I have been seeing Dr. Katz for years on and off. for a mild case of facial acne that would be so painful because they was cystic. it would go away then come back with a vengeance as if whatever he was treating me with wasn't really really working. I have co workers who also seen him and was smart enough NOT to come back after their condition gotten worse after their visit to him. Recently I started seeing another Derm Doc and OMG WHAT AN EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE! THEY TOOK BLOOD WORK DID A CULTURE ON MY SKIN TO SEND TO THE LAB AND WAS VERY GENTLE. NOT TO TALK DOWN ABOUT DR. KATZ BUT I REALLY BELIEVE THAT I WAS JUST AN INSURANCE CARD NOT A PATIENT.

He was ok, but I did find better

You can't talk to this man. He gets very insulted when you suggest as a question. I know he has many patients at one time but give me a break. He is very needle happy and at some points he doesn't but a dressing on his work. He seldom hands you a mirror when he is done. One time I left his office and got in my car only to see my face in my rear view mirror .I had blood running down my face

My previous experiences with this doctor was terrible. I definitely switched to a different dermatologist that would pay better attention to my health concerns. Aren't dermatologists supposed to INSPECT your skin? He just took a glance and figured-- that's it! Examination finished. After attempting to switch dermatologists, I requested the medications he previously prescribed as well as the rest of the exam notes of MY chart, and the rude members of his staff refused to give it to me. A patient has a right to access his/her medical record! If I had the money, I would've pursued a lawsuit against his entire practice. He seems to have a stellar track record of mistreating his patients.

Worst office. ... Don't bother!

The wait was ridiculous. Front desk is rude and unpleasant. God forbid you can't go up the stairs cause there is no elevator. Looking for another office as I type this. Dr. Katz looks like he needs and wants a vacation. Not pleased at all. Stay away.

Worst experience

The only positive I have is that I did not have to wait long to see the doctor. The staff was rude, the doctor was rude and dismissive. Did not explain the diagnosis. Did not listen to me and gave me no time. Worst doctor I have been to in a very long time. Will not ever go back to this office. If you need to go to a dermatologist I definitely recommend going to a different doctor.
