DOESN"T TAKE ANTHEM BLUE CROSS

Really couldnt say. Took two weeks for them to even call me back and then even though their website says they take Anthem Blue Cross, they DON'T. Such a waste of time.....and at a time when I am in my absolute worst pain of my life. Thanks for wasting my time.

So the food what really good. I also had my own everything and a staff that was skilled curteous, and helpful.

I as in an older room. Nice, It had french doors in it....I love those. Made it nice for my family and friends to have a place to hang out for awhile.. I was kind of out of it, but gave them a nice memory with each other, My highly skilled nurses were truly outstanding and were very attentive and on top of everything. Easy going and patient. Dr. Tate is of course an incredibly gifted surgeon with an warm , caring, and optimistic personality and great bed side manner.

Recommendation for DR Tate

Greetings: Letter of Reference for Dr. James Tate Neurological SurgeonFor over 3 years I labored with progressive stinging back pain and radiating pain in my legs. As my pain issues accelerated into agonizing night pain and extended mobility problems which prevented me from even walking to my car, I talked to my Doctor in Redding California, Dr. Andrew Solkovits . After a complete examination, Dr. Solkovits diagnosed me with having spinal stenosis. He ordered an X ray and MRI and confirmed my condition. At that point he presented me with a recommendation; it was that the only way to get back to health was for me to consult with a neurological surgeon.Of course I asked Dr. Solkovits, who is the best person to see, should I go to a major medical center? His immediate reply was, Dr. James Tate is the best person who I could find anywhere to do this type of operation. He is in Redding and he is a top Neurological Surgeon who he has recommended many patients to. Let me say that Dr. Solkovits is not just my Doctor, he is also a close friend for over 15 years. Therefore his recommendation is highly taken without question.Dr. Solkovits referred me to Dr. Tate in Redding, I was granted an immediate appointment.Dr. Tate met with me, he reviewed my MRI, confirmed my condition with a full examination and offered to help me. I took his recommendation to operate, immediately scheduled my procedure with great confidence. Let me offer this message to anyone who is in need of spinal neuro surgery in Northern California. I am an operations medical Center consultant with over 25 years of experience. Including 2 years at Mount Sinai a world class medical center in New York, I was involved with over 60 medical centers throughout the USA and Canada. I know what good care is and I know a lot about total patient care.I can state with a full formal endorsement that Dr. Tate and his staff are as fine a medical team as I have seen anywhere. Dr. Tate has created an environment of healing and his health care facility is second to none. I was admitted by a kind and caring health care professional. My operation was totally successful and my time in recovery was as comfortable as could be. The staff took great care of me after the surgery and I walked out of Dr. Tates hospital in 24 hours standing up walking without pain.All cases are different but I would state that your chances of experiencing a successful spinal operation are greatly enhanced if you are fortunate enough to meet Dr. Tate. Experience and wisdom and skill is everything in a spinal operation, Dr. Tates staff especially his anesthesiologist and in my case his assistant Dr. Mu. MD were excellent. Today 20 days past surgery, I am pain free, walking and so grateful to Dr. Solkovits for referring me to Dr. Tate. He gave me my life and mobility back.If you would like an endorsement for Dr. Tate please call me at the number below. Dr. Tate changed my life and I am eternally grateful to Dr. Tate and also Dr. Solkovits for his firm recommendation.
