Dr. Cata became my doctor two years ago when I needed to change cardiologists. What a difference he has made! His caring and upbeat personality helped me get through my major open heart surgery and the complications that came with it. My husband and I love him and enjoy interacting with him at my visits. I'd highly recommend him. As far as I'm concerned, he's the best!

Dr. Cata saw my father when he was brought into the ER at Soin during a very unexpected & scary heart episode. He was quick to act and performed a heart catheterization and angioplasty. unfortunately stents weren't possible due to major blockages (3 ranging 50% 80% and 95%) His bedside manner, communication and care was exceptional My 86 yr.old father was transferred to KMC for a triple bypass. I most highly recommend Dr. Cata!

Doesn't care. After weeks of waiting for my appointment date to come up, he cancelled the appointment and did not notify me or my care givers. At a much later date, his office called me to set up an appointment. When I finally got to see him, he brushed off my request and did virtually nothing. Waste of time!

Dr. Cata was extremely helpful in a very stressful time - heart by-pass surgery which was totally unexpectedly required.

I had an appointment with Dr. Cata and it got cancelled, no one at his office bothered to inform me of the cancellation, I showed up after taking two hours of sick time for the office visit to be informed I didn't have an appointment. They were very sorry, but sorry doesn't get me back my two hours of sick time. Then they waste an hour of my time running around trying to see if the Dr. can fit me in, just to tell me he can't. What a waste of time. I'll never go back!
