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.

“Felt that I got the best possible treatment and owe my life to the Doctor and Staff! I might not be alive if Doctor didn’t listen and insist I go to the Hospital and follow his diagnosis and recommended treatment! Very caring and concerned!” Thank you Dr Katz.
