He saw me fast. Which is the only good thing. I was in terrible pain and he would not return my phone calls for five days. He lied to my general doctor saying he called me when he didn't. Why he would lie I have no idea but it says something about his character. Also you will never talk to anyone only vm. The people working the front complain they are under staffed and can not handle all of the calls and Drs.

This doctor is careless and makes serious errors which endanger patients. He rushes through procedures. Avoid him.

I was referred to Dr. katkov by my main physician Doctor Sachs. She told me that he was fantastic, and she was absolutely right. He was kind patiant and willing to to here my concerns. Both he and is staff are amazing specially his nurse and right hand women Lisa. Thank you Doctor Katkov and Staff. Erik Butler

My wife and I were both struck by the efficiency and the friendliness of this office. We only waited about 2 minutes before being called in and every person we encountered was extremely friendly. Dr. Katkov let me fully express my concerns about my health situation and he listened intently. He was warm, knowledgeable, thorough, and made me feel like I was the only patient he had to see. Best encounter with a medical professional I have had in a very, very long time.
