Dr. Kappy has been our family pediatric doctor for many years. He is very thorough and explains things clearly. I always have several questions for him which he answers without issues. He is very patient with my kids, which I’m thankful for.

F. Acho in West Bloomfield, MI – Nov 03, 2017
My wife and I have 5 children. Dr. Kappy has been our pediatrician for all our kids for the last 13 years. I can't say enough good things about him. When we need a last minute appointment and he's not available we are very reluctant scheduling with another doctor in the office. He's an amazing Dr. and great guy. In my experience it is hard to find a great Dr. and Kappy is one of them.

Norman in West Bloomfield, MI – Nov 02, 2017
Dr. Irvin Kappy is an excellent doctor. He is the doctor for my infant twins and he sees them as more than patients . He takes his time to make sure he checks them out thoroughly and answers any question we may have for him. Dr. Kappy actually cares about their well being. I would recommend him to anyone who has children in need of a well rounded pediatrician that genuinely cares about his patients.

Wait times are longer than one would expect, especially after having an appointment. Dr. Kappy is not an aggressive doctor (minimal exams) but instead displays a very nonchalant attitude towards child's examinations, e.g., very passive and not too hands-on as a parent would expect more from a clinical head of pediatrics. His office personnel are not personable towards children, they seem like high school interns anxiously awaiting the end of their shifts. FAIR is the best grade I would offer.
