"You won't die before 3pm," said the office manager to a patient in distress. "The doctor is running behind so don't take too much time," was said to me after waiting an hour to see him. When I did see him he reviewed labs that were done almost 8 weeks ago rather than the ones from last week. After that it was round 5 of "Follow up with me in 3 weeks." Why? I am so disappointed and have wasted a ton of time and money.

If you are ever referred to this office, run the other way! The office staff is absolutely unhelpful and Dr. Katz is completely inept at sending prescription refills to online pharmacies. We have never been seen on time even when we are the first appointment of the day. The doctor spends more time looking at his computer than examining the patient. More time has been wasted waiting for him and then having to follow up with his office and the online pharmacy just to make sure my daughter can get her prescription refilled in a timely manner. Because of his incapability to refill her prescription (every time we go), my daughter has missed doses of her systemic drug. We have absolutely had it with his office. Going above and beyond isn’t in their vocabulary. Why don’t they seem to care about their patients? It’s mind boggling. But we’re DONE!

Dr. Katz was recommended by our family physician. Dr. Katz is excellent. He doesn’t rush you through your appointment even if you have to wait a little bit. He is willing to order tests to cover whatever the patient needs. Dr. Katz is very thorough. He is highly recommended by other doctors. My family thinks he is excellent.

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.
