For those of us who've worked with him there is few to match him; he's been a successful surgeon for many years with minimal litigation. His partners who left? Fact is their capabilities were in their own minds, and weren't tuned to endovascular surgery. He's the kind of surgeon whom the surgeon goes to, that be a fact.

Dr. Bates performed a right carotid endarterectomy on my over a year ago and I've complained consistently about a painful choking I get in the right side of my neck and sometimes prevents me from breathing. He has laughed this off as "nothing" and "it happens to him all the time." Now, when I have complained about this treatment after a 2 hour plus wait in his office (happens all the time) he had his nurse call me and tell me not to come back to see him anymore. He has refused me further treatment and has refused to even look at the injury he caused me. His two partners recently left the firm and moved elsewhere. I don't know why but I can make some assumptions based on the reports I've received about him from other patients and even one other doctor. I don't recommend Dr. Jim D. Bates of Bullhead City and Kingman, AZ, for any of the type of surgery he practices (thoracic, cardiovascular and endovascular.)

This guy operated on my mother, and she died as a result of the surgery. Was never available post opererative, had to be called to ask what to do by nurses.
