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.
