I have had 3 procedures and my wife has had 1. All were done by Dr. Katopes and we could not have been more pleased with his professionalism and sincerity. I highly recommend him.

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.
