USC University Hospital

"The staff was extremely kind and attentive. The nurses were knowledgable but could have known a bit more about dealing with bariatric surgery patients specifically. But all my procedures went without a hitch and they were very accomodating and patient in answering mine and my mothers questions."

"I was very pleased with my consultation with Dr. Katkhouda at USC University Hospital. Another person from this website shared her experience meeting him with me, which helped encourage me to remain positive. That helped put me in the right mind set. Him and his staff were extremely professional and kind. He was sincere and straightforward. I did my homework on him and the procedures he offers ahead of time and that impressed him. I found myself highly impressed by his credentials, especially by the French Legion of Honor Award he will recieve shortly, the highest award given in France, started by Napoleon. Both my parents are physicians and are extremely tough to win over, were quite astounded by his credentials. But more importantly, he focused on me and my needs. rnrnI'm in the process of figuring out what procdures I need to have done versus the one's I recently had done for an annual phyical I had. That's getting a little complicated and I wish it was a little more clearly presented by his office with some official documentation (that's what my PCP office said to me) but considering everything, I'm happy with how things have gone so far.
