in Mercer Island, WA |
Dr. Katsman is an exemplary gastroenterologist; not only does he explain your medical condition coherently and thoughtfully, but he also details your possible treatments to ensure you understand and are comfortable with your medication/treatment. In my first appointment with Dr. Katsman, I made more progress than the last 11 months I spent with my previous gastroenterologist, as Dr. Katsman intently listens and works with you, treating your condition as a team.

Very impressed with the entire process, from scheduling, procedure preparation instructions and supplies, check-in and procedure itself. Staff was very friendly. We liked Dr. Katsman's bedside manner, pre-procedure visit was informative and professional. Same for post-procedure.
