Dr. Katz's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Katz "Graduated from Sackler School of Medicine Magna Cum Laude in 1976. After 4 years of military service as a physician in the Israeli Navy Special Forces, took his initial training in neurology in Israel, following which he served as the Commanding Officer of the Israeli Navy Hyperbaric and Medical Institute (INHMI). In 1987 he came to the US for a fellowship in Epilepsy, Sleep Disorders and Clinical Neurophysiology at the Cleveland Clinic. He continued his fellowship in Epilepsy at Yale, where he stayed as an Associate Research Scientist until 1993, when he started the Epilepsy Center at Norwalk Hospital, Norwalk, CT. He stayed as a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Department of Neurology, Yale University School of Medicine, for the following 20 years. Dr. Katz received several prestigious Fellowship Awards by the American Epilepsy Society (Merritt Putnam Fellowship), the American EEG Society (Hans Berger Fellowship) and the William Gowers Fellowship by Abbott Laboratories. He received numerous other scientific, teaching and service awards including the Life Saving Award of the Milford Chief of Police in 1997 (Milford, CT). In his 10 years at Norwalk Hospital Dr. Katz served as the director of the Epilepsy Center, Director of Diving Medicine and the co-director of the Sleep Disorder Center. He also served as the Board Member and director of the Medical Advisory Committee of the American Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut. In 2002 Dr. Katz started a solo practice where he focuses on the treatment of the neurological complications of Lyme disease and neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative conditions associated with Lyme disease. In the past 20 years Dr. Katz conducted several clinical research studies including an IRB approved study on the treatment of Alzheimer's Didease with Intrathecal Immunoglobulins, which is still ongoing. Other IRB approved studies he conducted are related to the FDA approved medical device he invented and developed, FlowKeepers, that is about to be released in late fall 2017.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Katz "1. Patients with complex health conditions need time to be heard. The standard time for a specialist is 45 minutes for an initial visit and 15 minutes for a follow up. Many of the patients I see come after visiting with dozens of physicians for several years. In 45 minutes they cannot cover the extent of their medical history. Nor will 15 minutes start addressing their ongoing condition on a follow up visit.

2. The doctor is the health advocate of his patient. The patient shouldn't feel that his doctor is confrontational or "doesn't believe" in the validity of his/her symptoms.

3. Any child, adolescent, or adult who develop abrupt changes in behavior, academic achievements, cognitive abilities, or physical condition should have a comprehensive medical and neurological work up, that in a Lyme endemic areas will include testing for tick borne diseases."

Patient Comments (3)
in Lake Placid, FL |
Dr. Katz is the most brilliant, competent, compassionate and honorable I have had the good fortune to be my doctor. He always goes above and beyond in seeking answers and treatment modalities for his patients.
in Lisbon, CT |
Brilliant doctor, compassionate person, Always has an answer always inspires hope, that is why we refer to him as Doctor Hope. We would leave other doctors offices (and there were many) with no answers, depressed and hopeless. Not Dr. Katz, no wonder that people travel from around the country and the world to be in his care. He spends as much time as needed with you, his staff is friendly and helpful and he even has his adorable little dogs in the office, how great is that! Highly recommend.
in Clearwater, FL |
There is no other doctor I have ever met in my lifetime who is more caring or more knowledgable. Dr. Katz is hands down the best doctor I have ever had in my life, and he literally saved my life by diagnosing me when others could not. I have recommended him to numerous friends, family and acquaintances.
