All I can say is she meets every criteria I expect in A doctor. Not only does she know what's going on but thinks about how to explain it in a way you feel comfortable and safe before you leave. No limits of time or pushing the boundaries of having the appointment shortened due to heavy volumes of patients. Her kindness and her ability to listen and to communicate back was incredible! I could go on and on just from that meeting but I think this has enough.

Dr Gates listens to her patience and makes them feel heard. She has a wonderful bedside manner and makes the patient feel important and not just a cog in a assembly line that needs to be addressed before moving on. She is quite lovely and I felt she truly listened and then diagnosed rather than making up her mind in the first 2 secs.
