Office is terrible. Had an emergency to see him and they said I would have to wait 6 weeks. That was his next appointment!!!! Then I needed a refill on my medicine and the pharmacy kept faxing them for authorization and no answer on that either. This kind of office I don’t need. Never felt comfortable going there either with the doctor. I would not recommend this office at all.

Lake Worth, FL – Mar 30, 2019
Dr. Katz is one of the best doctors I have dealt with in my lifetime. So the reason I'm saying this is because he has a great bedside manner, he seems to get to the questions that he knows you're going to forget to ask. So when you leave him you feel like you know what's going on. very important. The staff also need to make mention of the staff who also make you feel when you leave you know what's going on.
