Dr. Katznelson was very thorough and knowledgeable. I feel like he is going to be able to help me with my condition. Although he does tend to cut you off when trying to explain. You almost feel rushed. But I do feel confident that he is going to be able to help me. He is the only doctor that requested an MRI out of all the doctors I’ve dealt with all these years I been suffering with this condition. I am so grateful for him being proactive!

As a close family member of a cognitively impaired person I feel confident in saying Dr. Katznelson is one of very few and fast disappearing breed of physicians. He is a very patient and caring individual. He provides a patient and family/caregiver oriented care. He is very patient and takes the time to listen to all concerned. An excellent doctor who keeps up with latest research and trends in the treatment of dementia, et. al. I find him to be kind, caring and compassionate.
