RUN- I am RN- Dr Catania has a good bedside manner he doesn’t take the female cardiac patients seriously. I told him for two years my heart was working too hard my pulse was over 100 I was short of breath etc- he kept saying don’t worry about it not a problem !!!and I am a registered nurse with a specialty in cardiology. He said don’t worry it’s OK my dad lived til 95. With a pulse of 95!! WRONG!!! Fast forward -I have a blockage in my LED 60% run as fast as you can from this GUY!!!

They don't tell you till the last minute that the stress test you do IN THEIR OFFICE is actually an outpatient hospital procedure. Rather than costing $300 - $400 as most other cardiologists in the area charge, and covered 100% by Horizon as an in-office procedure, it is actually an outpatient procedure, subject to your deductible and costs almost $1,000 that YOU have to pay. Their wallet takes priority over your health. Check your insurance benefits before going here. Be warned!

I have been under Dr. Catania's care for over 10 years now. He is an amazing doctor and an equally amazing person. There is no doctor who I have ever trusted as much as I trust him.

Dr. Catania provides a holistic approach to me and my husband. He listens to us. I don't feel rushed when speaking to him and I know that should I need him in an emergency, he'll be there. My husband and I make our office visit at the same time and usually arrive early so waiting 10-15 minutes is not an issue. Staff are very professional from receptionist thru testing.
