Dr. Gates was kind, knowledgeable, thorough and listened in a way that was engaging to address concerns. She didn't rush through the appointment. She shared a plan of care and explained next steps and options (with pros, cons and limitations). The office visit was one of the best I had with a doctor in years! I felt respected and heard. Highly recommend her.

I recently had the pleasure of being under the care of Dr. Khalilah Gates and what impressed me the most about Dr. Gates is her exceptional ability to explain complex medical concepts in a simple and understandable manner. She patiently listened to my questions and concerns, and she never rushed through any part of our conversation. Her dedication to ensuring I fully comprehended the diagnosis, treatment options, and reasoning behind her recommendations was truly remarkable. I ended the appointment feeling informed, empowered, and optimistic about my health journey.
