I found Dr. Kaye to be very compassionate and concerned about me as a patient. He took the time needed to address all of my concerns and helped me through a very difficult surgery. I am very grateful for his expertise in neurosurgery, and his empathy for his patients. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Kaye is not only a highly qualified doctor, he is also a very down to earth man. He made it to every meeting and spoke in a manner that made all information understandable. It was unfortunate to have met him under the circumstances but I'm glad he was the doctor working with my father.
