I was going to cancel my surgery because of fear. I am prone to infections. Also, regarding anesthesia, .although my body does not look fragile, I am one of those persons who has to take the lowest dose of a med or half of the lowest dose because my body is very receptive to meds. I got violently ill after a surgery with the pain meds. I changed my mind after hearing many positive comments from some previous patients of Dr. Kay or the Crystal Clinic. Also, I talked w people who are employed in the medical field and the med ins. field & I heard that Dr Kay was "one of the best " in the ankle surgery field. After meeting w Dr Kay and his staff, I feel that I am in the hands of dedicated experts. Surgery is Dec. 12. Patricia

Dr Kay has been there for me any time i have a problem. I have Dr Kay to thank for saving my foot. He is my hero. The office staff has been extremely helpful. especially Kristin and Kelly. These ladies go the extra distance to make my visit a fun time. Dr. Kay always answers my questions so that i understand what he is saying. I would recommend Dr. Kay to my family and friends.

Should NOT be working with patients.

Avoid Dr. David Kay in Akron! Very self-absorbed and non caring. Takes no time to explain the issues, Barely spends any time with the patient and his assistant is as bad as he is. During three visits Dr. Kay came across as very insecure about himself, thus uncomfortable with me, the patient. Never took the time to explain anything, and was in a rush to leave the room. I went to another orthopedic surgeon after being totally unsatisfied with Dr. David Kay.

Pompous a$$

This Dr refuses to talk to you. I don't think he even touched my ankle. Said I had to wait for surgory because of swelling(this means it wasn't a good time for him) I was more swollen on surgery day. Post surgery visit was him peaking around the door and refusing to explain what he did. I regret letting this man cut me.
