Dr. J. Timothy Katzen's Ratings
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 Steve'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! :-)
My name is Jacki and I had the RNY gastric bypass 4.5 years ago. I went from 365lbs. down to 230lbs. Even though I was so happy with my results, nothing prepared me for how much excess skin, fat, and tissue I would still have. I was heartbroken because I had done all of this hard work to lose weight and feel normal, yet I still got stares; now they weren't from being morbidly obese, but because I had all of this unattractive hanging skin.
About 2.5 years ago I started to do my research and came across Dr.Katzen as one of my prospect surgeons. I had my consult and to be honest, he was nothing as I had imagined. Most doctors (especially in the Beverly Hills area) are all about the money. Dr.Katzen is not only one of kindest doctors I have met, but his artistic skills are impecable. Then, to make things even better, I got to see his work shine on TLC's The Real Skinny. Right then and there, I knew Dr.Katzen was the only surgeon I would trust my body with.
I have had multiple surgeries with Dr.Katzen that was staged into 3 different surgeries. I had a 360 body lift with staged liposuction of the medial thighs. An arm lift with a horizontal torsoplasty and the final surgery was a medial thigh lift. Dr.Katzen had amazing bedside manner and was very patient with me throughout the entire journey.
Dr K. is wonderful-not over the top...shifts us from nice and healthy, to normal, confident, and removes that loose, saggy extra skin. I love his insight into the possibilities for us, his gentle nature, and his follow up years after surgery...as he says, this is a lifetime commitment... Big hugs Dr. K....
Dr. Katzen is an outstanding reconstructive surgeon with an excellent bedside manner. He is caring, listens to what you have to say and is very responsive! I recommend him without hesitation. He specializes in post weight loss patients and is excellent at truly transforming bodies. He is the best Doctor (his tremendous skills and bedside manner) that I have ever come in contact with!
I lost 180 lbs from gastric bypass surgery before Dr. Katzen worked his miracles on me. I'd thought WLS would be have been the biggest change in my life, but since reconstructive surgery, I can tell you that this process is far more radical. Recovery from plastic surgery happens on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels -- all at the same time. Fortunately for me, Dr. Katzen is a gifted, compassionate, patient and understanding surgeon who understands how to treat his patients needs on all three planes. I had brachioplasty & breast lift w/augmentation and I am thrilled with the results. My scars are fading more and more each day and I don't think about them anymore. As a matter of fact, I can't remember what I looked like before reconstruction! I only know that Dr. Katzen helped to form a beautiful new "me" out of a very misshapen bunch of skin, and I am eternally grateful that I was fortunate enough to be under his care. I recommend him highly to anyone struggling w/extra skin.
