Dr. Katz provided outstanding care for my 89 year old father. In an emergency situation, his diagnosis was completely accurate and his treatment was very effective. He was very accessible and always very helpful.

Dr. Katz is a true professional. I trust him and his knowledge beyond any other GI Dr. I have encountered. He is friendly, outgoing, and very concerned. The office is a little busy, and sometimes communications is lacking but Dr. Katz is well worth these little inconveniences.
