Doesn't even touch you, god forbid he actual puts his hands on you or the area he operated on to see how its healing !! Doesn't even have enough compassion to ask how your feeling. The office staff is rude to you, because he will yell at them for not getting things right for him. Nurse types notes and he stands outside the door and reads them instead of just asking you himself. He is more concerned about his football crap in office and display of bones then the actual patients. Very Brash

This surgeon knows his stuff and his outcomes prove it. I was involved in motor vehicle accident with several broken bones and needed emergency surgery on my leg. He put a rod in my leg and made it possible for me to walk again. I was so lucky to get Dr. Katz as the on call Orthopedic surgeon. I'm now 4 months out and can say this doctor took great care of me along with his outstanding staff. I made full recovery and I'm so grateful.... Can't say Thank you enough!!!!!!
in Hudson |
Definitely, the BEST. I highly recommend him to everyone! I had a total knee on one side years ago by another Orthopedic with horrible outcome and swore I would NEVER do my other knee. Dr. Katz changed my mind and now I'm 6mnths out from my total knee replacement. THANK YOU Dr. Katz you are a gifted surgeon. God Bless you and your office staff who were terrific during my care.

Had shoulder surgery with Dr Katz had an amazing outcome,besides the surgeon being outstanding so is the office staff. I had a wonderful experience with this office and my surgery was a success, who could ask for more. Highly recommend Dr Katz.
in Spring Hill, FL |
I would recommend Dr. Katz without any doubts. He fixed my first surgery done from another doctor. And relieved my pain 100%. I'm so satisfied with him, I refuse to go anywhere else. He has totally earned my trust, and I can't ask for a more better doctor than Dr. Katz. So if you're looking for an outstanding orthopedic doctor, just make your appointment with Dr. Katz

New patient to the office was very pleased with the staff here and the overall appointment. Appointment wait was minimal, the girl at the check out window went above and beyond to get my wife taken care of, she was very caring and sweet. Clean office, friendly staff highly recommend
in Spring Hill, FL |
Dr. Katz was attentive, listened and answered every question about my knee and medical options. His care and the care of his staff after surgery was personal and caring. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends for any orthopedic surgery as well as return if I needed any additional surgeries.

He was recommended by family members in the medical field who have worked with him. He is THE best!

He has an excellent reputation as a surgeon as I found out from many of his patients. While working as a sales associate, I met many people who recommended him.....- he did a knee replacement for me and while I was being admitted, a few of the hospital employees said what a wonderful doctor he was, and some of them had family members where he done surgery for them and they had total faith in him. One of the comments was "hardly any of his patients ever have to be re-admitted due to infection"..
in Spring Hill, Fl |
Dr. Katz is very professional, made me very comfortable regarding the surgical procedure I had. There were no surprises after the surgery and knew I could reach out to him afterwards if needed. He's very approachable and direct. Office staff are professional and work as a team.
I had 6 previous knee surgeries and had been with Dr Katz for years. I knew that I could barely walk and was in constant pain. My next step was to a cane, still in pain. 5 years later after having both my knees replaced (bilateral knee replacement) I walk 1.5 miles daily and ride my bike 4 days a week. I walk effortlessly and without pain. I thank Dr Katz regularly for what he did for me.

Dr. Katz treated me for a broken shoulder. It happened over a holiday weekend and I was able to see him immediately after the holiday. He is very professional with a great "bedside manner." Thanks to Dr. Katz, I am on the road to recovery. Also, his office staff are very accommodating and friendly. He also operated on my husband's shoulder several years ago with great results. I would definitely recommend him.
in New Port Richey, FL |
I seen Dr. Katz for first time and I felt completely at ease and understood everything . He was excellent as a ortho doctor. I have heard many good things about him and so far I am satisfied. I would send my husband to him as well for his shoulder issue to.

Dr. Katz and his staff are very professional and friendly. I had hip replacement surgery three months ago and am basically back to normal. Dr. Katz made me aware of everything that would or could happen as a result of the surgery. Thank you.

Dr. Katz has cared for me since 2011. I had a total right hip replacement in April of 2011. His care was consistently excellent. My right hip is fluid and I can do anything I want to do. I have no restrictions. I feel as if I never had a replacement in that it is comfortable and feels very natural. I am looking at a right knee replacement and I would have no one do the surgery except Dr. Katz. Both my husband, family and myself have the utmost regard for his skills as a surgeon.

I saw Dr. Katz after a car accident and his staff was very courteous and empathetic. From the smiling lady at check-in to the girl who brought me back; even the X-ray tech was very nice! Dr. Katz was very thorough in his examination of me. He explained the condition to me as well as all of the available treatment options and we decided on what was best for me and he got me back to 100% in no time! I'd definitely visit Dr. Katz again for future issues. Thanks Dr. Katz and crew!

Had surgery on my shoulder and felt that the surgical coordinator was very educated, along with the rest of the staff. Spent a lot time with me regarding recovery time, and what to expect afterwards. I have been very pleased with this office! Dr. Katz is amazing, surgery was a success!
