Shelia H's Story

By: Dr. J. Timothy Katzen

“I have truly been blessed since Dr. Katzen and his staff has come into my life. Dr. Katzen is the most caring and skilled “healer” I have ever known. Yes, he is a fantastic surgeon, but he heals souls as well. I look upon my gastric bypass surgery as my first step to my new life, but Dr. Katzen has truly brought me to the point of healing and becoming the person that was hidden under many layers of fat and excess skin. His surgical skill is only surpassed by his care and compassion. I have never felt that I was just one in a long line of patients. When he is with me, he is truly with me – whatever I need, however much time he needs to spend with me, no matter how many questions I ask, I have always had his undivided attention (and he gives great reassuring hugs when needed). As we have talked during my many appointments, I’ve come to know him as a remarkably balanced human being — he’s a dad, husband, brother, son and supremely talented surgeon. I can’t thank him enough!”
