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.

I had a herniated disk which Dr. Kaye operated on. Immediately after surgery I found that I no longer had control or feelings on the left side of my urethra, vagina, anus, rectum and labia. His PA was informed immediately. I received no explanation and my concerns of these disabilities were ignored. I had to insist on an appointment to see Dr. Kaye and not a PA. One of the PA's tried to blame something else for this and not the surgery. When I did see Dr. Kaye, he was indifferent, aloof.

Not many physicians take the time to really talk with a patient and explain options but Dr. Kaye does. He is warmhearted and his entire staff is friendly.

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.
