Dr. Katz is humble, compassionate, and very adept in his area of expertise. His associates..Denise,Natacha, Justin, DJ and Terrin, made the experience of having a colonoscopy and gastroduodenal endoscopy as pleasant as it could possibly be. The Palm Endoscopy facility is clean, state of the art, and so much better than going to a hospital. I always know that Dr. Katz is going to provide top notch care delivered with compassion and a great team!
