This was the first time we saw Dr. Tate. He was very knowledgeable and caring about our need for the visit.

We love Dr Tate. Always takes extra time to talk even if it's not about what we are being seen For.
after dr diamond left I was concerned we wouldn't find a dr who cared as much for his patients as dr diamond did but dr Tate is wonderful. I feel as though he really gets to know each individual child and remembers specifics about them. he doesn't treat them like just another patient but takes time to care for them and know them to make them comfortable and provide the best care.
First visit with Dr. Tate. Very pleased. will request him next visit
we really like dr Tate. overall no complaints about the visit!
this was my 1st experience with Dr. Tate and he was absolutely amazing!! he did a great job tending to my daughter.
Dr. Tate is the best and I wouldn't recommend anyone else!!!
Our appointment was actually scheduled with a different pediatrician who we were informed was running a bit behind when we were taking back to the room. The nurse or MA had stated that he would be with us as soon as possible. Within about 5-10, Dr. Tate had come in the room and explained that the other pediatrician was running a bit behind and he was finished for the day and if we didn't mind, he'd be happy to take a look at our baby girl and get us out sooner. I honestly have never had this happen before and was very appreciative that he would do this. Especially since it's a bit hard to keep a 1 year old occupied that long back in those rooms...it's hard to keep my 4 year old occupied in those rooms... We have had the pleasure of having Dr. Tate on other appointments as well and he is always very friendly and accommodating to ours and our children's needs. He's definitely a great asset to the CCP-South practice! Thank you Dr. Tate for caring and being so great with our children!
I couldn't ask for a better experience than I had with this Dr office.
This was the first time meeting Dr. Tate. He was very friendly & knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend him & will go back to see him again.
Dr. Tate is great! When he sees an issue of concern he recommends testing, blood work, etc. immediately to get further information and alleviate any additional concerns. He asks questions and provides guidance on milestones as we are first time parents. I like that he also has small children and can often relate to our experiences first hand. We would like our daughter to remain a patient of Dr. Tate on a future basis.
My son was born over a week now and when we go to his appointments, he is taken care of properly
Dr. Tate, the receptionist and nurse assistant are always professional, courteous and accommodating.
We always receive outstanding care from the moment you walk through the door.

Dr. Tate is the best, we love having him as our sons pediatrician and really trust him.
We usually see Dr LaBarbara but decided to see Dr Tate this time since the office is much closer and I want my son to be familiar with more than one doctor at this office.

He treats you with respect, takes his time with you, and gives information you can trust. We are so thankful to have found a pediatrician to work in collaboration with over our son's health and wellness.
Dr. Tate is knowledgable, caring, cautious and thorough. After seeing most of the doctors I. the practice it is without doubt he is the doctor I absolutely trust regarding my child's medical and developmental needs. From the first visit we met with him, we have never scheduled with another doctor after. He is excellent.
Dr. Tate is always friendly and patient with my little girl and me, as a new mom. I always feel like we are having a discussion about my baby's health, and not a high-level lecture. He is very attentive to my concerns and very good handling her.
dr.tate is good at what he does
I do not request any particular Doctor during visits because I have never had an issue with any of them. They are all outstanding!!
Saw Dr Tate for a rash and loved him so we chose to see him for our well visit. He is attentive, listens, has good ideas and went out of his way to refer us to appropriate specialists and care coordination to help us schedule appointments. Have bot always felt like the more seasoned physicians listened to our needs, Dr Tate however was great and we are happy he is available to us!
This is the first time one of my children has seen Dr. Tate. I was extreamly pleased at how he took care of him. He even showed me what he was seeing in reguards to my childs problem. I hope he will be my children's regular doctor. We will miss Dr. Rippepi, but he does well filling her shoes in my opinion. I rate him with 5 stars.
I'm very happy with Dr Tate. He is by far the best Dr. my daughter has seen at this office. He has a pleasant attitude and is very professional. I have seen other Drs. at this office and I didn't really care for them. It is a relief to finally have a Dr. we like.
