He was kind and knowledgeable. The procedure I had was removal of ingrown toenails on both big toes. The entire procedure took less than 30 minutes, the most painful part was the lidocaine injections. He explained everything step by step ashe was doing each thing. I visited to Queens office location on Union Turnpike, so his other office may be different.The office was old fashioned and could’ve been much cleaner, so that was really unappealing to say the least. The equipment needed major updating and there was visible dirt in the exam/procedure chair in the creases. This part was unacceptable for any medical office. In summary Dr. Katzman was very good but his office was disgusting and dirty.

Dr Katzman explained to me what he was doing as he was examining me. He gave me a thorough review of the examination results as well as treatment or no treatment options and possibilities. The Dr gave me choices as towhat steps I can take later on. At the end, I had an idea of what may be going on with me and had enough information to make a decision specific to my needs.

He is a very knowledgeable, kind and funny doctor. My 3 year old went with me for callus removal and he blew up his glove and drew a face on it and instantly she loved him and was comfortable.

My husband recently visited Dr Barry Katzman for foot pain. He quickly identified what the issue was in full detail. If you don't like dry humor then you wont like him (we loved him but some reviews didn't appreciate the humor).My husband went to 3 visits and never had a complaint (he hates going to the DR). Overall i would recommend him.

The doctor himself can give sarcastic or different humor that the first couple of times you can think it's rude but then you realize it's just him joking. He is good in taking x rays and showing you what's going onwith the feet. He will ask you if you have any questions. Pretty direct in treatment for yor diagnosis, if you're looking for holistic care, go elsewhere/ if you know what you want/need and need an x Ray quick, come here. The aide, Melinda is SO SWEET and helpful. She took time to call up my insurance to see if something was covered. The staff are helpful.

I have been to several podiatrists in my lifetime, I chose this doctor based on the proximity of his location to my home. The wait time was tolerable, but much, much longer than I have had to wait in other offices.That however, was not the problem. Any doctor which I had previously visited had always administered a foot bath to soften up my skin before cutting out an ingrown nail, and cutting off any calluses and other hard skin such a a planters wart. This doctor did not do any of the aforementioned above. While I sat waiting in the room, I noticed a foot bath there which looked filthy and I kept thinking I wonder if this is no longer in use, or was some one going to come retrieve it and sanitize it? Instead, the doctor came in and used one of those rotating buffing machines to smooth the hard areas over. Then proceeded to dig into my toe which was hurting and did not manage to completely remove the ingrown nail. I was so disgusted, I could not get out of there fast enough. Needless to say I will never return there again, as everything he did I could have done at home by myself.
