Dr. Bates is a Northern Colorado native. He grew up on a small farm outside of Longmont, CO. He studied at the University of Colorado for his undergraduate, masters and medical school. He then completed his residency in Family Medicine at the University of California, Davis. He is board certified in Family Medicine and treats patients of all ages. While in residency Dr. Bates started his own highly rated house call base practice in Sacramento, CA, and after moving back home to Colorado he became passionate about bringing this model of care to the community. Dr. Bates became Medical Director of our clinic (then Greeley MedCare) in late 2016, and has since focused on expanding our urgent care and primary care services.
