Dr Katz is rude and arrogant. He doesn't listen to his patients and doesn't spend a sufficient amount of time with them either

Dr Katz is a good Dr he's very direct and stern but he sits down and talks to you. I would recommend him to anyone. The waiting room wait time is never long and when you go back to room he's in and out but you will not leave there with unanswered questions.
