    Patient Comments (4)
    in Orlando, FL |
    My husband was referred to Dr. Kata for urinary problems with an elevated PSA. It took 2 months to get his first appointment, then another 2 months for a prostate biopsy. Dr. Kata was very abrupt in telling us that my husband he had cancer. After bone and CT scans were scheduled to check for metastases, we couldn't get an appointment for 3 weeks until I sat in the waiting room until they set the appointment earlier. Luckily no spread, but we felt rushed and Dr seemed cold and unfeeling.

    Rude, abusive. Needs anger management counseling. Seriously disrespectful of patient.
    in Davenport, FL |
    Dr always seems rushed - both at office visits and procedures. Never given time to ask questions and confirm diagnosis and procedure are understood. Seemed annoyed when patient trying to ask questions and Dr. Kata got defensive. Office staff take 24 hours to return messages (if they are returned at all). Multiple office staff asked for urine sample during visit (after already given). Another patient's urine sample was still sitting in the cabinet.
    Dr. Kata seems to just wanna get in and get out. Seems rushed during appointments and agitated when asking questions.
