I found Dr. Katta to be very rude and dismissive. He didn't listen to my concerns and blatantly talked over me. Some of his staff was kind, but he was not.

Every appointment is an hour plus wait. One visit I had to wait three hours, another was nearly a five our wait. The time I waited over four hours the nurses apologized and said he just hasn't reported to work yet. He was even three hours late to my scheduled heart cath. I've tried calling for follow up appointments, left messages with no response, even at times his answering service said his phone wasn't working. I'm looking for another doctor, you should too.

I am a 20 year patient of Dr. Katta. I had my first MI at 38 and am now 75. I have had multiple Cardiologists in my lifetime before I met Dr. Katta and he is by far the best I have had help from. He has not only treated me, but also my two brothers, one of which coded on the cath table. Dr. Katta literally saved him and coordinated with a top rated heart surgeon to correct the problem with a CABG. He treated my Dad until he passed at 96. I highly recommend Dr. Katta.

Dr Katta is a great doctor. He really put us at ease, explained everything so we could understand and seemed to really care. Staff was very friendly, the only drawback was how long we had to wait. He spent plenty of time with us but 3 1/2 hours is a bit much.
