My child was seen right away and given the proper medication for him to get better.
Dr Cass is absolutely wonderful with all three of my children (ages 4, 2.5, 10 months). She is patient and talks to them instead of just about them. She answers all questions thoroughly and calms any worries. We love her!
Dr. Cass is an incredible physician! After Dr. Glick's retirement, I was concerned that I would not find another provider who was as caring an knowledgeable. Dr. Cass has truly stepped into her role at GIL and filled Dr. Glick's shoes. My daughter loves her (an accomplishment for her to like anyone at 13 years old), and Dr. Cass does great job of explaining things to her in a way she can understand, and in a way that makes her feel heard. She is patient, funny, and laid-back, which only makes seeing her that much more comfortable for my daughter. Highly recommend Dr. Cass to everyone (and I have recommended her to MANY people I know).
Dr. Katie Cass is an excellent physician. My children trust her and like her. She is very in tune with me as a parent and I can always get a hold of her if needed.
Dr. Cass sees both my children since birth and she is an excellent pediatrician. She is thorough, skilled and kind. I would recommend her to anyone!
everyone was helpful, friendly, timely.
In the past, my son has seen doctors that did not have the compassion or knowledge that was needed to understand my child. Dr. Cass delivers the most effective care that he needs and deserves. She reviews your child medical records before entering the room and enters with a smile which helps your child receive the best care possible. Thank you, Dr. Cass.

I absolutely love and trust Dr. Cass. She is a wonderful listener, cares about my child's entire well being (physical and emotional and even social), asks questions of her and of me.

Doctor seemed genuinely concerned with child's well being which I appreciated.
Dr. Cass has a wonderful bedside manner - great with parents and kids
My daughter seems very comfortable and happy with Dr. Cass. It is hard to get used to them being older so you aren't in most of the appointments, but as a mom I very much trust that Dr. Cass would contact me if she had any concerns. Also, I asked Dr. Cass to call me prior to the appointment, because I feel as though my daughter might be under reporting for certain things, and she did, which was awesome!
Katie is always very friendly and has a good connection with my daughter. I trust her and know we're in good hands when we go for doctor visits.
Dr. Cass is always so professional And friendly. She remembers details about my child and I'm glad she apart of my care team.

all have been positive
Dr Cass has been a fantastic addition to GIL. She is familiar with my children's medical care even though she isn't the primary pediatrician. She is extremely professional and knowlegdeable.
She was very thorough and quick.
dr was running at least 30 minutes late, frustrating when your child isn't known for being patient
doctor was great!!! I will certainly be back to see her again.
Dr. Cass is wonderful always puts me at ease when it comes to concerns about my child especially being a first time mom.
I am a bit upset that we had our child there not even 3 weeks prior and was told it was just "viral and he had to wait it out" "give him Tylenol and run a humidifier". We did all that was suggested and my son ended up with pneumonia and an ear infection. He had "clear fluid" in his ear the first time we took him which wax yes I can see but clear fluid indicates to me that is on the way to being an ear infection. I should not have had to ride anything out to have my son end up with pneumonia. This is a dangerous sickness and lots of people die each year from this. While I was told lots of kids this year have it for some reason like it was no big deal, I feel it may be because medications aren't being given to children when they actually need it and being told they need to ride it out. I am a first time mother and have never in my life had pneumonia and when I am told you are familiar with it, that's fine and all but I am not other than hearing how many people die per year of this.
Dr. Cass is wonderful and I'm thankful to have such a great Dr in charge of my children.
Dr. Cass and the nurse were sensitive, patient and caring with my son and his apprehensions about being examined and receiving routine vaccinations.
she is a wonderful doctor
Dr. Cass could not have been nicer or more helpful. She is very nice and easy to talk to. She made my daughter feel very comfortable. She answered all of my questions and made sure that I understood all the information regarding the prescriptions she was ordering. I could not be happier with the care she provided.
Dr. Cass is fabulous! She is warm and attentive and very sweet with my three year old. We love coming to visit her!
I absolutely loved everyone at this office. We had the worst day ever to be a new patient in the office - it was a flu shot day. It took a while to get in the door but they were ready to take us back as soon as I got to the front desk. Everyone was so apologetic for the craziness. I felt very taken care of and look forward to returning on a day when it isn't so crazy. I also wanted to comment how everyone knew the families and called people by name from the waiting room without looking at information (staff, nurses) upon their arrival even before signing in. I got a family-friendly atmosphere and I hope we are continually satisfied with our experiences here.
Dr. Cass is awesome!
Dr. Cass is so kind and helpful and amazing!!! we love her!! She's the best! Thank you!
Dr. Cass is an Excellent doctor. She listens very carefully to me and my children regarding their health.
Dr Cass is so wonderful with my children, she is really caring, a good listener, and I really respect her opinion.
Dr. Cass is wonderful she is always so great with my baby and keeps him calm and is always so patient with me and all my questions
My only complaint about this provider has to do with the waiting room. I wish there was a separate area for sick kids and there could be more books/toys in the waiting area. Otherwise, I ABSOLUTELY loved Dr. Cass!!! She spent a ton of time with me and my kids! This meant a lot to me since she is a new provider for us and she really seemed interested in getting to know the kids! Very knowledgeable, kind, caring and helpful!
exceptional care by all
My daughters are very comfortable with Dr. Cass, and everyone else who provides care at GIL. I love their sensitivity and genuine concern for my daughters' health and well-being.
Always good. We love Dr. Cass!
