Gateway Medical has been my mother’s doctor at Carolina Gardens Assisted Living for a while now. They have the best communication I have ever had with a medical group since my mother has been in the assisted living environment. . . . They all have taken wonderful care of my mother from UTIs to cellulitis. I’m very pleased with their services and lovely care.

All of the Gateway Medical providers who have visited the Residences at Park Place have provided excellent bedside manner and truly care about the wellbeing of our residents. It is so convenient for us and our residents to have the providers do their visits in the resident’s rooms. It makes them feel comfortable and alleviates the stress brought on by visiting a doctor’s office.
