I was blessed Dr. Catalane was on call the night I had my surgery. I was on my third day in great pain at St. Clair. They knew there was blockage but couldn't find where. Dr. Catalane told me that night, "I can't go home tonight with you in this much pain." He had me in surgery within the hour. He literally was a life saver. He explained everything to me before and after the surgery. I wish I could do something for him as great as what he did for me.
August 14th, 2012Appendectomy
I was visiting Pittsburgh for work, and had to go to the E.R because of my appendix. I was in a lot of pain and very nervous about my first surgery ever. Dr.Catalane was very comforting and was very informative about the procedure. By the time they put me under, I was no longer nervous and just looking forward to not being in pain anymore. The incision has healed up very quickly and I will have a very very light scare on my abdomen. I should be able to start small amounts of gentle exercise next week. Great surgeon in my opinion.

July 30th, 2011great patient care.
i recently had surgery which went very smoothly. I knew exactly what was happening and when. the office did not overwhelm me and my husband with information. the postoperative period was uneventful. I would and will highly recommend him to my family and friends. a diamond in the rough!! especially in these days.

Dr Catalane is a miracle worker. I had a colostomy and a hernia and other issues. He reversed my colostomy, repaired my hernia put a device in to prevent me from having a blood clot. I feel great and so relieved that I found some one so talented. i vote him best doctor in pittsburgh. i am from ny and you know how inpatient us new yorkers are

January 30th, 2011preoperative visit
I went to Dr. Catalane recently after going to several other specialists. He was able to coordinate my care with the other specialists. I had surgery in a timely fashion. followed up and now am back to work. I had an excellent experience and would recommend his office and kind staff to anyone. In face my best friend has an appointment with him next week. I feel so much better now and am able to get on with my life and be productive. If I need surgery again he is the guy.
January 30th, 2011the best surgeon in pittsburgh, ask any nurse who works in an operating room.
Dr Catalane saved my fathers life . He is a decision maker. He has gods Hands. He is a busy surgeon. Everyone wants to be his patient. We are lucky to have him . He is an ethical gifted physician. His staff is amazing. It is unfortunate that some people choose to recklessly post untruth as if in a teenage chat room.
January 3rd, 2011Do not go to him!
Watch out for Dr. Catalane's practice! He had done a simple procedure on me and left as soon as he was done. A surgeon should meet with his or her patient after a procedure. Also I did not get any post procedure instructions from him or his staff.He told my ...... that he wanted to see me a week after a procedure and it turned out he couldn't/wouldn't. So far he has cancelled 2 follow up appointments that I had with him. It has been almost two weeks since I had my procedure and I have little idea how my stitch line is faring. Also it wasn't until 12 days after my procedure that I was finally able to ask someone from his "practice" some questions about post operative care of the wound as well as some concerns that I had.Anytime I called I was told someone would call me back and it only happened once and I wasn't pestering them unnecessarily.I am not questioning his abilities as a surgeon per se or his medical knowledge. I am dissappointed in the lack of organization of his practice and the lack of communication and concern that I had seen from them.
