Patient Reviews:  I highly recommend Kathryn, she is not only incredibly informative for patients, but her drive to ensure more doctors know about these conditions keep her on the road meeting with vascular surgeons and hospitals, etc. to teach & train them on what they are and how to treat them.  She got started in the lymphedema filed when one of her friends had cancer and got lymphedema and could not find any help, so she learned and became a specialist in the field.  I was her first patient in
Saratoga Springs and she went out of her way to work with me on those early months when I had to visit her daily for MLD and bandaging.  She is personable, became a dear friend of mine and her staff are amazing, too.
