I just read some really unbelievable negative reviews about Dr. Gerald Fay on this site. I have been a patient for over 30 years. He has been an exceptional doctor with tons of good medical intuition that has saved me from severe illness. Thank God. Also, he has seen our family thru several health crises. And he is CARING, PASSIONATE ABOUT HIS WORK, his nurse, Kathy is the BEST and his wife, Sheila, is a skilled surgeon with a big heart. Nothing but GREAT things to say.

Probably one of the most unprofessional doctors I have every had the displeasure of dealing with in my professional career thus far. His own arrogance has obviously blinded him to the simple mistakes he is capable of making. His blatant unprofessional conduct and rudeness towards my staff has been astounding. I highly recommend avoiding his practice
Lack of caring for a seriously ill patients by a specialist and their staff is no reason to post a negative review. If my patient doesn't get the care they deserve the specialist will hear from me directly. It's not arrogance It is standing up for what is right.

Rude, unhelpful, did not address my problem. He tested my reflexes by hammering as hard as he could under my knees 8 times each with an oversized round tool, not the small rubber tool usually tapped lightly. You could hear the loud hits, it was equivalent to a beating. I was told by another MD that this was NOT usual and was abusive. I will swear under oath that this is absolutely true.
Sadly the Internet has become a vehicle where primarily unhappy people voice complaints anonymously more so than pleased customer/patients. Narcotic addiction is a major cause of death and disharmony in our society. What hurts more than a reflex hammer, which is used in every physical, is being told you need to go to a pain clinic because you have an addiction. There is no reprisal just hope for recovery

exceptionally knowledge. Truly cares about his patients. Has the finest staff nurse, Cathy, I have ever been around. Takes all the time necessary to actually understand what you are and are not saying to come up with solutions to the obvious and thankfully the less obvious illnesses.
