She was excited & positive about my A1C readings.
Patient | December 22, 2016

Provider, in my opinion, is one of the BEST!
Patient | December 21, 2016

If every healthcare provider everywhere was as attentive and helpful, we'd be a much healthier nation of people. She is outstanding.
Patient | December 14, 2016

I am diabetic and this was a scheduled check-up. Recent hospital stay and medications had compromised my blood sugars. Katherine was very helpful and encouraging during my appointment. She gave me ideas on how to get back on track and scheduled my next v

Referred to the cancer I had as the 'good' cancer. I had 2 types. I still have problems with numbness in my face. When is any cancer good?

Thank you so much for hiring Katherine. She has been amazing!

Kathrine Colvin has always been respectful, kind and explained things that were concerns with no hesitations. I would recommend her to any one with diabetic concerns.
Patient | July 26, 2016

I like that she works with you and not just tells you what you have to do.
Patient | July 2, 2016

I would highly recommend her!
Patient | June 21, 2016

There was nothing to explain or information for her to give.
Patient | June 9, 2016

She was a lovely person. After getting some bloodwork that was off, a medication change was ordered with no blood work recheck until I asked for one. I know this is just a temporary fill in provider for me until Vanderbilt assigned me to a doctor, but without a doctor like I had in the past, no one seems to be watching the care as a doctor should for their patient. The care feels very impersonal. I am sorry the department is having such problems.
Patient | May 28, 2016

Always had excellent care and concern for me as a patient.
Patient | April 29, 2016

Dr. Colvin is a very compassionate and caring provider. She put my mind at ease with my rise in A1c. Listened to my worries and fears, and was generally concerned.
Patient | April 26, 2016

Katherine Colvin is an amazing NP!
Patient | March 14, 2016

It does not matter how bad I feel or how I am concerned over my health, she always makes me feel better with encouragement with ways to do better without criticizing me.
Patient | February 11, 2016

There is a need for me to change from the one insulin I'm using in my pump to another. , since my insurance is no longer covering it. I'm always concerned when it comes to changing or starting a new med. I asked questions, which were readily addressed a
