Recently i had a deep cut in my hand - at the ER, the attending physician was unsure if had tendon damage and recommended we consult with a hand surgeon before proceeding. I called Dr Catalano on his cell and he talked the ER staff through the steps to take to ensure the tendon was not damaged.....whilst he was on vacation! Subsequently he performed my follow up care and arranged to see me at short notice during lunch time and after work. Great patient care and wonderful bedside manner - THANKS.

One of my favorite doctors--HANDS down. I have had several surgeries and treatments with Dr. Catalano and he is a superb surgeon and human being. Very caring and thoughtful and really makes sure all your questions are answered about the options you have. I always enjoy going to see him because he's such a pleasant presence. Highly recommended.

He's all about surgery. I saw Dr. Catalano for a minor hand fracture. The experience was rushed, and informal. He did not do a good job of explaining my injury and options. He pushed surgery without even explaining a non-surgical option. He was dishonest in his report stating that I wished to proceed with surgery. Seeing Dr. Catalano delayed me in getting proper attention for my injury. I thankfully saw another surgeon who was honest and am now in-process with non-surgical healing.
