My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As an internal medicine physician, I have a strong interest in medical science and the way it pertains to the patient as a person. This philosophy encompasses a sincere concern for each patient with a focus on dignity and compassion. My affiliation with MDVIP provides me the opportunity to spend more time and work closely with patients to promote and cultivate good health while effectively dealing with problems should they arise. This new endeavor transcends traditional medical care and allows me to be an instrument for the good health each person desires.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Bates

from Robert in OH March 11, 2020 for Christopher Bates, MD, FACP

No, I don't mean Dr. House. My personal physician, Dr. Christopher Bates, made a House call and spent over 1/2 hour talking to me and listening to me and finally suggesting that I go on hospice care at home. When I told him I was going to tell others about his making a house call, he said, with caracteristic humility, Pleas no. I don't want anyone to get a bad reputation.

from Ray February 26, 2020 for Christopher Bates, MD, FACP

Dr. Christopher Bates was my doctor for 5 years before he joined MDVIP. I am in MDVIP because of, and for continued access to, Dr. Bates. He has always been highly responsive, excellent professionally, caring personally, generous with his time, and just a great guy. If he retires, I will re-assess my need for, and usefulness of, MDVIP.
