Similar to other reviews I have read about Dr.Kay (unfortunately after the fact) my experience was awful. He is arrogant and did not listen to a word I had to say about my symptoms. I will not get into what I am dealing with health-wise, however his "diagnosis" was insultingly inadequate and absurd.

Dr Kay was the most arrogant and nasty nasty dr or person I ever met. I was there as a referral from my dr for arthritis and fibromyalgia. He started by walking in and saying he didn't know why I was there and there was nothing he could do I waited an hour to hear him berate me. He kept telling me I was obese and needed to lose weight. He also checked my breathing. Omg I was not there for that. He told me I need a bi pap machine. Total idiot. Don't go to him.

I'm an RN- dealt with many Drs in 25 years. I've never dealt with a more arrogant, dismissive, condescending, insulting, angry Dr. in my life. I was referred to him by my PCP. I have CFS, fibromyalgia, joint swelling and pain, hand numbness and tingling, weakness of grip, muscle spasms and esophageal reflux. Kaye came in, left door open with foot, 1st word out of his mouth - I don't know what I could do for you, I know nothing about you or why you were referred to me. I can't help you Nasty.
