This is the worst experience I've ever had with any doctor IN MY LIFE. The first visit I came to my scheduled appointment at 4:00, and I was told the doctor was late. There was a room full of patients, to the point where there was no seating available, so I decided to reschedule for the following week. I came to my second scheduled appointment. I was told the dr. Wasn't coming in, 3rd reschedule again dr was late so I went to another dr. Horrible horrible experiences!!

All of the other reviews are true don't go to this guy even for the first Time Long story short I took my son out of school drove 30 minutes to get there waited for an hour and a half my son was sitting on the examining table he was next and the nurse came in and said sorry he left the room full of like 25 patients outside and told everyone to reschedule I would never go back to that guy ever his time is more important than everybody else's how dare he treat every way

i am ANGRY! My daughter's hair has been falling out and my stress level was already sky high, it was 100° outside and the building and office weren't air conditioned and felt like a sauna, the office capacity said maximum 20 but had 40 PEOPLE IN IT, and after waiting an hour and a half with my toddler son and daughter we were all told to go home since its closing time. WAIT WHAT?!?! THIS A JOKE RIGHT?!? I swear public clinics are amazing next to this joke! first and LAST time!!!!!

The worst experience ever! Dirty office , rude stuff , wait time over an hour! Yes you heard me right ! Over an hour! No spot to fill out the paperwork . Never come back here again!!!! If I could give a minus star I would !

I wish they had lower than a star for this doctor. My mom had an appointment on a Thursday, she took the day off from her job to attend 'this appointment. He had left and nobody bothered to call to cancel. Appointment rescheduled for the following day, the office staff informed that the doctor has left. She lost another day of work. This is no way to treat patients.

Waited in an overcrowded waiting room with my 92-year-old father in a wheelchair and then the receptionist announced, The Doctor has left for the day and is not coming back.
Wayne, NJ |
Very disappointed had an appointment for my son when we arrived we were told the doctor was in and they never bothered to call us in advance to cancel the staff was very unprofessional didn't even apologize will never refer anyone there

What a load! 20 people in the waiting room and the Dr isn't even here! Nurses have no idea what to do!
in Fair Lawn, NJ |
Everyone was given the same appt. time, therefore the wait was over an hour. Dr. Katz had somewhere else to go, did not have time to listen to me, (I went for my psoriasis), or look at the skin condition, just told the nurse to write a prescription and left. The medication prescribed did not work at all.
