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!
