I had an incredible experience with Dr. Catalano! I had been having issues with De Quervain's on and off and was seeing an orthopedist. I woke up one day and my hand was spasming out of control. Dr. Catalano saw me on his day off and was attentive and caring. He made me feel completely at ease with the fact that I needed surgery ASAP to fix my issues. Going in for surgery during a pandemic was very scary, but Dr. Catalano kept me chatting and laughing throughout the whole thing. After the surgery was over, he followed up with me every 2-3 days without prompting to make sure I was okay and would answer my questions after hours or on weekends. I would highly, highly recommend Dr. Catalano!

When one doctor told me I needed shoulder surgery due to a ski injury. I searched for a second opinion. The staff was great as well as the doctor. I did need surgery, but felt more comfortable being treated by Dr. Catalano. He really put me at ease about the whole procedure. The surgical staff assisted me quickly on all the necessary information. I recommend everyone to him.

Dr. C. performed hand carpal tunnel surgery for me. I was astonished at the immediate improvement, noticeable the moment I emerged from the anesthesia. Highly recommended.

Dr. Catalano operated on my right hand 10 yrs ago (thumb arthroplasty) it was a huge success. I no longer have any pain and have full range of motion. People are shocked at how good my hand looks and that the scars of three separate incisions are barely visible. This year it was time to do a similar procedure on my left. I was promptly given an appointment and the same kind, caring man with a warm sense of humor walked in the room. Dr. Catalano is a great clinician but also able to set a patient at ease. He doesn't sugar-coat instead he explains everything in a clear and concise way. You know he will do everything possible to bring about a successful outcome with as little pain as possible. His support staff is exceptional and all greet you with a smile and a can do attitude which comes from the top down.

Dr. Catalano is an excellent surgeon. He explains things very clearly and likes to exhaust nonsurgical treatments before recommending surgery. For me, these have included physical therapy and cortisone shots. He is very personable and very willing to answer questions. And I have never had to wait more than a few minutes to see him.
I first saw Dr. Catalano in 2007. He did a carpal tunnel release on my left hand and the outcome was excellent. In 2012, after physical therapy and cortisone shots, he performed a basal thumb arthroplasty on my left thumb, basically removing some very painful arthritis. This was a success without complications and that thumb continues to feel much better today. On May 20, he performed the same operation on my right thumb, and it is doing great.

I met Dr. Catalano for the first time just off a google search of his practice and I couldn't be happier. His staff was incredible, no wait time to see him, and it was the first time in years that I felt he listened to. He was interested and made me feel comfortable right off the bat. He was warm, caring and seems like an all around great guy. He even contacted me over the weekend when he wanted me to answer a few questions about past history. His assistant couldn't have been more thorough and didn't make me feel ashamed when I had a lot of questions about my upcoming surgery. I highly recommend him and I look forward for relief of my carpal tunnel with surgery on the 27th. He was able to fit me in at an earlier date than I expected. I highly recommend.

Most doctors today are businessmen, but Dr. Catalano is a physician who truly cares about his patients. He cares deeply for his patients and treats them with the utmost care and concern. Dr. Catalano performed 2 surgeries on my husband and had the best bedside manner of any surgeon we have ever worked with, along with personal follow up. Dr. Catalano actually saved my life in 2016, when he diagnosed me with a blood infection that other Dr's thought was an orthopedic problem. Dr. Catalano followed up with us on a daily basis until I made a full recovery. In 2018 you would be hard pressed to find a doctor who is so knowledgeable and gives you the old school personal treatment.

When my 15 year old son needed to have a wrist surgery many, many years ago, Dr. Catalano, put him at ease and treated him like his own son. I appreciated that the doctor explained to him the process and his staff was amazing.
