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.
I have been coming to this facility for 12 years now and seen by Dr, Catalona and his staff ever since my surgery performed at this hospital. Dr. Catalona and his staff have always been both professional and carrying.
Dr. Catalona was very pleasant, concerned and helpful. He took the time to recommend to me a dr. in AZ where I will be for the next few months. As usual, his demeanor was/is exceptional - I'd almost make an appointment just to talk with him.
I never feel rushed. Dr. Catalona is thoughtful and considers all the points. My case was complicated as certain indicators looked good and others looked like I would have poor results. I did not get this level of expertise in my home town, and I travel over 2 hours to seek him out.
I am always amazed that Dr. Catalona responds directly to questions that I submit in MyChart. I had completed a pre-appointment survey and had expressed some concerns about anxiety and depression and he called to talk to me before my scheduled appointment.
In my opinion, no other Doctor is more compassionate or capable than Dr. Catalona. I have highly recommended him to a number of my friends and acquaintances. As well as, Northwestern Medicine. I feel confident and comfortable in their care.
Doctor Catalona explained examination steps prior to the exam. He was patient with me. He was very thorough in reviewing prior history and test results. He was thorough and easy to understand in explaining my options for treatment. He offered multiple recommendations regarding follow-up care. I was very pleased with Dr. Calalona.
Dr. Catalona is amazing. He is an expert that took all the time I wanted to answer my questions. He is thoughtful (i.e., walks me out every time I visit) and had great inter-personal skills in addition to his exceptional medical skills. I am so pleased I chose him as my surgeon and made the trip from out of state.
