Dr. Katopes has been caring for my digestive needs for about 10 years now and I appreciate his kindness in prescribing what I needed for a flare up of diverticulitis. I feel so much better and the confidence I have in the Digestive Health Specialist team is very high. They did not rest until I had the medicine I needed and I appreciated their care so much.

Thank you Dr. Katopes. After forty years of being really sick on my stomach, spells of vomiting for three days and diarrhea. You have diagnosed what was going on and prescribed one tiny pill. WOW, no more sickness. My family is truly grateful to you for your caring ability. I have not had an episode since the day I came to your office. You are not only professional at all times, but handsome and speaks very clear and precisely. Respectfully submitted.

In June 2019, I had unspecified nausea and vomiting. This practice worked diligently to relieve symptoms while trying to find the cause. Following my kidney cancer removal, they also worked in conjunction with my urology doctors to assist on ongoing symptoms. Dr. Katopes was my follow up Dr. Taking the time to answer all my health concerns. I really appreciate his kindness and professionalism

Dr. Katopes was right on point with his diagnosis. I had seen several other physicians and didn’t get real relief until I saw him. Totally recommend him for your digestive problems.

Dr. Katopes is the best. When I first met him in the office he had already looked at my past lab work. He came in the room knowing I had a problem that my other doctors made excuses for. We discussed a plan of care. I am very happy and well now.

I have had GI issues for a little over 7 years now, that caused me abdominal pain daily. I needed a colonoscopy, and Dr. Katopes was the doctor to perform that procedure. He was kind and compassionate and answered my questions. I have seen him a couple of times since, and with his help I can say that I am finally pain free (YAY!). We are still trying some treatment options, but I highly recommend Dr. Katopes. I'm very glad I found him!

The recommended course to follow on my first visit brought the desired results by the time of my second visit; i.e. within 6 weeks. My issue, (chronic constipation) has been a long term one (30 years) so I am totally pleased that a resolution has been found. I am ecstatic with the overall good feeling I am now experiencing because my condition has noticeably improved with the first tried option. Dr. Katopes has an excellent bedside manor and I recommend him to anyone needing his expertise.

I have been going to Dr Katopes for about the last 5 years and I would not see anyone else. He is caring, compassionate, really listens and allows me to be a real partner in my treatment. When I say I would trust him with my life, I truly mean it. I would definitely recommend him for all your digestive issues. I don't feel that the Kernersville office is quite as efficient as the Winston Salem office, and there is almost always a wait, but Dr. Katopes is well worth it.
