What People Say About Dr. Philip Catalano, MD
Reply
I worked with Dr Catalano worked at St Joseph's Hospital in the early 1980s and found him to be one of the most trustworthy and skilled physician I had ever met. I had the honor of working with his father in law, Carroll Reeves. Mr and Mrs Reeves were some of the most loving people I had ever met and it's interesting through all of my 43 years as a physical therapist, these 3 people share some of my fondest memories!

I've never received such good attention from a doctor before I had Dr. Catalano. He provided me his cell number in case anything happened prior to and after the surgery. He continually checked on my condition. There is no better cardiac surgeon in the South. I highly recommend him.
