Dr. Katz is a wonderful doctor and his staff is so efficient. They all set the bar very high for both doctor and office staff. This is my second surgery with Dr. Katz and I can't think of anyone else I would pick to treat me. He obviously cares about his patients and their positive outcomes from his surgeries. I recommend him highly for anyone who wants the best. He is caring, compassionate and highly skilled.
