Brian Katz, PA-C Reviews (223)

Treatment / Procedure

Didn't have to wait long to be seen by Brian. He made me feel at ease even after I found out I needed a total shoulder replacement. I like that he showed me my x-ray and explained what we were looking at. I didn't feel rushed and he was very gentle when he gave me the cortisone injection. Was happy to see the precautions that were being done to protect us from Covid-19.

Brian Katz is an expert on giving the shots to my knee. Always satisfied to be treated by a friendly capable professional.

Considerate of my needs. Honest.

Walk-In / Urgent Care

Brian Katz is always very helpful. I trust his judgement. He showed me the x-ray picture and put my mind at ease. I've been seeing him for follow-ups after I had the surgery from Dr. Ruark. He's very knowledgeable. I trust both of their knowledge.

Everyone was so nice and calm. It made me feel relaxed. Considering the situation. [Single best thing is...] Not having that grinding pain in my knee.

Treatment / Procedure

Brian is well informed and very professional, I have as much faith in his ability as any doctor. He's always courteous and listens. I had fluid on the knee, and had to be drained.

Treatment / Procedure

PA Katz is great. I came to Advanced Ortho because I was a patient of Dr. Ruark's previously and am coming back for more surgery. PA Katz has been made available to me to speed the surgery process, guide me along, and attend to my pre-surgery needs. He really has a good patient interface manner. In spite of all the Covidmania going on, he is rock solid. I got my cortico-steroid injection and he explained that the surgery was being pushed back and explained the impact to me. Good dialogue with provider. Even the office staff is friendly and helpful.

New Patient Visit

The young man has a reasonably good bedside manner which for my part goes a long way in servicing his patients. He explained and was to the point in a short amount of time.

Office Visit / Follow-up

My questions were answered and personal protection protocols were followed.

Rotator Cuff Repair

Got checked in very fast even with the COVID checking etc. No waiting time in the Doctors office and this being my first meeting post-surgery I was told specifically the surgery issues, took out my stitches, gave me some exercises and a therapy group to see and I was on my way.

New Patient Visit

Patient care was great. Very informed.

New Patient Visit

Brian is smart, professional and friendly. [Single best thing is...] I now know what is wrong.

Walk-In / Urgent Care

Very professional and knowledgeable young man. I went to sit in my chair, but fell off on my left arm and hip. Xrays were taken of my arm, shoulder and hip and showed no broken bones. The xrays were explained to me and I was told to just continue the physical therapy that I was currently taking. Brian was very courteous and pleasant and told me to return if I had any future concerns.

Total Knee Replacement

Being a post op visit they realize your in pain and not driving yourself so they saw that I didn't wait, did my interview right away (corona info) Then the PA came removed the staples applied sterile-strips and I was on my way, perfect.. [Single best thing is...] The effort taken by the PA to not hurt you when removing the staples, my leg looked like a zipper!!

Office Visit / Follow-up

Very informative and answered questions that we had with patience and reassurance.
