I've been lucky enough to have Dr. Katz since I got R.A at age four. He is kind, caring, attentive and knowledgeable in the individualistic nature of this condition. Couldn't have had a better doctor

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!

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.
