FANTASTIC! Dr. Catania is direct and explains everything. I appreciate how he works with me and provides ideas to control my pain issues... Seriously, he's just terrific! I have been sent for MRIs...and have had blocks with him...absolutely no complaints. I recommend him 100%!

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!
