Success Stories

People who have worked with Katie and Pictal Health have discovered a new, more visual and collaborative way to understand their health and work with their doctors.

 
My doctor’s exact words were “WOW this is exactly what I try to do in my head when talking to patients, this is so useful!

“It wasn’t clear before how much big life events, like moving to a new place, experiencing the loss of a loved one, or dealing with illness, really impact my anxiety and make me feel out of control. My therapist said, ‘It wasn't as clear to me until we looked at this together.’ The map put everything into perspective for me, too.”

“Wow. I can’t tell you how much seeing this completed means to me. I honestly broke down and cried because I felt so seen in a way I haven’t for a while now. I showed my counselor/therapist the finished product and she thought it was the coolest thing ever.”

- M.S., Arkansas


Thank you for getting me here with the most confidence I’ve had to articulate my situation. The design was SUPER helpful and the doc was also very impressed/appreciative.”

- D.J., Vermont


“We used the visual to correct when things went wrong in the conversation. It was a way for [the doctor] to get back in tune with me and what I was talking about. This was one of my more collaborative, productive appointments. I had a positive feeling of sharing and collaboration, which is quite remarkable.”

“It got us quickly to a point that I haven’t gotten to in other appointments.”

- J.A., Vermont


“The doctor spent a full hour and a half with me talking through my health history and doing the tests. I took my timeline and graphic out for him and he immediately took pictures of them for his records and he studied them intently. He said I was the first person to have ever presented such a thorough health history and he was keenly interested.  

I felt completely listened to and he definitely tailored the diagnostics around the information he gained, most particularly from the graphic.”
