Amazing and most down to earth doctor. Because of his concern of me being over weight and being so honest about it. I decided to do something about my weight. Presently I am down 15lbs and eager to continue my journey of getting healthy Thank god for Dr. Katz and his honesty.

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.

The other day the JFK system was down and although it could of been a nightmare the staff was very professional and constantly communicating any updates. I was so pleased and surprised, they even went around offering water and snacks!

I feel so fortunate to have found Dr. Katz. After my doctor of 10 yrs. retired I tried several other doctors and none measured up to the high standard of care I was accustomed to. Then I met Dr. Katz. If you are looking for high quality medical care this is the right doctor. I'm receiving in depth tests no other doctor thought to order to discover the source of my problem. I feel safe again finally finding a caring doctor. A patient/doctor/trust relationship is everything!

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.
