I a bad experience with Dr. Katz--he (and his staff) are unprofessional and rude. Worst of all I came to find that he often performs medically uneccesary procedures in order to charge insurance companies and patients. I went in for a routine cleaning and was basically told that my teeth would fall out if I didn't get a deep scale cleaning of my gums and an expensive antibiotic. They told me that they would obtain a pre-authorization from my insurance company and then start the procedure in an hour. After everything was said and done, I was asked to pay for the antibiotic ($300!) because insurance doesn't cover it. I was surpised when I got a bill from them in the mail for the price of the entire procedure, and another $300 for the antibiotic I already paid for; they had tried to bill my insurance company for the antibiotic after already receiving my payment for the antibiotic! It turns out my insurance company was refusing to pay because the procedure wasn't necessary based on what Dr. Katz had submitted to them. I had to go back and forth with his RUDE staff to get them to submit x rays and periodontal charting to the insurance company so that they would pay. They also refused to give me a copy of my own chart. My insurance company turned around and paid a portion of it, saying that based on what was re-submitted, they determined that the procedure was only necessary on SOME teeth, not my entire mouth, which is what Dr. Katz had billed for. Long story short, I am stuck with the balance and a terrible experience with Dr. Katz--who by the way is not even registered with the American Dental Association. After searching for other reviews, I found that I was not the only one ripped off by Dr. Katz, and other people had also experienced being billed for unwarranted procedures. I wish I would have done my research before going to this poor excuse of a dentist.
