Patient Comments (3)
Dr. Katz is a thorough doctor ordering blood work panels for his patients, but lacks a bedside manner. A doctor should never tell a patient that he/she is getting old. Very rude and unprofessional at the same time. Unhappy patient!
in West Hills, CA |
Dr. Katz has been our primary care doctor for many years and I am so appreciative of his attention to our family needs. He is always honest and thorough in his efforts to keep my wife and I healthy. I am so glad that we found him by accident in the 1980s.
