I do not EVER leave negative remarks about doctors, but Dr Katsnelson at Stanford was so insensitive toward me. I have a rare illness that requires some patience, and this Dr (whom I saw a total of three times) was so rude to me. I would even say that he was cruel. It is easy to have a good experience with a Dr when you have a common ailment that they easily understand. No problem! But the true test of heart for an MD is when a tough case walks through the door. I met someone else at my support group who happened to see him as well. They said the same thing that I am saying here. He is a cruel and unkind man. Stanford should be ashamed to have him represent them. He teaches there too?! Shameful.
