Dr. Marsha H Kay has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I have been bringing my son to see Dr. Kay for several years. We come every six weeks for an infusion and when she passes by us she won't even acknowledge us. It is so hard to get an appointment. I usually wait 20 minutes on hold until someone will speak with me. The front desk ladies are not friendly in person or on the phone. After years of this we are changing doctors and hospitals.
I came to Dr. Kay for a second opion after initially seeing a doctor at Children's Hospital in Dayton. I liked her demeanor and personality right away. I felt like she had an accurate diagnosis and put me on the correct medications. Even though she is a pediatric doctor, she saw me up until I was 24 which was fantastic. Now I am 28 and if I could go back to her I would. She seemed very personable, knowledgeable, compassionate and would field any questions with pleasure. We had two appointments a year and got one colonoscopy every seven years. This was nice because we all know how expensive medical bills can be. Our appointments would be short, sweet and direct which I loved. I would highly recommend her to anyone and I wish you all the best of luck in your search for a doctor!
My son had an appointment with this doctor for a scan. I was referred ONLY for a scan for my son..instead she ordered a slew of tests and made her "diagnosis" from the previous doctors notes. "No scan needed...no chance of cancer. The ONLY reason your doctor would have wanted this scan is because they are looking for cancer..." She said this in front of my teenage son....I couldn't believe anyone (let alone a pediatric doctor) would speak this way in front of my teenager. On the way home he asked us if he had cancer,,,,I told him that we are not going back to see that doctor again. We had to wait at least an hour and half in a small, hot office. Our time with the doctor, bloodwork ect ended up being at the clinic for 4 hours 45 minutes. Since then we have a new doctor at Akron Childrens and have been treated better, the doctor is finding out what's wrong with my son's stomach. You asked me to rate the doctor by how many stars...is there a way to choose less than one star?????
Dr. Kay is very knowledgeable in her field. As my son is 14, she interacts mostly with him, which I like. He has to feel like he has some control over his disease. She takes as long as she needs in appointments and her test summaries are prompt. Very satisfied. Would recommend
