Dr. Joe A Cates has the following 2 specialties
- Vascular Surgery
Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Dr. Cates listens and explains diagnoses clearly and simply. There was a mix-up at the hospital about a needed test and he cleared it up quickly on the phone. I really appreciated that as we were only in town for a few days and a delay would have caused us great difficulty. Finding qualified and caring medical practitioners is certainly needed today.
I want to say, that I have never felt so welcomed at a doctors office before. From the time I made my appointment, walked through the doors and walked out the doors, to leave. Everyone was so nice. I felt incredibly warm from the atmosphere and the staff. Dr. Cates, himself, was exceptionally caring, understanding and attentive, as well as concerned with my questions. I am so looking forward to working with this team, with upcoming surgery. I have already been sharing with people, about my experience. I will definitely be referring Dr. Cates and I'm now at ease, in regards to my upcoming surgery.
