Dr. Katz and DDC colleagues Denise, Virginia, Carlos and Ron expertly performed colonoscopy and endoscopy on Friday April 16 These procedures went very smoothly, a credit to the skill of DDC staff. I appreciate the many courtesies shown to me during this event. I especially appreciate receiving thorough written reports when departing the facility, and also the thorough follow-up telephone call from DDC office manager Babs to review these reports with me on Monday April 19. Endoscopy revealed the cause of occasional difficulties to swallow; I'm looking forward to further discussions people about how to remedy that problem.

Dr Katz was very nice. Was concerned with our problem. Gave good advice and medications, but did not suggest procedures that he thought were not necessary for an 86 year old person. We like him a lot. Would recommend him to friends

My primary care physician referred me to Dr.Katz and after my first visit it was determined that I needed to have my first colonoscopy. He explained the process and what to expect and we scheduled the procedure 2 weeks later. After the procedure he confirmed irritation (biopsy came back as UC) and let me know he didn’t see signs of cancer. So grateful for being able to understand and work on controlling my condition. Highly recommended Dr. Katz and the practice.
