Friendly and excellent neurosurgeon

I saw Dr. Katz multiple times over a period of 14-15 months. He was excellent. First, he prescribed a generous amount of physical therapy. When the problem improved, then later worsened, he performed my second ACDF surgery. I feel like he did a better job than the dr who performed the first. The whole approach to post-surgical care was different than the first time as well. I believe I had a much better outcome because of this (and from the effort I put into physical therapy immediately afterward).

Dr. Katz did well in diagnosing my back problem and explained to me that I had 2 herniated discs and what to expect and what the options were as far as what to do about it goes. He kept me out of pain when it was really bad, and I'd still be going to see him if I had not had to move. (Where I live now...it would be quiet a drive.)
