This is a very highly skilled cardiologist with good diagnostic skills! She was available at times after hours to review information and had excellent approach to handling cardiac issues that were more challenging to diagnose and treat!

Very special doctor....

Dr. Bates is a very good doctor besides being a very caring person. She takes the time with you and you can also disagree with her if you need to. Some doctors are not like that. She is a very special, gifted, talented physician.

Patient

I was connected with Dr Bates after suffering a stroke and going to St. Joseph's hospital. My primary care did not feel comfortable with the end diagnosis and requested additional testing. Dr. Bates did that testing and found the cause for the stroke. She's very conservative, not quick to rush to surgery. I really appreciate her position.
