June 11, 2014

Appreciate Dr. K and his assisstants.

June 07, 2014

Dr. K has been my primary care provider for a long time. This time we even came to SLC from Mesquite NV just to see him and he was able to take the information and gave information that will help clear up a problem that the Dr.s in St. George or Mesquite had been unable to figure out.

June 06, 2014

When the doctor spoke to me he did not have eye contact, seemed distant and dismissive.

June 02, 2014

Dr Kottarathil is a great doctor. Very friendly with a good sense of humor. I have been seeing him for many years and think he has saved my life.

June 02, 2014

Extremely thorough, excellent listener, true rather than feigned concern. Dr. Kottarathil diagnosed a problem due to his diligence no other health provider had pursued the symptoms.

April 17, 2014

I was very pleased with the time Dr. Kotterathil spent with me. I didn't feel pushed through. He is very thorough, I feel like he was concerned about me.

April 13, 2014

Dr. K not only dealt with my immediate problem, but reminded me of my need to have a mammogram and colonoscopy, and then followed up with a referral abs those departments called me to schedule appointments.

April 08, 2014

fine

March 28, 2014

the doctor was nice but told me nothing I didn't know. finding someone else to treat me. the clinic was dirty.

Caregiver is great and I enjoy coming to see him.

Very good doctor.

January 09, 2014

Dr. K. is a very understanding and patient doctor. I have great faith in him.

December 24, 2013

I gave my confidence in him a "good" b/c I've been to him this one time and we haven't built up that patient/doctor relationship. I'm sure he's good at what he does.

December 23, 2013

I love my provider care.He is such a knowladgeble Dr.

December 13, 2013

the dr needs to speak up n tell how to use medication. felt that dr did not address or hear all my concern n did not hear or not responding to all my medications.

December 09, 2013

Like how he suggests use of non-drugs to resolve issues, where appropriate.

December 08, 2013

I am fortunate to have the health care center nearby

November 15, 2013

Dr. Kotarrathil is extraordinary in his skill, his empathy, and his personability. He deserves special investiture as a member of your clinic.

November 08, 2013

Everyone was just great. They all made us feel right at home, especially the np Elisa Estrada and Nestle. They are always so friendly and caring. They make us feel "special" and seem like old friends. And Dr. Katarathyl is very kind and caring, too. Thanks to all of them.

September 25, 2013

Dr. K. shed a lot of light on my health situation and explained things to the letter. I walked out of the clinic knowing that someone cared about me.

August 31, 2013

Dr. K understood what was going on with my knee and knew what I needed for pain

August 30, 2013

I have recomended Dr. K. to several people over the years.

August 27, 2013

I LOVE my doctor & wouldn't want to see anyone else.

August 22, 2013

i feel that the providers are excellent

August 19, 2013

We waited a long time to see him then he didn't spend a lot of time with me. He said he couldn't see the issue I was having but would provide a brace. When the gal came in to give it to me she commented on my condition that the doctor couldn't see.

August 13, 2013

the only thing i didn't like was that the Dr told me to stop taking ibuprofen, but gave me an Rx for it instead of an alternate

August 06, 2013

Dr Kottarathil has always provided superb care to me. I can tell that he cares very very deeply for his patients.

July 19, 2013

Excellent by far. Dr's Kotarathil expertise and understanding of issues by asking the correcy questions have been a decisive factor in my care.Can't tjank him enough.Great

i truly feel dr.k cares about my well being

July 05, 2013

Dr Katorathill I trust him he is very thorough with my needs and good at what he does

July 05, 2013

I've seen Dr. Murnin for years. i would not want to hurt his feelings; but wouldn't mind at all switching to this doctor. my wife would prefer I do.

June 28, 2013

All good experiences

June 24, 2013

could not print out the paper i needed

June 20, 2013

Dr. K 100% percent satisfied. There was only one problem and that was with the pharmacy. Dr. K wrote me a prescription for my test strips the pharmacy sent me a letter stating that they would no longer be able to send my test strips after the end of the month. they told me they could not fill my prescription and to call Dr. K for a new prescription

June 13, 2013

I'm very happy with Dr. K.

June 09, 2013

Have difference of opinion about pneumonia shot. I maintain I don't need one; Dr. very strongly recommends because I just turned 65. He did not demand I get the shot and wrote "refused" on my chart

June 04, 2013

Dr. Kottarathil has proven to be an exceptionally attentive caregiver and particularly gifted diagnostician. My wife and I repose great confidence in him.

May 28, 2013

I went to several Doctoers before choosing Dr. Kotarrithil. He is the best. I leave feeling as though he cares.

May 21, 2013

Excellent Doctor! Would suggest to friends...He Cares and talks to you about what is going on with your body. Definitely a keeper!

April 23, 2013

I have not had any bad experiences.

April 15, 2013

I believe the doctor did not care in the slightest, he already had a preconceived thoughts

April 09, 2013

Everything went smoothly and I liked the friendlyness of the nurse that helped me recieve my pills.

April 02, 2013

I felt like I was wasting his time and talked down to. I was told over and over to stop doing something that I don't do already until I gave in.

March 27, 2013

always great experience trust MD fully, great MD knowledgeable, and he cares about his pt, never had bad experiences for last 17 years in Redwood clinic.

March 12, 2013

Even the doctor couldn't get me in to see a specialist when needed. 2 weeks seems unreasonably long time especially if a doctor requests it.

March 11, 2013

MD Kotharthil is my MD for at least 10 yrs, great doctor.

March 08, 2013

I have never seen a doctor that I have as much confidence in as this doctor.

February 26, 2013

very good

January 28, 2013

Made me laugh more than once. Good medicine.

January 28, 2013

Although a knowledgable Doctor, he was not personable. I would not go back to him due to feeling like he did not care that I was sick or that I wanted to get better. He gave me my medications and sent me on my way. Like a ticket holder at a football game. He told me what was wrong right away and didn't sugarcoat anything like most other doctors do b/c they don't want to get into trouble telling you what is wrong (fearing that they may be wrong).

January 28, 2013

I really liked him and would tell others ablut him and will have no problems seeing him again.

January 21, 2013

good

January 14, 2013

Doctor did not say what was probably wrong with me, he didn't say anything, just to get some test. He only mentioned what he didn't think it was. Had to ask him about the medicine myself

January 14, 2013

The wait to see him was way too long. The blood pressure cuff was broken. They brought in a mobile unit and had trouble getting it to work.

December 31, 2012

Provider gave the impression that he did not know how to diagnose my problem and it seemed that he normally does not work within the family practice area. There were several times he asked me the same question multiple times. In the end the only diagnosis he had was that it must be the flu or something.

December 31, 2012

He was very nice//percise//exact//sweet and short

December 10, 2012

Dr. Kottarhill was amazing at explaining what he thought is wrong with me.

December 10, 2012

Dr. Kottarathil, and his staff, were, as always, excellent. I would be hard-pressed to see any other doctor, other than for an annual gyn exam.

November 26, 2012

Very courteous, informative, did not talk down to me, and did not look at the computer all the time.

November 22, 2012

I'm very happy with this doctor. I have a comfort level I didn't have with my previous doctor.

November 19, 2012

Very thorough and wonderfull Dr!

November 13, 2012

dr Kottarathil and coleen or connie his medical assatant are excellent with me. I had reecently moved to Mn and when I returned I went right back to Dr Kottarathil and connie. they welcomed me back and i felt so comfortable and happy to be back because of them

November 09, 2012

I originally went in to get a physical done, and it was not completed. They checked me for a different concern I had mentioned to them, but after that the physical was not completed

October 26, 2012

The doctor gave me a warm and professional welcome when he first met me. He was very considerate and went to extra effort to make me feel comfortable and not embarrassed when he needed to examine a private area of my body.

September 19, 2012

I trust Dr. Kottarathil more than the specialists I see. I would rather just see him.

September 17, 2012

Informative, interested & courtious

September 11, 2012

Dr. Kottarathil is amazing -- the best doctor in the place. Connie, his nurse, is equally good. I don't remember the name of the CNA who assisted in checking me in, but she was quite nice, as well.

August 28, 2012

I checked out 4 or 5 other doctors here, before Doctor Kottarathil. He has been very kind and considerate. I like that he is thorough. He saved me a lot of pain and trouble by finding problems before they became very painful and serious. He does not keep looking at his watch, like one of the other doctors did.

August 01, 2012

The provider seemed to be more concerned about my blood pressure (which I feel was not taken accurately) than the issue I was being seen for which was my knee. No explanation was given for my pain, which I am still struggling with. No follow up was indicated to solve the issue.

July 31, 2012

Dr. K is a very professional straight forward doctor when visiting him I always feel he has my best interest in mind.

July 17, 2012

I like Dr. Katorathil and trust him greatly he is a very good doctor and I would and have recommend him to others

July 13, 2012

Dr. K is easy to talk to and listens and understands what I am attempting to explain.

July 11, 2012

I served as a medic in the army and my wife is an MSN nurse educator so the language was below what I'm used to. I understood everything but felt I was being talked down to.

July 09, 2012

very happy with the doctor and the office staff

July 02, 2012

More detail and explanation than I have ever gotten from others. Great job.

June 04, 2012

great

April 28, 2012

Dr. K is very helpful, funny, and kind.

April 11, 2012

DR. is very knowledgeable and explains everything so that we have a good understanding of the problem and possible solutions.

April 10, 2012

I've seen Dr. K a few times and this was an easier experience than previously.

April 10, 2012

Dr. "K" is the BEST!!!!!!!

April 06, 2012

made me feel relaxed, impressed by his knowledge and actually enjoyed the visit.

January 27, 2012

Dr. K has been my doctor for more than a decade. He has managed my health conditions superbly, and I have total confidence in his diagnosing and prescribing. I share my visit results with my daughter who is a physician assistant and she agrees, based on her hospital and clinical experience, that I have a good doctor.

January 19, 2012

Generally all good.

January 18, 2012

No problem with the doctor other than slow arrival time
