I can’t stress enough how friendly and helpful the front desk and PA staff is at this office. You couldn’t ask for better service in this area. That said, the doctor seemed really rushed and didn’t listen to my concerns. Heseemed annoyed by my questions and made it difficult to share all the necessary info. Going here is convenient because they often have a lot of open appointments, but I’d rather return to my old derm for a guaranteed better experience.

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.

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 clearingup. 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!!!

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 heis against natural products but prefer to push harmful chemicals.

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 avoidstouching patients and immediately wants you to book a return appointment. Not much recommended- just age.

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. Katzwas 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.

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 atease. 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 nevercalled 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.

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

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.

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 receptionistsdon'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....

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 cosmeticwork, 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.
