Patient Comments (7)
Morgantown, PA |
The office staff is the rudest I have ever dealt with. When asked when I had my last appt. after putting me on hold for at least five minutes twice. Another lady got on the phone to ask for information all over again she asked for my phone # and hung up on me. She called me back an hour later to tell me they have no record of me as a patient. The next day another lady called me to tell me that my records were ready to be picked up! What?All I asked was “when was my last appt? Incompetent!!

Dr. Katin is an outstanding professional. He knew I was very concerned recently about certain test results and he rushed them and called me late on a Friday night so I didn't need to wait through the weekend. I have the same high regard for his staff. I had a bad experience with an MRI recently and just dropped in on his office. His entire staff sprang into action even though their office hours were ending and did what was necessary to get me care and followups. They care and are awesome people.

At first I trusted him, but three strikes for me, I'm out. He literally argued with me about my experience with my sinuses at a followup. He ignored, dismissed me, my concerns, and did not care about anything other than what he wanted to say. He argued that I never had infection because it was not in his notes. I wanted to and should have walked out on him. But I sat with my jaw on the floor and almost laughed.
Kimberton, PA |
Over the last year, Dr. Katin repaired a hole in my eardrum as well as surgically removed a cancerous Thyroid & Lymph nodes. Coming from a family of doctors, I appreciate someone who intelligently communicates a diagnosis and quickly lays out recovery plan. The skill, concern, and professionalism offered to me by Dr. Katin and his office staff made neck surgery much easier to swallow. I recovered better than expected from both surgeries, largely due to their care. Very grateful...

I was scared to death to have sinus surgery . I put it of twice in 2015. I finally had it done July 2016 and I have to say it was nothing like what I read or was worried about. I think I picked the best surgeon and I was worried because he wasn't a codler. But I would rather have a darn good surgeon than a codler any day ! I had a big surgery and what I experienced most was some dizziness and headaches during recovery , other than that it was a breeze and I am very thankful to Doctor Katin

Dr. Katin is very rude and dismissive. Don't bother asking questions, because he can't be bothered answering. Arrogant is the best word to describe him. I can't be bothered with the likes of him.
Paoli, PA |
Dr. Katin is extremely dismissive. After my son's surgery he did not allow us to ask questions. He literally cut us off when we tried and said, I have to go to do the next case; everything will be on the discharge instructions. It was shocking!
