Dr Gates was very attentive to this patient's description of the issues, patient in explaining/discussing details while communicating, subliminally, expert knowledge. Along with Barry Levine, who unfortunately decided to retire, Dr. Gates is the best experience I've had with any doctor I visited with at NM in the last forty plus years.
