What People Say About Dr. Rachel Katz, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Katz is an incredibly competent, responsive, and hardworking doctor who cares about her patients as individuals. Dr. Katz partners with you. She has no “agenda” other than making sure that you’re as healthy and happy as you can be. She listens to what you have to say and respects your opinion. She is never condescending but always willing to offer insightful and invaluable medical advice in a way that it can be received appropriately by the patient. I don't know what I would do without her. I was in really bad shape after my thyroidectomy, and after seeing other doctors who simply repeated the phrase “your numbers are in the normal range,” I was lucky to find a different kind of doctor in Dr Katz. If you are looking for someone who combines the best of traditional medicine and personalized integrative medicine, you can’t find a better doctor than Dr. Katz. Oh, and to top it off, her office staff are the best I’ve ever seen, truly outstanding!

Dr. Katz continues Dr. Kenneth Blanchard's thyroid replacement methods brilliantly. She is thorough, a good listener, warm-hearted, and really knows her stuff. I highly recommend her!

I highly recommend Dr. Katz for thyroid issues. I know she is amazing on a whole number of health-related issues; but, my main issue is Hashimoto's Disease. Since being in her care I have regained the energy I had when younger and just starting on thyroid medication. She is warm, caring, and wants to get it right. Highest accolades to Dr. Katz and if you are thinking about seeing her--do it.

To say that she’s been life-changing may sound like hyperbole, but if you’ve been suffering with thyroid issues and/or working with physicians who treat symptoms “by the book”, you’ll understand the sentiment. Dr Katz is not only an amazing physician but also a considerate human being, who makes it a point to truly listen to you. My appointments with her - whether in-person at the office, or via phone - have always been constructive, and never rushed, regardless of how busy she is.

I am so grateful that Dr. Katz stepped in and took over when Dr. Kenneth Blanchard died. His patients were all wondering where they could get the sort of excellent care he gave them. Thank heaven that Dr. Katz had already begun to study his methods for treating thyroid problems. In addition, she brings her own expertise to the equation. She's smart, empathic, and she LISTENS! Really the best.

Dr. Katz is terrific. She has great expertise in conventional family medicine, functional medicine, and hypothyroidism (she's the only the doctor trained in depth by the late hypothyroidism pioneer Dr. Kenneth Blanchard). Dr. Katz also has deep interests in nutrition, medical hypnosis, addiction medicine, and psychotherapy. She is warm, caring, and non-judgmental. With a highly unusual breadth of expertise, she's a holistic doc in the best sense. We feel very lucky to have her on our side.
