What People Say About Dr. Joseph Catania, MD
Reply
I would NEVER recommend ANYONE to NY Spine and Wellness or SOS. They are obviously in bed together. I HAD to have a MRI with SOS, even though I did not want one there, they told me it was required. There is a 3 week wait. However, that isn't the kicker, Dr. Catania wanted me to schedule nerve blocks under sedation prior to getting the response. Good thing I waited. My issues weren't due to my back, not even a bulging disc. My issue was my actual intestine. Charge people and churn them out!
