5 out of 5 stars Cellulite Treatment

Great Experience at Juva! - New York, NY

Honestly the best experience. The staff and nurses were great and very caring, which made my experience even more wonderful.

5 out of 5 stars Cellulaze

Had Cellulaze Done Monday March 26th - New York, NY

I have suffered from cellulite on the front of my thighs for a long time, and always hated my knees, so I got cellulaze done and smart lipo to my knees , I am one week in already and I dont see much of a difference yet, they say that it takes time to see maximum results, but I know that the tightening effect takes time, but I figured I wouldn't see much cellulite but I still do, so I'm...

5 out of 5 stars Acne Treatment

I have had a bad acne - treatment - New York, NY

Hi, even though I went to see Dr. Katz for my acnee a while ago, I recall the dr. and the stuff from Queens office very kind and professional . I felt comfortable showing my face full of pimples. I felt I was in good hands. He prescribed Benzaclin , which changed me completely. I used to fill my face with tons of make up, looking like a clown. Today I feel so happy not having to hide anymore. If I didn't meet Dr Katz that day I will still spend money on products that doesn't work. I maintain my face clean with persa-gel 10. But Benzaclen is a miracle in a jar

With so many options on the market, i have counted on Dr. Katz to recommend the most appropriate and he does so in a way that is very sensitive to my needs and...

5 out of 5 stars Liposonix

Excellent Doctor

Dr. Katz has been my long time dermatologist and he includes me in all the new services that become available as I age. He does not oversell me and takes the time to her what I have to say. The staff is great it's nice to come to a place that knows my name. When at the Juva Spa they know my needs for all seasons and allow me to sample products before purchasing.

4 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

29 Year Old Male, Abs, Love Handles, Mid Back Fat

Very professional, most experienced in laser lipo, staff was great.

4 out of 5 stars Cellulaze

Cellulaze - 1st Time - Park Avenue, NY

This is my first experience in laser treatments. I knew I'd be in excellent hands with Dr. Katz. The procedure lasted approximately an hour after local anesthesia. It was pretty painful but once the numbing kicked in, it wasn't so bad. Post op, I've been on antibiotic for 2 weeks and wore my girdle for a week and some days just to help with the swelling. Now I'm sitting with padding under the...

5 out of 5 stars Asclera

Better Than I Expected - New York, NY

Everyone is so helpful and patient in explaining the various options for procedures, which really puts you at ease. I never feel any pressure to do any cosmetic procedures I am uncomfortable with and I have loved all the procedures he is natural looking! Additionally, my husband and I benefitted from all the doctor's expertise when he caught skin cancer in its early stage.

5 out of 5 stars Cellulaze

Not Perfect, but Improved - New York, NY

Dr. Katz was good during the consultation and during the procedure, but I didn't see or interact with him besides that. The two week follow-up was done with a nurse practitioner. I'm told the three month follow up is with him. But, most important thing is that I got results from the procedure.
