very respectful. very explanatory on everything.
Kathy was great, very helpful and informative
She was amazing. Really listened to all of us, gave thorough explanation of issue, gave great helpful hints on relieving pain, recommended other therapies. Just really awesome. We left feeling like we finally got answers.
She was very knowledgeable, kind and understanding. She not only spoke to us, but also spoke to my child and that helped. Good experience overall.
she was excellent with my grandson.
I very much appreciated Ms. Perich's attention to detail and manner with my child. she gave excellent advice and was helpful with our problem. we would definitely choose to see her again if we had to.
She was patient listened to me and my son was pleasant to talk to
she was very helpful, gave us some new steps to try
I had the best experience possibethe dr petish was amazing and wouldnt quit until she found out what was wrong! I would go back to her anytime!
we loved her! she was extremely kind and informative. we wish the office was located closer to home.
provide was very good. we were scheduled to see doctor but he had called out sick that day. we were not informed of this until after we got there that we would be seeing someone else, which was a little annoying, but the provider that stepped in was amazing!
She is very polite and compassionate caregiver. My daughter expressed the same feelings.
this dr explained everything to us and was very knowledgeable
very personable, informative and present
I was not pleased with seeing a CRNP.... when appointments are made, the patient should be notified of the position the medical provider has. I believed we were seeing a DOCTOR... even a PA.... but NO! I felt that our provider didn't adaquately evaluate our situation. It was explained as "something he will grow out of." She seemed unhappy with one of my replies and the visit wasn't great after that point.
the provider was kind and very thorough!
Kathy has always taken great care of my daughter and treated her with respect and maintained her dignity through a challenging issue for a school aged child. We can't say enough good things about Kathy Perich!
The doctor was wonderful and had some very good suggestions to help with our daughter's UTI issues.
When learning my child had to have a surgery, she was very patient, thorough, and kind in explaining everything. She made the uneasy news a little less stressful.
She was very kind and sweet and talked to my child about her problems and encouraged us to call her if there were any problems with the medicine or anything else.
She was great the service was quick
The doctor was wonderful, sympathetic, and very informative. She walked in with a smile. immediately began letting me know what phimosis & that is a common issue. The whole visit was stressfree & actually quite delightful. The doctor handled my child with care, spoke to him the entire time, & though he was uncomfortable he did not throw a fit ( which is a first).
wonderful and included my child in her care
we had a great visit.
waited 3 months for this appointment and did not help at all with his problem. Supposed to be a specialist but didn't give me anymore info then his regular doctor.
wonderful and caring provider. would recommend her to anyone needing a urology consult
