Robert Gatewood, Jr., M.D.


Why did you decide to go into medicine?

As the oldest of 13 children, I learned at a very early age the importance of taking care of others

Favorite book or movie:

"To Kill a Mockingbird" and "The Godfather"

To me, treating people well means:

Making each patient as happy and as healthy as possible
