My appointment was at 10 AM. I arrived at 9:50, was put in a room at approximately 10:20 and saw the technician at 1 PM. A 2 hour wait. This was a biopsy after a mammogram and made me a bit anxious. To wait that long was not what I consider acceptable. The technician told me the problem is scheduling.

Dr. Katz was very helpful as she talked to me about the pros of getting genetic testing done for breast cancer and other cancers that could be hereditary due to my family history.

July 6, 2020 6:33 PM

The nursing staff that worked with Dr. Katz could not have been any nicer and help calm my fears as I was having a biopsy done. As terrifying as that experience was, Dr. Katz and the rest of the nursing staff were phenomenal and kept me uplifted the entire time because they saw my nerves.

Very uncomfortable OVERALL.

February 4, 2020 12:36 PM

August 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Waited 1 hour once I was in the room (in a gown) from the time of my appointment. Scheduled at 9 a.m., seen at 10 a.m. I wish the med. asst. would have came in to update me on the status of my appt. time when Dr. Katz came in she was very apologetic and explained the reason she was late (giving previous pt cancer diagnosis) which is 100% understandable. I'd expect the same care if I were that patient - I only wish someone had came in to update me while I waited for an hour. Dr. Katz is great! Kind, smart and confident.

June 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Horrendous wait time, got 5 minutes with provider. No time to discuss care plan, concern.
