One Star

Saw Dr. Kay this morning at Northwest ER in Rita Ranch after our pediatrician recommended a CT scan. Dr. Kay was very rude and judgmental of our doctors recommendation. Made me feel like my concerns were unwarranted. As a mother I would rather be safe than sorry when it comes to my child's health. Not impressed with Dr. Kay or his bedside manner.

Dr. Kay a danger to patients at NWMC!!!

It is hard for me to believe that anyone would give this emergency room physician 4/4 stars. I had unfortunately had too many experiences with this man and he is at the very least dangerous. He put my daughter in the hospital at TMC for two weeks after he did a spinal puncture causing a spinal bleed. He is known for doing this all the time. He misdiagnosed my son when it was an appendicitis and me well lets just say he is a nasty piece of work. He is disliked by his piers and surgeons and is known for being unbelievably arrogant. I would watch out if you ever get this guy at NWMC because your life depends on his care.
