“I saw Dr. Oates for a rotator cuff repair. At our first visit after the MRI results were obtained, he clearly explained my diagnosis, prognosis and what to expect with a surgical repair. Before and after my surgery, he described in more detail what I was to expect with the surgery, and afterwards, he answered all of my questions along with guidance for a smooth recovery. At each appointment Dr Oates took the time to answer my questions and concerns, as well as explaining what to expect in terms of the potential length of time for a recovery. I always felt I was in good hands with Dr. Oates. He was professional as well as caring and interested in my individual situation. I recommend Dr. Oates without reservation.”

“Full right shoulder replacement on 9/26/16; very successful surgery and ensuing 4 months of Physical Therapy played my 1st full round of golf with all clubs last week! No pain,neither immediate nor residual. Great and skinful surgeon; both from myself and the PT’s in La Conner & Tucson. Dr Oates is an excellent communicator both with the patient and his family and his support staff. Leading up to the surgery, I had many choices; glad we choose Dr. Oates!”

“I had made an appointment to see if there was a chance for improvement on my hand. I had tripped and fallen, jamming the fingers of my left hand. My little finger was extremely sore but I could move it and thought it would be okay and didn’t go to a doctor. (I was in California last Febuary when this happened. I’m a snowbird). I couldn’t use my hand for a couple months– I was sure it was just a sprain. I finally decided to check it out and made the appointment with Dr. Oates here. He x-rayed it and I was wrong. It was broken. A couple other fingers kept snapping in and out of place. He gave me a shot to relax it and it finally kept getting better. Now it is still a little weak and the finger a bit crooked but I can live with that – it isn’t that noticeable. I am so happy to have found an orthopedic surgeon here in Anacortes. The whole experience at your clinic was really nice. You should have seen my black eyes — my head took a hit too!!”

“I have seen David Mourning and Robert Billow and Kenneth Oates. I am very satisfied with my care with all my doctors I see there. Dr. Oates replaced my knee and I have had injections in my back twice, a year apart, so I am very happy to be pain free. Would not go anywhere else. Thank you.”
