The wait time is HORRIBLE! The administrative staff are nasty! I waited more than 2 hours and was not seen. This is not acceptable at all! I would NOT recommend going here.

We really liked meeting Dr. Katzman. He asked many questions and took his time to explain my husband's condition. We also like that he offers a minimally invasive procedure. We feel confident in his ability to help my husband's severe back pain and actually look forward to having him do the surgery to correct the problem. His office staff are very friendly and helpful as well. :)

My experience with Dr. Katzman was great. He was very personable and then dove right into my results. He explained my back problems in a variety of helpful ways that I would understand. He went into next steps and explained how the team can be of service to me whenever I needed. I felt very secure in his opinion towards my results. He was a very friendly doctor as well!

Had major back surgery in 2015 L4/L5 w fusion & hardware. I have to say that I am blessed to have found Dr. Katzman. I was able to get home the same day, unheard of with this type of surgery & actually did a short walk the evening of the surgery. I have completed a 100 mile walk & this is a miracle in itself. I was loosing balance & could only walk a house or two before surgery because of pain and numbness. Most likely ending up in a wheelchair. I got my life back because of this doctor.
