Patient Comments (3)
in Newark, NJ |
The reviews are pretty spot on. Dr. Katz asked what I was in for and did not even look at me or my symptoms (literally) before prescribing a shot, some medication, and telling me to buy his product! HE DID NOT TAKE A SECOND TO LOOK AT ME! I was in complete shock! To top it off, he did not tell me what he was injecting me with (I had to stop him and ask), he did not tell me the medication he prescribed nor did he tell me how to use it. Worst visit. I will never be returning.

Able to receive an immediate appointment if it is an emergency. Always diagnoses properly the first time.
