Dr. Kitchen is tops! I feel very fortunate to have her as my primary physician. She is a great diagnostician, knows how to treat a problem, or when to send you to a specialist. She also listens to me and takes my opinion into account as well.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Dr. Kitchen is the most caring Doctor I have ever experienced. She knows what tests are needed and if another specialist is needed, she knows where to send you. She is so knowledgeable in her field, and I'm blessed to call her MY Doctor. Dr. Kay Kitchen rocks!!

Decades of visits with Dr. Kay Kitchen have been a help and comfort to me. I attribute the way I maintain a chronic illness to her care and concern.

I used Dr. Kitchen for many years until insurance forced me to change doctors. I'd go back in a heartbeat...

Dr Kitchen is always pleasant & very friendly. No Dr could tell me why I had always felt so exhausted. After going to her, she immediately did thorough testing and found that I had a genetic Hemochromatosis and sent me to the Dr I needed to use for treatment. Very easy to talk to about health issues, makes sure I'm up to date on important issues for my age group. Highly recommend.

I see Dr. Kitchen twice a year and always feel good when I leave her office. She listens to what I have to say and spends the appropriate amount of time with me. She has a very pleasant manner so I feel very relaxed in her office.

She answers all my questions and explains any problems with my health so that I can easily understand what's going on and why I have to have any special tests, go to a specialist, etc.

The main problem with Dr. kItchen and probably most of the other doctors within Albany Internal Medicine is the lack of time per patient and the lack of time/effort to coordinate one's total care-meaning records from all other doctors, all other tests, etc. no real effort to treat the entire person. Who is going to do this if not one's main doctor or internist?
