I like that she took her time with you and didn´t rush her explanation so she could get to her next patient.
From day one, Dr. Horan has been great! She does an outstanding job! She is special!
Love the portal communication as well.
Dr. Horan is tops!!
Dr. Horan always takes into consideration all that I have to say, and is very thorough in answering my questions. Dr. Horan is very good in explaining why she believes the next steps in diagnostics may be useful - as well the expected outcomes, and if uncertainty is the name of the game, expresses why there is uncertainty.
Dr. Horan is an excellent provider! I trust her completely with my care for my terminal Lung Disease. She takes time to answer questions thoroughly.
I hope I never have to refer anyone to Dr. Horan, but she´s excellent with regard to my particular illness. I appreciate her care and concern.
Can´t say enough about the care Dr. Horan provides she is an excellent and caring physician.
Dr. Katy Horan has been most compassionate, helpful and responsive. I am grateful.
The dissatisfaction I have with the care provider is that she discounts my own knowledge about my condition.
This appt. was my first at Virginia Mason. Dr. Horan was SO kind & patient. She spent an hour with me. I´m 76 and been to MANY doctors. Not one of them spent the time w/me as Dr. Horan!! #8. Over an hour!!!
She is very good & courtesy.
Kathleen Horan is my pulm. dr. - she´s the best, gives me time I need - I never feel like she is rushing me through.
Dr Horan made a special effort to see me in a timely manner , Coming in from a nearby meeting to see me.
Excellent service. Very patient & kind.
Katie Horan is the best and I would recommend her to anyone who needed a pulmonary specialist in a minute.
Dr Horan is always great informative knowledgeable and caring.. She rocks
This doctor is wonderful I never feel rushed and she always answers my concerns.
DR. Horan was very clear and helpful when explaining my condition and going over the plan we are following.
Provide game me some excellent and previously unknown information about how fat cells can effect one´s health.
Dr. Horah is probably the most informative and plain speaking doctor I have had.
The doctor rediagnosed a long-standing problem, and recommended a plan-of-care to deal with a chronic problem that I feel confident with. I was very impressed with Dr. Horan´s thorough analysis and problem-solving skills.
As a patient with no appointment and just showing up in the department, I asked if Dr. Horan would work me in so I wouldn´t have to stay over night and come back the next morning. She did and in doing so, i started my antibiotics for pneumonia earlier. I can´t say enough good things about my treatment at VM. I feel very lucky to have her as my Dr.
After the non-communicative doctor I had in the beginning at Providence I´m overjoyed at the time and patience my Doctor shows me.
Dr. Horan has always been wonderful to myself and my wife. She explains things clearly. She shows compassion which we love to see.
Dr. Horan is outstanding! This is my 3rd visit with her and it is always pleasant. She asks lots of questions and LISTENS to all my answers. I love her!
Katy really listens, understands patient fears, explains complexities of my illness thoroughly. Instills confidence and trust. She is a GEM!
Best and most concerned doctor at the Hospital.
She had the attitude of "take it or leave it" could stand considerable improvement in patient counseling.
I love the way Dr. Horan explains things!
I was very impressed with Dr. Horan. She is caring, personable & knowledgeable. I am hopeful that she can help me find a solution to my health issue.
I couldn´t have found any doctors so caring. Just love them. Kathleen Huron is special to me.
Dr. Horan is fantastic!
Very nice doctor - concerned about me and my care. Will continue with her service - Only wish her office practice was in my city Issaquah, WA 98027 - Traveling to Seattle is difficult for me.
She seemed hurried.
I couldn´t ask for better care than they gave me.
scared but optimistic due to excellant doctors and staff at Virginia Mason
I trust this care provider implicitly. VM has no one better!
Dr. Horan impresses me as a clinician who [a] enjoys the experience of interacting with patients; [b] smiles and laughs at the humor of the human condition; [c] revels in the opportunity to apply her core skills of auscultation, palpation, percussion, inspection, & listening; [d] thinks carefully and thoroughly; and [e] communicates with ease and aplomb.
Excellent experience all around.
Although, using portal online, I asked dr. to give me layman explanation, didn´t get it.
Wish I had thought to ask for a sample of the new med she prescribed since afterwards I found out it would be $200 out of pocket! Realize she might not have had one but that would have been nice... Dr Horan is great!
Dr. Horan is one of the best doctors I have ever had. She is skilled, thorough, warm, and personable. VMMC is lucky to have her.
Dr. Horan is very knowledgeable about my condition, always is familiar with lab and radiology results, is personable, and exhibits care and concern. She is top notch.
I learned new things about a condition I have had for decades.
Dr. Horan is a superb doctor. I feel very fortunate to have her participating in my health care.
