I had come in to see convenient care due to swelling in my neck and new growths under my tongue as I did not have an appointment with Dr Bates. She has monitored and treated me for numerous and serious medical problems and when she found out that I was in for these particular reasons she worked me in to her schedule. She made important recommendations that she forwarded to an oral surgeon that I will be seeing next week. She did not have to take this extra step and work me into her busy morning schedule but this is an example of the extraordinary and caring doctor that she is.

Let me start by saying I am usually terrified to go to the doctor's office, to say the least. As soon as I walked in I was greeted with smiling and busy faces. Everyone was working hard yet still attentive. I barely had any wait time before I was called to the back. The nurse was amazing. Very friendly and attentive as well as concerned with my well being. She tried hard to ease my anxieties and fears. Dr. Bates was amazing! I had completely forgotten how great she is. She is very easy to talk to and definitely cares for my well being. She made sure that all my questions and concerns were addressed before she left the room. At one point I had completely forgot I was even at the doctor office. For me that's a big deal because my fear of the doctor is very strong and has been that way since I was a child. Dr. Bates definitely made me extremely comfortable and has started my path in learning to trust In doctors! We all need a "Dr.Bates" in our life's.
