Patient Comments (5)
Pompano Beach, FL |
Waited over an hour after my appointment before he saw me. For the first 10 minutes he discussed personal issues with an intern, then checked me and didn't give me any indication of what could be the problem, only referred me to an ENT after I told him I had already been to an ENT. He said the blood work wasn't available that he needed and come back in 2 weeks. Really strange. A total waste of my time after spending a full day getting blood work his office requested and a MRI per his request.

Dr Kay has been a Godsend after consulting several Drs. he has been able to alleviate my severe eye condition.

I spent a good half of the day at the office and after extensive testing, Dr. Kay was able to give me an answer to my concerns. He explained everything so clearly and spoke to me like he actually cared about me and my condition. I would never wish for anyone to be diagnosed with Optic Neuritis - but if they are, I would recommend seeing Dr. Kay! He and his staff are helpful, compassionate and even can make you laugh in a terrifying situation. A million thank yous!
in Delray Beach, FL |
I was nervous about what he might find, having never been referred to a neuro ophthalmologist before. Dr Kay explained everything clearly and put me at ease. Also, all staff were friendly and professional.

Very thorough, knowledgeable and caring. Correctly diagnosed my condition and eventually referred me to Bascom POalmer Hospital in Miami or successful corrective surgery. (No longer in Boca). Has offices in Fort Lauderdale, Aventura and West Palm Beach.
