Dr. Katz is a terrific Doctor. Very knowledgeable and caring. Thanks to him I am fully recovered from a stroke last June. He has also been very helpful in referring me to other excellent Doctors who have also been pivotal in my recovery.

can never get in touch with the office. office staff rude, phone rings and rings they finally answer put you on hold for over a half hour. Dr. has no bed side manner what so ever makes you wait over a hour to be seen. I do not recommend this Dr. at all.

I have been dealing with Dr. Katz for a couple of years now and to be honest I am very impressed with him. He listens to the issues and does not make me feel like he is rushing me out the door. Because of that and his determination we have made great strides in my treatment. I would very much recommend him.

This is by far the worst experience I have ever had with any of my doctors. I have had multiple appointments here and I have always been early. However I usually have to wait at least 45 minutes before I am seen if not longer. Finally Dr. Katz will only see me for about 5 minutes before he sends me out of his office without hearing about any concerns that I have about my medication or future. I would highly recommend finding a different doctor to go to.

First doctor who sat down and spoke to me rather than typing on a computer. Very smart, helped a lot.
in Pompton Lakes, NJ |
Best doctor I have seen in a while. Truly cares about his patients and their concerns.
in Secaucus nj |
A good doctor is always appreciated but a rude neglectful incompetent office staff is not. Starting with a nessage machine that is structured so the office never has to answer the phone to incompetence in filling out paperwork correctly to avoid prolonged compounded issues with insurance companies only to hear never ending babble in defense of the staff when something is said about their service or poor rude confrontational attitudes!! A good doctor can always be found.
