Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

Best primary care doctor I've had and I'm a 63 year old female! Patient, attentive, cautious, but yet aggressive when necessary. Personable, good bedside manner.

Great Physician!

Dr. Cates is a wonderful doctor. She takes time to talk to each patient and is concerned about their health. She makes sure that all shots and procedures are up-to-date. I have followed here from her various places of employment because it is worth it to find someone that really cares about the patient.
