What I liked about Dr. Kass was his thoroughness and communication. He didn't seem to be in a hurry as many docs are and although I only went in for an ear issue, he checked my nose and throat as well.He fixed my ear issue with minimal pain and was really clear about what may have caused it and what to look for in the future. He even showed me a video of the procedure, which was a little unnerving at first (seeing your ear cleaned) but actually was a relief to finally visualize what was going on in my head. He keeps the vids archived if I ever return or have more questions. I had a lot of questions and he had no problem answering those, even if they seemed obvious. As a bonus, Dr. Kass seems genuinely interested in what he does and regardless of someone's profession that's always cool to see. My only small critique was that it took a bit to be seen (10-15 mins after my appt time) but once he came out he thanked me for my patience and everything went fine. No big deal because his thoroughness afterwards made up for it!

Dr. Kass is a genius. I feel like his state-of-the-art turbinate reduction added years to my life. My sleep apnea is cured. My girlfriend is forever grateful because I no longer snore.

I was shocked to learn that he was out-of-network when it says that he accepts Cigna on the website. Moreover, I have been charged for surgery-bunch of services that i never received. Be wary!!

Its a shame because the office visit itself went well. However, they charged my insurance for a bunch of procedures I did not receive. I tried calling the office several times but it just goes to voicemail (which is a fullmailbox). Maybe leaving this negative review will actually get them to return to my call.

Dr. Kass took an approach with me that no other doctor has taken. In a nutshell, he took a whole-body, problem-solving approach. He spent about 45 minutes examining my ears, nose and throat, and listening/asking questions about my symptomsas well as lifestyle. He suggested a sleep study due to my narrow inferior turbinates (which was a surprise to learn at 50 years old!) I do not snore, but I've lived with fatigue my entire life and no other doctors (including other ENTs) have suggested a sleep study. I went to see Dr. Kass for a perceived lump in my throat and I left having learned some significant information about my anatomy, and a possible explanation for a lifetime condition of fatigue. He ordered f/u testing for my throat as well. The follow up info he provided via email was timely and useful.

Visiting Dr. Kass for the first time was eye-opening. I actually spent 20 minutes with a DOCTOR. Not a nurses assistant or an aid of some type. A DOCTOR. Dr. Kass helped me with my immediate problem, answered questions, provided ideasfor better health, and left me feeling better. Isn't that why we visit DOCTOR's? I was very pleased after this first appointment, and will definitely be back. Easy to talk to, excellent explanation of topics discussed. A+!
