My first time meeting Dr. Katz when I went to an appt with my best friend Donald Turner had with him my first impression of him was that he was a very understanding and caring Doctor one who put his patients needs first and takes time with them to listen and discuss any issues that they are having. He wasn't like the type of Doctor's that just run in the room with a chart and a prescription pad he showed compassion and concern. I would recommend Dr. Katz to anyone who desire his care.

I can not begin to say enough wonderful things about Dr.Katz and his staff. He embodies everything you want in a physician. He is brilliant, kind, compassionate and understanding. These are difficult to find in a doctor, especially when you are in so much pain and misery. I highly recommend him and his staff and he has an incredibly sweet nurse too. You can tell that they truly care!

I HAVE BEEN A PT WITH DR KATZ FOR MORE THAN 1 YEAR. I HAVE BEEN RECOVERING FROM A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY AND OTHER TRAUMATIC INJURIES. I RECOVERED FAR MORE THAN EXPECTED. DR KATZ AND SEVERAL OTHERS NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD RETURN TO WHERE I STAND TODAY, YET I HAVE AND HERE I AM. 3-29-2015 , I HAD A TRAUMATIC CRASH. I RECEIVED FRACTURE (S) AND BOTH LUNGS COLLAPSED DR KATZ HAS BEEN AN OUTSTANDING HAND IN MY RECOVERY AND I AM POSITIVELY OVERWHELMED BY THE RESULTS
