Dr. Katz was very thorough, but pushy about Flu Shots and using him for OB/Gyn services. The staff was very unprofessional.

Dr Katz is ok. His receptionist Donna is the most rude, unprofessional doctors staff member I have encountered. Four people in my family have left his practice because of her, the fifth just didn’t care for the doctor and left. A sixth family member is seeking another physician. An employee at my pharmacy complained to me about her attitude when she was gathering information on my meds and suggested I speak to the Dr. about her. She needs to go. Trying to get a script refilled is a nightmare

Dr Katz seems like he cares about his patients but only when they're doing exactly what he says. He prescribes too many medications and if you don't want to take them he will manipulate you.The office staff horrible and unproffesional. Linda is the office manager and his wife and she is crazy, there was a time when she even felt the need to discuss with me that one of the nurses calls out too much and that she was going to fire them. She obviously only cares about money and not at about patients

The staff is very friendly and I am very happy I switched to this office. I would recommend the doctor to anyone that is in the market for a new Primary Care Physician.

Dr Katz and his staff have always been thoroughly professional in their interactions with me. I was surprised at how much time he spent answering my questions and found the overall experience to be very positive. Not only would I recommend Dr. Katz, but I have done so several times.

Dr. Katz is great his office staff however could use improvement. His office manager Linda is very very rude. He is a good doctor but she makes the experience with him not even worth it. She is argumentative over the simplest things.

Dr katz is great at what he does. But his wife Linda is batshit crazy. Completely unprofessional in the administration part of his office. It's a shame because the doctor is really good but the administration side of things run by her is horrible.
