Specialties

Dr. Victoria Katz has the following 3 specialties

  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Time to Divorce my Rheumatologist

Victoria Katz,M.D does not listen and rushes questions that she repeats. Does not give thorough physical exams and relies on blood work and x-rays yet fails to address diagnosis with proper treatment. Staff is incompetent plus refuse to communicate with pharmacist. I would never recommend Victoria Katz- I am a patient 6 plus years and acknowledge it is TIME TO DIVORCE my RHEUMATOLOGIST

Extraordinary Doctor, Extraordinary Person!

Dr. Victoria Katz is the gold standard in rheumatological care. When I am seeking a medical professional, I conduct rigorous research, and Dr. Katz has consistently exceeded my every expectation. My first appointment with Dr. Katz was at the Central Park West office, where a detailed assessment of my symptoms and medical history was taken. During the exam, Dr. Katz, herself, also asked me about my professional and family life. Without leading my answers, she helped me remember and articulate symptoms that I was aware of, which I didn't realize were at all related. She is intimately acquainted with the vast symptomology of rheumatological illness. After a thorough diagnostic process during which she monitored me over an extended period of time, Dr. Katz had gathered the substantial amount of clinical evidence needed to effectively diagnose me with rheumatoid arthritis, mixed connective tissue disease, and systemic lupus erythematosus. Needless to say, I was pretty overwhelmed and afraid. However, I was deeply comforted by her commitment to restore my health and quality of life. I have a couple of other autoimmune diseases, and the specialists that I had seen for them did not begin to approach her diagnostic capabilities, bedside manner, let alone accounting of the entire complicated, multi-layered medical picture. Dr. Katz is extremely careful with her course of action, and her compassion is unmatched. I am extremely trigger shy when it comes to taking medications, and those routinely used in rheumatological care are among the most serious a person could ever take under any circumstance. From the beginning, she laid out a clear plan and set me on a conservative course of treatments during which I was very closely monitored. She was careful to be certain that the treatment plan which she devised would be harmonious with the treatments for my other pre-existing medical conditions. At the first sign of any medication sensitivity or side effects, she's quick to find a remedy. Dr. Katz is the first doctor I've seen in a very long time who genuinely cares about how I am feeling and my quality of life. Her business is a well-calibrated machine operating with three available locations. It is not my closest location, but I take my appointments at her Brooklyn office. It's a comfortable, warm, lively office located in a small King's Highway medical center. Whether interacting with the medical or administrative staff, I have enjoyed consistently polite, genuinely concerned care and treatment from all members of her staff. I simply could not find a better doctor to treat the complex blend of diseases with which I'm diagnosed. Dr. Katz takes her time with me. Her work is meticulous, and she stays up-to-date and ahead of the curve in research, medications, techniques, and how patients react to all of these. She has been diligent in making sure that I see the related specialists to prevent and alleviate any complications which could exacerbate or arise from rheumatological illness. Because of her detailed care, I was made aware of a potentially dangerous tricuspid valve anomaly in my heart. After complaining of bone and joint pain to my other doctors for a couple of years, I was quite debilitated and hopeless by the time I had reached her. Simply put, she got me results. By the time I had reached about six months under Dr. Katz's care, she had chased the rheumatoid arthritis into remission, thereby alleviating a great deal of the debilitating pain which kept me in a constant state of exhaustion and tethered to my bed. There is no question that Dr. Victoria Katz has saved my life.

One Star

While Dr.Katz herself is a decent doctor, the office is by far the worst I have ever seen. The managers have no idea how to do their job. The wait is always over an hour and up to 4-5. They are always understaffed and what staff they have are clearly overworked and hate their jobs or don't even no how to do the job they have. There is no order at all, records go missing all the time, papers get mixed up, blood work results are always late. Do not recommend at all. Patient of 2 years+

Doctor's Response

Thank you very much for your feedback. We are modifying a lot of things in the offices and hopefully these changes will benefit all the patients. Patients will be able to check themselves in electronically bypassing front desk and Dr Katz will be notified of the patient waiting therefore we anticipate the wait time to reduce from current 37 minutes to 15 minutes or less. We strive to provide each and every patient with great service.

Excelent Physician

Dr Katz is an excellent physician. She is very professional, caring, sympathetic and very knowledgeable. She always tries to identify the root of the problem and tackle it down one at a time. I have had RA in 17 years and not one doctor cared to inject me with medications. I would get them home and have them sit in my refrigerator simply since I was afraid to inject myself. By having a nurse give me my injections I feel confident that I will be more compliant with me medicine and concentrate on getting myself better. Thank you Dr. Katz and staff for providing such an incredible service.
