Kathy Comella has been our favorite medical provider for the past 30 years. She is responsive, pro-active, and genuinely concerned about your health and welfare. She provides medical care of the higher order and I donate to Highland in her honor.

Kathy Comella, RNP. Took care of my knee injury. She was very knowledgeable, approachable, and followed through with setting up referrals and tests right away so that I could go on a scheduled vacation.

This was the first time I met her, as my doctor of 35 year had retired and I was moved to this practice. I thought Kathy was wonderful at the visit, attentive and a great listener. However, I had a blood test done and she said she would call me by the end of that week to discuss the results. I had two results that were not good and I was concerned so I sent a message via MyChart. It's been a week now and she never called me or responded to the message. This is not acceptable to me.

Feb 21, 2023

Highly recommend and have recommended Kathryn's care to others. She provides what many have forgotten or lost in our medical community, compassion. She is a true partner in my health care and I appreciate her expertise and advice.

I cannot say enough good things about the care I received from Kathy (Comella). I had a somewhat acute skin issue upon waking in the morning and was concerned it could be cellulitis. I called and was in her office within 2 hrs of calling. She did a thorough history and exam and came up with a plan of care that helped and kept me out of the emergency room. She was professional, personable and provided truly excellent care. I am very grateful. Thank you Kathy.

Kathy was so caring, understanding and listened carefully to me when discussing my current concerns. She developed a manageable & reasonable plan.

I trust Kathy and feel that we have developed a great relationship and that gives me comfort. She is always very pleasant.
