Dr. J. Timothy Katzen's Ratings
After significant weight loss, Dr. Katzen helped complete the transformation. My concerns and question were answered from the initial visit throughout the post operative visits. I highly recommend Dr. Katzen.
Dr. Katzen is one of the kindest people you would want to meet. He has an extensive knowledge of the special needs and conditions of bariatric patients. This, combined with his superior surgical skills and kind bedside manner, results in a surgeon of the highest caliber. He has a wonderful team, both in the office and the associated professionals that he uses to complete your care. I have had several procedures done by him and would not hesitate to refer anyone to him.
I have been a patient of Dr. Katzen since 2005. I am also a working nurse who Dr. Katzen and I have done many surgeries together in the operating room. I have not only enjoy his professionalism, techniques and ability to keep down infection, he’s strive for sterility but how his bedside manner was with his patients for that reason I chose him to be my doctor. Having that inside look where other patient can’t gave me the up hand to make a very educated decision in what doctor I placed my own care in. Not only have I been exceptionally pleased with my care and results, but overall satisfaction with his staff, hand picked nurses and even the honest and sincere staff in his office.
I have recommended Dr. Katzen to friends, family and even patients that I know will be returning for plastic needs. It is a great sign when doctors asked me who I would recommend to them and I smile and introduce them to Dr. Katzen.
This is from Kate reporting with incredible amazement at the ease, comfort and lack of fear I received from the professionals beginning with preoperative office appointments to the nurses, anesthesiologist and Dr Katzen who even won over my husband who with me was reluctant to adventure into another surgery.
As for the outcome of the repair of my abdominal hernia and tummy tuck, I healed beautifully without a single negative event. I fully knew and was prepared to do the right things every step of the way. Today nearly six weeks later, I no longer suffer daily nausea and abdominal cramping-- not even needing to use laxatives and stool softeners. For the first time in over 4-yrs since my bariatric bypass, I can now 'burp' and 'oh what a relief it is'. And of course, I must not forget to mention that I have no further problems with a 'hangover the waist bulging' making my clothes fit much better. Thanks again for the individual attention and care, it meant a lot to me.
I had my gastric bypass with duodenal switch nine years ago and lost a total of 120 pounds. As a result of the rapid weight loss I had a lot of extra skin. While I could dress to hide the extra lumps and bumps, it was difficult to find clothes that were small enough to fit attractively yet large enough to accommodate the extra skin around my abdomen (not to mention the arms and thighs).
I was sitting at home and saw the commercial for The Real Skinny and was mesmerized. I made a mental note to be home and watch the episode that told Sarah’s story. I have to say I watched the whole episode with tears in my eyes. I think for the first time I felt I wasn’t alone. When Sarah used her hair dryer to dry her tummy I lost it. I thought I was the only one that did that! By the end of the show I was bawling. When the repeat came on I had my husband sit down and watch the show with me. I decided that I wanted to meet Dr. Katzen and have a consultation to see what he could do for me.
Dr. Katzen was just as kind and gentle as he appeared to be on the program. He immediately made me feel at ease and really seemed to understand what I was feeling and thinking. For me the most difficult part was undressing and letting Dr. Katzen do the exam. At this point I was newly married and my own husband hadn’t seen me entirely naked! Dr. Katzen really "held my hand" through the whole exam and gave me a glimpse of what he could do to help me.
My surgery date was August 20, 2012, and while it was one of the scariest things I've ever done, Dr. Katzen and his staff were amazing.
I cannot recommend Dr. Katzen highly enough. He truly listens to you, he is just as excited about the results as you are and will work to help you be the very best you can.
His office staff is friendly, knowledgeable and will work with your insurance company to get as much done for you as they can. I have done both my abdominoplasty and medial thigh lift and will be doing the backside and outer thighs soon. I remember how excited he was when he did the first surgery and each time as they put me under the last thing I remember is him holding my hand. You cannot find a more caring, knowledgeable and talented surgeon.
After losing 219 lbs I decided I had no choice but to get reconstructive surgery. I looked at 3 plastic surgeons before I chose Dr Katzen. I went to 2 of his seminars and meet many of his patients. He is very knowledgable and caring. When I had a consult with him he made me feel very comfortable and he is very confident in his work. I had a lower body lift and thigh lipo on June 5th and on Aug 28th I had a mons lift and a thigh lift. All my reconstructive surgery turned out excellent, especially my flat stomach. Never in my life have I had a flat stomach. I walk around trying to show family and friends my new stomach. I love my new belly button...I have some friends and work acquaintances that want to meet him for consultation after seeing the work he did on me. I healed great and had no complications.I I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr Katzen. I will be having my a BL/BA and arm lift next year with Dr Katzen. He is a Miracle Worker.
I met with a dear friend the other day. He had gone through the bypass surgery and has lost a lot of weight. He is ready to have the extra skin removed but is scared about the surgery. Two years after my bypass surgery I wanted to get rid of the extra skin left hanging all over my body. I was ashamed and embarrassed with my body.
I had reached my goal weight and I interviewed several plastic surgeons. Bariatric patients are a special branch of plastic surgery and not all plastic surgeons have dealt with our special needs. My husband and I came to the same conclusion. Dr. Katzen impressed us both with his quite professional voice and manner.
Doctor talked with me, not “down” to me. He treated my husband and I like “family” and truly listened to all my questions. We never felt rushed. He explained the whole process. He was honest and made me feel safe.
I told my friend Dr. Katzen would be his best surgical choice. This is a big decision. I had gone to the internet, talked to people who already had plastic surgery. I wrote down some questions and concerns I wanted answered. Dr. Katzen took the time to answer all my questions.
Dr. Katzen is dedicated to people who have had bypass surgery. Even though he has dealt with thousands of bypass patients he is caring, patient, intelligent and professional with each and every one of us. He was available when I called him with post op questions. I can’t say enough about him. He is kind, sensitive, good, genuine and has a beautiful bedside manner. He cares beyond any normal doctor. His integrity rates the highest on any scale. He is one of the most ethical people I have ever met. He made me feel as if I was his only priority.
I had a lower body lift that took off 14 pounds of excess skin. I never thought I would have a flat tummy again. I love it. I also had my upper arms done. I can now wear tank tops and feel normal. When we went to Hawaii I did not need to ask the steward for a seat belt extension. I wore a bathing suit for the first time in thirty years. To say Dr. Katzen is an excellent surgeon is not strong enough of a statement.
Plastic surgery has changed my life. I highly recommend that you call him and you too will pick the right surgeon. I could not be more pleased with my results and the way I was treated by Dr. Katzen and his staff.
When I first decided to have plastic surgery, I interviewed 40 surgeons. Dr. Katzen stood out beyond everyone else. He was professional, artistic, kind and supportive. I knew I was in the right hands.
My surgery recovery had challenges but at no time did I feel alone. I knew I had the right person fighting my battle with me.
Dr. Katzen is an amazing person and surgeon. I was blessed to find him.
After losing 200 lbs., I was left with multiple layers of hanging skin. Dr Katzen has taken my body and sculpted it into something I thought I would only have in my dreams. He is the most amazing, talented surgeon and I recommend him to everyone!
