Dr. Katz did a lymph node biopsy and placed a port for chemo. He often saw me at no extra charge to help me resolve lymph node biopsy site leakage. He even checked on me by phone on a Sunday!! Showed compassion & demonstrated expertise.

I was misdiagnosed and mistreated after surgery for 6 weeks and only to find out it was wrong diagnosed and unnecessary surgery. Suffer with lots of pain, time, and effort due to the office is a training facility for preMed students. Both radiologist and Dr Katz & Students misread the CT scan. Would not recommend this place to anyone

Dr. Katz was patronizing and treated me like I was unintelligent. He called a lump I had in the armpit/ breast area “unimpressive”. I was explaining my believes in why I don’t use a certain product and his response was “oh so you’re a scientist now”. He felt around and said he could see but could not feel the mass I have. A student doctor, who was shadowing him, could easily feel and see the mass. I will be going with a different doctor as the whole experience was unessisarly cold.

Dr. Katz is awesome. He spent a lot of time helping us understand the blood flow in the legs and help me understand that my issue was bigger than spider veins which is what I have going in to have treated. He explained what he was looking at and had suggestions that he provided. There was no pressure to do anything differently or to do anything else then. He really knows his stuff and I have made another appointment to go back. Great office staff also.

Dr. Katz is the best surgeon I have come across so far. First, his office is very clean and friendly, which I love. I am so comfortable when I am there. I know that I will be taken care of. The front desk staff is also amazing. Dr. Katz not only explains thoroughly my procedure, but my pre-op and post-op visits are so thorough and detailed and he makes sure that I am okay 100% of the time. He goes out of his way to give me the best treatment. I always recommend him to my family and friends.

The entire experience was great! Parking was easy and very convenient to Dr. Katz's office. His office staff was very friendly and helpful. I really liked Dr. Katz. He was very personable and explained exactly what he was doing and why he was doing it. He was very good and very efficient. So far, it looks like I'll get the results I was looking for and I will definitely go back for more treatments!

Great experience at Dekalb Vein Center with Dr. Katz! The staff was very warm and attentive! I had vein ablation done on both legs and am feeling little to no pain in either of my legs. Prior to the procedure, both of my legs would swell and hurt all the time and now I'm looking forward to great looking legs and being able to get back to the gym again.

Dr. Katz is an outstanding physician. He helped me with two painful spider veins. Within a few hours, I was up on my feet again, and a weeks days later, I'm not seeing any scars around the injected region.
