Very unprofessional and poor bedside manner. Spoke to him as an on-call doctor after finding out I had been exposed to someone who had COVID. He accused me of lying and was too busy to answer questions. Another family member saw him for testing 5 days ago and has called back multiple times since, and Dr. Catania still has not returned the call with the results or instructions as promised.

Never have I met a doctor so in tune with patient needs. Dr. Catania goes above and beyond. His actions show he truly cares about each and every one of us. I came to him with an immediate need, I received a phone call within 5 minutes, from the dr, not office staff. He has guided me through my illness the past three days without one complaint. He listens to everything I have to say, adjusts my plan as needed and doesn’t make me feel like just “another patient”. Docs like this are hard to find. I’m so grateful for his knowledge and compassion through this obstacle in my life!

Can't believe this doctor could have poor reviews. I am constantly impressed with his attention to detail. He is always prepared for his appointments. In this I mean he remembers the patients current and past issues. He asks questions and waits for the answer. I have never felt rushed. Never felt like he isn't listening. I could ask for a better doctor.

During the Covid outbreak the doctor has not only put his health and well being aside to do the right thing for his patients, he has also made himself available on off hours to answer many of our families unanswered questions! He has such a healing soul about him! We are thankful for Dr Catania and his staff!

Worst bedside manner I’ve ever experienced from a doctor. He doesn’t listen, assumes you’re an idiot and talks to you as such, and makes judgements before receiving all of the facts. I seriously cannot believe he actually has patients.

Not sure what the negative post was about but this doctor really cares, he spends time, is knowledgeable, follows up the next day with our family... and we even have his personal cell number ... I guess you can’t please everyone 100% of the time, but this doc sure tries

Horrible Care. If you have serious issue, stay way from him. He is good for wellness visits only.
