At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
Dr. Catalona is a world-class surgeon that was evident throughout my prostate cancer treatment. When I faced cancer, I wanted to make sure that I had the best since my life and family depended on it. I found that Dr. Catalona was very accessible, easy to talk with and did excellent follow-up during the pre-surgery and post-surgery process. He also involved my wife in the process so she was comfortable with the decisions and alleviated her fear.
Competent world class surgeons and capabilities. Dr. Catalona and his staff were exceptional and now cancer free. The key issues was his ability to provide perspective on best treatment methods and his recommendation was well reasoned. The hospital staff on the urology floor were top notch.
He is a world leader in Prostate Cancer research and has an incredible amount of experience in prostate surgery. My outcome was great, disease not evident for 12.5 years so far and continence is perfect.
I have always liked Northwestern Hospital they have the best doctors there. Northwestern is the elite of the elite it's the who's who of hospitals I have to pay out of my pocket because my insurance does not cover Northwestern anymore or you don't take my insurance anymore I paid $500 today out of my pocket to see Dr catalona and I left with a smile on my face
William Catalona, MD has provided excellent care for me has a prostate cancer patient. I believe that William Catalona, MD is a remarkable and outstanding doctor. I would recommend William Catalona, MD to other men who have prostate cancer or other urology issues.
Dr. Catalona is a leading prostate cancer researcher and one of the world's top prostate surgeons. He's always shown patience in answering my questions and he listens to my concerns. Some doctors with a reputation for having expertise in their respective field on par with Dr. Catalona are less prone to listen to their patients' concerns. Not so with Dr. Catalona. If any of my friends or brothers are diagnosed with prostate cancer, I will plead with them to see Dr. Catalona for a second opinion. He's Chicago's finest.
Dr. Catalona is thorough and current on all things related to prostate health. I know of no other man who, despite seeing their urologists for years, even at major institutions like RUSH and Loyola, have heard of the PHI score of % free PSA. At Northwestern, I receive the best of care.
From an individual who came in just for a second opinion, I was told I needed to have a radical prostatectomy, and he was going to perform it and he would take me under his wings and guide me through it. Prostatectomy completed and cancer is in remission.
The unit is very well run and keep you informed if anything is delayed...Dr Catalona is a fantastic doctor, his knowledge and manner with you give you a feeling of confidence. Also he explained your situation in a way you as a layman can understand.
