Dr. Katz graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, completed medical school in Texas, and finished his residency in Michigan. He settled in Canton, OH where he became part of a three-person pediatric practice which grew to a group of eight providers. Thirty-one years later, Dr. Katz and his wife decided to move to the Triangle to be closer to one of their daughters, her husband, and some of their grandchildren.
In addition to practicing general pediatrics, Dr. Katz has enjoyed expanding his medical expertise to include other facets of medicine, taking special training in the relatively new modality of Functional Medicine – a concept that involves the examination and treatment of the root causes of chronic illness that lead to dysfunction and imbalance in the body. He has a special interest in the treatment of asthma and is certified in the practice of clinical hypnosis and NeuroLinguistic Programming. As an Osteopathic Physician (DO), Dr. Katz is also trained in manipulation techniques which he incorporates into his patient care when appropriate.
He is excited to be a part of the Growing Child Pediatrics team and to be a supporter in implementing the FastBraiin approach to ADD. Dr. Katz looks forward to meeting the health care needs of patients of all ages and integrating into the Raleigh community from birth to college.
