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.

Dr. Katz and his nurse Chelsey are both very personable and professional, I felt well taken care of. The only complaint I would have, I was not made aware ahead of time was the recuperation time and lifting restrictions before day of surgery.
