Mean and rude
Self-verified patient of Dr. Katharine M Ammons - Posted on May 29th, 2018
Every time I have ever gone to Dr. Ammons, she has just referred me to other doctors. She never treated me herself. Whether it was just an earache, upset stomach or any other minor thing. She is just basically a referral doctor. It's common to wait in her office for two hours or more, and she and the staff act like they are doing you a favor by letting you see her at all. Some of the people that work for her are rude and disrespectful, and she herself can be a mean, hateful bully with an explosive temper. I tried to overlook these patterns for a long time, but finally had to change doctors.

She is thorough and knowledgable. She spent enough time to really understand my problem and when she had to say hard things to hear, she did so with compassion. She made me want to be a good patient and follow her instructions...and that is amazing. I have recommended her to others. They won't be disappointed. She is truly a God-send.
