Partial thyroidectomy
Dr. Kass was great from the first visit . Very friendly, made me feel at ease, comfortable and in good hands. He explained my options in a clear way, never rushing the visit. The surgery was a complete success thanks to his knowledge and professionalism, as well as his amazing team. I am very grateful and can’t recommend them enough, to anyone in need of this type of procedure.

Total Thyroidectomy
Dr. Kass removed my cancerous thyroid gland and did an excellent job...I had Graves disease previously and he said that it would make the surgery tougher, but it went extremely well and I had no issues with pain at all after the operation...I was released from the hospital the next morning with no issues whatsoever. I'm so thankful that my ENDO referred him to me!

Seamless surgical experience
I was referred to Dr. Kass by my endocrinologist for a thyroidectomy consultation after being diagnosed with potential thyroid cancer. Dr. Kass explained my options thoroughly. He was very kind, calm and reassuring. I chose to move forward with a partial thyroidectomy based on his recommendations. The procedure and recovery were relatively seamless. I received great care at St. Vincent’s Hospital. The same day surgery team were personable and clearly very experienced. In my post op examination, I learned that it was thyroid cancer and Dr. Kass was able to successfully clear the margins with no evidence of disease. I would highly recommend Dr. Kass if you are facing a similar diagnosis.

VERY THOROUGH AND CARING PROVIDER
Dr. Kass saw me when I was very nervous and scared. He put my mind at ease and answered all my questions. He was phenomenal from start to finish and I can barely notice my scar from surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Kass to anyone.

Dr. Kass operated on and removed a maligant melanoma on my left ear. The operaion went very well, I'm now cancer-free, and so Dr. Kass was instrumental in a life-saving result.

Dr. Jason Kass saved my life! Due to a cancer diagnosis and other medical conditions, Dr. Kass performed a throat expansion procedure that allowed me to stabilize my nutritional deficiencies. Dr. Kass is well respected, extremely knowledgeable and highly regarded by his colleagues. Dr. Kass's office is in a great location and his office staff are extremely professional. As an ENT specialist, I would recommend Dr. Kass to my family, friends and community.

Dr. Kass is one of the best doctors I've seen. I had to see him for a mass removal in my nose and he was very thorough and answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable with the procedure. He really seems to care about his patients. I highly recommend seeing him for any ENT issues.

Dr. Kass performed a total thyroidectomy on me approximately three months ago at Saint Vincent Hospital. He is genuine and personable, which made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He answered all my questions thoroughly and cared about my personal concerns, worries, and fears which was very important to me as it was my first surgery. He helped put me at ease by explaining things every step of the way, from the first office visit for a consult, to seeing me in the pre-op holding area, to personally checking in with me at the hospital after having to spend the night for observation, to contacting me two days after discharge to make sure I was feeling good and healing well. It is clear that he truly cares for his patients and their recovery. Dr. Kass is confident in his specialty, which in turn made me confident in him. My incision scar is minimal and is healing very nicely. He is an exceptional surgeon and I absolutely highly recommend him.

Dr. Kass was honestly one of the worse doctors I've ever had. He seemed uninterested in my worries about what I had going on from the start, and just nonchalant about it all. After I had a procedure done, I reached out to him about my results through email to which he ignored, finally after 2 days he said he'd give me a call. 3 days went by and not even a word from him let alone a call. What kind of doctor are you if you don't let someone know about what's going on in their body, or their test results? No communication what so ever and just rude.

We went to see Dr. Kass for my 18 month old. When he walked in I was sitting on the floor trying to keep her entertained. He sat right down on the floor with us and immediately started to establish a good rapport with her. Throughout the appointment he was patient with both her and I and did a great job explaining what the follow up plan was. I really appreciate his kind and patient approach. A bonus was there was no wait at all, he was on time!! I would 100% recommend him.

I had a sistrunk procedure done by Dr. Kass. I was extremely nervous and scared. Dr. Kass reassured me that he would take care of me and I would be as good as new when he was done. All my anxiety was for nothing. I barely felt any pain after the procedure. I'm healing with minimal scarring a week later. You are in good hands with Dr. Kass.
