This woman doesn't beat around the bush and tells you like it is and I love her for it. I have lost over 40 pounds and I'm still losing. Thanks Dr. Bates for all that you do....
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.
