Dr. Katz is extremely skilled in gastro related surgery. He performs numerous surgeries on daily basis. He is God sent. He saved my life. Highly recommend.

Dr. Katz has an amazing bedside manner. I have never had surgery before and had been dealing with my problem for more than half a year. I am almost in full recovery. I had had an awful experience with a doctor before him, so I was nervous but he got rid of all my fears. He is very professional. I would recommend him for anyone! Also, his staff is great and dealt with my NUMEROUS terrified phone calls!! They are saints!

Dr Katz was so caring and thoughtful. He answered all my questions and explained in simple terms about my surgery, including the pros and cons. On the morning of my surgery, any doubts I had, disappeared when he said a prayer with me! I knew in that moment that everything would be fine and God was guiding him every step! I was in hospital for 7 days, been 5 weeks since surgery. I feel better then I've felt this past year. I truly believe Dr Katz saved my life!! He's a wonderful doctor!
