What People Say About Dr. Edward Cattau Jr, MD

Writing this for my elderly family member. After years of suffering with a daily GI problem, Dr. Cattau was the only doctor who correctly diagnosed the patient’s condition and prescribed successful treatment. Patient had consulted several respected physicians including 2 other GI doctors who all offered misdiagnoses. Because of Dr Cattau’s astuteness, I am scheduled to see him soon as a patient myself.
