Verified Patient Reviews
Great personality and bedside manner, I've seen a couple of doctor's about my issue and she explained it (and healing options) very clearly and seemed knowledgeable.
Very skilled doctor and highly recommended! Her exam was thorough and she carefully explained what the problem was and how we were going to treat it.
I got a second opinion from Dr. Catalano. She explained everything super well, made sure all of my questions were answered, and was also just really pleasant to be around. Loved her!
Dr. Catalano was great. Listens well, takes you through your options and is very responsive. The only thing that really took time was the x-ray performed by the radiologist company on the same floor. Not the fault of anyone, it's just a small place with one room so backups are likely.
quick, efficient, friendly, informative
Dr Catalano is awesome. She is very friendly and detailed. I was so impressed with the service and attention i received throughout my visit. I definitely recommend Dr Catalano to anyone looking for a podiatrist.
Professional and friendly - and provided immediate relief for my toe pain!
She was very professional and descriptive about the issue and clearly asked if I had any concerns or questions. Very caring and pleasant to speak to. Being a first time visit I was worried, but as soon as I spoke to the Doctor it changed my mind. I will definitively come again in the future if any issues.
Doctor Catalanotto was knowledgable, sweet, and just all around fantastic!!!
Jasmine is an exceptional and highly knowledgeable doctor. She went above and beyond to make sure my sprained ankle was properly cared for after a prior rush visit to urgent care. She thoughtfully explained everything in understandable terms and did a very thorough exam. She genuinely cares about her patients and takes the time necessary during her appointments for a proper diagnosis and treatment. I would highly recommend her to anyone with foot/ankle pain and injuries!
She is super professional; extremely friendly; was amazing and fast with her treatment and recommendations. Very thoughtful and will absolutely return.
Dr. Catalano is the best doctor I've ever been to. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Catalano was great! She was very clear and concise in her explanation of my injury and treatment. She is incredibly kind and has a great sense of humor!
It is so rare to find a doctor like Dr. Catalano. She is so pleasant and truly cares for her patient. The first time I met Dr. Catalano several years ago for a dislocated toe. And I have to say it was the most amazing experience. She is the nicest, most friendly and caring physician I have ever met. She knew immediately that my toe was dislocated, had it xrayed (and of course she was right) took care of the pain, put it back in place and I was ready to dance out of her office. She even called me the following day to ask how I was feeling! I saw Dr. Catalano for another injury today and once again it was the same pleasant and positive experience as the first time. She is a gem.
Best Doctor Exp. Ever !
Very thorough and professional. Recommended me to an excellent specialist.
Dr. Catalano was incredibly thorough, informative and professional. I would recommend her to anyone who has a foot problem!
Excellent Doctor Really cares
Dr. Catalano is an exceptional physician. I am no expert in medicine of any kind but I can say that I have seen a few different doctors for my condition. Finally getting results with Dr. Catalano. Thank you!
She was great! Very enthusiastic and helpful. I felt very at ease once we started speaking. She was straightforward and honest. I am so happy I found her. Totally recommend. Thank you Dr JC
I was given great care at Dr. Catalano's office. Her staff was very professional. Took a very thorough history. The Dr. Has excellent bedside manner. She listened and gave me the best possible options for treatment. She didnt rush the visit. She took her time with me and made sure I understood everything before ending the visit. I would recommend her to anyone needing a good podiatrist. My feet have taken a beating and she has been instrumental in getting me back up on my feet (pardon the pun).
She's a wonderfully passionate and enthusiastic doctor. Attentive, thorough and very clear. A lovely breath of fresh air.
Very professional & a nice person. Knows how to talk to my 4th grade child. Made everyone comfortable.
Professional! Efficient! The best!
Very pleasant experience. Quick diagnosis, answered all the questions I had!
Very sweet, professional and caring. Made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Catalano was thorough and knowledgeable. She has a wonderful bedside manner and was extremely helpful in pinpointing my issue, as well as reviewing treatment. I had a great experience.
Very attentive and professional ????
Caring physician who promotes ease.
She was great.
Great doctor with wonderful bedside manner
Was not kept waiting; great bedside manner; efficient but not curt; friendly.
She's the best. Very helpful & informative.
Could not be happier with my appointment. Very smart and helpful. Would recommend her over anyone. Waited about half hour, but it was easily worth the wait.
Dr. Catalano is highly professional and has wonderful "bedside" manner.
She was professional yet friendly, very helpful, a good listener.
I have worked in the medical field for 20 years as a hospital administrator. I write healthcare policy, manage practices and run large programs. This was a very poor visit for the following reasons: The staff and Dr Catalano were all very poor communicators. Every time someone approached me they never told me who they were, what they are there to do. (I would ask, "are you a doctor, nurse, scribe, etc..") It was never confirmed who I was (providers are required to ask for 2 patient identifiers like Name, DOB, each time they see a patient for basic safety reasons. I was never asked. After seeing my x-ray the doctor said "im only 40 and you really should see Dr X about your condition" She wasnt sure of my diagnosis and she lacked confidence about my condition. The doctor knew that my pain score was a level 8 out of 10 but never addressed what I should do. I had to bring it up as i was leaving. she responded to take OTC anti inflammatory meds. I pressed her and she told me to make an appointment with a pain specialist. She couldn't help. So I have a questionable diagnosis, lack of communication about my treatment, no plan for pain, but i'm told to wear a boot. In order to figure out if my insurance covered the boot, I asked for my CPT code for my diagnosis. The doctor and the rest of the staff didnt know and couldnt find out. The nurse who gave me the boot didnt tell me how to wear it, didnt ensure the fit, or when not to wear it, etc... no information. She just left it in the room for me. But she said that my insurance will cover it. (She was wrong, it didnt) The doctor didnt communicate effectively about what i can and cant do, (how far can i walk, can i swim?.. etc...) i had to ask all these questions. Doctor offered no information. The doctor tried to be gracious and offered to eliminate the visit. (thinking i cared about paying the copay vs competent medical care.) I wasnt given any discharge information about my diagnosis, or educational materials about my treatment - these things are standard when patients leave. When i asked the doctor, she snapped "i told you to see do X" and refused to give me any educational materials about my condition. As you can imagine, I won't be going back
Dr. Catalano was so kind and shared her knowledge in a very relatable way. She explained the procedure and talked you through it and made it very comfortable to ask questions!
Very great, profession
Dr. Catalano was lovely. She was kind, explained everything thoughtfully, and treated me quickly and efficiently. She gave me easy to follow and specific advice for preventing further injury. The office itself was pleasant enough, though I did wait a bit longer than I'd like, this is often to be expected.
Very knowledgeable and efficient. And good sense of humor.
Doctor was very thorough and treated me well.
She was awesome loved her she knew exactly what I had will definitely go back
Dr. Jasmine is very passionate about her work and seemed to really take the time to make sure her patients understand everything about their condition or issues.
The whole process at mount Sinai is just time consuming. People seem lazy and are busy doing everything but their job. Didn't seem like a professional environment - music in the X ray room was explicit and the X-ray technicians were talking about weddings, markers, whatsapp etc.
Excellent doctor. Knowledgeable, caring, understanding, thoughtful, patient, and solution-oriented. And she listens to you.
Dr. Catalano is one of the best doctor's I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. She is very thorough and attentive and knowledgeable. It is clear how much she cares about her patients and is passionate about her work
The ideal doctor situation: thorough, provides clarity on her diagnosis and makes sure her patients feel 100% confident with their questions/concerns before leaving her office. Overall incredible!
Dr. Catalano is amazing! She has a great bedside manner and is very personable. What I appreciate most is her honesty. I have been considering undergoing a surgery on my foot and she has been helping to guide me in the decision making process for over a year now, ensuring I get the best outcomes to address my concerns and making me feel she is putting my best interest first. Highly recommended!
Great! Friendly, knowledgeable, answers questions clearly.
Dr. Catalano is reassuring and funny and extremely capable
She is so kind and caring and competent. I highly recommend her.
Dr Catalano was amazing! Very thorough and has an extremely positive attitude. Highly recommend!
Dr. Catalano was such a positive experience! Highly recommend her!!
She was super friendly and takes her time to explain things
Very pleasant. very attentive to the matter at hand.
Excellent bedside manner and extremely knowledgeable. Confident. Humane. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Dr Catalano was excellent.
Fantastic Dr. - Her professionaism far surpasses any other Dr I have ever dealt with. She is caring & attentive and more importantly, empathetic. She is extremly smart and knowledable regarding her practice and procedures. I would highly recommend her to anyone - wish there were more like her. She is truly (1) in a million.
Jasmine is legitimately the best overall doctor (not just podiatrist) that I have ever visited. Below are the reasons why: 1) She knows the costs of all of her treatments. I cannot tell you how many doctors have prescribed insanely expensive, wasteful procedures to me while blissfully unaware of the cost. Jasmine not only knew the going rate for "custom orthotics" at many practices-- but the one she referred me to was *outside* of her practice. She not only had deep knowledge of the cost landscape, but she put her patient before herself-- this is something truly amazing. 2) She helped me analyze my past medical history-- and I'm talking outside of orthotics. I mentioned to her that my last primary care physician was a goofball (he was), and she said "oh, did he analyze your tests with you?" I said no and she immediately jumped into a thorough analysis of everything that came back from my previous lab results. She helped me understand lab results that she didn't even order, and that she had no incentive to help me with. Seriously-- this is saintly behavior. 3) She didn't order me back in to see her needlessly. A lot of doctors I know would pressure patients to come back and see them because they get paid for it. But she said "nope, you should be all good after you pick up the orthotic-- no need!" To summarize, Jasmine's treatment was above and beyond-- to the point where I wish I could have her as my primary care physician, even though that's not her specialty.
Dr. Catalano is absolutely fantastic. She took the time to explain what my injury was and was empathetic and attentive. She's one of the best doctors I've had in the city!
Dr Catalano continues to be one of the best doctors I have the good fortune to be treated by! Extraordinary in every way!
Fast service, friendly, very energetic & most importantly - helpful!
She took her time and explained everything as well as answered all of my questions. I am currently breastfeeding and she took every precaution to ensure the medication she prescribed could not impact my baby.
Dr. Catalano was awesome! Answered all my questions and gave super helpful recommendations. I'm not a fan of doctors (hadn't been in 10+ years) but Dr. Catalano eased my mind and I'm considering seeing a doctor for a check up! Also the office was clean and comfortable too.
Amazing. I had gone to two doctors before Dr Catalano and no one helped me like she did! She's thorough, patient, kind and listened and addressed every concern.
I love that she geeks out about the details.
Very thorough and enthusiastic - great experience.
I have had several visits with Dr.Catalano and I have yet to be disappointed. Dr.Catalano is very pleasant and optimistic all the time, making you forget your troubles.
she was excellent. She is very good at what she does and she will guaranteed make you laugh. I liked her a lot. Looking forward to my followup visit.
She is great
She was very articulate in telling me everything that was going on. She made sure that all my questions where answered. I would recommend her to everyone.
Doctor Catalano was very professional, knowledgeable, and kind. She helped me understand the diagnosis and prognosis. Would definitely recommend! The wait time was a little long so it is recommended to arrive at least 30 mins prior to your appointed time.
Good visit, as usual. However, I waited a very long time [over an hour], compared to previous visits. At one point, a receptionist call over to ask why I was there, which I thought was a bit rude. It would have been more professional, I think, if she'd have checked with the others at the desk first, or at least come over to speak to me quietly rather than call out so all in the waiting room could hear.
Dr.Catalano is a caring, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable physicians. Her integrative approach enables one to learn about holistic methods in healing. I highly recommend her!
I would definitely recommend this doctor - Very professional, informative, attentive and helpful!
Dr. Catalano is a special human being. She is caring and informative. She was knowledgeable about what was happening with my foot and able to give me a plan of action for correction. HOWEVER the facility that she works through, Beth Israel Mount Sinai gets the biggest thumbs down ever from me. This is a beautiful building, state of the art facility with hardly no patients coming and going. I was given a false excuse regarding my insurance(Medicaid) being accepted there. I had to call my insurance provider before I could get service. It's terrible the state of politics in medicine now. After all that, I was happy to meet Dr. Catalano who was an angel.
Pleasant and thorough. I was a new patient but still things went quickly enough.
The most friendly knowledgable caring doctor I've ever had. It's a shame she only does feet because I would use her for any illness injury or routine procedure if I could
I wish she was a general physician and not only a podiatries, she was amazing!!!
Dr. Catalano was extremely personable and patient during my visit. And she made sure to alleviate my foot pain and not hesitate to check in with her with additional ailments.
Dr. Catalano is highly professional very very nice and personable, and compassionate. She checked me considered my problem seriously and was helpful, patient and detailed in her response to me. I'm amazed to find such a effective professional using an online search.
She sounds technical good but makes you come several time for tests and tests and to read the results to tests! Of course every time she is being paid. Months after you are still waiting for an action that can help you with your health issue. Nothing is done and you find yourself having wasted time and seeking for another doctor! I dont recommend her
First time I felt I was seeing a podiatrist who was a true professional. She explained everything and provided me with follow-up instructions.
Dr. Catalano is very professional and knowledgeable.
Dr. Catalano was very pleasant and very knowledgeable. A pleasure to have been seen and treated by her.
Passionate! She took the time to listen and had compassion. Very knowledgable, a true gift to the medical world. I am so happy I went to her.
She's great! Very efficient and knows what she's talking about.
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Catalano. I felt she addressed my problem quickly and accurately and gave me useful next steps until my follow-up appointment with her. I would recommend!
Excellent service, kind and thorough care from Dr. Catalano. I happily recommend her. Pat R.
Dr Catalano was very knowledgable about health and wellness and gave me great advice and care. I came in with swelling on the side of my foot and she provided an x-ray to make sure nothing was broken, then gave me a referral for physical therapy which I attended for 2 months (it turns out my foot is sore because my hips are weak and I'm overcompensating during sports activities). Beyond that, she also gave me great advice on footwear and guidelines for physical activity, as well as some general advice for footcare. Bonus- she gave me a great recommendation for a local massage place that I have used several times since then and received great benefits from!
Dr. Catalano was amazing! She was professional, with great bedside manner! I highly recommend
She listened to my symptoms and after x-rays, discussed all treatment options fully with me. I liked her, but I had to wait 45 minutes before I was seen and the waiting room was empty.
Clear and direct, and always helpful.
She was professional and helpful and relieved my pain
Dr. Catalano is amazing! She has a very good bedside manner, and we were very happy with our visit. She is treating my teenager for a fracture and a sprain, and I would definitely recommend her as a doctor.
I am going to keep it short and to the point. My visit to this office was the worse in many years. This was my last time seeing this doctor for the extremely torturing pain on my heel. At first she prescribed therapy which I did for 3 months and had to stop because it was not working. Too pricey and no improvement whatsoever. This time around she would not even look at my foot. Prescribed a narcotic and proceeded to give me a lecture about not distributing it or leaving it unattended. In the process insulting my judgment and character. When I prompted her to perform a procedure another doctor had done 2 years back, she rudely interrupted to tell me I was now at her office and she was the doctor. She went on and on about lawsuits and malpractice, which clearly indicated she had no idea what to do to help with my situation. Obviously, as with everything in life, there is the right way and the wrong way to do something. She went on and on about the wrong way and never even tried to consider the right way. The was no attempt on her part to do anything for my foot pain other than prescribe a narcotic and ask if I wanted another x-ray done ! Seriously? She had done x-rays back in October. I wondered and asked if she did not know yet what was wrong with my foot, to what she replied yes, to which I added why do another x-ray then? Another x-ray to continue billing and poisoning my body and she had yet to even try to pretend to look at my foot. Ok granted, form the x-rays she had given me a diagnosis, but I found it irritating that she had no clue about providing a temporary relief until the MRI. Oh yes, because she gave me another referral ! She then sent me home with a surgical shoe that only served to aggravate my foot pain more since my condition requires arch support and not a flat stiff shoe. That night I ended up looking the condition up online and viewed several views which showed how to break the scar tissue and wrap the foot to alleviate pain. My partner did these for me and immediately I felt a tremendous amount of relief. My partner who has no medical training whatsoever was able to do what Dr. Catalano didn’t even considered doing. Makes me wonder why Dr. Catalano could not perform these simple remedies...instead was too busy trying to sound knowledgeable and too worried about being sued. I was not happy after the first visit but was forced to go again as my foot kept getting worse and I had no other doctor that would accept my insurance nearby. I now have an appointment to see a doctor cross town instead. I will not be visiting this office any time soon; perhaps never ever again. I had a more substantial and detailed review but zocdoc would not allow me to post it. But I am honest in all I write here and I do not enjoy giving bad reviews. If you have an ingrown toe nail or a callus that needs removing, Dr. Catalano might be the right doctor for you. If you suffer from excruciating foot/heel pain...skip the saga and find yourself a well versed doctor specialist who is not afraid to provide you with medical services that will make you feel better.
Very Sweet, knowledgeable and caring. She remembered all we discussed at several previous appointments and was full of helpful info. My foot is thankfully all healed!
Highly recommend Dr. Catalano. Great bedside manner and very clear in explaining things. Only downside, receptionist and billing are generally unfriendly
excellent doctor. Really detailed.
Dr. Catalano talks very fast BUT she answers all questions. She is extremely good at making things clear and covering all the issues. She explained something to me which no other doctor has done.
The perfect personality for this kind of medical field!
Doctor Catalano was kind and thoughtful in her approach. She considered my full medical history and was very thorough in her examination and diagnosis. She provided helpful tips and ensured I understood all the information that she share with me.
She listened to our questions and responded with great answers.
Terrible bedside manner. Did not answer my questions. Did not explain the pathology or a treatment plan. Rushed me out of the office.
Dr. Catalano was caring and interested in helping me get better soon.. Definitely will see her again. And follow the treatment plan she has recommended.
Perhaps the most thorough and professional medical experiences, ever. Highly, highly recommend!!
very kind, informative, and earnestly wants to help
I felt she rushed me out of the office and didn't give enough importance to answering my questions.
Dr. Catalano is a true professional and she takes her time with her patients. I usually walk in and I'm seen in less than 10 minutes.
Dr. Catalano is caring, thorough and professional
I made an appointment at 8:45 on a Monday morning, and was with the doctor one hour later. She is really terrific - and I'm already on the mend!
Dr Catalono is excellent. Funny, smart, and extremely attentive.
Dr. Catalano was extremely rude and unprofessional. She had come highly recommended by another doctor. This was my first visit. She did not examine my problem beyond sight before offering that she would not treat it and seemed angry that I had come in to have it examined (in spite of my history of a treatable problem in the same location by another doctor). She overreacted to my questioning and behaved in a childish manner when I questioned her behavior and demeanor. It was the worst behavior I have ever encountered in a professional office. The office staff and PA were very professional so I was surprised by the unprofessionalism of the doctor.
Very matter of fact. If you like a no nonsense doctor who will give you matter of fact answers, she is great. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Catalano is THE best! She was absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I highly recommend her! Just be mindful of the rude receptionist that will be waiting to greet you... aside from that my experience was delightful.
Dr. Catalano was amazing. She asked a ton of questions to get my background and was able to immediately diagnose the issue with an X-ray and physical exam. Highly recommend!
So professional and clear. Shared her deep knowledge of what was wrong with my foot in a generous, straight forward manner.
Dr. Catalano is great at explaining medical issues and does a fantastic job making sure patients make informed decisions. I highly recommend her to other patients.
She's great. Get's to the point, has a sense of humor and helps the issue. Would go back to her but my insurance changed and I have to find someone else.
Dr Catalano talks with is such a nice , calm and pleasant way . She asks me my opinion about treatment . She gave me different options that woul take my life/work into consideration. I trust her and would recommend her 100 percent!!!!!
Dr Catalono is brilliant!
An excellent doctor. Extremely competent and quite compassionate. She was very helpful in my case. A+++
Very good visit. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a doctor.
Very nice dr
Dr. Catalano is wonderful. Precise, gracious, welcomes questions and answers them all thoroughly. She's got a great bedside manner, she's sincere and I recommend her highly.
First visit to this cool looking new facility . Was impressed by the staff and my first encounter with Dr.Castellano who treated my issues swiftly and I walked out feeling better,what more could one wish for?
Competent, friendly and efficient.
Dr. Catalano has an excellent bedside manner and is concerned about the person as a whole. She is an excellent listener and respects that the patient-doctor relationship is a collaborative one. She also asks good questions to get to the root of the problem.
Dr. Catalano is amazing. She is so kind and caring. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Catalano is a warm and caring professional who puts the interests of her patients first. I recommend her highly.
Dr.Catalano is amazing hands on attentive caring true professional.
Wait was long, but worth it. Fantastic doctor, thorough and kind.
I have to reschedule & come back because I waited long enough & have to go to another appointment. I'm not really sure what happened but I was seen right away when I came back over an hour before my rescheduled time. Dr. Catalano is very thorough, at times too technical, but was also attentive to what I shared about my condition, past treatments & other specialist I'm seeing (I also saw a physiatrist that day). It turns out that the PT I would be having helps w/my arch & heel issues.
Excellent service and thorough examination.
Wonderful appointment. I was seen quickly, bedside manner was great and advice on what to do or not to do was great. Everything was explained in a clear manner and I was told what the course of action would be. It was also nice that x-rays were done in the same office, just a few steps away. Would highly recommend Dr. Catalano.
She is a wonderful, caring, thoughtful doctor.
Dr. Catalano is a breath of fresh air! Extremely thorough, engaging, willing and able to answer any questions and encouraging the patient to ask them! She is passionate about what she does and it shows!! Highly recommend!
She was great. Honest and professional.
Curt manner when asked when she would see me then professional when I was treated.
Dr. Catalano is one of the most awesome, incredible, fantastic doctors I have ever been to, which is a fair amount. She is passionate and excited about her specialty and focused on patient care. She is thorough, diligent, gentle, and most importantly warm-hearted and compassionate. I went in first for a nail problem on the left foot, which she fixed flawlessly. She informed me of every detail of the procedure as she worked (and gave me the option whether I wanted to know everything or nothing at all). Removing a nail sounds gruesome; Dr. Catalano made the experience more than tolerable, even pleseant! A month later, I returned for work on another nail that some other doctor did some shoddy work on. And again, Dr. Catalano maintained her incredibly high standard of medical care, which is a rare find. Dr. Catalano is a gem!!
She was an excellent, friendly, and proficient Doctor. Definitely recommend!
She listened to my concerns and then addressed them in a most effective manner. I felt she was very knowledgeable and could help me with my concerns. I would recommend her to family and friends.
Dr. Catalano is super duper communicative, going beyond my specific issue and touching upon various things that could be related. Her technical grasp is superb. The clinic also uses an EHR platform that seems pretty thorough. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
She is extremely knowledgeable and very impressive
All around excellent
very helpful and easy to talk to. her honesty and sincerity puts you at ease. she's also super knowledgeable and willing to explain everything
She is the most amazing doctor!
Dr Catalano was so incredibly friendly & knowledgeable! I am so glad I found her. Also, the Beth Israel Facility is amazing! I got X-rays immediately from a wonderful tech, I don't remember his name but he was from Ghana. I never thought I would say this about a Doctor visit but the entire experience was absolutely pleasant! Thank You!
Very smart and efficient. Highly recommend.
First, I do not usually write reviews unless its worth writing. But Dr. Catalano is beyond amazing!!!! She was very informative and kind. She had great bedside manner. Dr. Catalano answered all my questions and provided me with an abundance of information. Amazing, Amazing, Amazing! I definitely recommend her. Book her...you will not regret it.
Dr. Catalano is so amazing! I will recommend her to all my friends! Not only she is a great and knowledgeable doctor, but she also has excellent bedside manner and is super sweet!
She was great! She's really animated, helpful and caring. She took her time to explain my situation so I could understand what's going on.
Dr. Catalano is absolutely amazing. I was skeptical of reviews but the reviews are completely accurate. She's kind, helpful, knowledgeable, understanding... I wish I could clone her to be my doctor for everything!
She's passionate about feet and was thorough and informative with her treatment. 5 stars!
competent, professional, interested
I've seen rave reviews here but am always sceptical. The reviews were justified. She was patient and thorough, and above all seemed to actually care. Highly recommended.
She's great. Spent time explaining in detail what I needed to know and bonus was when she wrote notes from the visit for me to take home. Also, answered questions that I didn't think to ask. Very happy with her.
Dr. Catalano was great. Very professional, unhurried, and extremely knowledgable. Even more importantly, though, she took the time to explain everything in terms any non-medical person could understand. I highly recommend her.
Very informative, attentive, and helpful. 10/10 would return
Very thorough and professional.
EXCELLENT SERVICE! EXCELLENT PERSONALITY! ABOVE ALL, I AM SATISFIED WITH THE MEDICAL TREATMENT RENDERED! AND NOW, CONSIDER GIVING HER A RAISE for rendering professional care !
I made the appointment based on my internist's recommendation that this doctor could do something short of surgery to keep the small bunion I have developed from becoming worse. That seems to have been wrong, which is not Dr. Catalano's fault. Still she barely touched my foot during the exam and spoke so quickly I had to ask several times for her to repeat what she had said. She told me to have an X-ray without explaining why. Only afterward did I learn that it was to rule out a fracture. The office was disorganized and no one told me where to pay or seemed to know or care if I stayed in the examination room.
She's simply the best - intelligent, caring, accomodating and so much more. She definately knows her stuff - she explains in detail the issue at hand and how she intends on approaching the solution, step by step. Always a pleasure to see her, greets me with enthusiasm and a smile - she obviously loves her job and it shows.
I was extremely happy with my visit to Dr. Catalano. She was very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. She took the time to explain the reasons behind her treatment recommendations and answered all my questions. The facility is also quite modern and well run. All in all a great experience.
Dr. Catalano was very professional and kind, I would recommend her to anyone needing a Podiatrist.
I think she is great
Highly recommend Dr Catalano. She took an interest in my injury and went above and beyond to offer insight, care, and recommendations. The office also had a radiology unit on-site and she was able to immediately write a prescription and read the digital xray file. One stop shop with a great Dr, supportive office crew, and modern technology and office amenities throughout. Well done!
Dr. Catalano was fantastic, she had lots of energy, a positive attitude and great bedside manner. She took her time to answer all my questions and explain what was going on. On the other hand the nurse and the staff at the reception were not great. The nurse and the reception where a little grumpy, maybe overworked or something ? They also made me fill out a 6 page questionnarie with a lot of details for a foot appt.
This is my second visit to Dr. J. Catalano. In both occasions I was treated efficiently, courteously, and walked out healed. Please express my gratefulness to her. I will look forward to be treated by her whenever in need.
Young and Professional, great bedside manner, put me at ease!
Very detailed explanations of all the treatment options and what to expect. Easy to talk to and pleasant bedside manner. Highly recommend.
Overall was very happy with Dr. Catalano. The office was very nice and the wait was minimal. It nice how she asked me lots of questions about what was going on rather than jumping to a conclusion. She also gave me multiple at home recommendations versus trying to hard sell me into buying additional services from them.
Dr. Catalano is a quick talker but I like that. She explained everything in great detail which I also appreciated. She is thorough and caring. The ex-ray facility is located just down the hall. Dr. Catalano reviewed the ex-ray with me in detail right after they were taken. A pleasant experience all around.
Dr. Catalano is an extraordinary doctor. She is thorough, communicative and extremely polite. I returned to see her and a year later found her even more confident and caring.
Both Dr. Catalano and her nurse Kenya were an absolute delight. They go above and beyond for their patients.
Dr. Catalano was very friendly and helpful, being transparent about next steps and connecting me with an orthotics company that would work with my insurance. I would definitely recommend!
Had a long wait but Dr. Catalano was so nice & so apologetic. She took really good care of me. Would highly recommend her!
Dr. Catalano is everything you look for in a doctor. She is clearly competent and efficient, but of equal importance she is informative, supportive and is very patient.
It was awesome! Dr. Catalano helped me understand what was going on with my foot as well as explain to me what options I had to treat it. I felt very comfortable with her and was able to do the procedure and consultation all in one visit. The only down side is the wait time, but I feel it was well worth it!
The wait time between seeing the doctor, xrays and receiving the ankle brace was too long. I came in at 11:25 for an 11:30 appt and didn't leave until after 1PM. Too few nurses, halls and examing rooms were empty???
She was wonderful. Thurough , comprehensive, knowledgeable.
Doctor was great. The check-out time was really slow. I waited longer to leave than I did to see the doctor.
Dr Catalano is super nice and professional but her staff and everyone else at Beth Israel are beyond rude and how they work in the health department is mind boggling.
I'm scared of podiatrists, but Dr Catalano made me really comfortable.
Dr. Catalano was absolutely amazing. She took her time with me, explained everything in detail in and easy to understand way and could not have been more pleasant.Her assistant seemed a bit scattered but in a charming way. I'm new to NYC and feel really lucky to have found her.
It was for my 13 year old son. 8 minutes to check in as a new patient, 2 minutes to be called in, 8 minutes for the nurse intake and vitals, and 5 minutes before the doctor walked into the room. Wish my own office worked that quickly!
All I can say JC saved my life Doctor Catalano will always hold a special part in my life and my heart Thanks Doc oxox
She was absolutely fantastic! Very Smart, personalble, caring, sympathetic and direct. Would recommend her to everyone! Was so glad to find such a great Dr. :)
Dr. Catalano is not only competent but also kind and explains what is going on very articulately.
Very nice, professional, taking the time to answer questions.
Very professional and caring...I was impressed...
I had an emergency and got to see her the same day. She is very professional and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable.
This was an excellent visit. Professional, thorough, and super fast. I really enjoyed seeing Dr. Catalano and would recommend her wholeheartedly. I also liked how she took time to answer all my questions and to do a full test of not just my foot but also the rest of my legs. She has an outstanding bedside manner and I felt really relaxed with her and her nurse/assistant as well.
Felt very rushed.
Didn't seem to have any answers. Was rushed out of office
Wait time was long bc of snafu in front of office, but it was an aberration and I was very taken care of by the staff when they found out what had happened... I highly rec this doc and office :)
Dr. Catalano was very thorough and has a wonderful bedside manner. She took me right away and even set up an appointment with one of her colleagues to see me for a different matter right after.
Dr. Catalano was great and I was very happy with my choice. She was very thorough and gave me great advice. She explained my condition clearly and truly seemed interested.
Every time I go back to Dr. Catalano I'm amazed. My procedure went so smoothly and she was so informative throughout it all. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed, and I couldn't have asked for anything better.
Very professional, knowledgable, and friendly.
Perfectly professional and reasonable. I don't know a lot about podiatriatists to compare her to, so I won't give a "Highly Recommended", but I was treated well and I am perfectly happy with my visit.
Incredibly thorough and accurate. I was impressed with the doctor and her staff. I am so glad I was able to see her and will be back for my follow ups!
She is wonderful
I was very happy with my visit to Dr. Catalano was great. She is very upbeat and friendly. I'm looking forward to my follow up visit which should be interesting as she gave me an assignment that should help greatly with my condition.
She's phenomenal - she takes a lot of time explaining the array of options available to the patient and you can tell she truly cares. Highly recommended.
She is the best and staff is great !!
Excellent treatment and diagnosis of orthopedic problem. Professional and sympathetic manner. I highly recommend her for all foot problems.
I liked her alot, she is very professional
Dr Catalano was extremely informative and took extra time to go over all my options. She went above and beyond by coordinating an appointment with another Dr due to my timeline for surgery not matching with her immediate availability. I would highly recommend Dr Catalano!!!
Nice experience. Very forthcoming with all information and alternatives.
Did not even pay attention to why I came and proceeded to lecture me on a different topic rather than my concerns.
I thought she was incredible! Very articulate but down to earth. So lucky to have found her and excited to work with her more. Also boasts a great facilty and a friendly, efficient staff.
She's great! Very smart and charming.
shes a good dr. she explained what was going on with my foot in detail.
Professional, pleasant, knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her.
It was the worst. Its a nice expensive place but very thats all it is its a stuck up place including the people.wgo work there. Dr catalrano rushed to see me. She put on blue gloves took a look at my feet and did not touch my feet. Did not prescribed anything. She is Very rude. She spoke down to me. She thinks she is correct everything that comes out her mouth. I will not be recommending anyone to her. I will not go there ever again even if it were the last place on earth. Thumbs down!!!!!!!!
She is the best doctor out there hands down. knows her stuff and gives you the time and values your time. her staff is also great and follow up on appointments and Dr. Catalano is very very knowledgeable!
She is an amazing doctor. I have recommended her to my friends!
I liked Dr Catalano very much. I had to wait to see because it was late in the day and because that she is a very good doctor.
It was a good first visit and she personally called me the next day with my xray results!
This was my second time seeing Dr. Catalano, the last being two years ago, and despite the long time between, she quickly remembered the circumstances of my last visit and seemed genuinely interested in how I'd been in the interim. Her bedside manner is truly amazing - she's very kind and understanding while also conveying that she really knows her way around a foot.
Dr. Catalano is an excellent podiatrist. She is very thorough and explains everything as she goes along. I can see some patients being taken aback a bit by the explanatory nature of Dr. Catalano, but I encourage new patients to go in with an open mind and see Dr. Catalano's explanatory nature like a professor teaching you about yourself and your condition. I found her explanations very useful.
Very professional. After examine, she clearly explained my condition and then patientialy responded to each of my questions.
Dedicated doctor who takes the time to explain everything completely and take a thorough medical history -- highly recommended.
She was amazing. A breathe of fresh air compared to my other doctors (dermatologist, PC, dentist, etc.). She answered all of my questions thoroughly and made me feel at ease. She was very informative. Overall her attitude was great!
Excellent doctor. Explained everything in detail. Went to two previous doctors who could not fix my foot or offer a solution, after one visit and follow up she was able to solve the problem. My other doctors enjoyed making the $ from my repeat visits and unnecessary procedures. Will definitely be returning to Dr. Catalano with any foot problems I have.
Extremely knowledgeable and professional doctor who was clearly passionate about her work/treatment and the health of her patients, from the foot and upward. I would recommend this DPM to anybody.
I think she's great
Super-smart, she talks fast, was very helpful, gorgeous office, superb staff!
I was extremely impressed with the time Dr. Catalano spent with me, explaining my issue and making sure I completely understood my options. The guys in Radiology were very friendly and kind too.
The staffers were slow and inefficient, but Dr. Catalano is very nice and positive, and is very thorough.
Very informative and thoroughly explained everything .
Dr. Catalano is excellent, professional and easy to understand, very thorough, took the time to answer all my questions and concerns,great bedside manner, Highly recommend.
Very professional, Extremely Knowledgable, felt comfortable
A very thorough and knowledgeable doctor, highly recommended.
She is a thorough caring professional.
Very personable and open. It was clear she is very enthusiastic about her profession and takes care to deal with everyone in a caring manner. Highly recommend!
This was a follow-up visit with Dr Catalano and I couldn't be more pleased. Both times I was seen within moments of my appointment time, I was treated with interest and respect, and I left with the feeling that any difficulties I might have in the future would be easily handled. I thanked her in person and I thank her again here.
Very caring, personable and knowledgeable doctor! She evaluated my situation thoroughly including lifestyle factors and gave me a thorough explanation of my issue.
Dr. Catalano is super energetic and very informative. She is great and explained my procedure thoroughly.
Was very confusing and did not seem to know what was going on. Sadly i have to go again because of some results, hopefully my second experience will be better.
Dr. Catalano is professional, thorough, kind, and understanding. She listened to my concerns and worked to understand my circumstances. She explained my entire treatment plan clearly and always asked if I had any questions.
Fantastic bedside manner: very personable while keeping the issue at hand top of mind. Completely explains every step of the process and how she got to where she was, which was great for me. Thorough, efficient procedure, couldn't be happier.
She was very helpful, detailed and full of energy! Her recommendations has helped me.
She was very knowledgable and very down to earth. Listened to me and was extremely thorough in her examination. Glad I went to her! Also - the x-ray techs were pretty funny. :)
As good as could be.
Very knowledgeable and likeable. Answered all my questions carefully.
Fine. Again she listened and directed me for proper treatment.
Dr. Catalano is extremely attentive and aware as to how to treat my various feet problems.
Dr. Catalano is wise beyond her years. She is knowledgable, proactive and fearless! Dr. Catalano provided me with her undivided attention and tackled my issue head on. Thank you for your patience and support doctor.
She is a sweet and quirky doctor, extremely friendly. I'm totally comfortable calling up her office in case I need anything.
Excellent. Thorough and informative.
Dr. Catalano is great. Super knowledgeable and helpful. She was ready to take care of a procedure on the spot without having to schedule another visit.
Terrific asset to the community
SHE IS VERY NICE AND CARES ABOUT HER PATIENTS
Awesome smart friendly great doc
Shes really caring and thoughtful with her patients, sweet person. Very knowledgeable and humble.
Dr. Catalano is very intelligent, professional and nice. Her assistant, I think, Jennifer, is nice too. However, I have to say after the second bad experience with the "check-out" staff, I have to say something. Poor attitude, no pleasant smile or greeting even when I was nice. They shouldn't be in that field of work as they appear to hate people or their job. I was thinking of finding a new GP at this clinic but hesitate with this "check-out" staff. Final complaint was that I was charged the copay for a follow-up apt?! I usually do not get charged for a follow-up, only new cases. Strange. At my next follow-up appt, I will have to ask Dr. Catalano. And the "check-out" staff pretty much yelled at me when I questioned the copay for follow-up. Again, very, very poor attitude and customer service.
The doctor was amazing along with the staff. Very thorough and knowledgeable She is definitely one that ill recommend to anyone who wants to know for sure the problems they have. Soon undergoing surgery with her!
I've never written a review for anything in my life. Dr. Catalano was absolutely incredible. The entire experience was one of the best I've had at any doctor's office. Her whole staff was so pleasant. She gave recommendations suited specifically for me and answered all my questions patiently.
She was very nice, and professional. But I came in twice (once after physical therapy sessions) and she did not really offer anything different in terms of diagnosis or advice.
Dr. Catalano was very personable and knowledgable. She made me feel comfortable and confident that she knew what she was doing and broke everything down for me. I really felt like she cared.
Dr. Catalano was very helpful and gave me a lot of useful information.
Jasmine talks to you like a friend and is very enthusiastic about her work!
Dr. Catalano was both very professional and friendly. What I most appreciated was her less-is-more attitude towards providing non-invasive care.
Wasn't able to tell me anything that I couldn't Google. Took samples for the lab, but the office never contacted me with results. What a waste of time.
Dr Catalano is absolutely amazing. She carefully diagnosed my problem and proposed several options to remedy the issue as opposed to just prescribing $400-$1000 treatment options. She was very patient oriented, I was extremely pleased with my interaction with her.
Dr. Catalano was extremely thorough and kind. She took time to explain everything and make sure I was okay before leaving. She has a very positive attitude and I would recommend her to everyone!
Dr. Catalano is professional, detailed and friendly. It looks like her diagnosis was right thus far. I've already started to see an improvement now that she has me on a good game plan. I highly recommend her. It's also one of the cleanest/friendliest offices i've been to in some time.
The doctor was excellent. Thorough, knowledgeable, and professional. My only complaint she asked for an x ray without even looking at my foot first, which I thought was odd. I don't like how the office scheduled multiple appointments at the same time, causing people to wait. And I thought a couple of people working in the office were not very friendly. Overall, a good visit.
Jasmine is incredibly conscientious. She's checked up on my healing from surgery on a regular basis with phone calls, and will see me immediately whenever I have questions or concerns. I wish more doctors were like Jasmine!
treatment plan was overboard. ran extensive and very costly tests, required numerous follow up appts,, prescribed antibiotics and other treatments in excess, recommended surgery as first option, very negative regarding outcomes - all doom and gloom/worst case scenario. Overkill in treatment, information, testing, care plan. Exceedingly expensive even with good insurance. Things not covered. Plus over an hour late for each of 3 appointments even though mine were within first 2 hours of opening. Totally unsatisfactory unprofessional doctor. Seems to be a nice person but not a good doctor.
I went to Dr. Catalano because I thought I needed an MRI but I didn't have one. Instead she gave me a boot to wear, recommended rest and not a lot of walking. We will see in two weeks if the foot is healed and no MRI was necessary.
Dr. Catalano is a very knowledgeable doctor with a very caring bedside manner. I have already recommended her to a work associate.
She knows her stuff and explained everything very clearly. She was very nice about everything, and I felt that she was very professional, knowledgeable, and good at what she does. I am a professor, and I give her an A+!
Dr. Catalano was thorough in her examination and informative with the findings. She offered a wide range of possible treatments and took the time to adequately explain the benefits of each option.
She was great , helpful and very professional!
Dr Catalano was fine, but I had major issues with the Medical center and their scheduling. I had a 9:45am appointment and I arrived on time, and I was not looked at until 11:20am. I was not updated by anyone on how long it would take, and when I offered to reschedule, the receptionist just replied "you're next, ok?" Once I got in at 11:20am, I then needed an X-Ray and I was placed in another waiting room - the whole experience was just very inefficient.
Dr Catalano was great - very knowledgeable and professional. Unfortunately, the same can not be said of my experience checking-out on the 2nd floor. Regardless, I will return to see Dr Catalano.
Dr. Catalano explained everything clearly and thoroughly, making me feel part of the conversation. I walked away with new knowledge about feet in general and my own in particular!
A good, caring doctor who takes her time to figure out what's happening.
Great doc. Will come back (hopefully not) if I need to!
Very informative and knows her specialty. Likes to prescribe PT before any procedures that will be done to you. Better safe than under the knife.
The office was really nice, and Doctor Catalano was very friendly. She explained everything very well and did not rush the visit. I am very happy with her and will definitely use her in the future.
She is extremely serious and answers my questions in a positive and informative manner. She is very encouraging.
Dr. Catalano is the best doctor I have seen in NYC to date. I have been here for 10 years. She was extremely patient and knowledgable and also open to answer all of my questions without any hesitation. She talked to me for about 30 minutes and did not at any time show that she needed to move onto her next appointment.
She is very thorough, very sympathetic and works with you closely. However this was the second time in a row that emergencies and other problems pushed my time with her (tho I walked in and didn't have an appt) beyond 80 minutes.
Dr. Catalano was thorough, genuinely concerned with my issue, and generally a very pleasant professional. One of the best doctors I have seen so far in this city.
Very informative, and gets to the point!
Dr Catalano was very professional, attentive, nice and caring, answered all my questions thoroughly, very smart highly recommend
Dr. Catalano is the best. I highly recommend her.
She was extremely attentive, caring and friendly. I very highly recommend Dr. Catalano.
Dr. Catalano is extremely professional, knowledgeable and comforting. She took considerable time to explain everything to me (including a little anatomy lesson!) and acted as if I was her only patient that day. I didn't feel rushed or hurried at all. And the office and exam rooms all seem brand new and well-kept. The front desk staff are courteous and efficient.
Dr. Catalano is great!
Doctor Catalano explained my foot condition and everything she did in great detail. She was very gently and thorough when cutting out my corns and took a lot of time with me. I felt well taken care of and got answers to all my questions.
She communicated very well, much better than some other doctors I have seen.
Super professional and absolutely amazing. She assessed my situation and told me how to treat it immediately. I'm going back for my procedure on Friday and know that I'm in great hands.
I went with a sprained ankle and she was very thorough; however she does tend to use very technical terms when explaining what is going on, but she is happy to explain if you ask her questions about what she is saying. I went to her b/c her location and availability were convenient, but I think she is also a good doctor having seen her. I have a follow-up next week and I feel as if I am in good hands.
She's the best doctor I've seen in my life!
She was very thorough.
Very professional, went above and beyond to get me the best and most convenient care possible.
Jasmine is great! She is very attentive and took the time to explain everything. Beth Israel Medical Center takes a long time to check in patients, though - I have to fill out the same 6 pages of forms every time, even though all the information is in the system.
She listened and spent time with me to diagnose the problem properly. I really appreciated the information she shared with me and the time she took to explain things.
Recommended her already to another friend. Found her quite knowledgeable.
Dr. Catalano was awesome in every way. Could not recommend her more!
