Forward Focus Concierge Medicine Patient Testimonials


"Our experience with Dr. Katz and the Forward Focus medical office has been nothing short of exceptional. Dr. Katz and his team went above and beyond to ensure my mother’s well-being. Their unwavering dedication, extensive expertise, and compassionate approach were evident from the moment we joined the practice. Dr. Katz took the time to listen attentively to our concerns, thoroughly examined my mom's medical history, and correctly diagnosed her rare medical condition. Not only did Dr. Katz demonstrate remarkable medical expertise, but his genuine empathy and compassion were evident in every interaction.   " - Ally Veres

"In the short time Dr. Katz has been my primary care physician, I have found him to be very approachable and extremely thorough whether he is doing a physical exam or sharing results from tests or procedures.  He is a good listener and a good communicator and seems genuinely interested in getting and keeping me healthy, not just medicating after something goes wrong.   " - Tom Plummer

"I love Dr. Berliant.  She is caring and compassionate.  She is extremely thorough.  She is not an alarmist.  She always makes time for me.  She speaks to me in layman's terms.  The office staff is terrific.  " - Liz Wellek

"My husband, a patient of Dr. Steven Lasin's, was confronted with a medical emergency.

Dr. Lasin's practice of medicine is what "practicing medicine" should be! " - Minde Korman
