Bad news

I hope I never have to encounter a doctor like this ever again in my LIFE! He just says we must have surgery as soon as possible....blah blah blah....no explanation of what is going to occur or how the procedure is done. Plus he is down right verbally condescending. Geezzzeee....Good Luck Doc!

Dr. Katz is an AWESOME doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Before I went to see him, I was hopeless and depressed from what I had experienced from my last surgeon. Dr. Katz examined me and the next thing you know he came up with a plan to help me... He is truly a life saver in my eyes
