Dr. Kay was really nice but wasn't really able to help us. My son had chronic stomach pain and ended up in the hospital multiple times. She did and endoscopy and a colonoscopy on my son which showed inflammation, he also had low disaccharides. Even after those lab results she said that she thought my son was just having anxiety aka it's all in his head... which is the least helpful answer when you have a child who is crying frequently and bent over with pain. I did some research on my own and found a book by Elaine Gottschall called Breaking the Vicious Cycle. We had already tried a gluten free diet for over a year without any success. So in a last ditch effort to help my son we tried the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. He has been on it for 3 weeks and has no pain....he is running around like a regular kid...no longer curled up in a ball crying...it's a miracle. I wanted to write this review for any other parents are praying for answers to help their children.

Dr. Sari Kay is The Best PI Gastro in THE WORLD! There are not enough words to express how much we LOVE her and there is no other way to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Kay and her staff for the professional and emotional supports she gave to our family, specially to our child. I can only say that Dr. Kay, together with our surgeon, Dr. Avraham Schlager, saved our daughter's life and restored a hope for a full and active life for her future. Dr. Kay went WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND what we could ever hope and dream of in the care and treatment of our child. I cannot recommend her enough - you can completely trust Dr. Kay and her staff to care for your child and we are so tremendously blesses to have found her. Infinity stars for Dr. Kay and her practice!

Dr. Sari Kay is truly a life saver. Without her and her unyielding drive and support to help may child, she would not be here today. Dr. Kay went WAY ABOVE and BEYOND to diagnose, treat and care for our child. She is truly a phenomenal doctor and if I could give her an infinite number of stars I would, because 5 just doesn't cut it. Her office staff, especially Lindsay, is the most professional, courteous and each and every one of them goes out of their way to assist you in every way possible. I cannot count the number of times they have helped me as a parent and reassured my daughter there was light at the end of a very long tunnel. I truly credit her for also finding the most amazing surgeon who I would recommend to any parent with a child that needs surgery, to wit: Avraham Schlager. These two amazing doctors, both separately and as a team, more than exceeded all of our hopes and dreams, having treated our child and putting her back on track to lead a full and healthy life.
