I did my own research when looking for a gastroenterologist and I am so glad the reviews I found about Dr. Katz were 100% right. He was wonderful. He is patient and calm. Spoke to me in terms that I could understand. Explained everything thoroughly. My procedures were done at the hospital in Dobbs Ferry. Everything was so clean and well organized. They were waiting for me as if I was the most important person of the day. I cannot say enough about how well my experience was.

Great doctor! Even though he is very busy, he is never rushed. He gives plenty of time to answer questions and allay any concerns. Endoscopy/colonoscopy procedure at St. Johns is painless and worry-free (I gag even if I just see a tongue depressor). If you have gastroenterology problems see Dr. Katz!

Dr. Katz is easy to talk with, thorough and compassionate. He puts his patients at ease and is highly competent. A colonoscopy isn't my favorite thing to have done, but I'm glad he's the one doing it. (My dermatologist is one of his patients.)
in Dobbs Ferry, NY |
The office staff was friendly and professional. Dr. Katz very professional and reassuring. Explained everything very clearly. Great bedside manner.
