I have seen Dr, Lates twice now. The first time was an introduction to him the second was more of a follow up. I can only say that I have had a very positive experience with him as well the office staff. Friendly very happy team of people. Since my last visit he and I had a bit of a talk about my health and I left the office with a positive feeling. I cannot wait to see him in July. I came home with a different approach to my health. I am controlling my blood pressure much better my overall feeling is very positive. Just by having a visit with Dr. Lates has changed my outlook on myself. I thank him and his wonderful staff for this. I wish continued success to him as I feel most fortunate to finally have a physician that I truly like.
He has been my PCP for nearly five years. During one period it seemed like there was excessive waiting time, also patients checking in had to stand at the window in the waiting room and communicate with the receptionist. That has changed. Patients now get to sit at a desk in the hallway when checking in and give the receptionist the necessary information w/o everyone in the office being able to hear it. Wait times to see the doctor have improved. I read the comment about the staff taking vitals incorrectly and Dr.Lates not using the stethoscope, I have never found this to be the case. Dr. Lates has a laid back style, coupled with an amicable bearing, but I have trust in his clinical judgement. He doesn't work Fridays so if you need immediate care that day, you're better off going to one of the two extended care clinics, where no appointment is required if your PCP is with BMG. Co-pays much less than at an Urgent Care Center.
dr. lates has always given me direct eye to eye contact and takes time to answer all my question/concerns......he also is great at helping assign the best scripts for me given my medical coverage.......and I think his office is great when I need a immediate visit, they ALWAYS accommodate me. I appreciate that.......and I like that you can do your blood work/draw right there at his office. Dr. Lates is by far the best primary doctor I've ever had.........plus overall great guy
