What People Say About Dr. Ryan Katz, MD

I didn’t choose Dr Katz but came to him from an emergency surgery. I was very lucky to have him do surgery on my arm not once but twice. Can’t imagine a more caring physician and knowledgeable caregiver. Got me through a very difficult year with compassion, good humor and excellent medical skills.

Dr. Katz was very rude and brushed off my description and explanation of symptoms. He said that my left wrist injuries five years ago is what likely led to my recent right finger injury. He was in a huge rush to leave and kept lecturing "you need to be open minded about my suspicion". His assistant was right next to him and apparently dying to leave as well. After merely 10 minutes (and an over $400 bill), he did not prescribe any treatment/medicine and told me to do an expensive CT scan first.

Dr. Katz performed surgery on my finger - while I was pregnant! He was wonderful to work with, so smart, so kind. Very to the point and honest. He also saw my son this morning for a fracture in his pinky and has incredible bedside manner. As a parent himself, he is truly caring and also an incredible physician.
