Bates is board certified in clinical pathology and blood banking/transfusion medicine. She comes to OU Physicians from Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center, Houston, where she was associate medical director of the Transfusion and Apheresis Service and Chemistry, Hematology and STAT laboratories for Gulf Coast Pathology Associates. 

Bates completed a clinical fellowship in blood bank transfusion medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, and a clinical pathology residency at The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. She earned her medical degree from The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. 

She is a member of the Society for the Advancement of Blood Management, South Central Association of Blood Banks, American Association of Blood Banks and College of American Pathologists.

With more than 660 doctors, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts. 

OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
