Dr Bates is awesome! He seemed very sincere in making sure I was comfortable and explained my diagnosis very thoroughly! He is very intelligent and I have seen all orthopedics in MHC, highly recommend he is the best.

Highly Recommended!

Dr. Bates is an awesome doctor! I've had my knee operated on 5 times by Dr. Bates over the years. Everything from Arthroscopic to Total Knee Replacements. He has an excellent bedside-manner and he actually listens to what you have to say. He doesn't seem to mind answering any questions I may have for him, unlike most doctors. He is very straight forward and doesn't "beat around the bush". He has a great personality and will actually laugh and carry-on with patients, which is very helpful in lightening the mood, whatever the case. He also has an excellent and courteous staff. I would recommend his services to anyone!
