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.

If I could give zero I would. I went to see Dr. Katz for a clogged ear which turned out to be an accumulation of ear wax, no other complaints. By the end of the visit I Was TOLD I had a deviated septum and of the many problems it would cause me. I was prescribed medicine and told that I didn't need to take it, but to make sure I filled it because Insurance would justify that I would then need a Cat scan before eventual surgery. Bottom line, his business and making $ are his primary concern.

Since moving, I've change every doctor except, Dr. Katz. I will travel to his office. He is patient and speaks to you like a person and at you...not while looking down at a chart. All of my asthma, allergy relief has come from him and most recently, my hearing aids. I rapidly lost my hearing and he gave me options of treatment without cramming an expensive hearing aid at me. Although that is what I ultimately needed, but not without trying other alternatives. I will never change this doctor

My nose was blocked for years. I went to many different doctors for different opinions until I found Dr. Katz. He tried me on many different medications with little relief and decided that I was a candidate for balloon sinuplasty. It was an outpatient procedure and I was breathing better within days. I cannot thank Dr. Katz enough.

Surprised by positive reviews. My experience was horrible. I put my trust, and my personal health, in the care of this specialist... For each of my 2 visits, I waited for an hour, listening to the staff's personal jibber-jabber. Spent a total of (maybe) 15 minutes for both visits - combined. Never felt like he listened to my concerns, but spent his time talking AT me instead. I will not return.

went in because i couldn't hear out of my left ear-felt like water was stuck in there. the nurse cleaned out my ear and got a bunch of junk out of it and now i can hear again. the staff is very nice, and the doctor made me feel comfortable and was joking with me- actually took the time to speak with me-i would recommend dr. katz to others.

My wife has been yelling at me for years because she wanted me to get hearing aides. I finally went to Dr. Katz and was evaluated for hearing aides and I now can hear very well. Thank you doctor!

I was having trouble swallowing and food getting stuck in my throat and ive seen 2 doctors prior to seeing Dr. katz which did not know what my diagnosis was- I was being treated with acid meds which I did not have acid but the doctors did not want to believe me- I went to see Dr. katz and he ordered thyroid testing come to find out I had an issue with my thyroid. After all the treatment I was receiving from other doctors which was useless now I no my issue. I would recommend him to anyone

I'm really glad other people had a good experience with Dr. Katz. Mine was exceptionally bad. He spent about one minute with me, didn't listen to me, pushed allergy shots when I wasn't sure I wanted them, and spoke to me in such an unnecessarily demeaning way.
