Dr. Kass is awesome. He runs the whole office by himself and everything runs smoothly. As soon as I got there I filled out my paperwork and was quickly taken back to office. Dr. Kass is extremely friendly and knowledgeable and answered all my questions.

Great. Procedure was just as he described and with minimal discomfort. (And I'm a scaredy cat patient.) Felt well taken care and his bedside manner was comforting and efficient.

From the beginning of the appointment Dr. Kass was very polite. He was very thorough when asking me questions about my history. His examination was quick and methodical. After the examination he took the time to explain to me what heobserved, and its significance. After he told me his plan moving forward and the reason for his plan. All explanations were in plan speak, at no point did I feel he was talking down to me. I highly recommend Dr. Kass.

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!

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.
