Ratings for Dr. David O. Kateb
Dr. Kateb is a fantastic diagnostician. He takes his time with his patients and answers all of your questions, does not rush you out of the room. The wait time is often long but that is because he takes his time explaining diagnosis and treatment.
Waited over 2 weeks for an Appt. for my 78 year old Mother that was having pain and difficulty BREATHING! Dr Kateb comes in tells her to get on the table and does not offer to help her nor does the Medical Assistant with him, so I help her on to the Table. Dr. Kateb asks my Mother to breathe into a nebulizer, shouts at her like she was an animal that he was ANGRY at, "YOU ARE NOT BREATHING RIGHT" My Mother said she would breathe deeper at home, with that Dr. Kateb reached over shut off the Nebulizer and said "YOU ARE NOT BREATHING RIGHT HERE, YOU WILL NOT DO IT RIGHT AT HOME, I"M NOT SENDING YOU HOME WITH ANYTHING!" Dr Kateb scheduled a PET Scan for March 13, 2014, I was contacted in less than an hour of the PET Scan that my Mother had Terminal Lung Cancer with use of only her left LUNG. My Mother Died March 21st, 2014- 8 Days after Dr Kateb was very curt with my Mother and would not lend a hand helping her onto the Exam Table. My Family and I are hurt and disappointed w/ Dr Kateb.
Dr. Kateb's staff does not respond in a timely manner to normal requests regarding prescriptions, insurance. etc. The front office receptionist needs to look more professional. Piercings and tattoos on medical staff is unprofessional. She behaves like a bar-bouncer rather than a receptionist. She is rude. The waiting times are extensive, often 2 hours. The front office is very disorganized; wires strewn all over the place. Fax nevers works. No email. He is a solid doctor who talks about healthly habits but at 300 pounds the man needs to practice what he preaches. His RN is good.
