"I am always pleased with the care I receive at the Dent. Everything is always organized and my testing and appointments run smoothly. Dr. Bates is very thorough and answers all my questions and concerns. He is always quick to suggest any testing that I may need due to my current issues. I feel very confident being in his care. He also has a friendly and warm personality which in my opinion is a plus to have in a Doctor. I also am pleased with his assistant who is also thorough and caring with my medical concerns and issues"
