Patient Comments (1)
in Washington, DC |
Dr. Katz is what every doctor should be. I had high cholesterol and was found to be allergic to statins, and other non statin meds caused bad side effects. Dr. Katz recommended a new injectable drug that I knew would be rejected by my insurance due to cost. Dr. Katz and his staff went to work immediately and after considerable effort got Aetna to pay for the drug. Dr. Katz is nothing short of amazing and I am very grateful to him.
