What People Say About Dr. Scott Kay, MD

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 would highly recommend Dr. Kay. He was very attentive, caring and knowledgeable. He took me in right away and diagnosed a problem that other doctors I went to couldn't find.

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.

Personally had a very good experience with Dr. Kay. He diagnosed the issue, discussed options, and explained likely outcome and risks. Very clear and thorough with follow up. Staff was courteous and great at coordinating appointments and billing. Would definitely return or recommend to others.

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.
