentration. Best of all, Dr. Oates is down to earth, and while a realist, she is not an alarmist. She is both humorous and compassionate. Best of all, she gives you time to talk and she listens!
