Dr. Katzman did my cataract surgery last month. I haven’t been 20/20 for 20 years, this experience has been unbelievable! He is a talented surgeon and seems to love what he does. Cataract surgery with Dr. Katzman was the best decision I have made in 20 years! Very thankful.

Takes time to discuss your eye condition with you. Excellent bedside manner. Will definitely return for my annual exam next year.
