Montgomery, TX |
Dr Tay has helped me manage my Type II diabetes for over 6 years. He listens and is a clear communicator. He actively changed my medication several times to get me to a good, long-term diabetes solution. He also changed my diabetes medication to support my cardiac issues. I am very happy with the care I get from Dr Tay and the staff at The Woodlands office.

in Cypress, TX |
It's hard to find a good endocrinologist and I think Dr. Tay is one of the best. He has treated my thyroid issue for several years and then I lost track of him due to changing practices. After a year, I found him again and I happy that he has a new practice and a very friendly staff.
in Austin, TX |
Dr. Tay is a very knowledgeable Doctor in The Woodlands/Magnolia area. I have been checking my thyroid with him for a year now. I appreciate him being on time 100% of the times, taking the time to listen to my concerns and answer any questions I may have and also being honest about his assessments about my health. I recommend Dr. Tay to any patients suffering with a thyroid disorder.
New Caney, TX |
Dr Tay is a very caring endocrinologist. He has managed my diabetes for about 5 years. I trust him to manage my medication. I see him every 2 to 3 months.
in Spring, TX |
Dr. Tay is an awesome doctor! He took the time at every visit to walk me thru the process and answered all of my questions and concerns. At one point, I was having some anxiety about starting a new medicine regiment and he personally called me and put my mind at ease. Throughout this medical journey, Dr. Tay provided access to free diabetes/nutritional education as well as providing me positive feedback for my hard work and lifestyle changes. He truly cares about his patients.

in Humble, TX |
Dr. Tay is very knowledgeable. He also listens and cares for all concerns I might have. He has been the best doctor in controlling my diabetes. I could not recommend him highly enough.
Centerville, TX |
incompetent staff means incompetent doctor dishonest
in Livingston, TX |
Dr. Tay listens and responds to questions and concerns appropriately.
in Kingwood, TX |
Dr. Tay is very knowledgeable in his field. Very patient and listens to your concerns. After seeing a variety of doctors in Houston and areas of Austin, Texas, I was never able to get my A1C down to the normal range. I was referred to Dr. Tay by a primary care physician. After seeing him for less than 6 months my A1C was under control. I have continued to see Dr. Tay for several years. My A1C is still under control. I would never see any one else.
in Spring, TX |
Dr. Tay is very caring, takes time to listen and is very flexible and accommodating with his patients. He's very knowledgeable and experienced in his field. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good endocrinologist.
Conroe, TX |
DO NOT see Dr Tay for thyroid issues. He is obsessed with lab numbers regardless of symptoms despite his assurances to the contrary. I am exponentially worse after a month under his care. He actually told me "all patients are the same - you're no different"., and doubled down on treatment that is making it impossible for me to function or do my job. While his manner is kind, his methods are cruel and mechanical. Very uncaring and unintuitive. Avoid this doctor at all costs.
