Hollywood, FL |
Obtaining an appointment was a nightmare. They so overbook that one is not seen for over an hour from appointment time.

Without a doubt, the most compitent Doctor I have ever been too.
Miami, FL |
Most AWFUL experience! My mother and I sat in the waiting room with my 1 yr old for over 2 hrs! They put my mother in the computer under the wrong name even after her filling out all that paperwork and writing her name on all 8 pages. My mother had x-rays of her hand, we sat in the room for almost an hr with my daughter screaming. Dr Katz finally came in, didn't even look at the x-rays grabbed my mother's hand and injected her with cortisone. Didn't even give her any follow up information!

Incompetent narcissist award goes to this DO. 3 HOURS waiting in the office and she didn't even read my test results nor notes from prior ortho that worked in the SAME office before telling me that I needed better insurance and walked out of the room. My insurance had already given prior authorization. Trying to get records from Spine and Orthopedic Specialists of South Florida for over 2 months now. Multiple elderly patients in waiting area being treated so poorly it made me ill. Don't go there
in Fort Lauderdale, FL |
Office is very bad about any followup. After first seeing Dr. Katz, she requested I get and MRI for knee pain. I did, expecting a call back. Never happened. I waited a week and left a message. No call back. Repeated a bunch of times and was able to get an appointment for 9:45 am today. Waited in an exam room 58 minutes before Doctor came. Spent my time watching ants crawl on the floor. Spent about 2 minutes with her. Ignored for 15 mins on checkout. Demanded my disk and report. Not going back.

Dr. Katz has preformed surgery on both myself and my wife. She is by far the best surgeon in the area. We trust her wholeheartedly.
