Steven Katz, NMD
Dr. Steven Katz joined Naturopathic Physicians Group clinical team in July 2013 after an extensive internship with Dr. Michael Cronin.
Dr. Katz’s clinical education included a year and a half at the SW Center for HIV/AIDS where he developed protocols to help strengthen patients’ immune systems. Over the previous 2 years, he applied Naturopathic and IV therapy protocols to alcohol and drug rehabilitation, focused on detoxing substance-abuse patients and restoring their brain chemistry. He helps patients with anxiety, depression and insomnia as well as addiction recovery and smoking cessation.
Dr. Katz’s individualized plans may include acupuncture, physical medicine, prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy. He understands nutrition and treats digestive disorders including food allergies, acid reflux, IBS, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis where balancing the body’s biochemistry helps restore proper function.
Dr. Katz continues his education in advanced restorative treatments such as ozone therapy and adipose-derived stem-cell therapy, endocrinology, Naturopathic cancer treatment, botanical and cannabis medicine, pharmaceutical and nutritional treatment of psychiatric conditions and environmental medicine.
Dr. Katz is active in the Arizona Naturopathic Medical Association [AzNMA] (board member, President and Marketing & Membership Committee chair) and the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians [AANP]. Dr Katz has done numerous presentations on nutrition, prolotherapy and acupuncture.
“The art of successfully applying prolotherapy is adapting the dosage and frequency of treatment to the individual patient’s comfort.”
