Dr. Katz's Reviews
"The friendliness and geniune care of everyone of the staff from Diane at the front desk all the way up to Dr. Katz has been the best part of the experience. You don't get this everywhere."
"Dr Katz always puts us at ease and we never feel rushed when we meet with him. He always keeps things light-hearted too."
"Dr Katz was wonderful. Very understanding and did not feel rushed at all. Really felt like he cared."
"Working with Dr. Katz is so reassuring and calming! I loved that he listened to our story and questions and "got" it - and then gave us our plan from A-Z... as someone who likes a plan, I really appreciated his thoroughness and patience when explaining each component."
"Drs. Yazigi, Katz and McClamrock all particpated in my care and I cannot thank them enough for their kind and compassionate care. With them I felt a sense of hope that I had not previously felt such that no matter what our outcome, I knew we were in the right hands. The nurses, staff, ACS center staff should be commended for the exceptional job they do. I do not have enough words to express my appreciation. I truly feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be a patient of Shady Grove's in one of life's most stressful circumstances. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
"Dr Eugene Katz is such a pleasure to work with , his bedside manner is one that many other physicans should model themselves to be like. Many times as a patient you feel uncomfortable enough just going in the office, however Dr Katz makes you instantly feel like you are life long friends. In addition, his staff is also a pleasure to work with from Diana at the front desk /finacial to the nursing staff Bernie and Tina. Being a nurse I know that the atmosphere can be sometimes hectic and demanding but even under time constraints I always have the feeling of a quality and loving care."- Shawn, October 2013
