Did you get any procedure(s) done by this doctor?   No
Date of your procedure(s):   November 30, -0001
Procedure(s) I had done:   None


Dr. Cattani talks and doesn't listen. He says he is there to help and gives his spiel and only listens to the answers you give to the questions he asks. Well, that might be less than fair. You may be able to get in a couple of questions, then he is standing up and starting out the door with his goodbyes while you are standing there with a list of unasked questions.
His office staff disclosed a personal procedure to the person bringing me there and back during paper signing, which I didn't give permission for. I had specifically asked before hand to one of the staff if the person picking me up would be made aware in any way of one of the procedures I was going to have done and was told no. This caused great embarrasment to me and lead me to cancel this procedure on the spot, at which time Dr. Cattani was extremely rude. He proceeded to claim that I had more than enough time to ask all my questions and to point out all the equipment and people who had shown up to do my surgery, as well as the fact that he had traveled all the way there from Manhattan just for me (not really my problem and I wasn't made aware of his travel schedule). He also basically threatened to sue for the right to keep my deposit, although I hadn't said a word about getting it back. Needless to say, I am very disappointed in the time and money I wasted in him.
