He left me lumpy, asymmetrical and most importantly,, October 8, 2008, 1:31 am
Reviewer: roxan

Please please avoid this dr. My experience with him was a nightmare. He was always late for appointments and used sexual comments about my body as complements. He pretended to be single and offered me to go with him to show him the single bars in the area, which I did not accept. The day of surgery he was late again, leaving me anxious waiting for 2.5 hours. His technique as his nurses confess is very agressive leaving my belly lumpy and most importantly asymmetrical. When I went back to him after a year he got mad and started to blame me for not taking care of the wounds and basically pushed me and my friend out of the door. His license should be taken away. He is arrogant and unsympathetic.

Ripped Off on BOTOX, February 10, 2008, 8:47 am
Reviewer: watch_dog

I've tried this DR in the past and was not happy but decided to give a second try because of his reputation.

Botox was not applied correctly, if it runs down my forehead it's not going in.

Went back after 5 weeks when it wore off/didn't take, he was very nasty & told me I am probably immune to it, which is totally not true.

I've been to other reputable DRs and it should last 4-6 months, NOT 4-6 weeks.

He checks out your handbag, shoes, clothes and employer than decides what kind of treatment you get. If I worked for a major magazine or network you bet I would have gotten great care.

His BOTOX was $675. a complete waste of my money & time.

He gets my WORST DR. rating. He should have refunded my credit card, but he's only concerned with picking your pocket.

He even said I would be a candidate for smart lipo on my face, other DRs have said no way, I do not need that procedure. He'll take your money anyway he can get it.

Dr Bruce Katz has probably gotten more publicity than any other Dr for the new SmartLipo technique....and he is a total fraud. He has been on "Good Morning America", "Today Show", in People magazne, Star mag.....he gets you in there under the pretense that he is the pioneer in this field. And he probably is. Problem is, he is very ambiguous about how much of his procedure is SmartLipo and how much is "regular" lipo (I beleive he does PowerLipo).
I --a 50 yr old mother of 2--specifically went to him for SmartLipo, as I had issues that could have warranted a tummy tuck, but I didn't want to go that route. Dr. Katz convinced me SmartLipo was my answer--and it probably is, as it is a painstaiking, time-comsuming process nd when done right,m works great.
But when I had my surgery date, Dr. Katz breezed through it, doing ALL PowerLipo, and at the end, skimming me for a mere 8 minutes or so of SmartLipo. And the whole time, he was ducking out every 15 min or so to supervise other procedures concurrently in other rooms.
Three months Post-Op, I am not only NOT SMALLER than before, I am bigger! He left me lumpy, asymmetrical and most importantly, NOT smaller than before, even after promising me this summer I would have a flat stomach.

The only place I am lighter? My wallet. This is a Dr who clearly knows what he is doing, but chooses to either save that knowledge for his more high-profile patients, or just wanted to get in as many patients as he could in one day at my expense. I am now faced with trying to get him to do a revision, or suing him for he money back. And as you can imagine, he has been VERY uncooperative in dealing with me post-op.
