Dr. Katz was pretty aggressive with his treatment. I believe his methods may be dated. Satisfactory for the time being. Would most likely consider a different doctor in the future.

Seen right away, but Dr Katz is very checked out. Glanced at me, nearly gave me a shot without telling me what it was, and then, before I left, staff shook me down to buy a Doctor-made RX that they havea stock of in-house. Also, the office is small and dingy when you're taken back none of the doors are closed for privacy and staff often bursts in in the middle of consultation. Not recommended.

Was in and out very quickly. Immediately diagnosed me at a glance. Took samples from my skin and didnt realize i was bleeding until i asked for a tissue to wipe the blood that dripped down my head. Very unprofessional business

The only thing that made me a little uncomfortable was that they didn't have smocks. Lifting up my dress to have my skin examined felt awkward.

He was quick in his analysis. Did listen me out and explained why he is suggesting the medications. Only weird thing which I read in the other reviews is that he took out a syringe without explaining anything. I had tostop him to ask what it was and he said its for dandruff. Looks like he does this with all his patients. Should we worry about the shot?? Doesn't he need to prescribe one?

Little wait time, very competent office staff. The office was a little cramped and uncomfortably warm, but I'll live with that in exchange for being treated speedily and without hassle.

Dr. Katz is the best! Super fast assessment and treatment, and the staff here are extremely helpful and kind as well. Wait time may be a little long because there are so many patients that come here, but I'm pretty surethat's for a good reason- and totally worth it! Definitely recommend.

He was taking too many patients at tge same time. Did not tell me exactly my condition, did not explain the causes and when he put a shoot did not cover the area after and I was bleedig then he leftthe room and I had to look for something to clean the blood from my arm. Also he did not give me any medicine from the pharmacy instead he sold me his own cream...not satisfied!

Dr. Katz is very professional and listened to all of my concerns regarding my treatment. I was miserable for more than a month due to my skin condition and Dr. Katz assured me that his treatment will work. It has onlybeen less than a day and I am seeing progress already.

I've seen other reviews that state that this doctor tries to sell you his (unlabled) creams and lotions rather than writing you a prescription and this was true in my case as well. I just asked for the Rx and gotthat instead, but it was written as "DAW," which means your pharmacy won't give you the cheaper, generic alternative. His cream cost the same as my insurance charged me for the Rx, but it came from a reputable pharmacy and it was labled brand material rather than Dr. Katz' mystery unlabled cream. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure he knows what he's doing as a dermatologist.

My takeaway from my first visit, is that Dr Katz is very professional: efficient, on time, practicing while caring you. Office employees are nice and looked very well organized. The thing to improve would be to renovate the offices, could becleaner. I will surely come back for next visit as the professionalism brought is more important to me.

Doctor Katz was good and he knew immediately what to do. The downside for me was that the rooms and waiting area needs to be brighter up and have the chairs in the rooms need to be cleaned or let go..
