Too busy to give you the time of day

After waiting hours and going through several eye tests to see Dr. Kay, I finally was taken into the exam room. He came in spent several minutes reading his notes from my last visit and I assume my tests which he did not share the results of ever. My time with him was interrupted at least three times by an office worker who was concerned about a patent who was there that did not look like her drivers license. She eventually pulled him away from the exam room leaving me with an intern while he delt withe something else. When he came back he questioned my medication and became outraged at my doctor's treatment therapy for a condition that he had been treating for 4 months because he could not find evidence of the condition. I was promptly and rudely dismissed and told I didn't need to come back unless my vision changed. I do not know what my eye condition is!!!

Worth The Wait!

The wait is long. But the reason is there are so few doctors of his specialty . But the doctor is excellent! He also refuses to take in partners so he always knows everything about every patient.

th

Simply the best at what he does. The office wait time is worth it. Expert diagnosis and treatment. Takes the time, often 45 minutes, to diagnose and thoroughly communicate with the patient.
