My experiences over the years with Dr Pate have been truly extraordinary. She is tirelessly patient, thoughtful, caring and empathetic. She is always willing to take the extra time necessary to hear and allay your concerns and make sure you’re comfortable with the course of treatment she’s recommending. And on the rare occasion when she doesn’t have the answer at hand, she’s quick to reach out to her extensive network of colleagues and specialists to get their thoughts and ideas. Most recently, she didn’t like how long I would have to wait to see a prominent specialist so she picked up the phone and got me moved up a couple of weeks . She’s the best, and unless she moves to Uzbekistan, she’ll be my GP till I take my long dirt nap.
