Dr. Katcher is the most human, most concerned doctor I have dealt with. He is a cardiologist, dealing with one of the most technical parts of the body, the heart. But he is continually using the phrase quality of life. He doesn't prescribe medications with little thought about side-effects. He talks to you as a person, you're not just a number or specimen to him. He listens, and lets the patient's input become a part of the treatment process. He explains what's important, not demands.
