Patient Comments (1)

in Cherry Hill, NJ |
Dr. Kay is extremely experienced in his field. I have been his patient for about twenty years and I have had an excellent experience in dealing with both Dr. Kay and his staff. He has operated on me twice for Cataracts and both times I was more than satisfied with the result.
