Patient Ratings

I was very impressed with Dr. Kay and his staff.

I came to Dr. Kay depressed and hopeless of ever walking again.  I had seen three other doctors before him for a crushed foot injury. Dr. Kay is amazing.  He gave me hope. Dr. Kay did not give up on me.  My last visit was the best.  I am now able to walk without the chronic pain.  I am very blessed to have him, thank you.

Dr. Kay is excellent; and I loved everyone I dealt with on the staff.

Dr. Kay was able to tell me what was going on with my joints and referred me to a rheumatologist.  I had seen two doctors prior to him who said I didn't have arthritis (when I did).

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Kay and confident with his knowledge and skill.  My primary care physician had also recommended him to me.

I can always count on Dr. Kay to complete a thorough exam and diagnosis.

Always a positive atmosphere at Dr. David Kay's office. He is a wonderful doctor very personable and thorough. I am so glad that he was there for me when I broke my ankle to put me back together.

Dr. Kay Is very good at explaining and showing on tests what he has done during surgery. He operated on my foot and as it has been healing, I can tell that he did a great job fixing it. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Kay is a very nice and funny guy. He is business-like and brilliant, but listens well and explains patiently. I have complete confidence in him as a physician and a person.

My experience was very good. Dr. Kay was very nice, very informative, offered me so much helpful information. He answered a lot of my questions before I asked him. He has a great 'bedside' manner. He was kind and courteous. I felt confident in all the things Dr. Kay discussed with me and my husband.
