Dr. Katz was on time, professional and extremely thorough in her exam and subsequent diagnosis. It's been a long time since I've been seen by a doctor at her level. I would highly recommend her!

Dr, Katz is what every doctor should strive to be like. I saw the worst Rheum before her, & after seeing Dr. Katz, I was blown away by how kind, attentive, & overall incredible she was. She listened to my concerns, thoroughly went through my labs with me (one by one!! and explained them!), and she reassured me about my future. I left the office feeling like the world was taken off my shoulders. I recommend Dr.Katz to anyone who is looking for a doc who will provide topnotch care!
