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 Ruby in OH March 17, 2024 for Christopher Bates, MD, FACP

I first met Dr. Bates when he was caring for my late Mother-in-Law until she passed at age 96. I became his patient when his partner, my physician of 40 years retired. Since I observed the excellent care he provided my Mother-in-Law for many years, I asked to become his patient which was before he joined MDVIP. His attention and care have been exemplary and always made me feel that my health… See more

Dr. Christopher Bates has been my doctor for a short time. My original doctor retired after being my physician for over 35 years. However, I've needed Dr. Bates on a few occasions recently and he was there! He has returned my calls in a very short period of time and was able to prescribe the necessary medication necessary for making what could have been a long symptom very short-lived… See more

Doctor Christopher Bates, always takes his time and really listens to me when ever I have a health issue. He always thoroughly explains the results of my physical to me in a way I can easily understand. He has been my doctor for over 20 years and I highly recommend him to my family and friends!

from Matthew in OH February 11, 2024 for Christopher Bates, MD, FACP

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.
