in Elberton, Ga |
I fell and broke my right wrist in Atlanta, Georgia visiting with my son. We called and Dr. Katz worked me on the following day. Surgery was scheduled for the next day. This happened in last of April 2017 and it has just been 3 months. I am doing wonderful. Dr. Katz and staff have been amazing. I would highly recommend him.
in Madison, GA |
I have been very satisfied with my treatment under Dr. Katz. His knowledge and expertise in Dupuytrens contracture is quite evident and, just as important, his courteous and caring attitude contribute strongly to making an otherwise unpleasant experience quite tolerable. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Katz to other patients, and if conditions dictate, I will most certainly use him again.
Hartwell, GA |
I really liked Dr Katz. He was polite and friendly and had a smile when he greeted you. He explained exactly what needed to be done, his recommendations and what I should expect from the surgery for carpel tunnel (Hands) and cubital (Elbows). He answered all my questions and concerns, even though sometimes they were repetitive. and was never seemed like he was in a hurry. Everyone I dealt with in the office was polite and courteous.

in Athens, GA |
Dr. Katz is very easy to talk to as well as very informative of all aspects and options of surgery. I was extremely pleased with Dr. Katz and would recommend him without reservation.
in Watkinsville |
Dr. Katz was easy to talk to. He gave me the option of a local in lieu of being completely knocked out. (A Local is the best) Dr. Katz followed up with me the Monday following my surgery. Best of all I have no numbness or tingling in my hand at all!!!!
in Colbert, GA |
I felt at ease the first visit. I had Carpal Tunnel and needed surgery. Dr. Katz explained I could be medicated and sleep or have him numb my hand. I really felt comfortable with him and went for it. I would recommend to people to have their hand number. I had no pain at all. I could have driven myself if I had to. I recommend Dr. Katz for any surgery.
in Good Hope, Ga |
Very personable! Personally followed up with a phone call! I was impressed with the hands on (no pun intended) treatment!
in Athens, GA |
Dr. Katz has a wonderful manner and answers all questions. He's always very reassuring about any concerns about a procedure. Very pleased and would highly recommend!
