Very caring to has patients and excellent bedside manners. I just love him.

Dr. Katz was one of the most caring doctors I had to deal with in my diagnosis of a colorectal mass. He tells you like it is, but you can definitely tell that he does care about his patients' well being. I put my life in his hands and trusted him and would do the same with any member of my family.

This was my first visit to Dr. Katz. I found his office and his staff to be both personable and efficient. My concern was a cyst I had and as I was going on a cruise, I wanted to get the issue resolved. Dr. Katz examined me, put my mind at ease, talked with me, and assured me I could go on with my plans. I followed his instructions, and went on my cruise without any difficulty. I would definitely recommend Dr. Katz to anyone.

Josh is the man! He cut out my cancer, explained everything and was accurate about recovery time. He's a lifesaver and a gifted cutter. I'm so lucky to have him in my area.

in Cordova, TN |
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!
