Patient Ratings

Dr. Kay is the best!!  He treats my entire family. We are always pleased with him and his entire staff.

Dr. Kay was very thorough. Explained my condition in layman's terms. Did not hurry. He was very knowledgeable. Resolved the issue for me in one visit.

Dr. Kay listens, cares, and is very respectful.  Hands down, he's the best doctor I've had.

I have received good recommendations for Dr. Kay. That is why I went to see him. He's an excellent doctor!

I had gone to a different surgeon and felt brushed off like I had nothing wrong. Pain got worse before I was referred to Dr. Kay. He made a diagnosis and I had surgery and felt relief within a month.

I like  and trust Dr. Kay. He is always very professional and his opinions, treatment and compassion are valuable to me.

 Dr. Kay was wonderful. Everything was explained in layman's terms.  Office staff are also very good.
