Pediatrician in Louisville, KYDavid Katz, MD

I was born in the Bronx, New York, and grew up on Long Island. A New York Yankee fan by birthright, I migrated to Louisville to join the practice in 1981.

I graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia with a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and received my M.D. degree from the Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. I served my residency in pediatrics at the Long Island Jewish-Hillside Medical Center in New York. In my final year of residency, I spent six months working in the Department of Pediatric Neurology and continued my training in child development the following year as a Fellow in Behavioral Pediatrics at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. In addition to general pediatric medicine, I enjoy focusing on child development and educational issues such as ADHD, behavior, family and school issues.

In this capacity, I teach medical students and pediatric residents in training. I am a past president of the Louisville Pediatric Society and have served on patient care committees at Norton Children’s Hospital. I currently serve on the Passport Health Plan primary care committee, which helps provide excellent health care to patients with financial challenges. I have delivered presentations on developmental issues at U of L Department of Pediatrics grand rounds, at Our Lady of Peace Hospital, and for parent groups in the community. 

My wife, Barbara, and I enjoy living in Louisville.

We enjoy bicycling, walking, theater, Jewish studies classes, photography, and travel, including visits to our children, Jonathan, a journalist and author; Jonathan’s wife, Claire, a history professor; Rebecca, who works in higher education learning assistance; and Rebecca’s wife, Donna, a tech industry professional.
