Dr. Bates has joined our staff two days a week to provide psychiatry services to children and adolescents. He trained to become a physician at University of New England in Biddeford, Maine and did his psychiatry residency at Maine Medical Center in Portland. Before medical school, he worked as a lobsterman, carpenter and woodcutter, and then trained to be a paramedic and nurse. When he is not with patients, Dr. Bates enjoys raising animals of all sorts, playing music with his friends and working on his house and barn with his wife and children.
In order to see Dr. Bates, you need to be receiving primary care at SVHC.
