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.

From the moment I walked in the staff greeted me with a smile and quickly checked me in. With just a short wait I was greeted by Dr Katz who did such a great job on analyzing my situation and coming up with a solution to treat my condition. I would also like to mention how much I appreciate Dr Katz for taking the time to listen and answer all of my questions and never feel rushed. I can't say enough how happy I am with Dr Katz and the rest of his staff.

The only thing I was a little not happy about was how long I had to wait for getting an appointment. Otherwise terrific!!!

I will have to call to make an appointment to come back. The vein that I had lasered on the side of my nose has reappeared and it’s been only a week. It was gone for probably 3 or 4 days until I saw it coming back.

I've been seeing Dr. Peter Katz for quite some time now and will continue doing so. He's so incredibly nice and always explains everything no matter how small it is.

Everyone was very kind and helpful. It was our first time bringing our children to a dermatologist, so we weren't sure what to expect. I appreciated that all the staff was patient and kind, especially to our rambunctious 2 year old.

Dr. Katz was very good with our son, took the time to thoroughly explain the diagnoses and treatment.
