Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional, considerate and careful with my 7 year old daughter.
Great ENT specialist and was so grateful he had hours on Saturday!
Dr Kass keeps me informed and explains to me what he finds and the treatment method. I am confident in seeing him because I think he’s very thorough and experienced with his practice.
If I didn't have to wait for 30 minutes it would be perfect.
His professionalism and detailed orientated approach is definitely appreciated. He's extremely knowledgable. Glad I went to see him.
Dr. Kass is an exceptionally compassionate physician, who really takes his time to listen to his patients and who doesn't just look for symptoms that can be treated with medication.
Dr. Kass was incredible. He's the first doctor that has shown a genuine interest in understanding my problem from a holistic perspective, when I'm instead used to doctors asking for symptoms and spending maybe five minutes before diagnosing. He took the time to ask me a ton of questions about my habits and routine to get a full picture of not only my symptoms but lifestyle. After the examination, he illustrated the different characteristics of my nose, throat and ears that impact my quality of life, and following my appointment emailed me relevant information that I could use to improve some things. I wholeheartedly recommend him!
The doctor was very professional and thorough He explained the procedure and diagnosis clearly
Always the best
Thorough with the exam and gave me a great deal of extremely helpful information and next steps. Highly recommend.
Extremely thorough and very professional.
I was very impressed. Dr. Kass is very competent and thorough. So glad I found him!
Very professional and kind encouraging
Dr. Kass was friendly, knowledgable and explained everything that he was doing and why as the appointment progressed. Highly recommend!
Pleasant, informative, efficient. All around good experience. And a simple and direct approach to records, evaluation, testing and diagnosis--Dr. Kass did it all.
Dr. Kass was great! Very nice, professional, and knowledgeable. This was my first time coming to see Dr. Kass and I’m glad I was referred to him. He welcomed questions and made sure hat I felt comfortable and understood what was going on, during the exam. Had a very interesting and informative talk about my case and he made sure not to be judge mental or pushy. I highly recommend Dr. Kass to everyone!
I've been seeing Dr. Kass for about a year and have been a few times, and today I went in for a turbinate reduction. He's just a great doctor- great bedside manner, explains absolutely everything, and makes you feel really comfortable. He was a great find, highly recommend if you're looking for a good ENT!
The best of the best, excellent and professional , very knowledgeable.
He's fantastic. Very knowledgeable. Very impressive. A one-man shop.
Well-spoken, experienced and courteous. Keeps a clean and well-maintained workspace. After my first visit, I can safely recommend him to any future patients who happen upon this review. You will not be disappointed.
Patience is rewarded. Dr. kass is a one man show so at times he might be taking longer with a patient causing you to wait, but you will get the same treatment. There is no one better than Dr.Kass!
Dr. Kass is very patient getting details of my conditions. He always asks if I have any questions. He explains options and provides suggestions without any pressure. I didn't feel rushed or processed on an assembly line. It's rare nowadays to find a doctor who cares for his patients individually. I would highly recommend Dr. Kass to my friends.
Very professional, friendly, and helpful! Explained everything in great detail, which put me at ease and helped me to understand what was going on.
Extremely thorough physician, took time to examine, record and explain all the concerns and solutions...
The visit was very helpful with a clear explanation about the illness I was experiencing.
Dr. Kass has a great bedside manner and is very thorough in his diagnosis and treatment options. The only downside is the wait time. He does not seem to have an in-office assistant to help him recieve and set up for patients, so it adds ro the wait time before being seen. Notwithstanding, he takes his time with the patients, which is good in my view.
He's a great doctor, who runs his own practice. I love the way he can show you what's going on with ENT issues as he does his exam. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Kass is always friendly and professional. He is clear and direct about his diagnoses.
Dr. Kass is a godsend. I found him out of desperation because I was literally at my wits end. I have had a chronic cough, respiratory issues and congestion for three months. I have been to several doctors and hospitalized three times. No one could figure out what the problem was. Dr. Kass was patient, kind, did a THOROUGH exam and answered every question I had. He was able to explain in layman's terms what was wrong and what was needed to be done to remedy the situation. He even possibly helped me to realize a problem that I've had since childhood that I would have never known had I not come to him. Amazing, simply amazing. Doctors like him are rare these days. I highly recommend him. And when you find him, don't let him go!
He is great doctor. Very smart and thorough.
appontment covered the specific reason that I went to see Dr Kass. I was pleased that he took time to check other physical parts ie nose, throat etc.
Dr. Kass was efficient and carefully examined me with regard to my reason for my visit.
One of the best medical encounters I have had. I didn't feel rushed, he was very thorough and explained things in detail. Very pleased.
Dr. Erik Kass throughly checked me and the entire visit was very pleasant.
Very professional , excellent doctor!
Took time to do a thorough history and exam. With use of camera was able to see what was going on in ear canal which was very helpful.
He was professional and willing to think out of the box. He explained everything to me and made a plan for my treatment.
Dr. Kass took the time to explain his diagnosis and treatment. Unlike with most other doctors, I didn't feel like a number that has to be rushed out of the room within a few minutes.
Not sure if this is the doctors fault or ZocDoc but doctor does not take our insurance, despite the website indicating that he does. Paid out of pocket and doctor filed with insurance with a promise to refund us if insurance paid. Insurance did not pay and sent a EOB that showed what he billed them.... he attempted to have them pay almost 5x what I paid out of pocket. In my opinion, this is what is wrong with the health care system today.
I found him to be competent, but I was disappointed that he seemed very intent on chasing a complex and speculative diagnosis when the obvious diagnosis was right there. He agreed, reluctantly, to treat me for the obvious diagnosis and my issue cleared up. He is very expensive and defensive when you bring up prices. I have tried to reach him for a week for a follow-up question. His website is down, his emails bounced, and he has not answered my voicemail I left.
Dr. Kass is phenomenal. He was so thorough, thoughtful and took the time to clearly explain everything. He was running behind but was very apologetic and after he spent an hour with me answering every question I had and throughly explaining his medical opinion, I knew that the reason he had been behind was because he is this thorough with every patient. Thankful I found him on ZocDoc and could not recommend him more!
Great physician brought my son in and then scheduled an appt for myself.
Great doctor with great bedside manner. Very easy to talk to and he gave good explanations
Comprehensive, educational, and encouraging!
Dr. Kass is my favorite doctor. He always spends sufficient time with you and is VERY thorough. He even records video inside your ear/nose/throat and reviews it with you, drawing on the screen with a dry-erase marker while teaching you. You'll leave there with a much better understanding of what is wrong—something many doctors neglect to do. Highly recommended.
Very knowledgeable. Seeks core issue to provide best long term care. Very clear with explanations. Seems to really enjoy his work and helping people.
Fantastic Doctor. Knows exactly what he's talking about and spent a lot of time with me.
Very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. Sensitive to concerns and really listens well.
I've lived in several places and had several ENT's and in my view he's the best I've had.
Dr. Kass is one of the best physicians I have ever met. Though he is extremely intelligent, I rate him very highly because of his personality and bedside manner. He is a very personable doctor and spends the necessary time with you. You will not feel rushed, and he will take his time to explain everything to you until you understand. Not only is he an amazing clinician, he is a great person and I would highly recommend Dr. Kass to anyone.
Excellant care as always. Highly recommend Dr Kass
Dr. Kass is an outstanding physician. He is very efficient, knowledgeable, responsive and down to earth professional. I recommend him without reservation.
Have been searching for answers with other EMTs. Erik is the first to give me a strong lead on my condition. Very glad I decided to search out another EMT after dead ends elsewhere.
Dr.Kass was very knowledgeable, professional, and he was able to help me immediately. He walked me through everything and made sure that I knew exactly what was going on in each step of the process. I got my nose cauterized after having suffer from frequent nosebleeds for years.
Dr Kass is a great listener and a very thorough diagnostician who is clearly dedicated to patients first. I would recommend him highly for anyone in search an ENT or with symptoms that may connect to that area.
Dr. Kass is smart and persistent in recommendations for improving my health. , Added to his expertise as an ENT this makes me Very glad I followed the referrals of patients he helped before me and came to see him.
Dr. Kass is great! He was very thorough and let you know exactly what the issue was
Dr Kass is an amazing specialist! He has the perfect amount of "character" and still able to maintain the perfect level of professionalism. I enjoyed every minute. I would come back again, but also would recommend to friends and family.
Very detailed and thorough spending time to explain my ENT issues, very personable! Great experience!, Great Doctor!
Went to Dr. Kass as a follow up to an ER visit for a bloody nose. I got an appointment on a Friday evening and was seen right away. Dr. Kass was able to work his "magic" and improve the situation. I had to go back for one more visit to have the packing removed. He made an exception and opened early. That's dedication!
very informative with information I had not had before. Explains information with great visuals.
I've never had a doctor that was so thorough. Very efficient use of technology. Highly recommend visiting for any ENT or sleep problems.
He's very experienced and knowledgable. He listened to us about our concerns regarding our daughter's ear infections and answered all our questions. We saw another ENT doctor earlier and she said tube operation was necessary for our daughter. Dr. Kass said it was not the case, so we decided to cancel the surgery. If we did not see Dr. Kass, our 3 year-old daughter would be put under anesthesia and we would pay a couple of thousand dollars for the surgery without no valid reason. Thank you doc!
Knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommend!
Listened to every word. Very detailed and thorough and patient.
Dr Kass is an excellent Doctor, he takes his time, every little detail matters to him! He knows his stuff :)
Dr. Kass was professional, kind, and very knowledgeable. I felt that he listened well and really understood what I was saying. I did not have to wait at all, and it was easy to get an appointment last minute.
Professional, knowledgeable. He took is time, really cared and made sure I understood what was going on. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend this doctor.
Very thorough, very smart, very knowledgeable, and very professional. Was really impressed and very pleased.
Great Dr, clearly explains what the problem is and all possible alternative solutions.
Dr. Kass is one of the best ENT specialists - very thorough and gives excellent guidance. Sometimes the wait time can be long like 30+ mins. That is the only downside,
The wait was a bit long, but totally worth it. Dr. Kass is easily the most knowledgeable doctor I have ever seen. He doesn't make you feel rushed, fully explains everything he is telling you, gives you options for steps forward, and clearly answers any questions you have. I have been struggling with symptoms for years and he has given me clear answers that no other doctor has done before! Highly recommended
My experience with Dr. Kass was overall very good. He was very careful in his examination with clear explanations of what he was doing and observing. He was attentive to what I have to say about my simptoms and I ended up knowing more about my condition beyond my initial expectations. He made a clear plan for the next steps and I am looking forward to seeing the results of his suggestions.
Today was my first and visit and it certainly won't be my last! Dr Kass is an amazing Dr. He was very thorough and discovered things that are affecting my health that many other Dr's I've seen either never noticed or even bothered to figure out. He even took the time to explain everything to me. I feel he truly cares about his patients and I am optimistic about my treatment plan so that I can have a better quality of life. Thank you, Dr Kass!
Dr Kass is not only brilliant but takes the time and thoroughly discusses the situation and all options. He truly cares.
Dr. Kass was thorough and thoughtful during our visit. It is a real pleasure to meet with a doctor who isn't rushed, who really seems to listen and process the information you share, and who then provides you with meaningful, understandable feedback and options.
Just a fantastic, intelligent, informative doctor.
Dr Kass was very thoughtful and insightful. I genuinely really liked him and have recommended him to others.
Dr. Kass is a confident, kind and reassuring physician. His polite, pleasant and informative nature set me at ease. I felt comfortable and welcomed to ask all the questions I needed to. I left there with proactive solutions to my issues / concerns.
Very, very thorough approach.
Knowledgeable and able to share the most common issues surrounding my condition with ease.
Dr. Kass is fantastic. He is so knowledgeable. He explained my condition to me thoroughly and provided excellent options for care. He really spent time to understand my symptoms at the root cause for proper care. I have no hesitations in recommending Dr. Kass.
Dr Kass was very thorough, listened to me, addressed all my concerns, and was able to see me within 24 hours. I have recommended Dr Kass to several friends, co-workers, and family and they were all impressed.
Good doctor, would definitely go back again to see him.
He gave me an honest opinion about my condition and gave me great advice to how work with my condition. Great explanations. I really am so happy that I accepted my friend's recommendation to visit Dr Kass.
Dr Kass is very thorough and competent. He took time to do a detailed examination with computer-linked tools and explained the views on the computer monitor. This is reassuring to the patient.
He is great!
Besides from having to wait around 30 min before I saw Dr. Kass, the visit was highly efficient. He conducted tests and gave detailed explanations of the result and recommended possible follow up actions with timeline. Would definitely go back to see him again and recommend to my family/friends.
Dr. Kass is extremely knowledgeable, has an ability to convey complex medical theories in easy to understand ways to the average lay person. He's compassionate, and obviously takes enormous pride and interest in both his work and his patients. I would recommend him to anyone with any problems associated with his specialty.
Dr. Mass was wonderful. He was thorough and and answered my questions. He was very thoughtful and pleasant. Top-notch!
great doctor. Very helpful and informative, doesn't rush the process and seems very good at his job.
Dr. Kass is my favorite doctor. He's kind, funny, caring, and very thorough with his work. He took the time to fully explain my issues, the treatment options, follow-up care, and every last bit of information I could ever ask for. He makes sure every patient of his is fully informed and comfortable. This can lead to some longer than normal wait times in his office, but it's well worth it. I'd wait all day to see him if I needed to.
Efficient visit. Thank you!
Takes time and fully explains, educates the patient and is very respectful towards the patient
A friend recommended me to see him. My nasal issues was diagnosed and I brought my daughter over to see him. He paid attention to detail and explained well.
Dr. Kass did a fantastic job during our 12-year old boy's appointment. Very laid back, calm, friendly demeanor worked well to calm our son's fear of being at the doctor's office. Made a quick and easy to understand diagnosis with a simple, manageable treatment plan. Great experience.
Office was very welcoming with low lighting and calming music..almost like walking into a spa! Dr. Kass was so thorough and knowledgeable! I feel like I learned so much during my appointment and he really listened to me. I highly recommend Dr. Kass!
Great doctor. Highly recommended
Excellent specialist knows his field inside out and up to date with the latest medical research.
I would give Dr.Kass five star! He is professional and patient. He went through the details and explained his thoughts and diagnosis for my health issue to me.
I ended up seeing Dr. Kass as an emergency - he was the only doctor available. I'm so very grateful for my luck, though - he is a wonderful, gracious physician. He was amiable and put me at ease. Very attentive and easy to talk to. Polite and kind, even at the very end of a long day. Highly recommend!
Really thorough and very insightful. I'm so glad to have seen him!
Fantastic experience with Dr. Kass. He listened carefully and took extensive notes. As a person who gets nervous in the doctor's office, he made me feel comfortable and at-ease right away. He patiently walked me through the entire process and explained everything in thorough detail. I will be recommending Dr. Kass to all of my family and friends.
Dr. Kass is intelligent and informed, and he was very thorough in asking and listening before making any conclusions. He was very good at explaining what he saw, and teaching me. I very much appreciated the time he took.
Wait wasn't too long and Dr. Kass was very professional. Satisfied with the visit.
Dr. Kass is very thorough. He is interested in the whole body approach, tries to figure out how other things going on inside can effect your current medical complaint/pain. This guy is very intelligent, thorough. Unfortunately I've had to meet lots of doctors because of my Dad's illnesses, I know a good one from a so-so one, he's very good.
Outstanding. Excellent ent with great bedside manner, and in contrast to so many physicians these days he actually listens very carefully.
This was my second time seeing Dr. Kass, a follow-up after seeing him a few months ago and getting the results of some of his recommended tests done. He's a really great doctor, he explains everything to me very fully, and I always get the sense that he's being really honest about the available medical information surrounding what's going on with me and offers really reasonable solutions and steps forward. I've seen other ENTs who took 1 look at me and gave me a quick diagnoses and an "easy" answer (which was a very invasive surgery- not ideal). Dr. Kass has really taken the time to consider "the whole" and I definitely trust his opinion. Can't recommend enough!
Dr Kass is very knowledgeable and offers possible solutions to the patient for his/her consideration. I appreciated that very much.
A great ENT doctor. A friend highly recommended me and I am glad I went to see him. Free parking
He's an amazing doctor for anything allergy related and specializes in breathing issues.
Overall, I really like Dr. Kass. Sometimes I get frustrated as you schedule an appointment on ZocDoc and then Dr. Kass calls and reschedules. There is a slight wait sometimes when you get to the office because he is thorough and does everything in the office himself. I do think sometimes he could be more compassionate and less authoritative.
Awesom as always!
Best ENT ever! I've seen several throughout the years and he's by far the most knowledgeable, thorough, and friendliest physician I've ever met.
Dr. Kass was very thorough in his examination of my illness. He answer all my questions concerning my symptoms. I was very pleased.
Dr. Kass is phenomenal. I have never been to a doctor who does such a thorough intake interview. I had previously seen a different ENT who half heartedly said a tonsillectomy might be a good fit for me, but couldn't provide any evidence of why, just that it was a guess. Dr. Kass, on the other hand really listened to my symptoms, examined very thoroughly, and provided explicit evidence about his decision. He also used a tiny video camera to show me the insides of my ears, nose, and throat. It was amazing, he was able to detect and diagnose underlying conditions that my prior doctors had missed. Also his bedside manner is fantastic. He is patient, kind, and really made me feel like my symptoms and concerns mattered. I would 100% recommend him! His office is also open far later than most practices to accommodate people who cannot take off from work.
Dr Kass is excellent , he takes all his time and explain you what is going on . Great Doctor.
Very thorough, discussed options for the problem I'm having, decided on a course of action, and requested follow-up to see if the action we selected is working.
Dr. Kass did a fantastic job at making me feel at home and comfortable. The way he explained things helped so much and really made me understand what was going on. I actually wish I had him as my primary care physician. You don't come across doctor's like Dr. Kass very often.
Best ENT I have ever seen...very thorough and patient. Highly recommended!
Quite frankly I was surprised by the automation, computer responses, email and the like. He is very straight forward and lays out the issues and follows up with detailed comments.
Dr. Kass was excellent. Friendly and knowledgeable, he listened to my concerns and provided thoughtful responses to my questions.
The only drawback was the parking if you arrive by car, so you need to call ahead to understand the parking situation and it is fine. If you take metro or walk there, it should also be fine.
knowledgable and caring physician. you feel that the doctor really wants you to get better. he does not rush you. gives you enough time to get to the root of the problem. would recommend him to my family and friends.
Top notch doctor with ample experience in his field. I had a hoarse voice for over ten days and my initial GP recommended Robitussin DX and lemon tea; I could've gone to CVS and gotten the same advice from CVS at no cost rather than wasting over hundreds of dollars for home remedies. Don't waste your time with General Practitioners or urgent care clinics, this is your go-to Doc in cases of severe throat/upper respiratory infections if you are in the Bethesda/DMV area. Would recommend to anyone with laryngitis or ear, throat nose problems. -Paul (Bethesda, MD)
Fine Doctor. Explained what and why each step of the way. He is excellent.
very professional and very thorough. Has a street level entrance for seniors or handicapped in the back. Senior friendly.
I found this appointment very beneficial. I don't often go to specialists because it feels like too much of a hassle, but he made things very simple. I came away having a much better understanding of my condition and how to manage it. I will be going back again.
Very knowledgable and provided me more than one option in removing my nasal wart.
He truly is the best doctor I have ever seen. Patient, kind, takes his time. Answers all yoir question, truly the best! I wish he was my PCP!
Dr. Kass was extremely kind and takes the time to listen to each and every concern his patients have. I appreciate the hours he keeps --especially on a Saturday which is unusual for most doctors. It is evident he cares for his patients and dedicates his time to them.
Dr. Kass apologized for running behind and did not charge me the copay, which I thought was nice.
Doctor Kass was excellent. He took his time, he is a good listener, and he is a very good Doctor
Dr. Kass was very thorough, really took the time to explain everything to me, and gave me great options to move forward with my visit. Definitely trust his expertise, highly recommend.
Very thorough in examination, very patient in explaining
Great doctor and listens to you and your concerns. Very thorough and is concerned for your health.
Dr. Kass is thorough and very professional. His easy-going manner is terrific.
Dr. Erik Kass was very professional, knowledgeable, and caring. He explained the procedures and I (the patient) was very well informed. He took time to ask me questions and took even more time to allow me asking him questions. He listened and answered all my questions with great patience. My experience with Dr Erik Kass was totally positive. I definitively recommend Dr Kass to my family and friends without reservation.
Thorough and thoughtful, easy scheduling and great availability
Wonderful experience. Very thorough and knowledgable. Came in with ear problems and will be doing a in home sleep study as well that might be all tied together. Who can't use more & better sleep.
So pleased to arrange to be seen quickly and then to find that Dr. Kass was so thorough. Very impressive!
I feel lucky I found outstanding ENT doctor. Dr. Kass very professional and highly knowledgeable. He listened and answered to all of my questions. I was amazed by the amount of time he spent with me.

Excellent doctor. takes time to explain things and very patient and kind.
Dr. Kass is very professional and actually cares about his patients. I switched insurances, but was very happy to know he is still in my network.
I highly recommend Dr. Kass. He is very experienced and carefully explained my problem and the treatment available. He takes his time to make sure that the patient is informed and answers all questions. He also responds to emails quickly.
My visit with Dr. Kass was great - he was knowledgeable, thorough, and prompt.
I always really appreciate my visits with Dr. Kass. He is the consummate professional--very thorough, excellent listener, thoughtful feedback. He is actively engaged and interested in addressing my ear issues.
A good experience!
Dr Kass is wonderful
Incredibly knowledgable, thorough, and friendly. After being disregarded by another ENT and diagnosed as having migraines by a neurologist who couldn't figure out the cause of my pain, Dr. Kass was a breath of fresh air! He took the time to really understand my pain and address the underlying issues, rather than writing me a script for a generic diagnosis and sending me on my way. I don't think I've ever had a physician take that much time for me and feel fortunate to have found him!
Extremely professional, courteous and helpful.
It was great with a lot of advise.
First rate medical professional, attentive and ensured that condition was properly diagnosed and remedied.
Excellent doctor! Very knowledgeable, explained things carefully, took his time to talk with me, helped me understand my symptoms, and came up with an solid plan for our next steps of treatment!
HE is very good as always.
He was thorough, explained things carefully, and had an easy, un-rushed manner.

Dr. kass was fantastic. He was extremely attentive, answered all of my questions and made sure that all bases were covered. I was completely surprised by the amount of time he spent with me. Unheard of now a days!
Totally pleased with my visit.
I have been plagued by an array of symptoms for years without successful remedy by other health care professionals. Finally,at the urging of two coworkers who had visited Dr. Kass, I booked an appointment. I really can't say enough positive words about my overall experience and satisfaction with the initial visit, and our future treatment plan. Dr. Kass was able to identify several components of my larger health puzzle, was very thorough, extremely well versed in his field, and treated me with respect. Definitely impressed, and would "pay it forward" by recommending Dr. Kass to anyone in need of an ENT specialist!
Dr. Kass is a compassionate and competent physician who genuinely cares about his patients.

Dr. Kass is very thorough and really listens to his patients. Offers you options and takes time to explain things.
Dr. Kass restores my faith in the medical professional community. He is a true "professional" in that he is, not only, thoroughly knowledgeable in his field (ENT), but he treats each and every patient as unique and interesting individual. He want to know how is your sleep? How is your breathing? Any changes in your life: emotional, physical, mental, etc. It is refreshing to see someone in the medical community that "thinks outside the box." Highly recommend!
Dr. Kass takes time to explain everything. Tells you all your options and doesn't rush you into a decision. Listens to questions and doesn't make you feel rushed. Email information to patient about information discussed during appointment (i.e. articles etc). Very happy I was referred to Dr. Kass.

very professional and hamishy rick k.
Dr. Kass is always very thorough and very personable. I highly recommend him.
It's a pleasure to be a patient of Dr. Kass. He explains everything in detail, discusses options and treats his patients respectfully. The communication and of ease making appointments and follow up reminders is better than any doctor experience I have had in 35+ years living in the Washington area.
Dr. Kass is one of the best ENTs I've seen. He was very thorough and knowledgable. He is a solo practitioner so he does everything by himself which at times results in longer wait times but I think it's worth it. I would highly recommend him and will definitely be going back to him for any other ENT health needs I have.
I really like this doctor and can't understand why anyone would not. He is technically savvy (easy to work with administratively), enjoyable to talk too, very up to date and analytical. Bottom line is that his style should really raise your comfort level.
An ideal appointment. How every patient should always be treated.He was very thorough, patient and has a most pleasant demeanor.
Dr. Kass was friendly, professional and was very helpful. Presented us with many options and took the time to explain the pros and cons of each. Great bedside manner.
Dr. Kass is very thorough and professional.
Highly competent, thoughtful. Exceptionally attentive and generous with time.
I have full faith and trust in Dr. Kass
Dr. Kass was fantastic- very caring and extremely thoughtful.
Doctor Kass, Is outstanding doctor i've never had any problems with him. His bed side manner is very good. I;ve been seeing him for 4 years now. I was his first patient when he first was setting up his practice in Bethesda.
Dr. Kass is very professional. He explained the procedure thoroughly before he started and when he started, he was explaining what he was doing through out.
Wonderful experience - the diagnosis was spot-on and he really took his time to conduct a very thorough examination! Can't recommend him highly enough!!
Very good bedside manner. Spent a lot time explaining my options and listening to me. Highly recommend. Will now be my official "ENT".
Quite knowledgeable and honest. We left the office very pleased with his opinion on what the next step will be for our two year old daughter. We hate the thought of surgery but I'm sure she will enjoy non- red Italian ice. A few sleepless nights wont hurt us. We just want our baby girl healthy. And Dr. Kass was fantastic!
Received us well Acted professionally Performed tests and discussed results Took time to explain findings and answer questions Gave best advice and offered alternatives
Dr. Kass is phenomenal - he always listens to my concerns, helps me better understand my health, and treats me with compassion. Can't recommend him highly enough.
One of the most caring and easy to talk to MD's I been to. Being a physician myself I strive to provide the same exceptional bedside manner, examination and concern. Oh and he is very smart and intuitive. He is stuck with me as a patient for all my ENT needs.
Very good listener & knowledgable Doctor. Highly recommend .
Dr. Kass is an excellent physician! Rectified my initial malady and made me aware of other dormant issues. Quality of life has since improved. Picking him turned out to be the best decision of the year.
Comprehensive examination with treatment focused on chief complaint (ear wax). Very personable. Probably the best medical practitioner we have ever encountered (except for my brother, who was a physician).
Dr. Kass is Thorough, extremely knowledgeable and kind.
An excellent doctor who explains very clearly what is happening and what your options are.
Brilliant guy who spent over an HOUR with me personally in my appointment. He explained every aspect I had questions about and asked tons of questions himself. Really in-depth service and I felt really reassured when I left my appointment. A+
My visits with Dr. Kass were both great. I was able to see him immediately. I was having bad sleep apnea issues and he ordered a home sleep study and for some reason, the planets were aligned I was given the home sleep study device the same day, got the report back the following Tuesday, saw Dr. Kass again on Friday and had my CPAP machine by the following week. That's probably the fastest that has ever happened but it would not have been possible without Dr. Kass and his referral to the Center for Sleep Disorders. Very grateful for him. I would go back for ANY ENT issues.
Dr. Kass took a good deal of time in evaluating and explaining my condition, and suggesting different treatment options. I highly recommend him.
It's a small office but fulfills my needs. Dr. Kass explains everything well and is open to questions.
I have no complaints. Dr. Kass has was personable, and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to friends and family. He is one of the only ENT specialist that I have ever known to have office hours on a Saturday that extend past 12:00 noon. Dr. Kass promptly returned my phone call and answered all questions that I had prior to and during the appointment.
Dr. Kass is awesome. He is professional yet caring and really looks out for the best of his patients. Highly recommended!
Extremely knowledgable and able to explain what was going on with me in a way that I could easily understand.
Amazing doctor. Took the time to explain everything, run tests that no other doctor has before, listen to feedback, and think critically about issues. Can't recommend him enough!
Very thorough. Even though I had to wait a little bit. He was extremely thorough in his H&P and physical exam, plus he cleaned out my ears!!! He also gave me some insight into some of my problems that no provider has EVER DONE!
Dr. Kass shouted at me during the entire visit, despite my repeated requests for him to speak more softly. Because of my acute facial pain disorder, I am very sensitive to noise in general and loud voices in particular. He explained that he confused me with another patient but continued to shout. He insisted that my medical problems, facial pain, imbalance, etc. are related to sleep apnea and he referred me to a sleep disorder specialist. That person could not see me before May of this year. Dr. Kass also prescribed an MRI of the brain but his order, as written, was unacceptable by the radiologist. Repeated calls from GCM to correct this issue were unanswered. I cannot proceed further without his cooperation. Overall the visit was unsatisfactory and a setback in our relationship.
Please send me his email address. Thanks. I NEEDED to email important info.
Dr. Kass was very friendly and knowledgeable. He gave me insight into what my issue might be, and a course of action. He explained things every step of the way, and made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Kass.
Dr. Erik Kass is efficient and solved our problems quickly. He is very attentive and polite. His waiting room is nice and has good reading and good music.
I am impressed with his ability to listen and communicate his observations and interpretations. He is friendly but efficient at the same time. His business is very disciplined considering that physically his is a one-man operation. There is no assistant. When you are in his office, the only person present is Dr. Kass.
Extremely knowledgable and professional. Very informative consultation. Highly recommended.
Dr. Kass is an amazing physician with amazing skills. I've never experienced a more satisfactory medical visit, nor such genuine concern for a patient as a human being and not just another patient.
He is excellent. Very knowledgable and patient. Dr. Kass also educated me and gave me much useful suggestion. Will highly recommend him!
Dr. Katz was there to greet me in person which was a pleasant surprise. He was kind, asked many questions, and gave very thorough explanations of each of the options available to help me. He is very knowledgable about sleep apnea and the innumerable health problems that can be directly linked to this issue. I feel good about my choice to see Dr. Katz, and look forward to my next appointment as hearing his treatment plan.
Very thorough and knowledgeable Doctor. I'm glad I chose him for his excellent care.
Dr. Kass is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. He is able to synthesize all of the details you give him along with his expertise in order to develop the best treatment plan. He is also incredibly kind and empathetic. He will spend as much time as you need with him to ensure that he had heard everything and that you understand and agree with the treatment plan. I most highly recommend Dr. Kass to anyone with ENT problems.
Dr. Kass is very personable yet professional. My visit was more than a routine visit, it was an extraordinary learning experience. Krass is VERY knowledgeable in his field and is able to break down his diagnosis in plain terms w/ drawings and more. I feel comfortable recommending him to anyone.
My visit was excellent.
Dr Kass is absolubtly superb in every way...He is an expert in his specialty; he treats his patients with the best of care. He takes whatever time is needed to do thorough exam, explaining the diagnosis so we can understand it, and treatment that is always right.
Dr Kass is a brilliant doctor- knowledgeable, experienced and carrying.
This is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. If you're looking for a doctor who does their best to find the root of your problem and goes the extra mile to look at the bigger picture other than just what he/she is skilled in, you've found the right one! Dr. Kass has been truly a blessing with helping me figure out my issue. He also takes the time to explain every detail and answer ever question. He never rushes and makes me feel confident in his practice.
I saw Dr. Kass for a basic (but painful) ear infection. His examination was thorough and his treatment was effective. I would trust him to handle more complicated issues should I ever have them. Easy bedside manner and took his time educating me.
Very nice doctor, very knowledgeable. Takes the time you need to explain the situation and plan next steps. Highly recommended!
The best...no condescending or rushed manner typical of most doctors.
Great doctor! Probably the best specialist I have ever seen. I am so happy I found Dr. Kass!
I've been to him several times and he is an outstanding doctor in every dimension.
Always excellent. Very knowledgeable and caring. By far the best doctor I've ever seen.
Very professional and carin Doctor
He was awesome! Very informative!
Dr. Kass takes the time to carefully diagnose a problem and explain the diagnosis. His bedside manner is very good. Dr. Kass is a courteous, professional and thorough physician.
Excellent work and a friendly guy as well. Recommended.
Dr. Kass treats me as if I were a family member. He is highly intelligent and knowledgeable, but doesn't talk over your head when explaining things. He takes 100% interest in your case/illness, and does everything he can to make you well. Always kind and professional.
Great doc. Explained the problem, the causes and the treatment options. Told me to review the information he was giving me and take my time to decide what worked for me, no pressure. Answered all my questions, and made me feel I was being seen by someone who knows what they are doing. I would refer others to him, and will be taking my son to him soon.
Never met a doctor that dedicates so much time to an appointment to make sure his patient is taken care of. He was very thorough in my checkup, and answered all my questions.
Honestly one of the best doctors I have ever met. Very thoughtful, knowledgeable and kind. His care of my family member has made a miraculous (yes, really) difference.
I will go back... Great guy!
Dr. Kass was fantastic. Extremely thorough and detail-oriented, he took the time to explain and show me via video his diagnosis and the rationale behind it. This was one of the very best experiences I've ever had.
It was hard for my mom to wait as long as she did but worth it in the end. Dr. Kass gives such a thorough exam and seems to really care about the patients 'whole person'.
Dr. Kass is an amazing doctor! He is incredibly thorough, patient, and detailed in his analysis of your condition and in the feedback he gives. He's worked with both my mother and I, and each time we've seen Dr. Kass we've been so grateful we had. He takes time to diagnose and solve issues that other doctors would write off as just a "common cold" or "allergies", and even sends out detailed follow up emails to ensure that you have understood and processed all the information he provides in his diagnoses and treatment options. 10/10 would recommend!
I really appreciated the time he spent with me. He was very thorough in obtaining my medical history and explaining everything. I will definitely continue seeing him even though his office is almost an hour from my home.
Very professional. Great bedside manner. Very accommodating. Excellent doctor!! We recommend Dr. Kass to all our family. Susie N.
Dr Kass was able to diagnose quickly and perform a procedure to help remedy the problem I was having. A treatment was prescribed and it vastly improved my condition for the 2nd visit. Dr Kass communicates very well verbally, non-verbally and in writing. I would recommend Dr Kass to anyone that needs an ENT specialist.
Came here for a second opinion but ended up switching to this doctor; very informative and helpful!
He is great. I had to wait for a little longer than usual, but it seemed the patient in front of me was really suffering. I have been there (in terms of sinus suffering) so I didn't mind waiting. I recommend Dr. Kass to everyone I know.
Dr. Kass was great, he took his time examining my 8 year old son's broken nose, keeping him calm and chatting during the exam. I felt his recommendation for further treatment was honest and easy to understand.
Dr. Kass is by far the best ENT physician you will every find. I couldn't believe that one could receive such expert and caring attention by a physician in today's rush, rush world of medical treatment.
This is a GREAT doctor!! He is very good as an ENT and also very personable!!
Professional, caring and explains your condition very accurately.
Amazing thorough and informative!
Visit to see Dr. Erik Kass was very succesfull. Dr. Kass is very knowlegeble and a good specialist.
Dr Kass was great.
Dr. Kass is very detail oriented with the exam. He also explained the result thoroughly to address my concern.
He definitely knows his specialty. I highly recommend him. Just wish he was easier to contact or leave a message for.
The man's a genius.......its just unfortunate for him he's not really publicized like he should be. He's the most innovative doctor I've been around and he gives you HOPE... and that's huge.
Great doc who focused on listening to my symptoms, asking precise questions, and then performed a diagnostic exam using a small camera. He spent nearly 15m reviewing the film with me and pointing out observations, and left me with a series of options I could weigh. Excellent, consultative manner and would highly recommend.
One of the kindest, smartest and most effective doctors I've seen. Awesome experience - bed side manned is terrific. Does excellent job of explaining options and treatments. Home run
Very professional, courteous, and business like. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
A very pleasant visit
Dr. Kass is a great ENT and his office is conveniently located.
A friend at work recommended Dr. Kass to me. I have never found a truly great doctor but did today. I couldn't believe the attention he paid to everything I said and how fast he was at figuring out my issue. Love love loved him!
Very professional and comforting. Listened well to the issues I had been having without any judgement. Suggested certain courses of action without pressuring.
Dr. Kass is amazing. He diagnosed a problem I have been living with for years and did a pretty simple office procedure to correct it. This minor change has improved my sleep, helped me to breathe easier and helped me to eliminate a persistent cough I've had for years. He recently helped me to recover from a ear infection I developed while scuba diving on my honeymoon, which was the reason for this appointment. He's very easy to get an appointment with and is very prompt. Really, no waiting. I can't recommend him enough.
He was amazing. I was seen very quickly, he was extremely friendly and pleasant. He actually took the time to answer every question I asked without being condescending or rude. I will definitely be seeing him again.
He embarrassed me in front of another patient and then proceeded to do a complete turnaround on what he was treating me when I questioned his office procedures or lack thereof. He was rude and arrogant.
Dr. Kass is a one man show, but is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything. Not pushy with any procedures and allows plenty of time to consider options.
Wonderful experience and professional advice. The best ENT Doctor I have ever visited!
Dr. Kass is amazing. He has been helping me problem solve my daughter's various sinus and congestion concerns. He has a great bedside manner and listens to his patients. We will keep coming back.
Mr. Kass was very friendly and knowledgeable. Explained everything he was doing and why, and was quick to the point. Also did not try to push any unnecessary examinations or treatments on me.
Patiently listened to all of my symptoms and things I wanted to share and then also patiently explained everything that I was curious or nervous about.
This was frankly the best doctor's appointment I've ever been to in my life! My son was the actual patient, and Dr. Kass did an incredibly thorough and thoughtful diagnostic conversation, had excellent equipment in the office that enabled him to do some video scoping and still imaging on site - and then showed us everything and explained every detail of what he saw. He provided multiple treatment options, the pros and cons of each, and was incredibly thorough and kind, and entertaining! I only wish my regular doctor was this good!!!!
Dr. Kass was very thorough and kind.
It is literally THE best medical experience you can have. He is like a best friend who is really good at what he does!!!
Dr. Kass is the best ENT we've gone to. My kids have not received better care. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Kass is definitely a little different. It's only him. He doesn't ha e front office help. He does it. That said, he's very focused and gets it done. I like him.
Very professional and educated me on everything
Small but pleasant office, parking can get expensive but this is Bethesda.
Dr. Kass is an excellent analyst and care giver. My issue was complex and he was the only ENT of three that I really felt comfortable and trusted. The outcome I experienced working with Dr. Kass was very positive. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat.
He is very knowledgeable. He listens to you and has a great deal of understanding about sleep disorders. I highly recommend him
Great service and very professional. Explained everything very clear.
Dr. Kass is a really nice guy who is very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend him.
Dr Kass is very informed. He gives you his full attention and listens to what you say about the problem you have. He takes time to examine all aspects of the problem area before making any assessment. I feel confident in his abilities. Bethesda Resident
Dr. Kass helped me almost instantly with one of my issues (aural) and I feel that I am in very good hands with the rest of my current health concerns. He was very complete in his diagnosis and explained everything to me, without any feeling of being rushed, even though other patients were waiting. He's a terrific doctor!
Dr. Kass is very knowledgeable and willing to answer all of your questions.
Excellent. I would highly recommend that anyone considering getting a sleep study see him first.
Great doctor! Addressed all my concerns and went an extra mile in giving me broad overview of my ENT health. I highly recommend him.
Great follow-up procedure with Dr. Kass. It went exactly as he decribed it. I can tell aleady that the ITR treatment was effective since I breath much better only a couple of days after having it done.
Dr. Kass is personable, analytical, explains your situation and next steps, if you have any, to you and very well. I also like the fact that he is approachable and uses technology to make the administrative process efficient. What else could one want from a doctor
Dr. Kass is extremely professional and cordial. He spent enough time to explain and diagnose. I felt very comfortable and, no doubt, would highly recommend him.
I have been to many ENTs in many parts of the country, and Dr. Kass, hands down is the best ENT I have dealt with. Thorough, explaining everything in plain language, he is thoughtful, articulate and balanced in his diagnosis. Being new to the area and having seen him for the first time, I was thoroughly impressed and will be recommending him to my friends and taking my family to him. While you might have to wait, it is well worth it.
Dr. Kass was exceptionally patient and thorough during my visit. He took the time to answer my numerous questions and provided comprehensive explanations for my multiple ENT issues. I would highly, highly recommend him and plan to see him again if needed. Thank you Dr. Kass!
Excellent, excellent, knowledgeable, not rushed, answered each question thoroughly with enough time for follow-up questions. Highly recommend Dr. Eric Kass!
Highly knowledgeable, helpful and supportive. Dr. Kass takes the time to listen and to get thoughtful suggestions and advice.
Great bed side manner extremely professional and through. I personally liked the ease of setting up an appointment and use of being able to show you immediately via video what he was seing. Dr. Kass did a great job of explaining what was going on with me and the options. I would definitely recommed Dr. Kass.
Dr. Kass is a one man show, so you will get his undivided attention. He has video recording and will show you what he sees and explain everything that is going on. He is knowledgeable and thorough. The parking arrangement is convenient.
He is so knowledgeable and so motivated to help the patient. He explained everything so well. I really felt he was there to support me thru the process of dealing with the problem. I really wish more doctors would take this approach.
Dr. Kass is extremely knowledgeable about ENT matters. He takes a "wholistic" approach which means that he is equally concerned with whatever is going on not only in the rest of your body that could impact ENT matters, but what things in your life and environment might also be impacting you. In my case, he quickly ascertained that my sleep problems could very well be linked to things that I had taken for granted as "part of life" such as breathing with my mouth due to partial nasal blockage and restricted throat opening. This doctor is an A+. The parking is EXTREMELY challenging, so make sure you know where to park if the tiny lot across the SIDE street (NOT Old G'twn Rd) is full!
Perfect in every category and very knowledgeable in his expertise!
Very thorough explanations and excelling interpersonal skills, great experience.
I appreciated Dr. Kass' bedside manner and the organization of his office. He was patient and thorough and took the time to explain his findings upon examination and answer all of my questions.
Always thorough and kind!
Very helpful and very knowledgable. Fixed my ear problem right away and was very warm and friendly.
Dr. Kass is a phenomenal doctor - he really involved me in his assessment and treatment of my ear infection, explained everything to me very thoroughly. And best of all, he is kind and lighthearted without that taking away from his professionalism. Highly recommend!
My visit with Dr. Kass was great! He spent a lot of time getting to know my family medical history, as well as my own medical history. He explained the different procedures he did and had a tactful way of delivering feedback, ideas, and next steps. I definitely recommend Dr. Kass!
Dr. Kass was thorough, candid and direct. I left his office with a much clearer understanding of my condition and the most effective ways to treat it.
He was incredibly patient and took his time. My Dad is quite ill and not the easiest to treat (as a retired Doc he is by nature a pain in the butt) ...Dr. Kass was awesome and incredibly kind! Dad's hearing is back in order and I am so grateful!!!
(1) I had a severe reaction to the medication prescribed and this physician did not return my calls or emails. (2) He said he bills "aggressively" and he certainly did. (3) He sent a PayPal invoice (this is a solo practice, no secretary) and later another with 50% discounts. I learned recently in an Insurance Billing seminar that this is consider fraud, i.e. billing more than what you intend to collect.
Dr. Kass seems to run his entire practice himself, but it seems to work since there was no delay or chaos. I'm guessing it's due to him scheduling enough time between each patient. He seemed knowledgeable and thorough, and I actually recommended him to my dad afterwards, who also had a great experience. Parking was a bit confusing in that region, so I'd recommend allowing a few more minutes to figure that out.
Wonderful! Thorough, exam explained in detail. Allayed my concerns. Also provided valuable info via e-mail.
dr kass is extremely competent, attentive to details and sympathetic to the patient. he explains his recommendations very well and makes sure patient understands her options. i highly recommend dr kass.
I came with my 15 yr old son who was the patient. Dr. Kass spoke directly to him throughout the entire visit, explaining terms and procedures, providing him specific pictures and illustrations, and allowing time for any questions he had. My son was totally at ease, happy with the feedback provided, and was able to make his own medical decisions based on Dr. Kass' information. The best part was when he told my son that he didn't want him to make a specific decision about any procedures while still sitting in the office. Instead, he sent my son a few articles and web links for him to research more on his own. Ultimately, my son is going through with everything Dr. Kass suggested. I truly appreciate his calm demeanor and treatment of my son as a person and patient instead of just sharing information with his mom.
Great doctor, really explained everything well and helped me understand what I needed to know.
He's a one-man show, but very efficient and very informative. He had some very good suggestions and solutions for my problems.
He is absolutely fantastic. I trust him 100%.
My first time with this Dr. he took the time to explain what he was going to do, and also video and played back my exam to me which was a huge plus since it was a noise bleed. Very professional and he is my ENT.
Dr. Kass is excellent. My only complaint is that he is an ENT, so I can't use him when I break my toe or have the flu. He is definitely the person you want to treat you and your family; you will never have to worry about whether you got the best advice, because if you see him, you will, and you will know it.
The nose, ear, and throat exam went very well. It was quick and informational.
Dr. Kass is nothing short of FABULOUS. He is excellent in his profession, and I recommend everyone I know to him. He understands patient's needs, and ensures you have everything you need to get better and stay better. I wish every doctor had his excellence of service for their patients.
Great doctor who is obviously concerned about the well being of his patients. Fixed my problem and recommended solutions.
Very pleasant to talk to, very comprehensive in history-taking and exam, open to and answered questions.
Dr Kass was very professional and easy to talk to. He explained his findings and my options thoroughly. I would highly recommend the practice to friends and family.
He was thorough and did an excellent job.
He is an extraordinary ENT specialist
This was my first visit. The doctor had an emergency which made for the long wait time, but as a result he waived the co-pay which I thought was very respectful of my time as a patient. He was worth the wait !!!
spends time with his patient and explained everything well from start to finish.
Dr. Lass was super easy to talk to and very thorough. He dispelled some of my worries and was extremely helpful with contact information for further procedures.
Superb, professional, and high quality care. Dr. Kass is insightful and exceptionally knowledgeable.
Dr. Kass is excellent. He is smart, skilled and caring. I Would definitely recommend him!
Dr Kass is very good. He explains the problems clearly in the way I understand. He has been my daughters ent for over two years now and will continue to be so in the future.
I thought he was very profession and thorough. And very had a very nice manner. I would recommend him to my friends.
Best Doctor Ever! You always start feeling better even before you even leave the office. He listens carefully and explains his findings. I would recommend Dr. Kass to everyone.
Highly knowledgeable physician who takes his time to listen to the patient and to conduct the exam. He does not just provide a treatment plan, but presents options and listens to the patient's concerns and preferences.
Dr. Kass is great. He has excellent bedside manner and he takes the time explain the diagnosis and treatment. He is simply wonderful and I highly recommend him.
Would be great if Zocdoc have the functionality to send patient a text that the doctor is running late so that we can come in later to the doctor's office rather than having to wait in the waiting room. All the doctor would have to do presumably to inform zocdoc how many minutes late he is running.
Very attentive, personal service. Successful treatment. Highly recommended.
Disclaimer: I never write reviews (especially negative ones), but I don't want someone else going through the headache that I am going through now. Overall: He seems like a good doctor when you meet him, but he is IMPOSSIBLE to get in touch with!!!!!! Patient Beware! Making an appointment through zocdoc was easy and when I met him, he was actually very nice and thorough. After my appointment, he prescribed a scan of my nose/sinuses but never sent his notes to the insurance company so they were unable to grant the request. After SEVERAL (2 weeks worth) failed communication attempts by both the insurance company and myself, I eventually gave up and found another doctor. (I even had another appointment scheduled with him and couldn't even get in touch with him to cancel the appointment). I eventually ended up emailing him (wasn't even sure if it was his email) and he cancelled the appointment without ever bothering to call me back. Now, 8 months later I am receiving an invoice from him (through paypal nonetheless) to pay for visit (because it didn't meet the deductible at the time). While I'm happy to pay it, I'm noticing a discrepancy with the billing and would like him to answer a question I have. Again, when I call him there is NO answer!!!! Seems like a nice guy when you meet him, but the fact that he has no secretary and literally does not respond to his patient's phone calls or questions is a not acceptable in my book.
Dr. Kass was very thoughtful and thorough. I really liked that he recorded the scopes of the ear and nose and then walked me through them on his monitor afterward.
I was surprised that Dr. Kass is the only person in the office at first. But the professionalism and service I received was by far one of the best experiences with a physician. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kass and have sent family members to him already.
The time Dr Kass took with me, is how you imagine all doctors appointments should be. I was so impressed with his bedside manner, patience, and general listening skills.
Loved my visit with Dr. Kass, he listened to my concerns and really cared about the issues I have going on. I left his office feeling relieved that he was going to be able to treat me and correct my problems
Dr. Kass is very well experienced and an extremely friendly doctor. I highly recommend!
Very professional, knowledgable and direct. He's definitely my preferred ENT doc from now on.
Dr. Kass is amazing and very thorough. Highly recommend him. Very efficient, great bedside manner and listens carefully. He explained everything in detail and patiently and was very personable.
A doctor who spends time and actually listens to you.
Very thorough first exam. Dr Kass thinks outside the box when symptoms don't fit standard diagnoses and is able to offer treatment suggestions based on his considerable experience. I was very impressed.
Very impressive guy. Modest operation but he is very attentive and a good listener. He took his time to explain the issues that I was dealing with. He was clear and patient and thorough.
Dr. Kass is one of the few doctors I have ever had who is interested in probing every possible diagnosis for any unusual symptom. He has a conversation with the patient; he does not speak in a dismissive tone; he does not lecture; he is happy to glean information with the patient about his or her medical issues, how he or she responds to different treatments and meds, etc,. and THANKS the patient for his or her input and suggestions because he sees this info as potentially useful in helping others. He's a mensch.
Dr. Kass is legitimately one of my favorite doctors ever. What an incredibly nice and knowledgable guy! I love going to see him because he is always so clear, polite and warm. If you're having issues with snoring or breathing or whatever, I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kass.
Dr. Kass explains everything in understandable terms before proceeding treatment with a kind and comforting approach. He is personable, professional, and operates at an excellent level of competency. I highly recommend Dr. Kass.
Dr. Kass was very professional and took a significant amount of time to review symptoms and work toward a diagnosis of the issues I was encountering. Unlike other physicians I had previously met with, I got the sense that he was genuinely interested in detecting and resolving problems, rather than simply rushing me through. I did have some issues with billing, and felt that it would have been beneficial to have a discussion of what procedures would incur extra charges before those procedures were performed. I am happy with the very good quality of services I received, but felt I could have benefitted from a discussion on what the bill would be.
Had a very thorough, professional appointment. Would definitely recommend this doctor to friends and other family members. Especially appreciated the ease of booking the initial appointment.
I've worked with Dr. Kass for a while now, and he continues to impress me with his commitment, engagement and knowledge. Highly recommended for anyone interested in speaking with a doctor who understands the big picture.
Very thorough and professional.
Very thorough and spent a lot of time with me.
Really thorough doctor. Took time to examine me and give help me weigh my options.
He is an incredible doctor, very bright, takes time to explain everything and answers all questions, very personable. He worked at NIH, and is very knowledgable about the latest research and treatments. I was very impressed and already recommended him to a friend. He is great, you will like him!
Dr. Kass is always amazing. The best doctor I've ever had!!
Dr. Kass lays out the issue concisely and in plain language. He gives his patients multiple options and informs them each expected outcome.
very pleasant, professional, responsive
It was a great experience and he spent enough time to explain diagnoses and treadment for it.
He's very approachable, listens to everything, friendly,had interesting ideas, thinks outside of the box.
The appointment was right on time without waiting. Dr. Kass was very nice and treated my son pretty accurately. I highly recommended this clinic. And thanks to Dr. Kass!
Dr. Kass was very friendly and informative. He was able to see me right away. It was also helpful that his office is open on Saturdays.
Dr. Kass is very thorough and caring. Appointments are easy to get. He is very well accomplished in terms of his clinical experience and education.
Very professional and knowledgeable! He has great bedside manners and he is very very helpful! He eased my worries and I'm now on a path to fixing all my problems. Highly recommend this doctor.
Dr. Kass was attentive, thorough in analysis of my situation, offered the diagnosis in clear lay terms using examples, gave various options for treatment, and sent additional information with advice and options after my visit. The time and consideration he provided on my first visit is definitely an anomaly in these times measured production line type patient services.
Dr. Kass was exceptional. His bedside manner and professionalism are breaths of fresh air. I felt comfortable and well informed after the visit. I'm pleased with the care plan and will continue to see Dr. Kass as well as recommend him to others.
Great service very professional and take care problem right away
Excellent visit. Dr Kass is very thorough. He takes his time and explains everything. Highly recommended.
Dr. Kass was excellent! He asked questions, took the time to find out my history, probed scenarios, and then did an amazing job in his office diagnosing my situation. I highly recommend him.
I suffered terrible pain in my ear for 5 days although I visited 2 other doctors. Fortunately, my grand daughter visited Dr. Kass recently and told me that this is only doctor you should visit. She was right, Dr. Kass immediately got in the problem and worked hard for more than hour to treat it. Now pain is going down.
Very thorough and professional. Best ENT I have ever seen.
Dr. Kass was very thorough. He provided a few options for treatment and provided an insightful diagnosis.
Wow, was I lucky to find Dr.Kass! I finally got an answer for something that was bothering me for a year. Super convenient appointment time and very, very knowledgeable doctor who really cares about his patients. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. THANK YOU, DR. KASS!!
Dr. Kass is also the receptionist which was a bit surprising but nice. The only wait time was just having my ID and insurance card scanned in. He is not pushy and he takes the time to explain my issues and what options I had. He enjoys his job.
Dr. Kass is one of the best doctors I have ever had. He takes time to listen and explain things simply and you do not feel rushed. I think if you show up on time, you can expect that and top notch care at every visit. The office in Bethesda is calm and serene. One thing that I think is excellent and have found extremely useful, helpful and time saving is the extent to which Dr. Kass and the practice makes use of technology. Its much easier to complete forms in the comfort of your own home, well in advance of your appointment, than having to arrive 30 to 60 minutes before your first appointment just to fill out a bunch of papers in legible handwriting on a clunky clipboard. Text and email reminders and confirmations and appt. checkers online are great too.
Very nice guy and very professional. I also really appreciate his use of technology in the practice. Only issue is that he has no staff on site and therefore does his own administrative work, which increases wait times.
Dr. Kass was thorough and explained every aspect of the exam. I would recommend him.
Dr. Kass is the epitome of a superb doctor: not only is he clearly an expert in his field, he takes the time to explain everything in layman's terms. I wish every doctor was like him -- brilliant, and with a wonderful "bedside" manner.
Dr. Kass was excellent. He was quite warm and courteous, and he gave me plenty of time to discuss my situation. I highly recommend him.
I have already recommended him to my friends and my visit was just today! He took tons of time with me. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions. I would recommend him HIGHLY!! (and I generally do not bother writing reviews about my Doctors because I am rarely so pleased with the service, attention, and care!). I feel lucky to have him as my doctor.
Very happy to find a doctor with a different approach to my health problems instead of meds that do not seem to work. ??
I have seen many doctors for my cough over the past 2 years. I was either misdiagnosed, treated like I didn't matter or told they had no more information for me. Dr. Kass is the first doctor who took the time to listen to me as a human being and was genuinely interested in helping me. He is a man of true character, who makes you feel like you are important and gave me a diagnosis that resonated with me for the first time in years. He answers your questions and explains in detail what his findings are. He is a god send and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thank you from my heart Dr. Kass!
Very good. He took time to explain all of my options. We were the last appointment but he stayed as long as we needed to answer all of our questions. Great service. Highly recommend him.
It was a pleasure to meet Dr. Kass. I was late getting to my appointment evently when i arrived Dr. Kass made me feel at ease. He was thorough with my exam. He listen to my complain He's personable. He is very knowledgeable in his field. He offered many suggestion how to prove my allergy. He was quick and professional all his suggestion. Thank you, Victoria
Very patient and kind doctor. He provided me with a very thorough explanation of my problem (a problem he probably has to explain on a daily basis) and took very detailed notes/images.
EXCELLENT ENT doctor. I've had a nagging ETD issue these last 6 months. My PCP, ENT, and allergist doctors were quick to prescribe me nasal corticosteroid sprays and that was it. I definitely knew something else was wrong so after much extensive research, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Kass. After two appointments, we concluded that my issue stems from a sleep disturbance and a lack of REM sleep. I can't tell you how great it feels to know the actual cause of my illness. All thanks to Dr. Kass. He's experienced and very thorough with his diagnosis.
He was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Dr. Kass was very courteous and professional. He explained everything to me in a concise and understandable way. I would recommend Dr. Kass to anyone with ear, nose, or throat issues.
I have never had such a good experience seeing a specialist! Everything was very smooth from scheduling my appointment to the consultation. I was able to get an appointment extremely quickly which was wonderful. I have seen ENTs before in my life but never had such a comprehensive exam. He was incredibly thorough and identified some issues (and was to remedy them) outside of my initial presenting problem that brought me in!! I will continue to see him and will suggest that my friends/family do the same because a good doctor is hard to find!!
Excellent knowledge and patient education. Dr. Kass spent lots of time explaining everything in the exam and the treatment alternatives I could consider. His use of photos and videos of my own anatomy were instructive. Very impressed.
Very thorough, state-of-the-art and professional.
Dr. Kass asked many questions, was a good listener, and took the time to explain the potential problem to me in great detail. Had an old-school feel about it, but in a good way. The office is just him so it is a little unusual that way, but I would recommend, especially if you like booking you own appointments (as I do.)
He is the 3rd ENT that I've seen in a year and I'm completely satisfied. So happy to not get another prescription for antibiotic(s) shoved in my face.
Dr. Kass is very kind, patient, informative, & I have to say easy on the eyes. He was very professional & thorough. I'll definitely be referring him to all of my friends.
Dr. Kass was so helpful and informative. He addressed all of my questions and concerns with very detailed explanations of possible causes and possible treatments. I especially appreciated his warm and thoughtful manner.
Not the nicest office, and Dr. Kass is a one man shop (he was the receptionist too), but it was really one of the better doctor appointments I have been to. He was very thorough and talked me through everything. He was very good at explaining his recommendations, and why he was making them. He also walked me through what other doctors might say and why they might diagnose me that way etc. The appointment took longer than expected, but it was because he spent so much time with me explaining everything. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kass to anyone looking for a good knowledgeable ENT.
Great doc great patient care
I was impressed with his general manner, good questions and suggestions.
Very thorough, and took time to explain everything. Most doctor's offices make you feel rushed, and this was not the case. I now have more insight into my condition, and I feel confident that things are going to improve.
Dr. Kass is one of the best doctors I have ever known. He is very accommodating and professional. He really listens to his patients and shows empathy. I highly recommend him!
Professional and makes you feel comfortable. Cauterization went smoothly and painlessly (due to chronic nosebleeds). Performed a full exam without request (appreciated) and was made aware that I should be tested for sleep apnea given my sleeping habits and the structural differences in my airway passages/throat. Very nice doctor! Definitely recommend!
Great doctor! Very knowledgable, competent, detail oriented and considerate. Highly recommend to everyone.
Excellent physician/ clinician. Listens carefully. Gives 100% attention.
Dr. Kass was very attentive, analyzed my symptoms and diagnosed my condition with relative ease. Although he came to a conclusion quickly, he was extremely thorough in his diagnosis and explained how he came to his conclusion. He made me feel at ease and provided me with all treatment options. Would highly recommend Dr. Kass and will visit again if ever in need of an ENT.
Excellent. Very thorough. All options explained well.
excellent and very patient! !
Very professional, thorough, and knowledgable. He spent an hour and a half with me and took the time to explain the background of all of my concerns. Best ENT I've ever been to hands down.
I thought Dr. Kass was an excellent doctor! I would HIGHLY recommend him to friends and family. I was a bit concerned in the beginning about how he had no staff and no one answering the phone, but...he proved that he is quite capable of giving great service and care while working alone.
he explained everything in details
Very knowledgeable and easy to speak with. Excellent listener. Dr. Kass is willing to share the latest information with patients. He always takes his time and never pushes me to make decisions right away.
He is very nice and knowledgable on the issue with answers to help and solve the problem.
Erik is a very professional provider and personable. I was very impressed!
Evaluate the illness correctly and Humble and very co operative
He takes his time to explain everything and answer all the questions. Always available to answer my follow up questions by emails.
Excellent listener, thorough, well informed, and patient.
I was very satisfied!
I really liked him --he took time and was interested in your overall conditon
After a history of encounters with "too busy" doctors who rush you through the appointment and try to diagnose you without listening to your full concerns, I was pleasantly surprised by Dr. Kass' approach. Despite my ailment being rather minor in comparison to what he must treat in others, he gave me his full attention, was respectful and took time to explain what he was doing and how the ear, nose and throat anatomy worked. I was also very impressed with his paperless office and the variety of technology-driven tools he employs. Would definitely recommend!
He took time and was patient with my questions, and asked if I had questions.
Dr. Kass is an excellent clinician and problem solver. His evaluation of my problem was thorough and he listened carefully to my complicated history. I trust his judgement and care.
I think that he is an excellent doctor. I will not hesitate to highly recommend him to my friends.
Dr. Kass solved a problem I have struggled with for longer than I care to admit. Will never go to anyone else if I have a choice. Have already recommended him to several friends.
Extremely thorough with excellent bedside manner. I learned a lot!
I was very pleased with his calmness and the time he spent with me. He made sure to find out everything that I was having problems with, and laid out a logical plan to figure out what's causing my health issues. My only slight dissatisfaction is that I need to contact him and I don't have an email address for him, and his phone mailbox is full (admittedly, after just one attempt. I know that he is his own secretary and doesn't have time to check phone messages all day long). Overall, I would definitely recommend Dr. Kass.
I would recommend him to anyone (and will). He was thoughtful, thorough, explained why the treatment I'd received elsewhere hadn't worked and was careful not to cause any pain when he worked on my very infected ears. His treatment plan makes sense and is manageable.
Excellent doctor. Worthy the wait.
very knowledgeable, very thorough, explained everything clearly. I am recommending him to my family and friends.
Dr. Kass is very professional, highly knowledgeable and a great listener. He spent more than an hour evaluating my condition and I was highly satisfied with the outcome. Feel lucky to be able to find such a great Dr. Highly recommend to anyone with Ear, Nose or Throat issues.
Don't be scared away by the fact that his office does not have a secretary; his is not a fly-by-night practice, he just prefers to embrace technology. What I most liked about Dr. Kass practice is the personal attention my son received. Dr Kass doesn't have 20 patient rooms that he spends 5 minute in each; he has one room and he spent 30 minutes or more with my son. My son had a recurring case of strep (two previous rounds of antibiotic had failed to get rid of the infection). Dr. Kass was passionate to find a solution, and took an approach he said most doctors fail to consider. It worked, and two years later (as I write this review), the infection has not returned. Highly recommended.
He was incredible. I really enjoyed him. I will use him for all of my ENT needs.
He needs to work on hiring assistant to get things going while he see paients. It takes too long to get in. Never on time. He tries up sell instead of focusing on the issue at hand. He is very through and professional.
Thoughtful and professional as always
Dr. Kass was very thorough and professional. There was almost no wait time. The only downside is that the parking is a little tricky, but once you find it, it's really no big deal.
Dr Kass is a really nice doctor, a human one, which is rare nowadays. I went for a ear pain. He took the time to explain me everything in details, which I highly appreciated. Really nice and professional. I would recommand him.
Fantastic excellent caring doctor. Very very impressed
Excellent doctor all around.
Dr. Kass took his time to explain me everything, he was super patient with my son who almost destroyed his office. He was also very flexible with us, we changed and rescheduled 3 times within 1 day.
I thought he was very professional. He gave me advice on how to help prevent my son from getting an ear infection.
Dr Erik is excellent with explaining, using technology, and suggesting next steps.
I would VERY highly recommend Dr. Kass. He was so patient, thoughtful and kind. You don't encounter many physicians anymore who give you the type of personalized care that Dr. Kass provides. The technology in his office is stellar. You definitely will see from the "inside out" ,in real-time, what may be causing any issues you're experiencing. I am recommending him to my husband who suffers from sleep issues too, most likely related to an ENT issue.
Thorough, addressed some items other ENT's do not, and gave helpful advice. Took and shared photos of ear canal and nasal passages to explain his assessment.
Intelligent, listens and the only Doctor that ordered a MRI to figure out I had Optic Neuritis. I thought I had a sinus problem but I was actually losing my eyesight. Other doctors shrugged off my concerns and didn't listen. He is a one man shop and no bells and whistles. If you need lots to staff and fluff than this is not the office for you. If you want a caring intelligent Doctor who listens and gets to the root of the problem even when it's not in his field then look no further!
Wow he was able to show me what my problem is and help diagnose me. Seeing is believing and he shows you the facts.
Knowledgeable, friendly, thorough, patient... I've had appointments with Dr. Kass since February and had last follow up on 5/8. I went in with a nose that I could rarely breath through (had it for years so I was a mouth breather) and after a simple and painless outpatient procedure (turbinate reduction) with progress follow ups, Dr. Kass made it so I can breathe through my nose every day! I've been impressed with his ability to explain the issues so I understood exactly what the problems were, the details of the procedure and how to care for my nose after.
He was great! Uses computer technology and explains what he is doing & why! Showed me the information & explained the treatment he recommended. Great experience.
It seems that it helped to overcome my tonsil problem in the short run as well as hoping that longer term solutions could have been figured out.
Very competent & professional. Was running behind on patients when I walked in, but made an effort to transition quickly between sessions to get me in, and stayed late to answer all my questions and make detailed recommendations.
He is a very thorough doctor he explained and showed me more in this visit than I have ever experienced in any other doctor visit to an ENT Great location and virtually no wait!
I was impressed with his knowledge and understanding of my symptoms. Also helped me to consider other methods of beneficial treatment. We'll see how it all turns out- Only had one appointment so far. But I will go back.
First experience with an ENT specialist was great! Takes his time and is very thorough and informative. Was able to schedule a follow up procedure with ease!
I wish every doctor put the amount of time, thoughtfulness, and detail into an exam as Dr. Kass did. He gave me some great insights into my sinus problems and some really practical advice for improving them.
Dr. Kass explains the diagnosis thoroughly, truly listens, and asks insightful questions. He uses cameras and other techie devices, which is impressive. He is efficient, conscientious, and professional. I originally picked his office for the convenient hours, but am happy all-around.
He was extremely through and spent a lot of time explaining everything!mhe is great!
Excellent Doctor who was thorough and professional but also warm and a nice sense of humor. Would absolutely recommend with the highest regard.
He was very informative and clear with in diagnosis. He made sure my questions were answered and always listened.
He is a great doctor!
It's rare to see a practitioner go solo these days, but after your first visit you will quickly see why he has done so- for his patients. An incredibly competent physician with none of the ego or void personality that you will encounter in other docs. Expect him to spend ample time with you, address all your questions with no rush, and provide excellent medical care. I've been seeing dr kass for over a year now at the Bethesda location and have always left feeling like he's got my back
Dr. Kass was incredible with my 3 year old son. He made the visit very easy, and took care of him very well.
Very knowledgeable doctor. Highly recommend!
He was awesome and came highly recommend.
Great physician and nice guy.
Loved my time with Dr. Kass! He was extremely thorough, and attentive and got to the root of my issue whene others had not. I highly recommend him and if I ever have any other problems I will be going to him first!
A very good experience. I met Dr. Kass to get a second opinion for my nose problem. I really impressed with his knowledge. He analyzed my problem deliberately and provided me with a very professional and honest opinion. One of the best visit I ever had with a doctor.
It went very well. Dr. Kass is thorough and explained my condition to me in a manner that was concise and understandble. I sincerely appreciated his attention to detail.
Very attentive, thorough. Dr. Kass gave the impression that he really wanted to understand the underlying nature of my problem. He took the time to explore my medical background. Never felt rushed.
Dr. Kass is a truly talented doctor. He uses much more modern technology than other ENTs and takes the time to carefully explain and show you what he is doing. I feel like I really understand what is going on inside my nose now!
Excellent, he is thorough and professional. He uses the latest technology for diagnosis and is clearly an expert in his field.
Dr. Kass was extremely thorough, professional and friendly in diagnosing my salivatory stone issue. He was able to remove the stone immediately in his office, with little discomfort. I googled ENT's in the area, and his name came up under several search engines - the positive feed back regarding his abilities and the fact that I was able to get right in, made me choose to see him. His thoroughness, professionalism and friendliness is what will make me go back - and recommend his services to others.
Very knowledgeable and helpful physician! Would refer friends and family if they require ENT services.
I highly recommend Dr. Kass' services. He is thorough, skilled, technologically savvy, and has a great personality.
I wish every doctor was as patient and knowledgeable as dr.kass. I really appreciate the paperless system and high tech gadgets. He was in no rush to get me in and out. Sat and went over every detail about my problem and options to remedy it. A+++++.
He ia an excellent ENT doctor and really takes all the time in the world to do what is right for the patient
Very informative and professional. Like the use of modern technology from making appointment to recieving information on my treatment.
Very thorough and not the usual get you in and out as soon as possible. Good doc and definitely worth visiting
I was initially surprised to find that Dr Kass has not front desk staff. I'm used to large offices with teams of people. But I read nothing but rave reviews of Dr Kass prior to booking my appointment, so I kept an open mind. Dr Kass worked as part of a large practice a while back, but 3 years ago started his own practice. Dr Kass is a doctor who truly cares about what he does. He takes his time to talk you through your issues and options. He's thorough and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an ENT.
Incredibly knowledgeable. Explains everything thoroughly. Listens well and targets the problem.
I felt comfortable with him. He listen to you very well and explain every thing slowly and clearly no rush or quick .
Dr. Kass is incredibly thorough -- he listens to you, and he follows up on your concerns. He really seems to care about you as a person, as a "whole," however cliche that sounds. He's not "just" interested in the ear-nose-throat, he's interested in your overall health and well-being.
Parking is an issue. I got a parking ticket for an expired meter, the practice does not have a parking lot. Dr. Katz is a very good doctor. He was very personable. I appreciate the paperless approach his practice takes. He took enough time to get all my medical history, and carefully explained my options for treatment.
Dr. Kass is a very personable, thorough, and professional physician. He fit me in on short notice and was extremely helpful.
Dr Kass was able to identify and resolve problems I had been having with nose bleeds, where other ENTs were not. He is thorough and focused.
He is the absolute BEST!!!! Dr. Kass is from a rare breed of doctors that is actually very much concerned about your well-being.
Dr Kass seemed genuinely interested in he issues I have and I will be continuing my treatment with him
Dr. Kass is amazing. Great doc patient rapport. Extremely knowledgable and able to communicate in regular people vernacular. I look forward to working with him.
He was incredibly caring, gentle, informative, concerned and competent. only ENT who got appt immediately for sudden hearing loss due to an infection.
I was very happy with the service he provided. I highly recommend Dr. Kass.
excellent knowledge base. very competent. listens carefully
I tried booking an appointment on a Saturday but the earliest appointment available on ZocDoc was for the following Monday. I booked the appointment as an 'emergency ENT' since I was feeling pretty aweful. Once I booked the appointment, Doctor Kass called me right away asking about my symptoms. After he spoke to my husband (since I couldn't talk) he determined that it was indeed an emergency and moved the appointment to see me that afternoon. He carefully and thoroughly examined me, explaining each step, and after walking me through the results, he was patient enough to answer my questions and concerns (told me to call if I had). He also explained the medication he'd prescribe and booked me a follow up appointment on the spot. Sure, the medicine and time will probably heal me soon enough... but the empathy and care shown by Dr. Kass helped me get there halfway. I feel like I'm in good hands! He is an excellent doctor. Highly recommended.
Great bedside manner, thorough & knowledgeable
It was great.
Dr. Kass was an amazing finding after months changing ENT doctors. He was the only one who actually looked at me and used his medical gadgets to find out what was wrong with me. Im still on treatment but I betting he is the one who will make me feel myself again.
Excellent practice and even better doctor. Very professional, organized, and took a great interest in investigating my reasons for an appointment. Very knowledgeable on topics related to my problem areas and definitely look forward to seeing him again. Shocked at the extended amount of time he spent with me. It's rare to find that quality today. Exceptional and would highly recommend.
Fantastic office visit. Finally, a Doctor who actually talks to you and wants to listen to what you have to say. A genuine professional.
Excellent MD who is super smart, efficient, highly skilled and knows his field. He never pushes any treatment like some MD's. He lays out the options and allows, you the patient, to have a say in the decision making process. Dr. Kass has a great demeanor and always has time to address any concerns or questions you might have as a patient. I highly recommend this practice.
He is a wonderful doctor!
He was very informative. I like to know how a doctor thinks and he not only stepped me through what he was doing, he was very responsive to my questions and concerns.
Dr Kass is really nice. I set up an appointment on Friday, but I accidentally arrive a day earlier. I was a new patient and everything went smooth and quick. He went through everything thoroughly and help me understand what could have been possible reasons why I had this infection.
As a health care clinician for over 24 years, I haven't met a more qualified, competent and thorough provider as Dr. Kass. He has a remarkable ability to diagnose, explain and treat complex issues. Dr. Kass is the definitive authority on ENT conditions.
Doctor Kass was excellent. Patient and always explained everything fully with risks, upside and what to expect. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Kass is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. He took plenty of time with me not only to diagnose and treat the problem I had come in for, but also to review risk factors I had for other problems and that were right on target given my family history. I feel like I was truly cared for, not just moved through and checked off a list. I also loved that his entire practice is electronic (e.g., he emailed my copay receipt); it's the way every practice should be but so few are.
I thought that Dr. Kass was quite thorough and a very good listener, which I believe is they key to giving an accurate diagnosis. Now days it is very difficult to find doctors that pay attention to the human part. Dr. Kass also explained very well all the procedures he was performing.
Dr. Kass is extremely thorough and knowledgeable and is very patient with his patients! My wife and I have both seen him for 2 appointments each and could not be more happy with his service. A++
Very kind and professional doctor. Highly recommended!
Friendly, knowledgeable, professional & thorough!
Dr. Kass was one of the best doctors I have ever met and the experience should set the standard for physician appointments... Dr. Kass listened carefully, did not rush and prescribed a proper treatment. The examination was very thorough and he was proactive in explaining every detail. His knowledge and professionalism were very impressive. I will definitely be recommending him to family and friends.
Excellent, very thorough.
Dr. Kass was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. The service was quick and superb!
It's exactly as the other commentators described: Dr. Kass is a one-man band, and an amazing doctor. He is conscientious, diligent, and fastidious about doing it right, and he will bring that same level of focus and diligence to resolving your issue. Go to Dr. Kass and you will be rewarded with something that is exceedingly rare in our modern world — a doctor who gives you his full and undivided attention.
I think this was the best doctor's visit I've ever had! Dr. Kass was very attentive and extremely informative; explaining all the results of tests that were done and answering any questions I had. Most doctor's visits are over in five minutes or less, but not with Dr. Kass! I would highly recommend him and I am telling all my friends about him!
Dr Kass is the most professional, personal, caring physician Ive ever been treated by. He cares much more about his clients health and well being than worrying about his hourly rate and how many he can cram in a day. Im always willing to wait to see him as I know he is giving his all to the patient ahead of me!
professionally, excellent job.
Very thorough examination with pictures and explanations of problem areas. Great insight regarding how to solve the future occurence of allergies.
The best doctor I have ever been to in my life; and he continues each time I see him to impress me with his knowledge, care, concern and amount of time he spends with me.
Very detailed and pleasant bedside manner. Would go back if I had the need.
He is very knowledgeable and took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Kass!
Great doctor, and great person. Takes time and explains everything clearly!
Erik is a great doc. He keeps a video of my ears, nose, and throat from each visit. We were able to compare how my ear drums look today to how they looked a year ago after a scuba diving incident. I also like that there's no waiting before the appointment. He's professional and personable.
Dr Kass is professional, very attentive, and explains your diagnosis with clear language and helpful diagrams. He took care of my symptoms and was extremely thorough. I recommend him.
Excellent doctor. Highly recommended!
Very informative and helpful
Dr. Kass is very knowledgeable, professional, takes time to answer any questions or any concerns. Highly recommend Dr. Kass.
Dr. Kass is an excellent doctor. He was professional but warm, very informative without being pedantic, and has a great sense of humor and clearly is very skilled. I have already recommended him to my family and friends!
Dr. Kass is a very good doctor. He took care of my problem completely and was a pleasure to deal with. I recommend him highly.
He's awesome! I'm very impressed on how efficient he was. I'm amazed by how he can do everything by himself and still make the office run smoothly compared to other doctor's offices I have been to. He took his time explaining everything to me without making me feel rushed. Highly recommend him to anyone suffering with allergies.
I was impressed with his service which was very timely and proffesional.
Wow. Dr. Kass is amazing! He is patient and humble, but so knowledgeable and intelligent at the same time. He listened to all of my concerns and was able to come up with a fair treatment plan of action. He admitted that he wasn't quite sure what the answer was, but knows something is definitely going on and assured me he would help me until we figured it out. He looks at the body as a whole instead of patching a symptom. I think I have finally found a doctor who will help me find some answers and that is hard to find these days! He even took a video of my ear, nose and throat and was able to play it back for me to see. Highly recommend!
He was really thorough and professional. I liked his immediate video of my nose and throat, and the comparison videos to show me how mine is different. I will follow up with his recommendations, and see what happens. Hopefully I will not be tired all the time any more.
This was the best, most personal experience I've had.
By far the most understanding, interested and likable doctor I have ever been to. My concern was taken seriously and I felt immediately at ease with Dr. Kass. So glad to have found him. I believe I will finally be well!
I think I got a gem today when I had my visit/appointment with Dr. Kass. Dr. Kass is very professional, knows his stuff, took care of my problem, explained everything in detail and was very personable too. Can't imagine finding a doctor like him these days, except for a few. I highly recommend him and will tell my friends and family about him, which by the way I already did after my appointment today!
He's a one-man show who has it all under control. Easy to get an appointment and knows what he is about.
Dr. Kass was amazing as usual today. His holistic approach to the body allows him to diagnose problems correctly without making rash recommendations. His suggestions always work. This is what all doctors should be like.
Very good and professional, Spent a lot of time on the computer and a little with me.
Dr. Kass was very professional and thorough. I would reccommend him to a friend.
Dr. Kass is a terrific ENT who goes out of his way to make sure he gives you the time and attention that you need. Incredibly thorough and receptive to questions/concerns. Doesn't approach issues from a black and white perspective; rather, he seems to really try to understand the different pieces of a problem and then create a reasonable and safe approach to fixing it. He's cautious but fully willing to encourage patients to take the next step in their medical treatment when appropriate.
All doctors should have his "bedside manner" - he is very thorough, takes as much time as the patient needs, and builds a comfort level by talking to the patient as though they are a friend or family.
Truly a pleasure!!
Dr. Kass was thorough and friendly. Exactly what I want from a medical professional.
Excellent! Dr. Kass is by far one of the best physicians I have ever been treated by. I have total confidence in his abilities and medical advice. Very glad to have found him again!
excellent, very personal
Incredibly knowledgeable and thorough. Will spend as much time with patient as needed and truly beyond. Exceptional professional who is solely focused on finding a solution and not banaiding the problem and moving you out. Surely, here is one doctor who certainly puts patient before $. Wow, I can't say enough - a total breath of fresh air....!! Almost too good to be called a "doctor". All from a person who is not easily impressed! Thanks doc!
I can hear! Thanks to Dr. Kass.
Dr.Kass was great. He listened to everything I said and even read the document I created to keep track of my issues over the past few months. He took his time and didn't rush ( I felt a little bad because I think he missed his lunch). It was just him, which was fine, he uses technology to his benefit and those he sees. He allowed questions and used his reasoning to work out some of my issues, some things can't be taught in school.
Excellent doctor, prompt, knowledgeable, efficient.
Kind and very explanative.
First appointment with Dr Kass. Office has convenient parking (check the instructions). I was able to fill out most paperwork online, with only a few things to do in the office. Dr Kass uses technology to his (and my) benefit. This includes not only the check-in process but also the examinations and prescriptions. I was given ample time for the examination, and lots of time to discuss his conclusions including insight from his experience working in his field for so many years. I appreciated the detailed communication and ample time for my concerns. I'll be looking forward to additional interactions with Dr Kass. Very highly recommended.
Dr. Erik Kass is very polite, personable, and understanding.
I'll make it short. Stay away from this guy.
He runs a boutique practice w/ excellent service.
Very satsfied. Dr Kass is very knowledgeable and efficient in his field. After thorough examination he does the diagnosis.
I saw him to get blood vessels in my nose cauterized due to daily nose bleeds. i asked him about this pain possibly triggering migraines and it did help stop the migraines from reoccurring. Dr. Kass is very knowledgeable and pleasant.
Very professional. He takes a lot of time to explain you everything he does, and discuss about the options you have. Totally recommended!
Dr. Kass is great. He did some sinus surgery on me about 10 years ago when I lived in Virginia and did an excellent job! I moved and it wasn't convenient to get to his office so I didn't see him until now when I was looking for an ENT for an ear infection. I was happy to see he had moved his practice to Maryland, not far from where I work and live. I was able to get an appointment right away and he took great care of me as always. Dr. Kass has a great approach and gives you straight answers to your questions. I recommend him to anyone who needs a down-to-earth doctor who cares about his patients.
i enjoyed the visit with dr kass and found him to be professional and given to thorough explanations when presenting his findings. at this point we await further diagnostics in order to completely assess the symptoms and form a diagnosis.
Excellent visit. I came with a minor problem, which Dr. Kass handled easily and gave me an extra overall advice in his area
Friendly, Informative, intelligent, excellent consult. Showed me video if inner ear. Have not had surgery done by him yet but would consider him in future.
Excellent ENT I was very happy with my service.
Dr. Kass is great at what he does and very thorough! He offers evening hours which are a big deal to me and is knowledgeable in fields that aren't even remotely related to his specialty. He's also honest and does not perform unnecssary procedures to jack up the cost. While my situation has no cure/remedy, I think he did an awesome job and if the need arises again for me or anyone in my family, I'll definitely schedule with him.
The Doctor was very Knowledgeable, he put me at ease and I was able to open up and ask all the questions that I needed! It was a big plus to meet him right as I entered the office, no third party ( receptionist) make it better for you to interact with the Dr.
Dr Erik Kass is very helpful ,very informative in his field .i strongly refer my friends to his office . nouri
very informative and great bedside manner
Dr Kass is great. I especially appreciate that he takes time to explain the diagnosis and answer questions. He even takes video of the ENT exam to play back so that you can see what he's talking about.
He's wonderful, very thorough, takes time to explain what he's doing, what the problem is, doesn't rush you. First appointment but thankful I was referred to him by my granddaughter. She thought he was wonderful, too. I'll refer him to anyone I know who needs an ENT doctor.
He does not cut corners.
Dr. Kass was very attentive, very informative. One of my best visits to a health care provider. Nice clean quite clinic. Same day or next day appointment. State of the art diagnostic equipments. I highly recommend Dr Kass for any of your Ear Nose Throat check up.
He was very professional. I still have to have an audiological evaluation and get back to him.
How refreshing to go to a doctor who is thoughtful, reflective, analytical and a good listener. These qualities are supplemented by the use of equipment that enables him to thoroughly inform and educate the patient, and himself.
Dr. Kass is wonderful as usual! He takes his time to do a thorough assessment and listen to your concerns then explains what he sees and any treatment options. He's been very helpful in explaining ENT issues I've experienced throughout my life but didn't know the cause. I highly recommend him!
Generally he is prompt but today he was 30 minutes behind schedule. Great doctor, very professional.
I felt that Dr. Kass listened intently to my symptoms. His exam seemed thorough; he offered what I thought to be viable solutions. I plan on seeing him again, and have already recommended him to others.
Great as always. Terrific with kids.
Dr. Kassel was extremely thorough, easy to talk to and used some neat technology to illustrate his findings. Overall, a very positive experience!
I love him he was one of the best Doctor I have ever seen. I would recommend to anyone,he was very professional,great eye contact,explained everything in detail,nice and friendly made me feel very comfortable. Thank you zocdoc for helping me find him.
Amazing doctor! I wish he could be my primary doctor... Even though I did not have anything major, he took his time to explain all the possibilities why I had a pain in my ear. Dr. KASS answered all my questions and concerns. He is one of the few doctors left who's main priority is a patient. I got first class tour of the innards of my ear canal. ;) He explain everything from the video feed he made during examination.Thank you very much Doctor Kass. That was verynice to meet you!
I have never had such a thorough, helpful experience with a doctor. Dr. Kass spent nearly 1 1/2 hours with me, diagnosing my condition, discussing the options and suggesting follow up. I am amazingly impressed with him and am lucky to have found him on ZocDoc.
Efficient, wonderful with kids.
I thought the Dr was excellent. He has his own system of recording video of your ear, nose, throat. He will review it all with you. He could tell me things about myself going back to childhood! Easy does it on the paper work- he keeps it to a minimum. Great experience and on a Saturday too. He is highly trained and skilled at what he does. Could not go to any other ENT now that I have found Dr Kass.
He was super knowledgeable and I appreciate that he didn't dumb down anything. He gave a very comprehensive evaluation and consultation. He seemed very perceptive and a great listener. I feel that he laid out all the options for me and allowed me to understand and monitor my conditions better.
Dr. Kass is very caring and took the time to listen to my problems. Additionaly, making an appointment was very easy using their online appointment book ( i needed to make an appointment during the weekend). I like everything about the doctor, except the parking.
Great Doctor! Very informed and very informative. Really takes the time to explain all particulars and answer all questions in a personable & friendly manner.
Great doctor who was very very quick to see his patient. I scheduled my appointment literally the day before and he was able to accommodate me. He has really neat tools that allowed me to see inside my throat ear and nose. Also, great convenient location. Highly recommended.
This guy is great! Very thorough. Got to the bottom of my tonsillitis diagnosis quickly when other doctors had failed to identify my ailment. Very good at walking me through the problem and the solution without leaving out details or sounding patronizing. Great doctor!
He saw me right away. Has a clean office. Listened carefully. Explained his observations and conclusions using a web cam video showing the inside of my nose. Gave me options medically and financially. Definitely earned a five star rating.
Excellent doctor. I was late for my appointment and he still saw me right away and with a smile. Quickly diagnosed my condition and put me on an aggressive course of treatment.
Dr Kass is outstanding specialist. At my first visit he impressed me with his knowledge, thoroughness, patience and communication skills. I'm very pleased.Easy scheduling,prompt service, great problem solving.
Very competent. Cares very much about the patient. Thorough and methodical. I would highly recommend him. Also very friendly.
Dr. Kass took a thorough history and gave me a detailed clinical exam. He developed a plan of care that is comprehensive... AND, he made it all seem effortless!
Very professional and thorough. Much better than the last ENT doctor I saw in Gaithersburg.
One thing I like about this office is that Dr. Kass has excellent beside manner and he spends quality time with you and go over each issue (if you have one). He makes recommendations to remedy your problem. Like the personalization he provides.
He was really good. His office is very high tech and he spent plenty of time explaining things.
Dr. Kass was very informative, and super thorough. I will be returning to use Dr. Kass!
Dr. Kass is an all-around incredible doctor. He is open-minded when it comes to diagnosing problems and explains all your options in an understandable way, but isn't condescending like many doctors are (i.e. doesn't dumb it down). He was extremely patient (no pun intended :-) with my questions and he didn't jump straight to prescribing pills. He spent just under 2 hours going over all my questions and educating me about common causes for the health concerns I was having. No wait time. Free parking in a nearby house's driveway, just ask about it before you go. And he does a comprehensive test of the ears, nose and throat with a video camera that he walks you through after. Nothing but great things to say about him.
A thorough exam. Was not rushed. Dr. Kass answered all my questions in great detail...just what one likes to see in a doctor.
Very professional. Very, very thorough. Explained every part of the exam. Very patient. Excellent doctor!! Loved him. Easy going personality. Office is very well organized. I have tremendous confidence in his ability as an ENT. I would, and have already, highly recommend Dr. Erik Kass with no hesitations.
I checked his educational background as well as his research experience. He is one of the best doctors I've met. He took the time to explain about my condition, and my options. I highly recommend him.
Was able to fit me in when others where closed or not taking patients. thank you for the dedication to patients.
HE IS THE BEST ENT doctor Ive encountered in all my 78 years
He's very professional. I will recommend him to my friends
The appointment was for my 91 year old mother who has dementia and he was very good with her.
Other than a lack of signage out front...
Took care of my issue very quickly and thoroughly.
He is just the BEST Doctor I have ever been too with his thoroughness; time spent with patient; and his overall demeanour
Very informative and knowledgable.
I thought Dr. Kass was great! There's something to be said about the care you receive from a private practice; there's just no comparison. He spent a lot of time with me ensuring I understood the diagnosis, treatment, and next steps. I feel so lucky to have found him!
He is excellent, thorough, and professional. He is caring and gets to the root of the problem. I feel confident in his abilities.
Happy that Dr. Kass was able to see me with next day appointment.
Fast and efficient.
I was very impressed with Dr. Kass. I have been to other ENTs and I never had the time spent with me that he spent. He explained everything and listened to what I was saying. I felt like a person and not just a number to be pushed through. He gave me a good feeling that I would have positive results with a problem that I have had for a long time.
We had a great experience with Dr. Kass.
Highly recommended. Dr. Kass took a video of the entire exam. Afterwards he walked me through the video and explained everything going on (blown ear drum). Having been to many ear doctors I would rate him as one of the best.
Thorough, knowledgeable, excellent
Excellent, would recommend
Dr. Kass does a fantastic job of explaining exactly what was happening, treatment actions moving forward and timeline expectations for feeling better!
One of the most communicative, articulate, educated, skilled doctors I have ever met. Dr. Kass is an excellent listener; he focuses in on what your issue, explains things in terms you can understand, makes you feel comfortable and knows exactly what he's doing during the exam. 5 stars!
Dr. Kass runs an efficient and respectable practice. He keeps me informed of what he is doing, shows me what he sees (using cameras) and explains to me in lamens terms what is going on. Truely impressed. He uses technology in a way that is sensitive to both the patients time and his time. He is also really good about getting back to his patients before the end of the business day. His office is easy to get to and he even has weekend hours, perfect for the working professional.
HE WAS VERY THOROUGH AND RELIEVED THE PROBLEM AND FOUND AN INFECTION AND TREATED IT. ALL BETTER NOW.
Erik is very knowledgeable. He took a video of my ears, nose, and throat, and showed me what was happening with my ears, as well as the progress after treatment. Very cool!
After seeing several doctors in our area Dr. Kass was the only one that was able to offer a comprehensive diagnosis of my son's problem and begin a treatment to address the situation. A real doctor. thank you.
It went very well. No problems.
Dr. Kass was great. My babysitter cancelled at the last minute so I had my daughters (3yrs & 5yrs) with me and he took it all in stride. He was efficient, focused,helpful, kind and gave me great care. I am so happy to have found such a good ENT.
Very Professional and effective
I felt totally loved and taken care of. Very competent and informative.
Dr Kass is superior to any other doctor or medical professional I have seen. I feel so lucky to have been referred to him by a family member. Dr. Kass spent over an hour with me during my first visit and that has never happened in my entire life!
He was professional and thorough and solved our problem.
Dr. Kass was very well informed and took time to talk with me about my symptoms and how to address them. The exam was very thorough.
Dr. Kass was thorough and knowledable. Highly recommended.
He helped me with my ENT and my derm problem as well!
