I could not have been more comfortable, more impressed, or more pleased from the moment I walked in, thru the eyeexam with the tech and my visit with Dr Katz. He is warm, kind and was conservative in his treatment when it came to the options available to me, basically guiding me away from any procedures as he believed them to be unnecessary at this time. I trust him implicitly and recommend him with confidence.

I was very impressed with the professional staff and the cleanliness of the office and waiting areas. I was particularly pleased with the process of having my eyes checked. I've had not so good past experiences with others. This was a good experience. I would highly recommend Doctor Katz and his 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 me any 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 seemed thorough. 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.
