Patient Comments (2)
in Mount Laurel, NJ |
I am a local ED doctor in the area and my 5 year old son had a severely displaced and dislocated supracondylar fracture. He took him to the OR from the ED, was very kind, treated my son like his own son and made us all feel like we were in good hands. And in fact we were. 4 short weeks later the pins at out of my sons elbow, and he doesn't even need a splint or cast. He and his residents did a wonderful job.

I decided to got to Dr. Catalano after hearing how great he was through friends. However, my experience was different. I injured my ACL and was about to deploy with the military. He knew I was about to deploy based on the paperwork he had to fill out so I could submit it to command and work my way back to deployment status. He refused to help me or tell me what to do to get my ACL better. He was RUDE, trashed talked us and then told me to leave and never return. Detailed yelp review also.
Unfortunately, I have no record of this patient and have never told a patient to leave and never return. I do not believe this is a true reflection of my approach to patient and doubt this a true review.
