Relief after 13 years

Dr. Katz never gave up on my problem. After years of other doctors, chiropractors, acupuncture, physical therapy, etc., Dr. Katz found what it took to get me relief.

Dr. Katz is the best.

Indeed, I would go so far as to say he is the best physician ever to have attended me. Not only is he a master of his craft, but he is most friendly and approachable, he listens, he takes time with his patients, and his love for his patients comes through loud and clear. I feel privileged to have him as my physician.

Hurting gets help!

I have severe tendonitis in my ankle and heel along with other issues that developed from a terrible ankle injury and a later surgical intervention. I have never had anything like it and when it flares up, I can hardly walk. This is very difficult because I am in my mid-thirties and live a very active life. I believe that Dr. Katz really is 100% concerned about me getting the best treatment and providing me with the tools to live with this lifelong problem the best way I can. I honestly feel that he is giving me the advice he would give his parent or child. It is really great to finally convince someone that has the power to help you, that you really do need help and you are not trying to find a sympathetic ear or trying to milk an insurance company. Thank you for giving much of my life back Dr. Katz!!

Such a great doctor

I've been seeing DR. Katz for almost 25 years . He is the best doctor I have ever seen , I wish all doctors would show the compassion and attention that is always shown by Dr. Katz . I don't have one single bad thing to say about him or his staff . It may take time to get an appointment sometimes , but that is because he is such a great doctor !
