Patient Reviews

“I’ve been seeing Clare for more than 20 years now. She is genuine, kind , compassionate & caring. She always gives you her undivided attention during every visit. I know she has a lot of patients…but manages to make you feel like you’re the only one. She’s knowledgeable and passionate about her work, and I know she loves what she does and it shows.”

– Josie Hellman

“I’ve been seeing Clare Cattarin as my primary healthcare provider for over ten years and I hope she never retires!  She is the most thorough, curious, determined and compassionate healer I’ve encountered.  While she of course treats any symptoms I might have, she always works to figure out the underlying cause so we can address it holistically together.  She is constantly attending new courses and reviewing the literature to expand her already considerable expertise to help her patients.  And – amazingly — whenever Clare sits down with me, it feels like she has all the time in the world to listen, explain and find the best way forward.  She’s a gem!”

– Kate Dyer

“My experience working with Clare Cattarin has been absolutely wonderful. I worked with Clare virtually over the past pandemic year; my first appointment with her was on May 20, 2020 and my last was exactly one year to the day on May 19, 2021. Clare is smart and wise (those are not the same), perceptive, warm, and caring, and she draws on her many years of medical experience. She’s a delight to work with. She is constantly studying, learning, and updating her education and knowledge, something which I greatly appreciate and admire. She responded quickly to me every time I needed to reach her, and always with so much attention to details. I recommending Clare to a friend, I said, “This is the best medical experience I’ve ever had.” I had terrific health results — which I’m thrilled about — and it was a joy to work with Clare”
