Dr. Oates joined Hales Pediatrics in 2000, after graduating from Stanford University School of Medicine and completing her Residency in Pediatrics at Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital, Stanford University. Prior to joining Hales Pediatrics Dr. Oates was a staff physician in the emergency room at Children's Hospital. Dr. Oates cares for both well and sick children in the office and helps with hospital rounds and after-hours call.

The pediatricians at Hales Pediatrics--Dr. Hales, Dr. Oates, Dr. Milvid, Dr. Gorman, Dr. Haydel, and Dr. Thomas provide medical care for infants, children, and adolescents from birth through the college years. Our practice strives to provide the highest quality care and to do so in an environment that encourages children to feel happy and safe as they come to our office. We value our families' time and work very hard to assure that we see our patients with minimal delays.we also understand our families' need to have access to our doctors by telephone. While the office staff will help with questions about scheduling appointments, insurance and other non-medical matters, all questions about our patients will be discussed with our pediatricians.
