Specialties

Dr. Arnold Katz has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Long term patieInt

I started seeing Dr Katz in 1993 and had selected him due to his activities as a member of the professional advisory board of the Arthritis Foundation Magazine. He takes the time needed with each patient. I was used to physicians who never really "listened" to me. So I frequently left with unresolved issues. Dr Katz takes time to conducts a thorough interview. He has proven to be an excellent advisor. I wish I were as good a patient as he is a doctor. I found his staff quite friendly and never had an issue with rudeness. His staff recently changed due to retirements and the new people are beginning to work together with confidence. In all, I would highly recommend Dr Katz to anyone I know.

Dr. Katz is a fantastic doctor. I saw him for years and was very pleased with his care. The reason I left his practice is strictly due to his staff. They are rude and unwilling to bend even in extreme circumstances. I had a phone call from his nurse one afternoon and was appalled by her extremely rude behavior...it's why I left. If you can put up with staff's attitude, I'd recommend him to you. If you don't have the patience to put up with rude people, stay away.

not very creative in diagnosis obviously wanted to say it was fibromyalgia which it was not. I gave up after 3 visits and a few tests to seek a different path. Desk staff needs help. The nursing assistant was great.
