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

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"..

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.

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!
