Hard to know how to rate Dr. Kay. He was very good with 2 family members who needed a routine nosebleed cure, but he completely missed a simple diagnosis in a 3rd family member. He mistook her silent reflux condition for an anatomical problem and was leading her down the path toward completely unnecessary sinus surgery. A different ENT diagnosed her almost instantly through a normal clinical exam. The reviews on here are mostly good, but I still think this alarming experience was worth mentioning.

About three months ago, I noticed I had a hearing issue when David Muir started to mumble on the nightly news. Unfortunately, everyone else thought he spoke just fine. My GP suggested I see Dr. Stanley Kay and get a hearing test. I am very pleased with Dr. Kay and his staff. Dr. Brittany Pasquarello, a Doctor of Audiology, tested my hearing and indicated hearing aids would help. As many people, I associated hearing aids with really getting old … They are the best thing I ever did! Dr. “P” set them up perfectly on her computer to my specific hearing issues. They weigh absolutely nothing and you don’t know you are wearing them. Your hair covers them behind your ears and nobody notices them. You replace batteries once a week and change two small parts once a month. They are very easy to maintain. My grandson thinks they are really cool since I control the volume and batteries not to mention Bluetooth options on my iPhone. Don’t hesitate any longer. Try them. You will be amazed.

I lost hearing in the right side of my ear due to the flu this past winter (got the flu shot and it didn’t help). I found Dr. Scott Kay and his entire team—from the front desk receptionist, to his audiologists and assistants to be warm, friendly, and accommodating. Dr. Kay has an excellent bedside manner and was very helpful. After a few visits, my hearing is back. Thoroughly recommend him and his staff to anyone needing an ENT.

My experience of being a patient of Dr Kay has been above and beyond any expectations I had. I was recommended by Dr Joel Deitz a top pulmonologist at UPenn. I had been-to at least 4 other ENTs, was suffering terribly and was told there was nothing that needed further treatment. The very first time I met with Dr Kay he knew there was something wrong and within 2 weeks found that I had 2 relative rare infections in my sinus cavity. I am currently being treated and improving. Excellent.

Dr. Kay is an outstanding professional, with excellent staff to support him. I have been going there for almost 8 years for various issues such as tinnitus, hearing loss, and most recently septoplasty and turbinate reduction surgery. Everything has been great, he takes the time to explain, and I have full trust in his medical opinion and advice! He proactively tries to not only treat you, but to *help* you.

I highly recommend Dr. Kay. He listens, answers questions thoroughly, and conducts the necessary tests; Dr. Kay puts your mind at ease. And thankfully, he correctly diagnosed my friend with a condition that another doctor did not find.

I was referred to Dr. Kay by a friend and strongly recommend him. Dr. Kay has performed surgery on and treated both me and my two young sons. He does not work local to me, but is well worth the travel. He gives great attention and care to his patients, taking the time to make sure that he correctly diagnoses and treats the current condition, and gives advice to prevent reoccurrence of the underlying condition. I also appreciate Dr. Kay's staff.

I have chronic, horrendous nose bleeds that requiring cauterizing to make them stop. Dr. Kay has always fit me in to his schedule so that I don't have to go to the ER. Not too many doctors are willing to take recurrent emergencies like that and it saves me money and a lot of time. I will always recommend Dr. Kay because he cares about his patients and he's a great doctor.

Knowledge, professionalism, understanding, and a genuine concern for his patients--but most importantly, experience. When a patient describes his/her symptoms, Dr. Kay already has a good idea of the possible causes and solutions. In addition, Dr. Kay has a personality that exudes confidence without losing his sense of humor. Dr. Scott L. Kay is highly recommended, and I'm glad I found him.
