Patient Comments (2)
Dr Katona was the on call doctor for the ID Specialist I have been seeing recently. When things took a turn this weekend, I called to discuss my symptoms. Later in the evening, symptoms worsened and I called back, seeking his advice. In a rude and condescending tone, he told me to go to the ER, as he had instructed before if things got worse. Thanks. Wouldn't recommend him in a city full of great doctors, willing to take a couple minutes with a patient.

I had my first appt. yesterday. I have NEVER had a doctor spend over an hour with me, explaining in detail what was wrong. He is very nice, great bedside manner, patient and took ALOT of notes. Found out I had a heart murmur that no one has ever detected. I would make the 1 1/2 hr drive to see him again!!
