I ABSOLUTELY love Dr. Katz! He is very caring, kind & thorough. I have never had any issues at all with him or his staff. That means a lot when it comes to your physician! He's been mine for over 3 years & I've had much trouble in the past with other doctors. So I'd give him more than 5 stars if I could :)
Overland Park, KS |
I am referred to this Dr but his office is constantly closed they answer rarely and when i finally did get a hold of someone they told me they only make appointments on wednesdays and told me to call back tomorrow! I dont have a good feeling about this practice, unprofessional so far.
Overland Park, KS |
Very bad, have the lab results for a week, not have any phone call and left message, still not response
Kansas City, MO |
I am a new patient of Dr. Katz and although I feel he has been a good Dr. his office help and Nurses have the WORST customer service I have ever seen. I have called 6 times within a matter of 7 days in order to get my lab results and have a prescription. Filled for a specialty clinic with no results. I have even spoken to 2 separate people but alas they couldn't help of course. I would never recommend them
Olathe, KS |
I have had Dr. Katz for many years. He is a very caring dr. However he did recently miss the fact that I had a badly degenerated hip and needed a hip replacement. Also his new nurse seems incompetent and not returning messages and assisting getting prescriptions refilled in a timely matter. Also the chairs in the office are very uncomfortable especially for patients with arthritis!
Kansas City, MO |
He is very insensitive
Leawood, KS |
Dr. Katz himself isn't bad, he just needs to learn to listen to his patients more thoroughly instead of rushing through the appt. His office staff is horrible, rude, and lacking knowledge or patient care. Since Mrs. Mary, his nurse left, the nurses he has now are awful, rude, and should be ashamed at how they treat patient's. I've been with Dr. Katz for a long time, but because of his awful, unprofessional staff I am seriously considering looking for a new doctor.
in Overland Park, KS |
Very knowledge. Varied attention. Increased meds after I reported side effects. Horrible office staff, I can almost guarantee they will lose your first referral. Nurse is VERY inadequate.
in Kansas City, KS |
I have had severe RA for 35 years. I have had very horrible side effects to arthritis meds. Every Rheumatologist I've been to has ignored that history & immediately has wanted to blast me with the most dangerous drugs available. Dr. Katz has been very careful. Often doctors misdiagnose illnesses as RA. It nearly cost me my life when I had severe pneumonia. Others diagnosed as "Rheumatoid lung." I was frantic as I knew I was in trouble. Dr Katz took the time to properly diagnose.Very wise doctor!
in Kansas City, MO |
I felt like Dr Katz just wanted to pump a bunch of meds at me. Not happy.
in Olathe, KS |
As a doctor, he missed a major, very important problem. In addition, he repeatedly made me wait more than 30 minutes to be seen on two occasions and 45 minutes on one. I have since left for a new doctor.
in Overland Park, KS |
Dr Katz has been wonderful. He's the first of many doctors that has finally figured out what is wrong with me and now can treat me. He listens very well and takes my case seriously.
in Overland Park, KS |
I respect Dr. Katz because he listens and communicates very well. He explains things completely and really cares about his patients.
in Orrick, Mo. |
Dr. Katz is a wonderful Doctor. I would recommend him to anyone.
