Dr. Catchings is a kind and knowledgeable physician. He is attentive to my needs and explains his decisions and treatment plans in a way that is easy to understand. I first met Dr. Catchings when I was in a cardiac crisis. His calm manner and genuine concern helped me to face what lay ahead with confidence that I was in the very best hands. He continues to deliver the same quality of care each time I visit his office.

Dr Catchings & John Jacobs have both been very informative for me. I appreciate their concern and their being upfront with me about my care and prognosis and seeking further consults as needed and concerned about my opinions of those I have been referred to. We are lucky to have both of them. They are treating me and my husband.
