Dr. Cayetano is the best Dr. I've seen. She always calls with results herself on the day she gets them and is the only Dr. we see that does that. Shame it takes so long for a new patient to get an appointment with her.

Dr. Cayetano always exhibits care & concern, even asking questions about health issues that are not her direct area of specialization. I appreciate her direct eye contact, sitting in front of me, and not hiding behind the computer!

I see Dr. Cayetano every three months for my pulmonary condition. She is an AMAZING doctor and I feel very blessed to have her as my doctor!!! She explains things well and always takes the time to listen to my concerns. She totally takes all the time necessary and I always leave feeling that I am receiving the best care possible and that she truly cares about my well being!!! I have had great success communicating with Dr. Cayetano via Kadlec's My Chart!!! I am able to write out my concerns and I know she will ALWAYS get back to me before the end of the day!!! (One time she even called me back to ask further questions about my condition! She ordered medication for me and I was able to pick it up at Walgreens within an hour!) This past summer, my husband and I were vacationing in France and I needed medical assistance. My husband sent her a message via K Chart and she asked some further questions and then recommended I go to the hospital near our hotel. She asked us to let her know the results of that hospital visit. We did so and she agreed with the medication I was given. My husband and I just can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Cayetano as a professional and as a caring human being!!! I shall ALWAYS be in debt to her for her excellent care she has given me!!!

Dr. Katherine Cayetano is very caring and attentive to my health care needs in relation to my pulmonary health. She was very thorough in her examination of me. When I had a sputum test, Dr. Cayetano quickly sent me results of the test via a short message on "My Chart." She is a good listener of my needs and explains any information to me in terms that I can easily understand. She is the best doctor I have ever had! I recommended her to my daughter who also has hereditary pulmonary issues and now is one of her patients.

04/02/2019
We started off badly. Her diagnosis of a possibility of a diagnosis of emphysema , caused me to over react. My response was utterly rude and dismissive. My fault entirely.Now I feel our relationship has been increasingly perfunctory and abrupt. [...] She is one of the very few doctors I have seen who have highly talented professional skills. I respect that. [...]
