Steven Katz, M.D., M.P.H.
Dr. Katz’s research focuses on how treatment decisions are made during clinical encounters between patients newly diagnosed with cancer and their clinicians, and attempts to pinpoint the factors that drive patient treatment decisions. He also studies the factors that influence clinician recommendations and how clinicians navigate the decision-making and communication processes.
