Practices medicine like the good old Doctors do. He actually spends time with you and genuinely cares. Gave me as much time as I needed to ask questions. I was waiting for results from a scan and Dr. Katz was collaborating with another physician which delayed the process of getting back to me. He couldn't have been more apologetic for getting back to me so late. Not holding it against him!

There are not enough stars to rate Dr. Katz. He is an incredibly caring and patient physician in addition to being very qualified. I was initially required to complete a very detailed questionnaire. He spent at least 30 minutes with me and went over each and every question. I was initially nervous about my symptoms but he put me at ease. Lastly, his staff couldn't be nicer.
