Specialties

Dr. Gerald B Katz has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Love this doctor

Have been with Dr. Katz for nearly 17 years. Love him and his partner Dr. Kilduff, who are both caring, knowledgeable, and reasoned physicians with excellent bedside manners. I have watched their practice grow and adapt to the new realities of our "modern" healthcare system over the years. Frankly, I miss the old days, and there were some years that (as patients) we felt the stress the practice was going through, but I feel like the office has settled back into a good routine for patients and the front staff is excellent. There is a doctor I avoid (Traina), as I find her manner brusk and rushed, her diagnoses not great, and she over treats.
