"When I first saw Dr. Catinis in late 2020, he took extra time with me to discuss gastro-related issues and ways to motivate myself to do what I needed to do. He was very matter of fact and sensible in his advice - he told me I already knew what to do, and to use our conversation as a motivator. I did. The changes I've made have greatly improved my gastro issues. Dr. Catinis cares about the whole patient, not just the problem you've presented him with."

"Having been a patient of Dr. Catinis for many years, I can vouch he is a well respected doctor as well as a super nice guy! He doesn't just hand you a Rx. He talks with you, not at you. He reviews your previous history and suggests a test or treatment. If you have questions, he explains. He will then have staff set the schedule with you. (PS. "Bella Reid" is not me.

"I met Dr. Catinis as a referral when I was in EJGH several years ago. He is thorough in finding a diagnosis, but he does not order an abundance of testing. He discusses his reasoning and diagnosis with you, deciding on which tests to order with your input. Since meeting Dr. Catinis I have stayed with this clinic for all gastrointestinal issues. Their facilities are top notch and the personnel are knowledgeable and kind."

"Let me begin by letting you know that Dr. Catinis treated my father who suffered for years with stomach problems . It wasn’t until he started seeing Dr. Catinis, that for the first time he experience relief from the issues he had suffered almost his entire adult life. Myself on the other hand never had digestive issues. It was years later after my father passed away that I began to have stomach problems and I sought out to find the doctor who had treated him. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to have a doctor sit and listen, be interested and take time to understand why I was seeking medical attention for my problem. Dr. Catinis wants to find the cause of a problem, not just treat symptoms. I have true respect for his professionalism. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a Gastroenterologist."

"Dr. Catinis has been one of the best doctors I have ever had. I went into my first appointment with a ton of nerves due to my symptoms and my family history. He immediately put me at ease with treatment options and good explanations. When I was on the table for my endoscopy, Dr. Catinis saw that I was nervous. He very eloquently stated "It's okay to be nervous. I do these all the time, and yet when I'm on the other side, I get nervous, too." The entire Metro GI system is a well-oiled machine. Appointments and procedures go smoothly and efficiently. All of the staff is kind and knowledgable. Dr. Catinis cares about you as a patient and a person and always remembers some little tidbit that you told him in a previous visit. He wants to see you get better and cares that his treatment is giving you higher quality of life. I would 100% recommend him to anyone."
