Patient Comments (1)
in San Diego, CA |
I have been to his office 4-5 times over the last 4 years. I find Dr. Katzman reasonably personable, professional, and well organized. There are quite a few doctors, techs, and non tech staff working there. He examined me thoroughly and detected cataracts in both eyes, plus macular degeneration that will make me blind at some unpredictable time in the future. Added a retina specialist. He and his staff can handle just about any vision related issue. I'm very particular. I like Dr. Katzman.
