Seems great but after surgery . doesn't care what the patient is going through and in his words you're lucky you're alive! Do not explain all options to patient just the surgical procedure he performs

My daughter was transferred to 4 different emergency teams in 3 different hospitals within 10 hours. Her situation turned out to be incredibly unique. While every health care professional I met with (numerous doctors, nurses & surgeons) was professional & kind & thorough in explaining procedures & protocols, Dr. Katigbak managed to surpass all others just when things were beginning to get very stressful & potentially dangerous. I finally felt my daughter was safe, and she was. THANK YOU!!
