Dr. Katzen saved my brother's leg from amputation, January 22, 2015, 1:20 pm
My severely disabled brother (a convalescent Hosp. resident), received minor surgery, by the good Dr. ... just when his leg wounds and leg issues needed intervention. At my request, he took the time to graciously explain what he would perform (which went relatively well). About a year later, unfortunately, my brother's leg issues had worsened, he was hospitalized, and his leg problems became a much more critical and urgent medical matter. In essence: his life was at risk! At that juncture, my family could not locate an Orthopedic, nor Plastic Surgeon, who was willing to treat Steve (all kept urging leg amputation). It was a hopeless ordeal!
After much searching... I managed to get in contact with Dr. Katzen, again, and he went to visit my brother (on his own time), and called me, to explain his assessment of the wounds. Without hesitating, with confident expertise, and without any negativity, Dr. Katzen offered to save my brother's leg. Arrangements was made with his gracious Patient Consultant, Jaki, who liaised the urgently needed surgery arrangements. He also managed making sure that there was proper follow-up with the wound care staff, at the Conv. Hosp.. In a nutshell: Dr. Katzen performed his magic, and Abe's leg was saved (his life was saved)! Again, he was the only Dr., who reassured us that the leg could be saved, and that it was well worth trying. To date, my brother's leg is much better, is healing very well, and he is suffering less (thank God)! Were it not for Dr. Katzen's intervention, who knows what would have unfolded?
Therefore, it is with great pleasure, sincere gratitude and appreciation, that my family, my brother and I would recommend Dr. Katzen for your corrective surgical or cosmetic needs. May God bless Dr. Katzen's skilled hands, and may his practice flourish! :-)
