Frequently Asked Questions:
What are your office hours? 8:30-5 Monday through Friday. On Wednesday, the office is open but I do not schedule appointments.
DO YOU DO PHONE CONSULTS? Not at this point.
I read your book and have a question, can I call and ask? Dr Cate runs a full-time office based practice and is unable to accomodate questions about her books. Many questions are already answered on this web site. Please search through and feel free to post your question about the book as a comment so that another reader may be able to answer.
What ages do you treat? At my current Napa Valley I see children and adults from age 6 and up. I would see all ages but am unable to stock the routine vaccinations and would have to refer patients to an outside pharmacy, for example Safeway’s pharmacy (on Trancas).
Will I see patients in the hospital? I work hard to keep you out of the hospital, but if you need to be admitted you will be well taken care of by Queen of the Valley’s excellent hospitalists. I often visit my patients during their hospital stays to provide additional continuity of care.
What happens after hours? If you have an emergency, please call 911. If you have an urgent medical question, the answering service will put you through to the physician on call. If you need medication refills, please wait until the next business day.
Where can I find a doctor who won’t put healthy people on statins? This is getting easier to do, as more and more physicians are learning the truth about pay for performance and what really causes heart attacks.
