Dr. Tate takes a holistic approach to care, so while you may be at the office for a single health issue, she takes your entire health into consideration when developing your treatment plan. If it’s necessary, she may refer you to a specialist or make recommendations for additional testing.

To help you on your road to wellness, Dr. Tate may also recommend you come back to the office for a follow-up visit so she can see how you’re doing and provide additional treatments if necessary.
