I can not begin to say enough wonderful things about Dr.Katz and his staff. He embodies everything you want in a physician. He is brilliant, kind, compassionate and understanding. These are difficult to find in a doctor, especially when you are in so much pain and misery. I highly recommend him and his staff and he has an incredibly sweet nurse too. You can tell that they truly care!

I HAVE BEEN A PT WITH DR KATZ FOR MORE THAN 1 YEAR. I HAVE BEEN RECOVERING FROM A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY AND OTHER TRAUMATIC INJURIES. I RECOVERED FAR MORE THAN EXPECTED. DR KATZ AND SEVERAL OTHERS NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD RETURN TO WHERE I STAND TODAY, YET I HAVE AND HERE I AM. 3-29-2015 , I HAD A TRAUMATIC CRASH. I RECEIVED FRACTURE (S) AND BOTH LUNGS COLLAPSED DR KATZ HAS BEEN AN OUTSTANDING HAND IN MY RECOVERY AND I AM POSITIVELY OVERWHELMED BY THE RESULTS
