He was good and very informative. While I did not get an immediate cure for my ailment, he advised me on what he thought was creating the problem and to that end, made recommendations. I especially enjoyed watching on video theprobe of the ear, nose and throat. He did a very small and quick procedure that I could see him do on video as he did it. Fascinating! The appointment was actually quite interesting. He certainly knows what he is doing and I was grateful that he could see me after normal work hours. He ran the office by himself while I was there(and does it pretty well) but still does not rush the patient. This probably contributes to his lateness but I did feel that once I got in for my appointment, he was totally committed to my care.

Dr Kass is the most professional, caring doctor we have ever seen. We don't mind waiting past our appointment time, as he spends as much time with each patient as is really needed.He cares, not in practice to make money..only totake complete care of every person he sees!!! That is why we travel over 20 miles to be cared for by him, rather than see an ENT specialist nearby

Dr. Kass is very thorough, answers every question, and examines a wide range of life habits when making his diagnosis. My turbinate reduction procedure could not have been more smoothly or delicately executed - it truly has improved both myquality of sleep and life. He's a tough one to get on the phone but always responds quickly to email.

Dr. Kass is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable being there. He takes great care to be through and I didn't feel pressured to do anything I wasn't ready to do. He offered information about options and I am goingto explore them. I liked the convenience of free parking across the street and not having to deal with a lot of people in the waiting room since he has a stand alone practice.

I absolute adore dr Kass. I live in Florida and hopped on the plane to come see him for a day trip. He's that exceptional . He took out my tonsils as a child and I just don't think there is an ENT that can compare.

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.
