The Katzs Meow

Dr. Katz IS the katz's meow! Not only did I have one hand surgery for carpel tunnel syndrome, but two! The first surgery brought me instant relief from pain in my left hand, arm, shoulder and neck. I was so ecstatic with the outcome that three weeks later I had the same surgery in my right hand. Again, instant relief from pain. I now sleep all night in my bed! From my first visit with Dr. Katz, through both surgeries, and both followup visits, I have nothing but accolades for this excellent surgeon. He is very professional yet took the time to explain in terms that I could understand, the surgery and what to expect with the healing process. Not only will I refer him to anyone needing his expertise, I already have! Thank you Dr. Katz. James Wheeler

I had a Lipoma on my left wrist removed. My entire experience was excellent starting with the staff, Dr. Katz and then the removal of the stitches. It was a painless experience and I would highly recommend Dr. David Katz. Marge Painter

Post Surgery Comments

I just completed having trigger finger surgery on 2 fingers on my left hand. Dr. Katz and his staff were just outstanding from start to finish. The pre surgery exams, operation day, and post surgery visits again were just outstanding. Things that matter to me and I would guess most patients, exceeded expectation. No waiting at any visits, very kind and professional nurses , office personnel, and Dr. Katz, spot on diagnosis and treatment, and post surgery recommendations. I really don't think the events could have went any better. Russ Hughes
