Dr. Katzen's bedside manner is AMAZING!!!, September 25, 2009, 1:06 am
Reviewer: Colline

I first met Dr. Katzen at an Obesity Help Convention. After interviewing several surgeons I was most impressed with Dr. Katzen’s demeanor. Although I saw how kind he was with potential patients what caught my eye was how loving he was towards his wife and child. I chose Dr. Katzen not only for his humble, kind and compassionate bedside manner but also for his experience and extensive knowledge of the issues unique to post gastric bypass patients. Furthermore, I am also one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and do not accept blood transfusions, Dr. Katzen fully respects my beliefs knowing full well the risks involved with taking me on as a patient.

So far I have had a circumferential body lift and a thigh lift. My recovery has been difficult and longer then I hoped. Dr. Katzen and his staff have been kind to explain and ease my fears, on this journey to redefine me. Dr. Katzen could look at my body and envision the beauty within. I am very grateful that Dr. Katzen and his staff truly care not only during surgery but also during my times of recovery. The emotional support has been invaluable.

Dr. Katzen made my dreams come true., August 26, 2009, 11:12 am
Reviewer: Mike2009

Life is a journey that most of all take for granted until a life-altering experience comes into our lives. I had to make a choice and have bariatric surgery on my 40th birthday in 2004, not only for my health - I wanted the next half of my life to be a better one. Although gastric bypass was not an easy decision or road to take, losing 240 pounds isn't a journey to take lightly (sorry the pun).

With the help of Dr. Katzen, the step to have the circumferential body lift in July 2006 was something I had to do to make me more complete as a person. There have been a few bumps in the road since my body lift, but I've come to the conclusion that it has changed my life for the better. I have a few more steps to take on the surgery highway and the road of life, and I've learned that in life's journey, the decision begins with me but with Dr. Katzen on your side - his higher standards & expertise will make this journey a better one. So ... thank you so, so much in making my dreams come true and believing in me. I owe you my life!

Dr. Katzen did an incredible job!, June 29, 2009, 12:56 pm
Reviewer: CindyN0807

I had a thigh lift, hernia repair, & lipo of the legs done 2/10/04 by Dr. Katzen. He is an awsome Dr. who takes everything you say to heart & does an incredible job. He has an excellent bedside manner & I felt very comfortable & confident in everything that he had to say & do. They try very hard to get insurance to cover the cost of the reconstructive surgery for the excess skin removal, which a lot of P.S. do not do. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Katzen is absolutely wonderful., June 17, 2009, 1:44 pm
Reviewer: ChristineW09

I underwent RNY gastric bypass 6-1-04. My high weight was 285 and within a year was down to 145. I was thrilled with my weight loss, improved health, and basic overall look. I was always getting compliments from friends and family members on how good I looked, but then when I was home, and changing clothes I could see what no one else saw……the excess hanging skin.

During my weight loss process I had always said that I would not get plastic surgery because I would have just been happy to lose the weight. As time went on and more and more weight came off, I found that my original statements just didn’t hold true. I did want to complete the process. I was so proud of what I had accomplished, and I knew that I deserved to have the body that I had always wanted.

I first met Dr. Katzen at a conference in Phoenix. I was very impressed by his presentation, and his before and after photo’s just seemed to trump most of the other surgeons photo’s that I had seen. I knew this was the plastic surgeon for me!

Since I live in Phoenix, AZ I found it necessary to communicate thru email, rather than travel back and forth. Dr. Katzen’s staff was excellent, and always made me feel like their most special patient. That spoke volumes to me. Soon I had a date to have the Katzen Power Lift (circumfrential body lift), and a bi-lateral medial thigh lift. I flew to Los Angeles the day prior to my surgery and went to meet with Dr. Katzen. I was very nervous when the doctor came in to meet with me, but by the time I left his office I was at such a peace with the procedure, and what to expect. Surgery went wonderfully, the hospital and staff was tremendous, and of course Dr. Katzen made certain that I was always very comfortable. I stayed in LA for a couple more days prior to flying home, and continued to have a very normal recovery.

Today when people meet me they would never know that I had been morbidly obese, let alone have had plastic surgery. I’m able to wear the kind of clothing that I want to wear, shop where I want to, and I have the confidence in my body that I was looking for.

Thank you to Dr. Katzen for helping me to achieve my desired look. You are the best!
