Kathryn was thorough with her explanation of the procedure over the phone before the appointment, as well as at the appointment before it took place. I was happy to know that she could answer all of my questions, and she seemed pleased to do so. During the procedure, she had great bedside manner, remained professional and seemed very competent. After the procedure, I had a vagal response, but she stayed with me and helped me until I felt well enough to leave. She got me fluids, fanned me and distracted me with conversations. After we conquered that, she talked me through the aftercare, and made sure I was fit to leave. Her genuine care with the initial phonemail as well as throughout the appointment/procedure was superb, despite the fact that the medical procedure was not pleasant.

Hands down, best care provider I've had at Baylor. Kathryn Ives always takes the time to listen, she makes me feel like I'm the only patient she has that day, and is very knowledgeable in all aspects. Not to mention, she's so pretty! Everyone I interacted with was helpful and kind. I really appreciate all of you!

Katherine was awesome! She's very caring and knowledgeable and thorough. I love that she did a follow up call to ensure that i was doing well and provided detailed information on my next steps. Overall the practice is great and I don't trust anyone else with my health. Thank you for getting me in so quickly and helping me get immediate answers that i needed for my health. Also, even before the pandemic i felt the facility and lovely people who work there are awesome with what they do and it always feels and looks super clean.

I told Katheryn that I strongly prefer her to the previous PA. I just feel a stronger connection. It's like we operate more on the same wavelength. I can't really put a finger on why.

Dr. Velin was very professional. She very thoroughly examined the area that I was there to see someone for. She gave me her undivided attention, and gave me a referral to an ophthalmologist to get a better evaluation of the condition.
