I called Dr Bates' office (CHI Memorial Ooltewah) and was told that he was accepting new patients. I gave my insurance info etc.. I never received a call back so I called his office and asked for an update. His receptionist told me that he declined taking me as a new patient. All I needed was a primary care doctor for physicals and general care. I have to assume he doesn't care for the insurance that I carry, even though I did verify that they do in fact accept my insurance.

Dr. Bates has no right to be working as a family physician. He walked in the room without knowing my name or what I was there for. Instead of answering our questions, he belittled us and made us feel extremely uncomfortable. His "advice" goes against advice and medications that I received after I saw a specialist who actually knows what he's talking about. Needless to say we will being to another doctor as soon as possible. Would not recommend to anyone who actually wants quality medical care
