Dr. Kolaski is always willing to listen to our concerns. This visit, I asked if John could have a different style of AFO's and she took the time to explain why that wasn't the best idea for John right now. She also offered a compromise and explained the benefits of that as well. Thank you very much!!! :-))))
We have been seeing Dr. Kat for almost 3 years and she always keeps us informed and makes us feel included in John's treatment.
Wait was too long this last visit.
She is very thorough and interested in my opinion and the opinion of the physical therapist and occupational therapist (which meant a lot). I really like and appreciate her!!
