I have been a patient of Dr. Cate for two years plus. May sound strange but I think he's the first real doctor I have had in 68 years. You can count on him to be thorough and considerate.

The support staff are very friendly, professional, and have gone above and beyond to help me every time I've visited. Dr. Cate listens and answers my questions.

Dealing with Dr. Cate's office is a joke. The woman is easily offended when you are angry that she has no idea what she is doing. Hard to receive call backs or real answers. I've never had the opportunity to meet Dr. Cate himself, my grandmother has seen him for years. Other family members that have been to the visits say he doesn't check anything. My grandmother had skin breakdown, he never knew. Because of how difficult his staff has been, we are now having her see a Geriatric Specialist.

Dose not care about his patients. Out of nowhere droped me after many years going to him, leaving me without a doctor and without my medications I need every month. I would not recommend him to anyone. You may just find yourself out in the cold struggling to find a doctor to carry care of you. And you get the medications you need. Thanks for not caring......

Dr Cate randomly decided to stop seeing me and wouldn't even tell me the reason. I called his assistant to get a refill and she said they will no longer be seeing me. I was so confused. I have been without my medicine for a week now and they just barely decided to let me know that after I called and called to get my prescription filled. He's the first doctor to abandon me that's for sure. He needs to retire. He's getting to that age.

As a new patient of Dr. Cate's I told him of my diagnoses of Severe Peripheral Neuropathy, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, GAD, PTSD and Panic Disorder. I had some issues with cancelling appts with the Granger Medical Clinic, but all but a few were before the 24hr deadline. My previous physician was very understanding of this. Dr. Cate stated that missing appts with him was intolerable. I could’ve accepted that, but he added, “That would make me angry…you don’t want to make me angry.” Horrible!
