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.

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!
