Dr Catinis is an excellent, knowledgeable, caring physician. He took the time to do a thorough exam and ask a lot of questions about my symptoms. He addressed my medical issue and I have felt great ever since. His office even checked back with me a few weeks later.

One of the best medical professionals I’ve encountered in New Orleans. He did a complex surgery on me and it all went well- I’m glad I was in his hands and not with some uninterested doctor, as I’ve been to too many who just don’t seem to care about the patient. I trust Dr. Catinis’s judgement. Besides being excellent at his work, he is empathetic, respectful and overall a nice doctor.

Dr. Catinis diagnosis and treatment ended 4 years of miserable stomach pain. The difference between him and previous doctors was that he listened to me and asked me questions to draw out issues that I did not realize were that uncommon.

Dr. Catinis is an excellent, caring doctor. When I had an urgent problem this year, he fit me into his schedule at his clinic. He took time to explain everything and is very sincere and comforting. I have recomended him to several friends and family who received great care and feel the same about him.

I have been going to Dr. Catinis for a few years now. Dr. Catinis is very genuine & patient person. He takes his time with you, explains everything and does not rush your appointment. Once you are done seeing Dr. Catinis, he takes you to the check-out desk. Staff is very friendly and will give you a copy of your test results, etc. Dr. Catinis' office has a gPortal online system - which is nice because they will message you and you can get your invoices off of that system.

I began seeing Dr Catinis when I was diagnosed with fatty liver disease. On my first visit my liver enzymes were very elevated. He explained that my obesity was the cause and that I needed to lose weight. He sent me to his dietician to start on a 1800 cal diet. At that time, the Ideal Protien diet was offered to me. I decided to go on this diet program. With the assistance of Daina his dietician I lost 70 lbs and corrected my liver enzymes. I am very happy with their healthcare. Thanks!

Dr, Cotinis is an excellent doctor. I had a colonostopy done last year and he had a patient earlier that needed some extra time he came to my bed and explained that he had spend more time and apologized to me. I appreciated that he came to my bedside to explain. I had an appointment with Dr Cotinis on Friday my appointment was for 3:15 and he was in the office at that time and I was out of the office by 3:30. I appreciate his promptness and also his understanding of my time also

I would recommend Dr. Catinis to family and friends. I think he is a total professional, he is kind and understanding and treats me like he has time to listen. His medical assistance has increased my enjoyment of eating, living and enjoyment of life. His medical staff at his office and at his procedure facility are all so polite, considerate, kind and accommodating, as is he. I am so happy I am his patient. I could sing his praises forever, but I am running out of characters.

Never can one prepare for:"You have Cancer!" When Dr C delivered the news to me, I bursted out crying like a child. I will never, ever forget how compassionate he was when that moment felt like a death sentence. He is very knowledgeable and kind, soft spoken; the guy you want to go see when you need a gastrointerologist!! Dominique in the office has been amazing too.Returning phone calls in a timely manner. I will recommend Dr. C to anyone, every time. A Thousand "Thank you's" Dr. Catinis.

Dr. Catinis is the best doctor I have ever seen. He is not only smart but extremely understanding. You won't regret seeing him. He will without a doubt figure out what is going on with you. Before going to Dr. Catinis I had seen multiple other specialist and once again hit a dead end. They couldn't figure out what was going on. However, doctor Catinis figured it all out, and I'm on my to a full recovery.

I met with Dr. Catinis after meeting with many other doctors who blew me off as having "just IBS" or a "nervous stomach". I had been rushed to the ER almost weekly with stomach pains so severe that I could barely breathe, and other doctors treated me as if it was all in my head. Dr. Catinis took time to review all of my tests and ordered more so we could have a full evaluation. He helped me tremendously when we were able to finally find a diagnosis and a treatment that worked amazingly well!

Dr. Catinis is very competent, experienced, caring, and friendly. He takes whatever time with the patient to obtain the patient history and symptoms, prescribe necessary tests and medications and explain in detail to the patient test results, his prognosis, future treatment, and offers to answer fully all questions of his patients.
