Dr. Katz is an outstanding diagnostician. Understands Crohns thoroughly. I used Dr. Dan Present for almost 40 years, and Dr. Katz is in the same category.

YOU CAN'T FIND A BETTER GI DOC.

Dr. Katz is as good as it gets as a Gastroenterologist! He has been recognized by his colleagues and patients alike, for many, many years, as THE leader in his sub-specialty. There is no other GI Doc more qualified than Dr. Katz. I am proud to be his patient fore more than 30 years and am most grateful for his service.

wonderful M.D. and person

You know you are in the best medical hands if you are Dr. Katz 's patient. His manner is matter of fact and calm. He is not a warm fuzzy person but the very best gastrointerologist you will find and THAT is the reason you are his patient.

amazing doctor

Dr. Katz is the most kind and compassionate doctor I have ever met. He has saved my life three times with his quick and expert treatment. I would not be here without him. He has a wry, intelligent sense of humor and a deadpan delivery. The only reason he would ever offer a patient the opportunity to be part of a study is if it could help the patient. He is a brilliant doctor and a wonderful man.
