Dr. Mitchell H Katz has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • 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.

A hero

He is amazing! My daughter is very thin, so other GIs immediately labeled her as having an eating disorder. Dr. Katz listened and understood that she felt horrible, and that she wanted to eat, but the nausea was really bad. He switched her meds around and gave her her life back. I remember his excitement at finally seeing a smile on my child's face when she started improving.

Absolute terror

Very short with my family and I. Couldng seem to explain the procedure to us at all. He really acted like he didn't care about what our family was going through at all. I also witnessed him lash out at several other staff members. Really painted a picture of the man he is. Overall very unpleased. Choc hospital is a great place to bring your kids just really dissapointed in this doctor.

Dr Katz was wonderful, nurses were NOT

I absolutely love Dr Katz as our daughter's Ped GI doctor. The nurse, however, left me on hold for 20 minutes and then hung up on me. I called back and was then put on hold for another 30 minutes. I asked her to please please please call me back when she finishes with her last patient and guess what...she didn't. My daughter just needed a simple refill of her prescription which was faxed over to their office 3 days in advance. Now it's the weekend and I'm unable to give my baby girl her much needed medication. I blame the nurse on this not Dr Katz. I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else.

We love love LOVE Dr. Katz!

My daughter is severely disabled, so we see specialists in just about every field. Dr. Katz is by far the BEST doctor we have! His personality is a bit gruff so it may take a little getting used to, but you can tell he truly LOVES his patients. My daughter always gets a kiss on the forehead, and his full attention. I recommend Dr. Katz to anyone who needs a Pediatric GI!
