It was fine. He did not prescribe anything and gave me some over the counter and if the sore throat would persist to come back in 15 days. I am not sure I will come again.

Dr. Alvin Katz was awesome! I was a new patient and was greatly impressed! I was very nervous and he put me at ease. He even asked about my family and made me feel I had been his patient for manymany years. The girls at the front desk were excellent too. Overall, I only have good things to say about him and his practice. I will definitively go back if I am in need. I am so happy I found an ENT I can trust! Thanks Dr. Alvin :)

Certainly a very nice doctor with excellent bedside manner, talking to him was like talking to one's grandfather. However, he failed to diagnose a serious infection and only recommended home remedies as a cure. His office also grossly overchargedfor a basic procedure that should be part of a simple ENT checkup. I decided to go to another doctor the next day who performed sinus endoscopy and I ended up on a strict antibiotic regimen and was eventually cured. Dr. Katz is a lovely person but I suspect it is high time for him to retire.

Amazing appointment. Not a lot of doctors have manner like this. Personable, friendly, knowledgeable and gentle. Not many docs can auction and infected ear without a patient screaming. I hope I don't get another infection anytime soon, butI promise Dr Katz is the only ENT I plan to see for future ailments!

He is an extremely patient doctor who listens to your concerns and is always ready to address the same. Details the results of any tests performed and you do not feel rushed at all. It seemed based on my experience thathe does this for the profession and giving back to the community rather than making money off unnecessary tests.
