Physician is in a large hospital complex in Dallas and is well known in the area so I thought I\'d have a long wait. Since the visit is for a second opinion I thought it\'d be fairly superficial, going off what had been provided by another physician. Instead both staff and physician were very through as well as very attentive and the wait time was minimal, maybe 10 minutes to 15 minutes. Physician explained everything and also correctly identified what was wrong as evidenced by a steroid shot that started giving me relief in short order. Other physicians had thought I\'d need major surgery (osteotomy) to correct the problems and had offered no relief of any kind in the mean time. I couldn\'t be more pleased with Dr. Cates and his staff.
