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!
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.
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.

He treated our daughter as if she was his only patient and I left completely confident in choosing this practice for our children.
the experience was very good. I work as an RN so communication was definitely not a problem and everyone was very professional. I had some questions relating to my newborn and every answer was above satisfactory. dr Tate is a very good pediatrician and I will continue my child's care with him.

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.
Dr. Tate is amazing. He is great with my kids and they love him. He takes his time going over any questions you may have. He makes your kids feel very important!! We highly recommend Dr. Tate!!!

We had a very good experience with Doctor Tate and it was our first visit with him. Couldn't have asked for a better doctor.
We thought Dr. Tate was wonderful!
This was our first experience with Dr. Tate. He was very thorough and showed compassion. I was also very happy that he called me later in the day to check on my daughter's health. You don't get that type of response very often. Thank you, Dr. Tate!
This was our first visit with Dr Tate. We normally see Dr Hart but his schedule was full for a good while. Dr Tate was very good with the kids and I will highly recommend him as a provider
Always a good experience with the doctors at CCP.
We were incredibly impressed with Dr Tate and plan to make all future visits with him going forward. We have also already recommended him to two other sets of parents- one set who are already patients at CCP south and one who isn't. Dr Tate was very patient and really listened to our questions and answered them.
very good experience as this is my child first visit with this provider.thanks for the friendly behavior .
This was our first experience with this provider as we had just switched our pediatrician due to her hours being cut at her practice. Both of our children were seen at the same time and the doctor took their time to understand their health histories, surgeries etc. We were very pleased with the personal approach Dr. Tate took with the kids and with us and how he listened to what we said.
Very pleasant experience.
Very good experience with this office
Dr Tate is fantastic and really takes time with you and shows genuine concern. A+
Dr. Tate was AMAZING!!!! He used humor to help my daughter be more comfortable with this visit. He was kind and asked many important questions. I can not be any more pleased with him. What a great addition to the practice!
Very happy with this dr. He is New to the group and I am very happy with the care, concern and level of knowledge he provided.
It was extremely convenient that we were seen so quickly. Dr. Tate was able to look at my child and make a diagnosis based off of what he saw within a timely manner. He reiterated multiple times to come back within a week to check the status of my child's bumps and infection. We are very pleased.
Dr was at my children's level and I appreciated the way he spoke to them in ways that they understood what was going on :)
Dr Tate was very nice, professional and had a great bedside manner with my son.
Did not care for Dr. Tate. He didnt have good bedside manner. I would not want my kids to see him again.
This was our first visit with Dr Tate as we changed providers. I was very impressed with the concern and quick response to abnormal blood work. He called both my husband and me. When I spoke with him he alleviated anxiety made the endocrine referral for us and made arrangements to pick up a lab script at an office closest to my home. In addition the endocrinologist office contacted my husband to make the referral. A great experience so far not knowing yet what the diagnosis will be the coordination of appointment for specialists and care eases my mind as we approach the unknown.
This was the first time we had seen Dr. Tate. He was friendly, professional, and clear with the explanation of the illness and course of treatment. We were very happy with the visit.
Dr. Tate is a new doctor for us since we moved back to the area. We love our last pediatrician so he had big shoes to fill. He has far exceeded our hopes. He is kind, has a great sense of humor and makes you feel like you are the most important thing when he is with you. Great Job!
This was my first visit with Dr Tate. He was very kind and patient, listened and took the time to explain what he thought was going on and his treatment plan. I would definately see him again and refer him to friends
Dr. Tate was awesome! This was the first time we saw him and we will be sure to schedule routine check-ups with him in the future. He took his time and thoughtfully responded to any and all of our concerns.
We met Dr. Tate for the first time during our visit at CCP, Brentwood office, on 10/12/2015. We are very satisfied with his care. He seems to be a great addition to this medical practice. We felt extremely comfortable with him; he really looks and acts interested and caring toward the patient and parent.
Dr Hart is typically the dr that we use for our children. Dr. Tate was excellent and I wouldnt mind using him again if dr Hart is unavailable.
We are new to this doctor's office and this was the best experiences I have ever had at a well visit and I have 4 children! The staff was kind, attentive and fast. The doctor took his time and really showed genuine concern for what my son is going through health wise. I will for sure recommend this office to others. Thanks for a great visit!
I thought the doctor was wonderful. This was the first time we saw him and I loved the way he spoke to my son.
First time seeing Dr Tate. Very pleased with him. Would definitely recommend him.
really liked doctor Tate....so did my son.
I am very pleased that I chose to switch providers from Kids Plus to this provider. I felt that this provider listened to me and did not treat me as a parent who should not be concerned.
When I arrived at the office, I was told the appointment was made at a different location. The front desk staff worked quickly (and kindly!) so that not only my daughter, but my son who also had an appointment at the same time, could be seen without rescheduling. Front desk staff was EXCELLENT!
