Dr. Kay is one of the smartest and thorough doctors with whom I’ve interacted. She has been my teenagers’ PCP since they were 4 and 5. My spouse is a speciality physician and I have an advanced degree in a medically related field and we trust her implicitly. I referred a friend there whose symptoms were dismissed psychological by several other physicians when lab tests showed no abnormalities. Dr. Kay didn’t like what she felt and what she was hearing despite the normal labs, so she ordered a biopsy, ultimately diagnosing thyroid cancer. MThanks to her early intervention, my friend made a full recovery.

I moved here from Greenville several years ago. I found a family doctor in the area, and then in one year her husband was transferred to another state. I had to find a new Dr. again, and remembered Dr. Kay Durst from years ago when we rented a house on IOP. So, I made an appointment. I brought a list of all my medications that I had been given since I moved here. In the first 2 years I had a brain surgery and then a back surgery. When she walked in the door, she started to yell at me. It became clear to me that she thought I was going to different doctors to obtain pain killers. I understand that people do that, but she SCREAMED at me to show her my scar. I showed her both scars. I never met her until that day, and years have gone by, and I can't shake off how I was treated. (I am 78). Aren't we innocent until proven guilty?
