I am 86 years old with many medical issues....Dr Kay spent time and was thorough....he had a resident with him during the appointment who was thorough as well. I am concerned though, given my heart issues and lung issues....if he shouldn't have conferred with both Dr. Kirtland and Dr Baldwin...given my history.

  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
My reason for the appointment among others, was for prostate cancer screening since my family has a history of said disease. To date, I have not had the test done so at almost 44 years old, my concern still is if I have the disease or not.

Easy to talk to and always listens. Great doctor.

  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
I really appreciated the time and discussion Dr. Kay gave to me, as I am a transfer patient from the Kirkland clinic. Dr. Kay was very interested in my health status and history and also to get to know me personally, which I believe is a vital part of my overall care. As such, I really trust his judgement and advice. I hope to continue my healthcare with Dr. Kay as my PCP. Thank you. Gary Brenner

Dr. Kay was not sure if my annual exam can be covered since I had the last one in May of 2018, and it had not been quite one year yet. I was able to call and confirm that insurance will cover the visit as annual exam. Thanks for being so considerate.
