Very pleasant staff. Thorough exam by doctor. Have a relative with a rare retinal disease that I was concerned I might have. Dr. Katz's knowledge about the disease was extensive. Very impressed

I have been a patient of Dr. Katz's for over 10 years. I love his office - the staff are always so friendly. He has told me for years that I had cataracts, and every year I asked him if I needed surgery as all my friends seem to have had it. He always told me they were not ready. Finally this year I noticed difficulty driving at night and he took them out. He made the procedure seem like a piece of cake. And what a difference. I see great! Highly recommend him!

I have been seeing Dr. Katz for over 10 years. He did my cataract surgery, and I see great. He is also treating my glaucoma - has been stable for years. He is extremely nice and attentive, as are his staff. Could not recommend him more highly

Dr. Katz has been treating my glaucoma for over ten years. I was originally referred from my optometrist when I noticed I could not see to the side out of my right eye. Dr. Katz has successfully treated my glaucoma over the last decade and has prevented any further visual loss. I could not recommend him more highly. He's the best!

I had cataract surgery in my right eye done at the university - was poorly done, had complications and ended up with poor vision. I was very scared to get my left eye done, but it got to the point where I could not drive anymore, so I went to see Dr. Katz. He put me at ease, explained exactly what was going to be done, and the surgery went great. I can now see again (at least out of the eye that Dr. Katz did). I am so happy with him.

This was my first visit to Dr. Katz. I was a little put off by the long long for checkin until I realized that all of the patients there were not just for Dr. Katz. After check in, I was called back quickly. The nurse was extremely nice, and Dr. Katz did a thorough exam, realized I had had lasik surgery even though I forgot to tell them (as it was done about 20 years ago). Very happy with my visit.

Came in just for a routine yearly exam. Staff could not have been friendlier. Minimal wait to see the Dr. Eye exam was thorough. Got new prescription for glasses which work great. Dr. Katz found a small freckle in the back of the eye that he recommended yearly observation. Great office

I had been followed for over 20 years at U of M with glaucoma. My glaucoma was progressing, and I eventually underwent surgery at U of M, although it was not effective as my pressure remained in the high 20's despite surgery. A physician friend suggested that I see Dr. Katz, who I did. He performed surgery which was very successful, and my pressure has been around 12 ever since. Highly recommended!

He is a very friendly and talented physician. He did cataract surgery on both of my eyes - I was extremely nervous, but he walked me through the whole thing. I could not be more pleased with the surgery itself as well as the results. I can see so well now. I had no idea how bad my vision had really gotten. I highly recommend him.
