An internationally-recognized expert in pediatric gastroenterology, Dr. Katz serves as director of CHOC Children’s multidisciplinary feeding team, pediatric gastrointestinal lab services, and the division of pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition.

He serves as principal investigator in three studies testing new drugs for treating children and adolescents with Crohn’s disease.

A sought-after expert in his field, Dr. Katz has been invited to give talks at professional meetings and has been published in numerous journals, including “Pediatric Infectious Disease and Gastro Endoscopy.”

Dedicated to clinical excellence, Dr. Katz is board certified in pediatrics and pediatric gastroenterology. He earned his medical degree from State University of New York at Downstate Medical School.
