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.

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.
