Dr Catz perform surgery on my 12 year old daughter today. Everything went perfect. I am so pleased with Dr Catz and his office. They are very polite and great in giving communication. Dr Catz is the best and certainly worth traveling from out of town to see him.

Complained about my insurance slow to pay then told me to go elsewhere. I have not been treated for my throat pain. Poor service from my experience with him and I felt betrayed.
