Verified Patient Reviews
I went in somewhat naive but was bothered by my condition. Both Michael and the nurse were fabulous telling me about everything , the after care and making sure I was comfortable. We are not done yet as we are healing but today’s experience was terrific.
Been a long time patient. I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else.
Today was my first visit with Dr. Katz. He was really friendly and welcoming, and performed a thorough skin screening. I will continue as a patient of Dr. Katz and recommend him to others.
Good Dermatoligist. Even after having an appointment i was rushed and couldnt get all my concerns address.
I was seen by Dr. Johanna Petrycki at Dr. Katz's office. She was very thorough and gave me some helpful information. She was also friendly and had good bedside manner.
Dr. Katz and his staff are very professional and friendly. I feel like I'm in good hands and highly recommend Dr. Katz and team to those who are seeking high quality cosmetic services.
After being misdiagnosed by 3 other Dr's within a 4 year period and spending thousands of dollars I was extremely Skeptical about seeing another Dr. But so far so good, He diagnosed the problem, started treatments and it is finally clearing up. I totally recommend Dr. Katz. I wish I would have found him 4 years ago. It would have saved me money, time, aggravation and lots of misery!!!
Very kind and knowledgeable Dr. My first visit for a curious mole, he was very reassuring.
He is a great doctor because he gives you the attention you need.
Did not seem to address my needs at all
So far, so good........had a small procedure done, and return in two weeks for a full body check.
Didn't give detailed answer for questions I had and was not as helpful as I hoped.
I have been a patient of Dr. Katz for over 15 years. He is the best!
He was attentive and had a nice bedside manner. The appointment was quick, effective, and I got what I needed in terms of his recommended treatment and follow-up plan.
I am not impressed by him in general. I had seen better Dermatologists before and he is one of the few that disappointed me. I have little respect for a Doctor that recommends vaseline as a treatment. He seems that he is against natural products but prefer to push harmful chemicals.
although I didnt get to see Dr.Katz since he was busy with other patients, I got to see the nurse practitioner, she was great. staff was great
Unproductive for my personal issues
While Dr. Katz is I'm sure competent, the office in sure in need of an update. While I did like getting the time and date of the appointment that I wanted through ZocDoc it had actually turned out that Dr. Katz was not in my insurers network causing me to have double the co pay of an in network provider. Note to ZocDoc show if a doctor is in network to not have patients be surprised at the doctors office.
What a nice change from frustrating visits with impersonal doctors! Came in with some questions about a skin rash, got an immediate and confident diagnosis and prescription, and Dr. Katz was extremely knowledgable, kind, and reassuring. A longish wait, but totally worth it. Would absolutely recommend this doctor to anyone with skin issues.
The office sells their own products which the doctor suggests--- high end for sunscreen, shampoo and moisturizer. I tried the sunscreen which stained my clothes and definitely worth the charge. I also got the feeling that the doctor avoids touching patients and immediately wants you to book a return appointment. Not much recommended- just age.
Was very good
Dr. Katz was absolutely great. He is super friendly, and did a very thorough exam. I came in for a yearly screening and biopsy of a mole. I didn't even know that they biopsy was over, completely painless! Dr. Katz is an A+ doctor: knowledgeable, friendly, and gentle.
Dr. Katz and the staff at Juva Skin and Laser Center were very friendly and professional. The wait was brief, the nurses were courteous and welcoming, updated me on what's going to happen and made sure I feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Katz is a kind, patient, and very knowledgeable doctor. He took his time for the exam and responded to my concerns and questions. It is obvious he cares about his patients. Treatment time was pleasant and done in a professional and relaxed manner. Nurses were extremely patient with me and attentive. I plan to go back for future treatments and would definitely recommend Dr. Katz and the Juva center to my friends and family.
I was rushed. After assessing my condition for 2 minutes he wouldn't look at anything else because it had to be looked at in a follow up. I took time out of my work day for this. In addition, they never called my prescription in like they said they would. I went all the way to the pharmacy for nothing. Called office back but they were closed. Now I need to wait the weekend to have them call. Unacceptable.
Great experience all around
After waiting for 20 minutes in the waiting room they made me wait almost an hour in a patient room. Unnacceptable. I spent less than 10 minutes actually speaking to him about my health. Waited over an hour
The front office staff's approach is almost comical. They acted extremely entitled and snotty as if they were doing me a favor by allowing me to fill out the medical forms. Also, even if you're not having plastic surgery the receptionists don't understand why you should not fill out the form. They're an extremely intelligent bunch! The initial experience in that office is so uncomfortable and dramatic that Dr. Katz could have given me the skin of an angel and I STILL wouldn't go back....
Besides the long wait, this is the best team of skin care professionals I have been to. Dr. Cannon made it her priority to clear my acne. My skin has never looked better thanks to her.
Efficient and knowledgable.
spent literaly 3 minutes with me. the rates for the things that were not "covered" were ridiculous.
Dr. Very proffessional and experienced I will return for work. Consultation fee A little pricey.but I don't mind paying for a good doctor
I wasn't very impressed. The front desk staff looked miserable and wasn't very helpful. I went in for a consult - no specific procedure in mind - and I think that was a bad decision. If you're going for specific cosmetic work, I think he probably does a great job. Certainly nice enough but definitely felt like I was being herded through the busy schedule. After a long wait, he stayed with me for maybe 10 minutes... tops! Very frustrating. Don't go if you expect a "doctor setting" - it's very salon-like, with Botox and lipo ads galore.
Polite, listened to my issues, took his time checking problems, quick answers to fix problems. will be a return customer.
Professional, great doctor!
Had to wait a while but it was worth the wait. Great doctor.
