The lobby/check in area was not busy but the nurses looked like they were crazied with busy work. Reception nurses weren't the nicest, go 30 mins before your appointment because you have a lot of check in details to provide. I saw an intern for a majority of my appointment, she was nice and thorough. Doctor was amazing but the wait was too long, it took me 1 hour to finally see the actual doctor and she came in at the end. The lab needs to be cleaned and more professional.

First visit to a PCP in a number of years for an annual checkup. Registration at Dr. Pate's office was quick and easy and very convenient because of a new device based registration. When I was finally in the exam room Dr. Pate was very friendly and easy to chat with with. After an EKG which revealed and out of the ordinary result she immediately requested an ultrasound just to confirm any suspicions. Overall a great experience for a first timer and I would definitely recommend her to other patients.

I really liked Dr. Pate. She was friendly, easy to talk to and reasonable. She spent a good amount of time with me and worked through all my issues. She ordered an ultrasound that I had at the time of the visit and I even got my labs done before I left. Overall I felt really confident in her care.

Dr. Pate was absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about her. And the rest of the staff were fantastic as well. While they were fast and responsive, I didn't feel rushed. They explained everything along the way and were just lovely. If you are considering seeing Dr. Pate, don't hesitate. I was referred to her by a colleague whom also spoke highly of her. I feel as though I am in great hands!

I really enjoyed how thorough the nurse practitioner was in taking all of my family history and concerns which allowed for a prompt visit with Dr. Pate. The NP was great and instantly made me feel comfortable and taken care of. Dr. Pate was also caring and helpful in referring me for the followup appointments I needed.

I had an excellent appointment with Dr. Pate. She was extremely thorough and took the time to listen to every single issue I was having. She ordered only the necessary tests and did not push medicine because I was unsure. She provided me the information I needed to do my own research. I am looking forward to my next visit in a month!

Dr. Pate and her staff were great! This was my first visit as a new patient and she addressed all my concerns and considering that I am a bit of a hypochondriac, she was patient. Her beside manner was very warm, confident, and efficient. I'll definitely be returning. She was friendly, approachable, and I am definitely satisfied with my visit! On a plus I was called right away by the nurse after I arrived.

Dr. Pate was amazing! It was my first time seeing her and she not only took the time to really listen to my concerns, she asked me a ton of questions and made me feel so comfortable. She even found and was able to run tests for an issue that was completely different than the one I'd come in for - something my former primary care physician (who I'd seen in July and had been a patient with for 10 yrs) never once mentioned to me. I'm so happy to have found Dr. Pate and will continue seeing her.

Dr. Pate (pronounced pay-t not pah teh) is great, knowledgeable and incredibly empathetic. I went in for an annual physical and she took great care of me. The nurse that took my vitals, blood, and EKG was also great. I trusted them enough to share my troubled psychological past. The only complaint I have against the clinic comes from the way they handled my sign in. This was my first time with Dr. Pate so I made sure to arrive on time. The receptionist had me sign my name and time of arrival on a list. I asked her if there was anything else that I needed to do and she said no. 10 Minutes later she tells me that the forms I had filled out online through Zocdoc were irretrievable and that I needed to fill them out again on a pad. This took me 30 mins. I called Zocdoc and they told me that my forms had been printed earlier; Dr. Pate also had the forms I filled out online. This receptionist was very rude and she lied to me--I wasted 40 mins! She is one of the Asian-American looking ones. Beware that on your first appointment they will waste your time/arrive 30 mins earlier.

Dr. Pate was friendly, thoughtful, and earnest. She clearly cared about making sure we covered all of my concerns, those I knew about and those I didn't, and ensured I left with everything I needed to feel comfortable about my visit. The staff at her office were equally skilled and friendly. Pretty sure I found my new PCP.

I really liked Dr. Pate. She was very helpful and understanding, and listened to all my concerns. Her nurse practitioner Sue Zhu was great too. I will definitely be back! My only constructive feedback - after filling out the zocdoc medical history in detail, it wasn't used by the doctor's office and I was asked to provide it all over again when I arrived for my appointment. A big of an inconvenience but not a deal breaker.
