Dr Kays performed my breast reconstruction surgery after a double mastectomy. He and his staff were so compassionate and professional during a very difficult time. I am so pleased with my outcome and would highly recommend him to women who are preparing to go through reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Kays and his team completed a tummy tuck for me recently and it was absolutely excellent. He is very caring, patient, and professional. I felt comfortable with the entire process and at 59, it was a bit unnerving. Dr. Kays' team will take excellent care of you from the beginning to the end.

Dr Kays and his staff were wonderful! Both so compassionate. They spent a lot of time with me, explained every aspect of my surgery from beginning to end. It was an unbelievable experience. From the moment I walked into the office for my consult, to the day of my surgery and post op appointments, I felt they gave me the care they would have given their own family. I couldn’t have chosen a more competent doctor. Thank you for letting me love my body again!

I had really uneven breasts to begin with (at least 2 cup sizes different), so I went and discussed my options with Dr. Kays and we agreed that a breast augmentation surgery would be best for me. Him and his staff did everything to make me feel comfortable and overall happy at the end of my surgery. My breasts are close to even now and I love them, I love how I look, and I would recommend Dr. Kay’s and his staff to anyone who is considering a cosmetic surgery.

After a diagnosis of breast cancer, chemo and a mastectomy I was glad to be cancer free. Dr. Kayes and his team performed my reconstruction surgery. Now, after seeing the results I can with complete and sincere honesty recommend Dr. Kayes. He is not only a competent and qualified surgeon, but an artist as well. Thank you Dr Kayes, Nurse Morgan and Nurse TIffany for walking me through such a difficult time in my life and making me feel whole again.
