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.
