I make sure to provide individualized treatment with a care plan that is tailored to meet my patient's needs. Over time I build relationships with my patients and their families, working together to make sure their plan continues to treat their skin using the most appropriate and state of the art treatment available.

Couldn't be happier with my appointment. Dr. Katz explained everything in a comprehensive manner and I couldn't recommend him more highly.

I have a somewhat rare & painful skin condition & have had trouble finding knowledgeable doctors. Dr. Katz knew right away what to do & what medications I needed to take.... I feel better than I have in many many years!

My experience overall was good. Prompt fast timely service once I got in the door. But Their scheduling system needs LOTS of work. I scheduled my appointment on line for Monday and that seemed to work fine. Next day I got a call saying that Monday was not available so I changed my schedule to accommodate a Friday opening. Then I received yet another Capp saying that Friday would not work either so once again I rearranged my schedule to accommodate a Thursday opening. All this for what turned out to be a very short 19 minute appointment.

In my experience, Dr. Katz is both knowledgeable and able to convey his knowledge to his patients. I highly recommend him as a dermatologist.

I have been seeing Dr Katz for about 5 years, having a predisposition to skin cancer I get an annual check. Caught early signs of what could have been a major concern on more than one occasion. Respectful of time without rushing the appointment. Great staff, I always have felt I'm getting a high level of care and service.
