I saw Dr Bates for a botched foot surgery and he gave me very good direction. Then I had him do the fix on my other foot and he took care of things so totally differently. I can tell things are healing well and faster and will have a good outcome (1 mo later) . Dr Bates has a wonderful grasp of orthopedics and seems to get straight to the heart of problems and how to solve them. I will continue to see him for ortho work.
He very nice but he was wrong with diagnosing me. Lucky he listen and did an extra surgery. I then read it report afterwards that the dx our wrong even after surgery. I sorry but I don't trust him.
