Dr Katz is a fantastic doctor. For my crohns We had to switch to a more aggressive medicine therapy and I had come with handful of questions in my notebook. He took the time to talk me through all the options explained everything in full and answered all my questions. I was never once rushed, and he does a great job making me feel at ease. With a chronic condition dr. Katz has done a great job listening to my symptoms ordering appropriate tests and adjusting treatment as needed.

I went to Dr. Katz knowing something is wrong and he dismissed me. I continued to have problems so I tried another gastroenterologist who did a colonoscopy for me. Turns out I had pre-cancerous polyps and I was told it would have been full blown cancer in 6 months. Thank God I didn't listen to Dr. Katz and went for a second opinion.

Dr Katz has a positive attitude and an aggressive plan to find my diagnosis. Having switched from a doctor who essentially did nothing over four years, Dr. Katz was a breath of fresh air.
