Dr. Tay is a fantastic, knowledgeable physician and I highly recommend him. The ONLY problem is the front office staff. They cannot get their act together in regards to health insurance. I know my benefits and it's a constant argument at EVERY visit about how much my out-of-pocket is.

I have had several appointments with Dr. Tay’s office over the past 2-3 months and have found this office to be very efficient and very professional. Dr. Tay is superb and one thing I really like about him is he asksyou after discussing your case if you have any questions and if you do, he answers those questions to your complete satisfaction. You don’t go home without a clear understanding of what your case involves and how it is going to be treated.

I was pleased to find Dr. Tay. I have had a rough time finding a doctor who understands the importance of hormone therapy for men. Believe it or not there still seems to be few doctor's familiar with testosterone therapy orrefuse to bring any legitimousy to it. If you think you may be having a problem with testosterone production you should make an appointment with Dr. Tay immediately.

So far so good - painless procedure and no complications like I've heard of with others who have had a vasectomy. He came well recommended by an R.N. medical sales friend who knows the doctors in the valley and considers Dr. Tay the best.
