I've been under Dr Kay's care for over 10 years for glaucoma, during which he and his staff have given me excellent care. I've had cataract and retina surgeries with complications on both eyes from other physicians, so I know quality care when I receive it. I highly recommend Dr Kay and his staff.

I'v been treated by Dr. Kay for over 10 years for glaucoma, after cataract and retinal surgeries with complications. The care and dedication of Dr Kay and his staff have kept my glaucoma under control, which I feel is amazing, considering all my eyes have been though. He takes the time to answer your questions throughly, and explains your condition and treatment plan well. I highly recommend this physician and his staff.

dr kay checked my eyes and told me that he wanted to do lazer surgery on my left eye to try and save the vision and relieve the pressure,instead when I went in to have the laser done he did the right eye which is the bad one.now that he did the wrong eye I have lost all vision in my right eye,we are seriously considering doing a lawsuit for malpractice because befor he did my right eye,I could see a little,now I am totally blind in my rt eye.he is a poor excuse for a doctor!

Kay treated my dad for about 12 years for glaucoma. In the past year my fathers pressure was on the rise and all Kay did was give him drops and say give them time to work come back in a few months. My dad started getting double vision and had to stop driving. Dr Kay said it is all part of what is happening. Keep taking drops he was NEVER around every time my dad had an appointment. He would see Flint WHO HAS NO IDEA WHAT SHE IS DOING. After months of NEGLECT MY DAD IS BLIND!!! Get out

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
