Dr. Katz treated my roseca with a series of lazer treatments. I saw noticeable improvement, and have a less ruddy face.
in Weehawken, NJ |
Dr. Catz is the best around, what a talented miracle worker of a Dermatologist, and might I add, an extremely attentive, kind, and humble guy! His staff is incredibly knowledgable and answered all of my dozens of questions for routine home facial care. In only 6 sessions of the refractional laser with the Madonna eye lift, my droppy eyes brows and sagging eye lids are gone and already look better than when I was 21! Thank God for this miracle doctor and procedure! LOVE LOVE LOVE ya'll, Juva!

Dr katz and his associates are by far the best physicians in their field of medicine. Their office is always welcoming and friendly. My family and I have been their patients for many years. Whether u go to their queens office or to their office in manhattan you will always get good services

I went because of the reviews. I have a parent who had skin cancer. First they tried to give me another doctor rather than Katz. Katz only took seconds to scan my body and chose 2 arbitrary spots to test. A frontdesk staffer called me with the results and stated I have "pre-cancer". Not even the professional courtesy for the doctor to call me himself with a diagnosis of "pre-cancer". Immediately they wanted to do surgery. I declined on advice of my doctor who said "pre-cancer" is not legitimate

I love coming to see dr Katz. I always feel amazing when I leave.  I'm never nervous to get anything done. I trust him totally! There are great products and procedures available on the market; but they need to be administered by someone as skilled as Dr. Katz.  Dr Katz is smart, kind and patient.  And the young ladies at the front desk are so sweet.  And Sage gives amazing facials!
