Patient Comments (14)

He is not a good listener at all. Can hardly get a word in with all his not very funny jokes. You talk to his nurse way more than you’ll ever talk to him. Frustrated.

Would definitely recommend this doctor to others! I had sinus problems for years and Dr. Katz was finally able to discover the root of the problem. He fixed my sinuses with a balloon sinuplasty and I have never felt better!

He was quick to recommend surgery, quick to cut, quick to leave the exam room, and the problem returned really quick. His nurse spent more time with me than he did.
