July 27, 2019 Had my consultation with Dr. Katz today. He arrived 45 minutes late and waltzed into the room as if he was God. He immediately told me I was overweight. And then began speaking about my dire need for tests. Endoscopy and Colonoscopy. He wasn't interested in my situation and just spoke about the tests. His exam of me was a joke and he really didn't do anything. He did mention several times that he's the best Doctor in this practice. Anyways I won't be returning there nor will I recommend him to anyone. I have no trust in this Doctor!

My experience with Dr Katz was the most negative physician experience I've ever had. He is arrogant and condescending, disrespectful of woman, provides no explanations or answers to questions of grave concern. He expresses no compassion nor care for a patient's condition and is disinterested in both patient health and care. Dr Katz is a professional salesman for costly medical procedures that are unnecessary; he's lining his pockets in the disguise of a greed driven doctor. Not recommended!
