Dr. Kath is all around the best! She has a great personality, compassionate bedside manner, and tremendous knowledge of breast reconstruction. Based on comments from the nurses in the hospital who take care of mastectomy patients all the time, I believe her methods are state-of-the-art. In office visits, Dr. Kath is completely attentive to me. I never feel rushed. She explains everything beautifully and in a way my non-technical mind can understand. I can't say enough good things about her

She is absolutely the best! Very caring and knowledgeable in her field. Dr Kath had several options in the correction or solution to my problem. She watched everything very closely and was extremely attentive throughout the whole process. I'm so thankful to her and her team. I would surely recommend her to all looking for a corrective or elective surgery.

Dr Kath is not only the very best surgeon, she’s someone who you could see yourself friends with, outside of the office. She’s down to earth, caring, and just the right person you would want if you had cancer and needed reconstruction like I did. I’m sad she left Grand Rapids-lucky Memphis! I’m so thankful for the months I had her!

Dr. Kath did my bilateral expander surgery after my mastectomy. She did a great job and i had zero complications. I was sad to hear she was moving and wouldn’t be able to do my implant surgery since i have to wait 6 months after radiation. Never felt rushed and she always made sure to answer all my questions.

Dr. Kath is a compassionate and talented physician. She explains the surgery options, recovery process and expected outcomes, listened to my goals and concerns then created a treatment plan that fit me. She made me feel like an important partner in my care from start to finish. I believe Dr. Kath is a true artist. The results she created after my double mastectomy and reconstruction look amazing and have made other physicians involved in my treatment to take a second look as they are so natural.

Dr. Kath is a great plastic surgeon. I had reconstruction surgery after a double mastectomy and am very pleased with her work. If you have concerns about anything that was done she is there to listen and will address them. I was very fortunate to have had her.

I would highly recommend Dr. Kath. Not only does she have a wonderful bedside manner but she is a gifted surgeon. I Just went through reconstructive surgery after having a bilateral mastectomy. Dr. Kath did a great job and I actually look better than before the mastectomy. Thanks Dr. Kath for making me "normal" again.
