I’ve known Dr Katz for many years as he treated my elderly Mother & performed her two cataracts surgeries. Very pleased with my Mother’s care. I developed a floater & I am now a patient myself. Great doctor and staff.

I went there to confirm a diagnosis from my general practitioner. The doctor did not give me any assurance concerning my condition and was not clear explaining what the actual issues were. Nothing done there improved my condition or gave meany kind relief or piece of mind.. I could had done without spending my money for that visit ... according to the clerk I had a high deductible, Aetna says this visit should had been covered but I was demanded to pay at the exit .. I hate this greedy interactions and I will not pursue this further ... I will not go back to that office. There are probably others doctor with cheaper premiums closer to me that could give had given me the same ... two sentences and "pay at the exit" treatment :( . overall it was ok ... I was expecting a bit more ...

Great doctor who cares about his patients. Don't risk losing your eyesight seeing someone else - you only have 2 eyes. Great staff and great ability to get an appointment in an acceptable time frame.

This was my first visit to see Dr. Katz. First I was seen and evaluated by Shelby. I am not sure what her role was but she did most of my exam not Dr. Katz. The evaluation was quick and seemedthorough. I will say that after my exam (eyes dilated), I was not able to see up close for almost five hours. This was unusually long for me and I had to wear my sunglasses all afternoon. I also felt a little woozy during this time, also not the norm for me. I was surprised to find out that I did not need to have prescription reading glasses. My previous eye doctors (one in AZ and one in Vero Beach, FL) recommended them for the past five years. Dr. Katz has a beautiful office and conveniently located within 4 miles from my home.

Dr. Katz explains to you what is going on so that you understand. I felt like he gave me 100% of his attention during the exam and was not rushed at all. After seeing multiple doctors for my disease, Dr. Katzis who I feel has my best interests in mind. The Staff is very friendly also. Ease of using ZocDoc with my appointment was great!
